Description

Proudly offered by RB Collection is this lovely 1965 Porsche 911 coupe presented in its original shade of Irish Green (code 6406) over black leatherette. This important and highly desirable 911 is a very early production, numbers-matching example, completed on June 3, 1965, per the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. This wonderful car has been treated to a recent freshening of the restoration, and presents in excellent condition inside and out. The Irish Green paintwork is in fine order throughout, befitting a car that is equally at home on the road or in a show. The body is crisp and straight, displaying nice, consistent gaps and proper detailing with correct slim bumpers, alloy deco strips, and good quality restored chrome trim. Riding on original steel wheels with chrome center caps and blackwall Vredestien Sprint Classic tires, the stance is squat, purposeful, and true to factory standards.
The interior is recently restored and finished in black basketweave pattern leatherette on the seats, correct salt and pepper lightweight carpets, and black door panels. A distinction of the early 911 is the natural finish wood trim on the dash, which presents in excellent condition on this car. This example also retains its correct early-style green-faced instruments, a distinct four-spoke sports steering wheel, and a period accessory walnut AMCO shift knob for the 5-speed “dogleg” gearbox. Detailing is excellent throughout the remainder of the cabin.
The 2.0-liter flat six is the original, numbers-matching unit per the supplied Certificate of Authenticity. It is well-detailed and tidy, featuring the correct air box, Weber triple choke 40ID carburetors, and factory-style clamps and hardware. The engine benefits from recent service performed in-house, and runs beautifully, sending power through the correct 5-speed 901 gearbox. It is befitting a car that is usable on the road, while also finely detailed for regional shows and club events. The undercarriage is very well-presented, thanks to a recent refurbishment by our team of restoration specialists. From the front trunk to the rear engine compartment, many details were researched to ensure accurate presentation.
This lovely and rare first-year 911 is sure to please the enthusiast seeking a finely restored and road-ready 2.0-liter model to enjoy in rallies, tours and casual show events. It represents a rare opportunity to acquire one of the most desirable short-wheelbase 911s, from the first year of production of the world’s greatest sports car.
