Originally owned by Fla Lewis of Denver, Colorado, this fantastic 1971 911 2.2 S remained in the family for two decades. In 1991, the current owner, who was acquainted with the Lewis family, acquired the superbly maintained Porsche as a high school graduation gift for her son. While the son drove it for a short while, his parents bought the car back from him to facilitate the payment of student loans.

The 911 sat in storage for several years before being treated to necessary refurbishment between 2009 and 2014. The suspension and brakes were rebuilt in 2009 before a comprehensive engine rebuild in 2010 by the experts at PMCI in Corrales, New Mexico. In 2013, the cherished 911 was sent to Classic Investments of Englewood, Colorado, and received selective and sympathetic restoration work. Relevant metalwork was performed, an exacting finish in the original Porsche Metallic Green was applied, the Fuchs wheels were restored, and a new black leatherette interior was fitted. Systems were gone through as necessary, and all functions rendered fully operational. Immediately on completion in 2014, the car was presented with an award in the Sports and GT Class at the Santa Fe Concorso.

Presented with the Porsche COA, a portfolio of receipts for more than $80,000, tool kit, and with very few post-rebuild miles on the clock, this unique Porsche 911 2.2 S is eligible for PCA Club events, shows, and tours and will undoubtedly provide its next partner with an exhilarating experience.
