1973 Porsche 911T (just arrived)
We have on consignment a numbers matching 1973 Porsche 911T in Slate Grey over red interior. The car has been restored by Jim Liberty of Jim Liberty Motorsports in Costa Mesa, a local 356 legend. This example has been brought back to life with a few tasteful modifications.
Disclaimer: We don’t often sell other peoples complete restorations because we cannot guarantee the quality but in the case of Jim Liberty we’ve seen his Concourse winning restorations and know he achieves the same level of quality we strive for in our own restorations.
Jim rescued the car from its almost 12 year residence in a Los Angeles shop where the car was waiting to be restored. Originally delivered to Italy in 1973, the car has spent the rest of its life in California, luckily the mild climate and kind owner spared it from any rust or damage. The car is matching numbers with no rust or accidents. The car required no body work and all panels were straight and dry. Not much more is known of the history of the car other than it has had at least 2 owners and the engine was all original.
The optional equipment for the car per the COA includes the following; US equipment, forged alloy wheels, stabilizer bars (f/r), manual antenna left w/front, loudspeaker & noise suppression, comfort package, front (rare steel S) spoiler , tinted glass all around and pirelli tires.
Jim built the car for himself as a personal vehicle with a few tasteful modifications with no expense spared and to the same level of quality he restores his 356’s. For the restoration everything was replaced, powder coated, painted, plated etc. Jim wanted everything on the car working perfectly so he could drive it! The car underwent a tasteful color change from Sepia Brown with Brown leatherette resprayed to Slate Grey with red (a welcomed change!). The engine was rebuilt locally by a trusted specialist as well as total rebuild on the transmission. The suspension was powder coated black and fitted with new bushings, bearings, rotors, shocks/struts etc…The MFI pump was also sent out to be rebuilt by a specialist and is working great and was fine tuned here in our shop. All seals, gaskets etc. were replaced and all brightwork was polished. Multiple suspension and brake parts were ceramic coated. The date stamped flat sixes, believed to be original to the car were sent out to be refurbished and paint matched to the car along with a steel spare, all with new tires. Rare Cibie fog lights were installed on the front hood as well as horn grill mounted driving lights. The interior shows just as well, with newly upholstered (non original) Recaro seats, a new headliner, new carpet etc. The original gauges were rebuilt by a local specialist and look great. The rare Arbath exhaust was sourced from specialists in Italy and gives the car a very distinct aggressive thrum.
Overall the car is beautiful. Runs and drives great like it should. Jim recently did a 600 mile shake down run up to Monterrey with zero issues. It needs nothing but to be driven and enjoyed. It was built by an enthusiast and should be enjoyed by one as well. Jim Liberty is about the details and even if the car strays tastefully from original, his modifications are meant to improve the overall experience of ownership and we think he accomplished that. The car includes the original jack, non original tool kit and original Porsche air pump. Original 1973 Recaro sport seats are available for an additional cost. The car has been set up for club touring events with Garmin navigation and rally stop watches (which can be removed prior to delivery).
*the stickers on the roof of the car are soft vinyl and can be removed easily.
Asking $139,500 OBO.
