A Clean Slate of Gray
It a takes a serious 911 enthusiast to own a car like this - one that harkens back to the earliest 911 design. This is the 911 in its rawest form, luxuriously tailored and performance-tuned for summertime driving near the mountains and canyons of Boulder, Colorado.
Early 911 Design
1968 was the last model year for the short-wheelbase 911’s - an iconic silhouette shaped by the passion to create the perfect sports car. It arrives painted in its original shade of Slate Gray with polished aluminum accents and a Durant vintage exterior mirror. Our client opted for two sets of wheels - a period-correct set of 15”x5.5” steel wheels for the concours and a set of 15”x6” Minilites for spirited everyday driving.
It isn’t unusual for early 911 owners to seek out the twist and turns of vacant roads, where the 911 demands their full attention. We suspect the new owner of this 911 will do the same. It’s an obsession fueled by the sound of the flat-six engine and an unparalleled connection to the road - made all the more otherworldly with a series of carefully chosen upgrades. The engine was rebuilt to 2.2-liter specifications, and all systems were completely revamped and revitalized, including the transmission, exhaust, suspension, and steering. Now, finding new roads for the 911 will become the ultimate pursuit.
Like all early 911’s this one is an exercise in simplicity. The cockpit has been wrapped in black leather and luxurious vintage-style carpeting. The A/C and original sound system were replaced with modern counterparts that complement the original design. Behind the wheel, all gauges and controls are refurbished and fully operational, leaving no doubt that the legend is back.
