1968 Porsche 911 S Targa Restored Tangerine Numbers Matching COA description
Collectors prize the '68 S for a number of reasons, not the least of which is scarcity -- Porsche only manufactured 442 '68 S Targas, none of which went to the U.S. It's also the final year for the short wheelbase. Chassis number 11850132 was completed in 11/67 and fitted with engine 4180069 (which is a rare early '68 aluminum case).
The car just saw a glass-out repaint finished to a concours standard; gaps are excellent and floor pans are original. We started with a straight, dry west coast car then fully disassembled it for a photo-documented nut-and-bolt restoration (note in particular photos of the floors stripped to bare metal before German Wurth undercoating was applied). Seals, gaskets and many fasteners are new, but much of the hardware was carefully reconditioned and reinstalled -- our philosophy is to preserve as much of the original car as possible. Lenses, trim, horn and engine grilles are in good original condition. Euro headlights with "city lights" plus Hella fogs. Period Amco bars. Rebuilt Targa top. New Vredstein sprint classics on date-correct (10/67) Fuchs refinished by Al Reed.
Interior retains original dash and door panels in very good condition; refinished wood wheel, restored gauges, period (and working) Blaupunkt. Mechanically well sorted, this 911 saw a complete suspension and brake overhaul when the car was reassembled after paint. Shocks, bushings, ball joints, tie rods, brake rotors, pads and calipers are all new or rebuilt. Original numbers-matching 2.0 liter S engine has correct accessories including relay panel, distributor, etc. Fresh service including valve adjustment. The car was born as a Sportomatic; at some point decades ago the Sporto was swapped out for a 901 five-speed manual (serial number 7112080).
A worthy addition to any collection finished in a spectacular original color. For more information about this 1968 Porsche 911 S Targa for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
