We are pleased to offer on behalf of one of our clients this highly attractive 1968 Porsche 911 L Targa.
Finished in special order canary yellow (R1012) over black interior, this short wheel base Targa stands out immediately. The car has been with the same owner for 33 years and as an active PCA member he has enjoyed the car in many touring events and has never missed a Monterey Historic event since 1985. The car took 3rd place in the Monterey Porsche Parade in 2014 and was also featured in the S-registry Esses magazine in 2016.
The car came to the present owner with 104k miles in 1985 from a good friend who was the second owner and drove most of the cars miles. The body was resprayed in 1984 in its correct canary yellow and the engine was also rebuilt at that time. Since 1985, the car was driven about 46k miles and it runs and drives wonderful. The 2.0l power plant develops 130hp and moves the lightweight Porsche with ease. The 5 speed transmission shifts tight and the car goes down the road very well. A joy to to drive.
This is a western car which lived only in California and since 2006 in Nevada. Very solid floors with no apparent corrosion problems. The body is nice and straight with very good panel and door fit tolerances. Both doors close with the typical Porsche “door ping”! The car has never had a full restoration and aside from the outside paint, carpets and headliner, the car is very original and in excellent condition. The correct Fuchs wheels have been refurbished by Al Reed and are wrapped in brand new Yokohama tires.
1968 marked the last year for the short wheel base cars for Porsche and the L (Luxury) has all the features of an S aside from the non EPA compliant S engine.
This is a very nicely documented and enthusiast owned 911 with just the right amount of patina. Numbers matching with Certificate of Authenticity and accompanied by factory owners- and service manuals, period Porsche brochures, jack and toolkit.
Please study all the photos closely to evaluate the condition of this car!
