Originally introduced in 1963 (and offered for sale 1964) the Porsche 911 was a successor to the 356. Initially badged as the 901 (until the Peugeot protested), then subsequently changed to the now recognisable model number of 911, the car featured an air cooled, rear mounted 2L flat 6 engine. This was mated to a four-speed manual gearbox.
This very early matching numbers Porsche with chassis number 882 was the first 911 to ever reach Australia and the 882nd built and is still presented in the correct Signalrot (signal red) colour. Manufactured in Stuttgart, Germany, this 911 left the factory on April 18th 1965. It was dispatched to a company called Kahrmann in Fulda, Germany where it was converted to right hand drive in preparedness for its shipment to Australia by its original owner Mr Michael B Shirley in NSW.
Shortly after arriving in Australia the car was sold to Arthur Hamilton (one of the founders of the Porsche Club of NSW) and became known as the “Hamilton Car”. Throughout the cars life it has had a limited number of owners and has been meticulously looked after.
The car is in fantastic original condition and comes complete with a with an extensive history file that includes a sales brochure, history and works carried out. This Porsche 911 represents an exciting opportunity to acquire a real piece of Automotive history with worldwide appreciation and regard.
