Lot No.: 516

Engine Number: 6195730
Year of Manufacture: 1969
Sold for (£): 81,000
Production of this left-hand drive, Polo Red (6802) 911'T' was completed on the 7th January 1969, and on the 24th February 1969, it was registered at Competition Motors, the famous North Hollywood Porsche Dealership, before being delivered to its first owner Mr John Stanley Harlan with just 21 miles on the odometer.
Mr Harlan was a very meticulous custodian and kept all the paperwork for each and every service up until August 1986 when the car was then safely stored away. Since then it has covered a mere 150 miles passing from John Harlans ownership to its current UK owner in September 2012 where it has been stored as part of a private collection. Sadly John Harlan passed away shortly after selling this car on 4th December 2012. Now the time has come to downsize our vendor's special collection and as such this unmolested 1969 911T is up for auction, now fully UK registered with 12 months MOT and ready to go.
Matching numbers are confirmed by the Certificate of Authenticity which also lists the desirable extras fitted from new including tinted windows, antenna and loudspeakers. The car is fitted with the standard 4-speed gearbox which in itself is a rarity but is reported to be a pleasure to use. The engine retains all of its standard features and is very clean and presentable.
Underneath the car looks to be solid and straight and, whilst showing signs of use and obviously not restored, appears all correct and undamaged. The period paint coating retains a lovely patina except for a small patch where the brake master cylinder leaked at some point. The coachwork looks excellent with consistent panel gaps and the paintwork retains a remarkable depth of shine, particularly for a red car.
The car is accompanied by its original Owner's Manual, service book and wallet, and a number of service invoices. Effectively a one -owner car, this lovely 911T has never been restored, needs to be seen to be appreciated, and is a fantastic proposition for an astute buyer.
