1969 Porsche 911T

I love this 911T for a couple of reasons. First, it’s hard to find one-owner vintage 911s like this. Second, in addition to having had just one owner, this 911 comes with a full service history. And last, but not least, it’s a striking Bahama Yellow hue — Porsche color code 110.

The T was the only carbureted 911 available in 1969, as the higher horsepower E and S models came with fuel injection. The base price was $5,995 compared with over $7k for the more powerful versions, allowing drivers to enjoy sublime 911 handling at a lower price point.

The original owner reportedly picked it up in Germany and exported it to Southern California. The seller mentions a full service history, which in this case means a 4-inch thick binder with files for every year containing individual receipts, as well as the original window sticker and invoice. It’s a gold mine of data on the car — a collectors’ dream. Any questions you have about the car’s history should be readily answered.

Appealing options include a power sunroof, attractive stainless trim and muffler skirt, and dealer-installed air-conditioning. The interior is exceptionally clean, with only light use showing on the driver’s seat, giving me doubts of its originality. But considering how attentive the original owner was, it very well could be original.

In the past year, 25 1969 Porsche 911Ts have sold on eBay Motors. The best examples averaged over $30k. Not many can claim single ownership and full service history, which have already driven this one’s price well beyond that range. Click here to see the auction listing.

    I’m always looking at cars and one of my pet peeves is the “original owner” or one owner statements. Since this car was purchased from the original owners’ widow and then driven 2400 miles across country, it is now a two owner car. Yeah, I know it’s nit-picky and in this case the owner doesn’t try to hide the fact that he bought the car. But the value behind buying from the original owner is that you get first hand knowledge of the car, it’s history, driving style, maintenance records, etc. etc. I think it’s a little disingenuous to advertise a car this way. Bottom line, if you’re not the original owner of the car, you really shouldn’t advertise it as a one owner car. And with a car like this, saying something like one owner for 40 odd years takes nothing away from the value. In fact, the honesty only enhances it for me.
