Hey, there’s nothing wrong with being 50. Not when you are in good…errr…decent shape anyway, and you watch your diet, and exercise, wear black a lot, and have a good personality…oh wait did I say that out loud? I’m fine. Really. No it’s not a sensitive topic. What? I can’t hear you. Stop talking about it now. Fine.
This half-century-old handsome classic, has what one would call “distinguished features” like salt-and-pepper hair, chiseled facial structure, and nary a muffin top in sight. Darnit, I meant chrome trim pieces and clean lines… Anyway, this svelte Porsche in slate grey has eponymous lettering on the door to tell you back in the day who was responsible for this sports car that had been around for about 5 years, and optimistically what it would become 50 years later (an automotive icon).
This air cooled, rear engine mainstay of the German sports car industry really never strayed too much visually from the early days, even if the digital age cars suffer from what we can euphemistically call “vanity sizing”. I suspect it’s the hormones in the milk.
But this example of the famous Porsche 911 is in absolutely fantastic condition, or as some would backhandedly say “well preserved”. But when I say well preserved I mean it. This 1969 model is in all original condition, with even original paint. The seller has extensive documentation that includes even maintenance records which goes back to the days of the Bee Gees. Don’t ask me how I know who the Bee Gees are.
The 2.2 liter engine originally put out 123 HP and is said to run like new and the manual transmission shifts well. Radio is in operating condition and even comes with a certificate of authenticity and the original owners manual.
Bidding on ebay at the time of this writing is at $44,300 and this distinguished gentleman looks to be most certainly worth the cabbage. Or is it sauerkraut? Let’s not argue about whose wurst is best, just click HERE to take you to the auction action on ebay street.
