1964 Porsche 901 / 911 Coupe
Engine #901/01 - 900277
We are thrilled to present for sale this extremely rare, first-year-of-production, 1964 Porsche 901/911. One of the original 232 cars built by Porsche during the first three months of 911 production, between October and December 1964.
1964-built Porsche 901/911s are known to uniquely feature many identifying pre-mass production parts differences when compared to 1965 or ‘66 model-year cars. The 232 Registry Group have, over recent years, collectively researched and produced a detailed 1964 Parts Study and continue to share this information amongst this special group of circa 50 surviving cars and their owners.
Chassis #300-161 was supplied new in Germany via Schultz in Düsseldorf. Finished in Light Ivory with Black vinyl interior it was delivered new to Dr. Hans Reimer on 22nd December 1964.
Throughout the 1960s and early 1970s the car passed between five further owners, all documented on the original Kraftfahrzeugbrief on file, and was last registered in Germany, STA-E 990 from1971 to 2007.
In 2007 the car was sold by its long-term owners directly to UK Porsche collector, Tom Pead. Recognizing the significance of the car, Pead then carried out an extensive, two-year, ground-up restoration and, meticulously photographing it in detail whilst dismantled, set about to correctly restore or preserve its original 1964 build details, whilst also preparing the car for competitive use in historic FIA events.
In late 2011 the car was sold to Maxted-Page, who successfully ran the car in 2012 Spa Classic and Le Mans Classic races, before then selling it, in December 2012, to its current owner.
Subsequently the car has been very competitive in the 2013 Tour Auto, ‘Sixties Endurance Series and Spa Six Hour Historic race. Again in 2014, at Le Mans Classic and Spa Classic races and lastly at the prestigious John Aldington Trophy at the 73rd Goodwood Members Meeting, where it finished 5th Overall.
Since 2012 the car has been professionally maintained and run by Swiss Historic Porsche specialist, Marc de Siebenthal and today, #300-161 remains fitted with its original numbered engine case and gearbox.
Chassis #300-161 is offered for sale, complete with UK road registration and MoT, plus F.I.A. HTP paperwork, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and a fully documented history and restoration file.
An opportunity for the serious Porsche collector to acquire a fully-restored, genuine and extremely rare, first-year-of-production example, eligible for use in some of the most prestigious and exciting historic events around the world.
