For the 1972 model year, the oil tank was moved further forward to enhance the handling of the 911 and featured a distinctive oil flap on the right hand rear wing where the oil could be topped up. Unfortunately, people would often use this by mistake to fill the car up with fuel, so this feature was dropped for 1973 making these ‘oil klapper’ 911s models very rare today.
For this project, we replaced all the original vinyl with matching leather. The original Recaro seats were finished in leather with cord inserts. The carpet was imported from Germany to ensure it was the original carpet it would have had at production. We also enhanced the seat belt guides in billet aluminium.
The care, dedication and craftsmanship that went into the full restoration of this car was recognised when it won its category at Concours D’Elegance, and we are hugely proud to have played our part. The car then went on to feature on the front cover of Classic Porsche magazine, with a 6 page editorial (issue 62 / 2019).
