This Abandoned 1967 Porsche 911s Was Found In a Barn by a Lucky Finder
Can you believe that someone found this 1967 Porsche 911s found in a barn?
Everybody knows that Porsche 911 is a classic car filled with spirit. It is one of the most iconic cars in the world, and you can see that in the numbers.
It had a 20% increase in HP over the standard 911, which can only mean everyone loves this cars.
With vented disc brakes, Koni shock absorbers, and other tweaks, make this care more sought after than its predecessor.
But the most important aspect of them all is how rare this car is, with just 1,800 cars ever built in the first year of production.
You get the point right? Because this is a very classy and rare automobile, finding one hidden in a barn could be a great deal for you.
So, when someone mentioned to Nick Zabrecky of LBI Limited that he had a 1967 911s parked in his barn, you could imagine Zabrecky’s excitement.
For someone who doesn’t know anything about cars this will look like a dusty old car, but for Zabrecky it was a true find.
The car it was in a pretty bad shape when he got the chance to check it out, but it was still one of the most iconic Porsche cars.
He noticed that the car had a small dent in its rear, the usual rust you’d expect from sitting in a barn for however long it was there. It was in a badly need of a new coat of paint, to say at least.
The car was purchased by its current owner in 1972, and got to enjoy the car for 16 years.
In 1998 was parked in a barn where it stayed for almost 30 years, completely immobile. Then recently it was discovered by a lucky finder and wheeled out from its nest.
Every single one of its bumps tells a different story. For example, that sizeable indentation in the bootlid, was the result of a rear-end collision with a Pontiac Firebird.
After negotiating a deal, Zabrecky was able to buy the car from his friend with the hopes of restoring it.
We think that he would need to do some serious work in order to get that car moving again, but we like to think that its new owner will preserve at least some of the car’s originality.
This story reminds me of the one of the cars found on that French farm, remember that?
What are your thoughts regarding this car? Do you think they can restore it back to its old self?
