1969 Porsche 911 T Karmann Coupe

1969 Porsche 911 T finished in Silver with a single Black Recaro seat. Currently configured as a race car but it is street legal and could easily be converted to a more comfortable street friendly set up. Personally, I love it just the way it is.

I sold this car to a client in North Carolina back in 2012. Prior to the sale, an extensive PPI was performed by Speedsport Tuning. The leak down test showed excellent results with no more than 3% leakage.

The car was purchased from Gary Hess in Pennsylvania. The two log books ( Both PCA/ Club Racing ) show it’s entire race history from 1999 through 2011. It has run with HSR, VRG and SVRA as well.

Mr Hess was extremely successful in this car from the start. Here are some race results from J Class in PCA.

I sold the car to Bob Hollingsworth from North Carolina in 2012 and it was sent to 901 Shop for extensive freshening and modifications. Some of the work that 901 Shop performed but is not limited to a new paint job, new headliner, the original matching numbers engine was fitted with S Pistons and cams, T Heads and was polished and balanced by Chick Coleman. At that time, a new clutch and flywheel, clutch cable tube, new fuel system including surge tank, pumps, regulators, filters, fittings pressure gauge as well as all new lines throughout were fitted. The matching numbers five speed transmission ( as confirmed by a Porsche C of A ) has an F main shaft, K third Gear, P fourth gear and V with gear as well as a Limited Slip Differential. A 901 Shop throttle kit was fitted as well as a 901 Shop Short Shift Kit with lockout. It is also fitted with Wevo engine and transmission mounts. The suspension is new with 901 Shop front sway bar, Elephant rear sway bar, Bilstein RSR Spec Struts and Shocks, Elephant poly bronze bushings, and Monoball trailing arm bushings. It was fitted with a new wiring harness and electrical system with light weight components. Lightweight front and rear bumpers were fitted. It has a new MSD 6AL ignition and coil, Lightweight windshield wiper system, complete new fire system and much more.

Upon my reacquisition of the car last year, it was sent to long time Porsche specialist and Race Car engineer, John Corson of Carrera 6 Racing where it was serviced and gone through with new Bosch H4 Euro Headlamps being fitted. Repairs were made to the steering linkage, the carbs were completely rebuilt, the fuel system was cleaned and gone through.

This is a very solid car with only a few repairs having been performed to the original rust free pan. There is no indication of any major accidents or damage. It is truly a turnkey race/street car that is ready to be enjoyed.

Please call to discuss any other details that you would like to know about.

Mark Starr has been buying and selling European and collectable cars since 1970. That was before he even had a drivers license. The love and passion for automotive design has been there since his early roots in Brooklyn starting with with MGs, Austin Healeys, Alfa Romeos and Porsches. He would search for cars through the Buy Lines and instead of partying with friends on a Saturday night, he’d await the early arrival of the Sunday NY Times and its automotive classified section. Although times and methods have changed, his passion for getting a jump on everyone and unearthing the best, rarest and most coveted cars remains to this day. Mark spent many years in the late 70’s and early 80’s as one of the first to import exclusive automobiles that ordinarily would not have graced our shores — Ferrari 308 Quattrovalvoles, 512BBs, Audi Sport Quattros, BMW M6s and powerful AMG tuned Mercedes Benzes. As a pioneering leader in the grey-market importation craze of the 80’s, Mark appeared on many television shows such as The Today Show and Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous as well as numerous articles in the NY Times and other periodicals. After several years in the menswear industry, the constant calling and deep rooted passion for automobiles led Mark back to his greatest passion and Hunting Ridge Motors Inc. was formed in 1995. His involvement, love and admiration for Lotus cars then led him to become an authorized Lotus dealer and at that time the largest Lotus dealer in the world. The passion now lies with the unearthing, restoration and marketing of vintage, sport and race cars and Mark takes prides in foreseeing collector car trends as he has done in the past with Ferrari, early Porsche cars, vintage BMWs and Volvo 1800’s. Each and every car in the HRM inventory is carefully selected to represent Mark’s philosophy that cars don’t necessarily need to be expensive to be collectable and a wide variety of vehicles and price points are important to help you find that matching set of unique style, design and performance attributes in your next vehicle, whether it be for driving or collecting.
