SUMMARY

Offered directly from the collection of Richard Hammond, an early 2.2-litre, C-Series 911 from sunny California.

DESCRIPTION

  • The 1970 Model/Year cars were the first to benefit from the enlarged 2.2-litre engine
  • 125bhp, 911T delivered initially to California and remaining in left-hand drive
  • Classically presented in Silver Metallic with polished Fuchs 5-blade alloys
  • The indicated mileage is around 56,000 which Richard believes could well be genuine
  • In lovely original condition, both inside and out

Porsche's long-running and much-loved 911 sports car first appeared at the 1963 Frankfurt Show as the '901', but shortly after production proper commenced in 1964, it had become the '911' following Peugeot's complaints about the use of '0' model numbers. The preceding Type 356's rear-engined layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the bodyshell and dropped the 356's VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing-arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled, flat-six engine displaced 1,991cc and the first of countless upgrades to the perennial 911 came in 1966, two years after production had commenced, with the introduction of the 911S and, in 1967, the 911T (Touring). Further revisions were made in 1969 when the 911's wheelbase  was extended by 57mm, which transformed the handling of the car and paved the way for the 911 to become one of the greatest driving experiences ever.  For model-year 1970, (production from mid-1969), the engines of all C & D-Series 911s were increased to 2,195cc.

This, very early, left-hand drive, 1969 911 2.2-litre 'T' was initially delivered to California and appears to be in lovely condition, both inside and out. It's classically presented in Silver Metallic with polished Fuchs 5-blade alloys and the indicated mileage is around 56,000 which Richard believes could well be genuine, given the car's original condition.

Early 911s possess a certain purity of line, particularly in bright colours, a complete world away from the aerodynamic extravagances of the eighties and nineties, and in terms of style, it's the early cars that engender the most appreciative glances. A well set-up and maintained 911T,even with only 125bhp, when driven with an intelligent right foot will provide some of the most quintessentially rewarding driving experiences you have ever had, and will leave you with a serious grin on your face!
