DG Auto Club is proud to offer this original and unrestored 1970 Porsche 911S. The car is finished in an absolutely gorgeous ‘Signal Orange’ (14) exterior paint and its interior is wrapped in its original black leatherette upholstery. The interior has not been modified in any way and remains in great condition given its age.

This air-cooled gem is numbers matching and free of any restoration work or engine rebuilds over the last 50 years.

Exterior

All 911 models built from September 1969 onwards were newly fitted with a larger 2.2-liter flat six-cylinder engine from Porsche, resulting in an increased engine output of 180 hp for the 911S. To address the tendency of the older 2.0-liter models to oversteer, the wheelbase was extended by about 2.5 inches providing better balance and handling.

Stopping power comes from ventilated font and rear disc brakes and the S models were lightened through the use of aluminum for the engine lid and central bumper.

The car’s paint is predominantly original but received some reprays around the late 1990s or early 2000s. Paint meter readings are low and consistent throughout the body.

The rear engine cover shows two small cracks in the paint. A handful of minimal stone chips are present on the vehicle as well. The glass, metalwork and overall rubber are all in very good condition with no significant blemishes.

Interior

The car’s dash and headliner are in good condition and are original to the car. The gauges, stereo, air conditioning and interior lights are all in good working order.

Its original black leatherette interior is in great condition with only minor bolster wear on the driver seat.

Features & Options

Its original 5-speed manual transmission remains intact with no issues to report. The car also retains its original Blaupunkt Frankfurt AM/FM radio.

This 911S also features a factory air conditioning system with built in air vents in its leather dashboard. The A/C system works properly and cools nicely.

The car is fitted with its original steering wheel. All gauges are fully functional.

Wheels are 15″ deep-six Fuchs with Vredestein Sprint Classic tires that are fairly new. The dashboard is unmodified and original showing very minimal wear and nearly no blemishes.

Ownership History

The car was sold new to a gentleman in Hermosa Beach, CA through Vasek Polak Porsche Audi. The original owner took delivery on January 1st 1970. This gentleman drove the car 17,813 miles in the first 18 months of ownership, servicing it regularly at the Porsche dealer he bought the car from. The car’s service booklet documents this period of ownership.

Over the following years, the car spent much of its time in California and eventually made its way to West Virginia where it remained (at least) between 1986 and 1992 based on the registration records we have. The car spent its entire life in the United States until 2014, including a number of years in storage.

In October 2014, the car was purchased by a classic car dealer and was brought to Dubai. It was acquired by an enthusiast and collector in Dubai shortly after and has been enjoyed there ever since.

The car has now returned to North America (as of June 2020) and is available for sale worldwide through Champlain, NY.

Mechanical Condition & Undercarriage

This 911S features an air-cooled 2.2L flat-six engine producing 180 hp while the car weighs only 1,023 kg (2,255 lbs). The engine is original and has not been rebuilt. It runs well with no issues to report. Engine compression test results can be found below. The 911’s original 2.0L engine was upgraded to 2.2L for the 1970 model year.

Power is transferred through a 5-speed manual transmission. The car is also fitted with ventilated disc brakes at all four corners and its Vredestein Sprint Classic tires are in great shape having been manufactured in April 2017.

The vehicle underwent a thorough mechanical inspection and comprehensive service in June 2020; the work order included an oil and filter change, a new oil hose, new heater hoses, new front wiper blades, a windshield washer pump replacement, a brake fluid change and throttle adjustments.

The undercarriage of the car is clean and rust-free which makes sense given its long-term California ownership (see photos below).

Additionally, we also had a pre-purchase inspection completed at an authorized Porsche service center in July 2020, as well as compression tests. The results of these compression tests can be found below:
