The transaxle was rebuild, the engine was pulled and serviced and the interior was treated to a carpet kit, new trim rubber and a thorough detail and service. 911S s/n 00017 is in excellent cosmetic condition. It was repainted to high standards in its original color when still with its first owner.

The paint is excellent, with only a few small blemishes and a slight color miss-match on the passenger’s door. The body panels are very straight with great fit and gaps. The correct trim is present and very nice, and the chrome appears to be original and is excellent with no significant pitting in evidence and only light scratches. Comes with an excellent set of Vredestein Sprint Classic V rate tires, with a matching spare on the correct Fuchs alloy wheel, mounted on the original 6Jx15 Fuchs front wheels and 7Jx15 Fuchs rear wheels, all in excellent condition. The original 6Jx15 rears are provided as spares. All lenses, lights and glass are in good condition. There is no corrosion and no signs of body damage or repairs. The interior and all leather panels and seats appear to be mostly original and in excellent condition. The dashboard is free of cracking, discoloration, and warping, and the instruments and controls are all in fine shape. The door panels, rear seats, parcel shelf, visors and headliner are all excellent as well and are of the correct type and are original. The door panels appear to be new. The steering wheel is excellent.

The engine compartment and trunk are correct and nicely detailed. The engine compartment is very clean and retains the correct red fan shroud fitted to the “S” engines. The full intake equipment is in place giving the overall impression of an unmolested and very well cared for car. The trunk conveys a similar impression, with a new carpet set in place. The battery box and suspension pan are excellent. The entire floor pan, wheel wells and undercarriage have been detailed and all are extremely nice. The chassis was repainted and is just about spotless, and there were no noted signs of accident damage or corrosion, past or present. The car runs and drives well and has the impressive linear power. The motor starts easily and the gearbox is excellent, even when cold. The steering is communicative and light and the brakes are powerful in the way that has made the 911 famous. The chassis is quiet, with no rattles and minimal wind noise and the wonderful sound of the flat six winding up. It is complete with an original tool kit and an original owner’s manual. It is an excellent driver, making a strong cosmetic impression and performs well across the board.
