Car Of The Day – Classic Car For Sale – 1967 Porsche 911

by Mike –

Here is my pick for the classic car for sale today that I would like to own. Actually I did own one of these at one time, the same model, the same year and the same color. Photos of my former car are at the end.

This Porsche looks to be in good condition. I would want to know more about the history especially why a new passenger door was needed and why an engine out rebuild was required after only 51,750 miles.

I owned a car nearly identical to this Porsche in the early 1980s. Two photos of my former 1967 Porsche 911 are below. The only differences between this car and my former car are the seats, the fog lights, the chrome bars that connected the rubber bumpers extensions which were on my car and not on this car and my car did not have the Porsche logo on the side. Some of these items may have been dealer installed options or after market additions.

Notice the snow on the ground in the photo below. I lived in Colorado when I owned this Porsche 911 and discovered that this car did not have a heater fan. So, when I wanted heat to flow into the car I had to rev up the engine. This made for interesting driving in the Colorado winter trying to keep the windshield from fogging up. I didn’t even try to stay warm while driving in the winter.

The price that I paid was less than 10% of the asking price of this car on eBay. I paid $6,000 for this Porsche 911, drove the car as my daily driver for two years and sold it for $6,000. It would have been a good investment to keep this car.

How would one compare this 1967 model at this price to a 1996 Porsche 911 model, like the one I own which can be bought for much less? Or to this 1981 Porsche 911SC also at a much lower price?

    I prefer this 911 without the Porsche decal on the side. Also, while the price seems high it is what this model is going for. But for a driver the 1981 or the 1996 models would be a better bargain.

    • You could buy both a 1981 911SC and a 1996 911 for the asking price of this one 1967 911.

      However, there were much fewer of the 1967 911s made than the later models, so they are much more rare.

  2. I like those seats – I did not know they were a Porsche option.

    It appears that the engine received a major service perhaps addressing issues that are caused by age deterioration. The price is over the top considering that the door had to be replaced – due to accident? This is not a time capsule such as an all original mint low mile car. This price is far reaching into the 356 price tier. Nice model to have, but not this car at THIS price.

  4. As others, I think that this car is over valued. Hagerty gives $60,000 for a condition 2 car …. I don’t know if this one is a 2 or 2,5 condition car. Recaro seats are gorgeous but history of the car is missing and at this price level it is fundamental.
    Pre-74 Porsche prices are crazy. These cars are nice but their price raise since 5 years is irrational relative to their intrinsic value. The 1996 993 is a nicer toy for me !!!!
