The Porsche 911 models that were manufactured from 1964 to 1968 are generally referred to as the early models. They can be spotted by their shorter wheelbase and the torsion bars that are prominent next to the wheel well. Additional distinctions include glass lenses on the headlights, exterior door handles that open via an exposed push-button, and the absence of side marker reflectors. There are a few other ways to distinguish an early model such as the 1966 Porsche 911, but if you’re looking to sell yours, you probably already know many of these differences. You’ve probably seen the chrome instrument panel with green lettering a hundred times, or have used the ceiling mounted rearview mirror and pleated door pockets; all defining features of the Porsche 911 during its early days. Buyers will appreciate these little nuances, and as a seller, you should point them out. No matter what your reason for selling or the condition of your 1966 911, there are buyers out there looking for your specific make and model.


1966 Porsche 911 Seller’s Guide

After the potential buyer has authenticated your Porsche as an original and has done an Internet search to find out everything they can about the 1966 Porsche 911, their next questions will likely be about rust and chain tensioners. Why these two items? They are the biggest issues that buyers must confront when purchasing and later owning a 911 from the early years. Rust is fairly easy to understand, as none of these cars were galvanized. The chain tensioners, on the other hand, are known to have problems and many owners have chosen to replace them with Carrera tensioners over the years. If you have updated them on your car, providing documentation of who performed the work and when it was performed will be extremely useful, and should give the buyers a sense of ease on this issue. These are just two of the Seller’s Tips offered to you by California classic car dealership, They would also be delighted to speak with you regarding your own 1966 911, as they are always on the lookout for new cars to add into their collection.
