  • Wonderful Aga Blue over Beige color combination
  • Numbers-matching example; 78,874 original miles
  • Includes correct spare wheel, jack, and owner s manual
  • Porsche Production Specifications certificate


With the exception of the Volkswagen Beetle, the Porsche 911 boasts the most recognizable profile in the automotive industry. Now entering its 56th year of production, the 911 has proven to be an icon, and its earliest short-wheelbase version, introduced in late 1964, is both visually delightful and a joy to drive.

The 911 featured a two-liter, air-cooled, SOHC horizontally opposed six that delivered 130 hp at 6,100 rpm, along with 128 foot-pounds of torque. Dry-sump lubrication allowed a low engine placement, and thus a low center of gravity. Standard equipment included rack-and-pinion steering, a fully synchronized five-speed manual transaxle, independent suspension with McPherson struts and torsion bars in front and semi-trailing arms, torsion bars, and tubular shocks in the rear. There were also modern disc brakes at all four corners. The cabin was much more capacious than the earlier Type 356, and there was additional luggage space under the front lid.

The 911 handily outperformed its predecessor, offering strong acceleration and a top speed of 130 miles an hour. Because the 911 was considerably costlier than a 356, customers were slow to accept it, but as soon as Porsche launched, what would become an incredibly successful racing and rally program, enthusiasts around the world realized what a powerful, high-quality, multi-purpose sports car was available to them . . . and the legend was made.

This fully numbers-matching 65 911 was completed on 29 October 1965, departing the factory in the very elegant combination of Aga Blue over a Beige leatherette interior. The cockpit is highlighted by a warm wood veneer dashboard insert and wood-rimmed steering wheel with Butterfly horn button. It was modestly optioned with a Webasto gasoline heater, tinted glass all around, and a radio antenna kit. A Blaupunkt multi-band radio and speaker were installed, along with a pair of fog lamps, and a full set of factory chromed steel wheels bearing a manufacturing date of 4-64.

The consignor acquired this largely original 911 a dozen years ago from a family in Charleston, South Carolina. Although its earlier history is unknown, he notes that it is completely rust-free, perhaps due to it having been stored indoors for many decades. The odometer indicates 78,874 miles, which is believed to be correct. This desirable early 911 retains all its original sheet metal, glass, and all lighting assemblies. The paint and brightwork appear to be in excellent condition.

The consignor commissioned Gronbach Interiors of Gainesville, Florida, to replace the original upholstery with new cream Spinnybeck leather for comfort and longevity. New grey-blue German square-weave carpeting from Autos International was installed throughout, along with a new headliner. The consignor says he had the engine and brakes overhauled in Charleston soon after taking possession. There is now an electric fuel pump and an electronic ignition system.

This very attractive short-wheelbase 911 is supplied with a correct spare wheel and jack, a set of Coco mats, an owner s manual, and Porsche Production Specifications certificate, confirming its original drivetrain and color combination. It has been recently serviced and is ready to provide its next owner many more miles of driving enjoyment.
