This is an exceptional example of a rare 1969 911T with Sportomatic transmission.
Purchased by us from the USA in October 2013, this matching number 1969 911T with Sportomatic transmission has undergone a full restoration. This work has been conducted over the last four years by ourselves and Porsche Approved Body Shop. With a recorded 41,847 miles and extensive history folder including COA and original parts, this is an excellent opportunity to purchase what we considered to be the best available example. This is an ideal car for those days out in the countryside and should be a great long term investment.
The car is unregistered, so the buyer will be the first owner. The car comes with a new MOT and is European compliant - all original parts have been retained.
Early in 2016 the car was examined by Porsche. Whilst there were a few repairs to the floor in the past, the decision was taken to completely renew the floor of the car. They were able to find an original floor at Porsche Germany, and this was installed over a period of a several months. The floor has been installed as it left the factory with attention to detail in how it would have been painted in 1969, whilst using modern protection materials. This is a car that could be driven during the winter without fear of rust.
The semi-automatic transmission known as Sportomatic had a conventional synchromesh gearbox along with a torque converter and a normal clutch which was controlled by a vacuum controlled lever. Shifting gears without a clutch pedal to press resulted in very smooth changes and a more relaxed drive when compared to its manual siblings. Over the decades many of these transmissions were converted to manual transmission which means there are very few left that work as well as this one does.
The engine has been rebuilt, with the original carbs refurbed to new. It starts first time even when laid up for long periods.
It is a stunning car that is approaching 50 years of age.
