Included in the restoration process, the vehicle will be stripped to bare metal, placed on a rotisserie, metal finished, leaded, all body parts fitted to the car and chrome, prepared for primer, sealer, paint, base, clear, color sanded and buffed to a fabulous finish.

For the Porsche enthusiast, this is a great opportunity to have a very collectible Porsche done to your own specifications.
1969 brought the first substantive changes to the Porsche 911 lineup which now consisted of three models, the 911T, 911E and 911S all of which were available in coupe and Targa body styles. The E and S were mechanically fuel injected. For 1969, Porsche stretched the wheelbase and flared the wheel arches allowing wider tires to be fitted. Unlike most performance cars of the era, horsepower kept climbing through the use of fuel injection and a series of 200 cc displacement increases. The E had a bit more horsepower and more luxury features. The 911E was designed to be the more comfortable, more drivable model of 911 – fitting between the tamer 911T (Touring) and the high-performance type 911S (Super). The 911 E's designation derives from the German word for injection: einspritzung. The mechanical fuel injection "MFI" system used on the 911E (and 911S) was jointly-developed by Bosch and Porsche. It is similar to the injection system used in the Carrera 6 of 1966. In addition to more precise control of the fuel-air mixture and equality of distribution among the cylinders (compared to carburetors), the MFI contributed toward meeting the nascent emissions control regulations of the time. The 1969 types 911E and 911S also featured a new high-voltage capacitor ignition system that addressed the spark plug fouling problems experienced in earlier 911’s. Another signature feature of the 911E is the self-adjusting hydro pneumatic front suspension struts. Developed by Boge, the struts combined the functions of springs, shock absorbers, and antiroll bars – while also automatically adjusting the height of the front of the car to compensate for weight in the trunk. These struts were standard equipment on 911E models from 1969 through 1971. Intended as the luxury model, the 911E came standard (in most markets) with the "comfort" package of features: including ventilated brake discs with aluminum calipers, velour carpeting, a leather-covered steering wheel, heavy bumper rub strips and rubber guard inserts, chrome rocker-panel trim, and gold-colored script on the rear Deck. In 1969 they only built 858 Targas.
