It is rare that you can find a car this special with these type of owners and full history. This car was originally purchased at SAYERS PORSCHE - AUDI of Council Bluffs Iowa by William W. a Lieutenant Commander in the US Navy. The complete set of service records for the car start around December 1971 when the car had 1400 miles on it. Shortly after purchasing the car William was moved to Langley Virginia, service records document the mileage and location of the car for every place it has been. Around 1975 William sold the car to his dear friend Wayne T. who was also in the US Navy. Wayne was re-assigned at this time to the USS Gurnard, a Nuclear Submarine based out of San Diego California, the 911 came with him and has remained in San Diego ever since. Wayne was eventually promoted to Commander of the USS Drum SSN-667. These Submarines usually leave for over a year long deployment so mileage was never racked up on this Tangerine 911. How often do you see an early low mile 911 in the right color with above average ownership and full records?


This particular car is a keeper you will not find another car this nice, this well taken care of, or this original. It is a survivor condition well maintained example. It has never been fully torn apart, rusted or damaged in an accident so the car feels ultra solid as both doors have a unmistakable Porsche Ping sound when closed. This car wears all its original interior -carpet/headliner/vinyl, trim, glass, date matched wheels, panels, etc. The only major change was one quality repaint in the original color. The car still wears its original Sigla front windshield. Included with the car is an amazing 100% complete tool kit, jack, spare Fuch alloy, owner's manual, and complete history with all records from day 1.


The car has been in storage for the last 6 years. It has been started and run a few times by the local Italian marque shop....  they did right by calling us when the car came up for sale, we are the local vintage Porsche experts of San Diego. Now in our hands the car has been fully serviced and detailed and is ready to be driven by the new owner. As of May 2012 the entire brake system has been rebuilt, the engine has had a major service, all shift bushings have been replaced, pedal assy has been rebuilt, and a comprehensive detail has been done. Already done to the car was upgraded pressure fed chain tensioners, SSI stainless steel exhaust manifolds/heat exchangers, new muffler.

The 1972 model year 911 is often called “the engineers car” in that it is the very height of technology for all of the early 911 cars. Porsche enthusiasts regard this year as "the best year for the early 911." The last 2 years of the early 911 body style were amazing cars that were more fun to drive than any other competing car of that era. One of the reasons vintage Porsche cars are so popular today is because of the achievements of the 1972 and 1973 Porsche built creations. The 1972 model betters the ’73 because of its unique mid mounted oil tank which more evenly distributes the weight resulting in better handling performance. This more complex oil system was later simplified to reduce problems cause by people who misunderstood the car. The 73 model reverted to the previous rearward mounted oil tank because many 72 models were damaged by accidental filling of the oil tank with gasoline (The 72 oil tank filler looks very similar to the fuel tank fill on the driver’s fender). Since the location of the oil tank in 1972 was a one year only feature it makes these cars among the most sought after.
