1965 Porsche 911 sidelined to 40 years due to an oil leak
This early production 1965 Porsche 911 is chassis #294, built in January 1965.
The car was purchased in 1973 by its current owner as a graduation gift to himself after finishing law school. He enjoyed the car for two years until it developed a small oil leak that he wasn’t capable of diagnosing himself, so the car was parked for the meantime until he could arrange getting it looked over.
Then, for lack of better reasoning, life happened…and the Porsche never made it to the top of the priority list. Four decades later the market for early cars has skyrocketed—which is what prompted the car being pulled out of the shed to get the care it deserves (and that oil leak finally fixed.)
The car has actually been sold back to Porsche and is going to the Porsche Classic Center Gelderland in the Netherlands where it will be restored to factory new condition.
