From its debut in 1963, the illustrious Porsche 911 has undergone continuous improvement and development to become not only one of the longest running sports car lines of all time, but also the flagship for the Porsche brand. Little did designer Ferry Porsche know that his design would go on to grace the automotive world for generations to come – well into the 21st century. The early 911 models, such as the 1964 Porsche 911, can be fairly easy to distinguish from the rest of the pack. Offering 4.5-inch steel wheels and the name “Porsche” in script rather than all caps on the rear engine lid, an educated buyer can quickly point out an early model. These 1964 911’s were also known for their short wheelbase, which had torsion bar covers immediately behind the rear arches. Chrome windshield wipers and triple choke solex carburetors also stuck around until early 1966. Perhaps one of the most little known facts about the 911 is regarding its name. The first Porsche 911 was actually named the 901; that was until Peugeot announced it had copyrighted all 3-digit car names with a zero in the middle. The 901 was quickly changed to 911.


1964 Porsche 911 Seller’s Guide

When looking to buy a 1964 Porsche 911, buyers will have a few important questions to ask you as a seller. First, after the buyers have verified the car’s authenticity, they will turn to rust. Because of the early Porsche 911’s unit-body, rust can be very expensive to fix. One of the best Seller’s Tips that the team at can offer is to be up front about any rust issues and to allow your potential buyers to thoroughly inspect the car. They may ask for the car to be placed on a lift or they may ask for a third-party inspection; this is normal and should be allowed. Some of the most important areas to check are the jack points and tension bar tubes, the seams and edges of doors, trunk and hood, and of course, the floorboards. Checking these areas in advance will help you answer questions as they arise. For other Seller’s Tips like these for your 1964 911, the team at Alex Manos invite you to contact them at your leisure. They are always on the lookout for classics of all makes, models and conditions and are happy to offer you top dollar for your classic, should it fit into their collection.
