The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

After the fourth-series 356 model, referred to as the C, made its debut in 1964, Porsches next model, the 911 series, was already on Ferdinand Butzi Porsches drawing board. The new Porsche remained rear-engined with a unit-body chassis, but the four-cylinder was replaced by a smooth two-litre air-cooled flat-six mated to a four- or five-speed all-synchromesh transmission.
The 911 was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September 1963, meeting all the criteria set out by Dr Porsche. It resembled the previous model but was more powerful, smoother, quieter, and had more space for people and luggage than the 356. The 911 body was functional and breathtakingly attractive in an ageless design that has remained remarkably consistent and incredibly pure to the original design right up to the current 911 offerings.
By 1972, the year of the attractive and fully restored example presented here, the engine displacement had been increased to 2,341 cc (2.4 litres) which produced 140 hp in the 911 T version. An interesting feature for the 1972 model year was that all 911s for that model year boasted an external oil-filler cap on the right-hand side in addition to the usual fuel-filler cap at the front left. This would lead to confusion at petrol stations, so the external oil-filler cap was removed for the following year, making this a one-year-only feature. Acquired by the current owner from a vendor in California roughly five years ago, at the time the 911 T was purchased as a restoration project and subsequently shipped home to Spain.
There, the 911 T underwent an extensive restoration and is presented in incredible condition today. Taken to bare metal and properly prepared with new metal where required, it was then painted in a gorgeous shade of medium grey and upholstered in black leather with black carpeting. Providing a beautiful contrast to the paint, a proper set of polished Fuchs wheels complete the cars iconic good looks.
With photographs and invoices chronicling the restoration over the course of the past two years, this 911 is ready to be driven and enjoyed by its next lucky custodian.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/lf19.
