For sale is a rare 1972 911T “long hood” Coupe, silver with black interior, electronic sunroof, air conditioning, original Porsche racing seats and original California Blue license plate, with 111,892 miles. This car is being offered at $69,900.

The '72 is a unique model in that it not only is the 1st year for the 2.4 liter engine, but it is the only year with the outside oil filler cap. This is a superb, accident free body with excellent paint and interior.  The dash has a small crack that was repaired and is now barely noticeable.  It has the original and working Becker Europa stereo.  Door panels are in good condition.  The headliner is original with two small tears (see pics). I am the second owner of this car and have owned it for 18 months.  

Eight months after the original owner purchased the car, while under warranty, Porsche replaced the engine.  I have all the Porsche documents showing that the engine was replaced by Vasek Polak in Hermosa Beach, CA.  The COA numbers match the engine that was removed, and the Vasek Polak stamp matches the engine number in the car (see pic).  
The car was repainted with the original color by the original owner.  There are a few small chips and scratches, which have never been repainted.  But, overall, the paint is beautifully polished and has been well cared for.  I replaced the front windscreen; there are two small scratches in it (but not in the driver’s field of view).

All gauges work and are in excellent condition, as well all lights (interior and exterior) operate and the lenses are in good condition.  The cigarette lighter does not work.  The wheels are very clean and the tires are new (less than 3,000 miles).  The carpets are outstanding and all original.

Early 911’s are rare finds today among collector cars. They have unparalleled drivability and usability, especially when compared with other cars of the same vintage. All early 911’s have appreciated tremendously in recent years. The late cars (1972 and 1973) are very desirable, and are generally regarded to be the ultimate development of the original ‘long hood’ 911.
