Fully Restored 1973 Porsche 911 awaits its lucky new owner

The guys from Porsche Club Service and Porsche Classic have saved a classic air cooled Porsche from the scrap heap and created a raffle prize in the process. The car, a 1973 US-spec 911 T Coupe was discovered in a “pitiful condition” – missing its windows and lights – but complete with bird’s nest, near Los Angeles before being shipped off home to the Porsche classic workshops in Stuttgart, where it had every single one of its 38 years wound back.

Now, after almost a year of restoration work, the vintage narrow-bodied model is like new again, finished in silver with a black interior and powered by a 2.4L flat six, producing a modest – but glorious, 140 hp. And some lucky member of the Porsche Club of America will get their paws on it early next month, as it’ll be a raffle prize at the 2011 Porsche Parade. Wow.
