Sold new in 1973 by Vasek Polak Porsche to Paul Clack, this US-specification 911 T was purchased on November 1, 1977, by its second owner, Betty Madden, a young costume designer at Paramount Studios. Ms. Madden retained the 911 for the next 34 years before selling it in late 2011, at which time she provided purchase documents, service receipts, and a very personal letter describing her adventures with this beloved Porsche. The new owner commissioned a concours-level rotisserie restoration, documented with photos. Original sheet metal was retained, and the 911 T was finished in iconic Gulf Blue over Black and Pepita upholstery.

As offered, the 911 T is exceptional, and a true benchmark of quality. Notable features include correct Carello fog lamps, Blaupunkt Frankfurt radio, date-stamped Fuchs alloy wheels, and California emissions window decal. Outstanding additional items include the original owner’s manual and vinyl sleeve, concours-quality tool kit, jack and spare assembly, service receipts, restoration photographs, a corresponding Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche, custom Italian luggage, a Porsche Classic detail bag, and luggage straps. It was a winner at the July 2016 PCA Concours in Houston and was displayed at the November 2016 TejasTreffen. This stellar, final- year example of the classic “long hood” 911 is ideally suited for the true Porsche enthusiast in search of one of the finest examples of the 911 T presently available.
