From The James G. Hascall Collection

For the 1972 model year, Porsche again upgraded its 911 flagship. Mechanical changes included an enlarged 2.4-liter engine and a stronger Type 915 five-speed transaxle. To further enhance handling, the oil tank, which previously had been behind the right rear wheel, was moved in front of the wheel, with a filler added to the right rear quarter panel.

This lovely 1972 example was originally finished in the fantastic color combination of Albert Blue over Cork Leatherette, and equipped from the factory with a sunroof, Blaupunkt radio, Michelin tires, and the “E03 option” group, which denotes air-conditioning. Records on file indicate that the Porsche’s earliest owner was Dr. Robert Hazelwood, who owned the car by 1974, when he had it serviced by Norman Scott Porsche + Audi in Houston. The 911 S has received documented cosmetic, mechanical, and metal work over the years, with many receipts on file. Refinished in its original color of Albert Blue, this example now features a black interior with sport seats. Significantly, the 911 retains its matching-numbers engine according to its Porsche COA.

Accompanied by an owner’s manual, tools, jack, and spare, this 911 S benefits from an attractive older restoration and has been a part of The James G. Hascall Collection since 2006. With the rare combination of air-conditioning, sunroof, and Albert Blue paint, this example should be seriously considered by any 911 enthusiast or collector.
