This top class Porsche 911E was built on the 1st December 1972, delivered new in RHD format by Melbourne Hamiltons in Australia, finished in Viper Green with five speed gearbox, comfort pack, S instruments and leather steering wheel. This gorgeous example spent its life in Australia before coming into the UK in 2015 having been sold by a Company in North Sydney to one of our regular customers in Lancashire. Still in its original colour, this show standard car is further enhanced having had a new Australian delivered engine bored out to 2.7 back in its earlier years.
The Porsche comes with a comprehensive history detailing a program of major work in the late 1990's and early 2000's and invoices from its time in Australia total over $65,000. The 911 was a classic daily driver in the 2000's and maintained by Autohaus Hamilton (mechanical) in New South Wales and O&S Sports Car Restoration Ltd (bodywork) in Cromer, NSW. During the early 2000's the car was subject of a replacement flywheel, clutch kit, wheel bearings, front and rear shock absorbers, sway bar drop links, rebuilt alternator, new transmission mounts, ball joints, new brake discs and pads, rebuilt calipers and new timing chain tensioners, chain housing gasket and top cam cover gaskets. Also, during the early 2000's $10000 AUS Dollars of work to the bodywork with rust cut out and replaced with new metal/new panels and in 2007 over $1890 spent on anodising and re-furbishing the alloy wheels.
In 2011 the 911 had over $3000 spent on brake hoses, new air-conditioning belt and re-gas, new seat belt pillars and two new tie rod assemblies and was freshly serviced and prepared before coming to the UK in 2015. Since coming to the UK the Porsche has covered around 500 miles and has spent most of its time being detailed and kept looking its very best as part of a wonderful collection of cars. In 2019 the Porsche was treated to £2500 of work that included a full service, fitting new cam covers, re-assembling and refurbishing the heater blow box and replacing the front suspension levers. Initially on arrival, the Porsche was also stripped down and fully re-painted, and not taken to bare metal as there were no corrosion issues or major blemishes present. The paintwork was only to achieve a top class finish almost 15 years on since its work in Australia.
SCW 556L has arrived with us in pristine condition, the bodywork and Viper Green paint are first class, the chrome work exceptional and the interior is outstanding and incredibly sharp. The driving experience is equally impressive, it handles perfectly, the engine is fantastic with superb oil pressure, its free revving and lots of fun. The car feels quick, and the five-speed gearbox is a delight. With its lovely exhaust note, ice cold air-conditioning, this car really does offer a sensational driving experience and is a true collector's piece that for much of the 1990's and 2000's was used as an everyday classic before being taken up to the next level. This is a beautiful machine and it will not disappoint.
