This second-owner Porsche 911 restoration project had only 29,000 original miles on it when it arrived at Pete’s Custom Coachbuilding. Still, the 1969 Porsche 911 S required a full restoration. The technicians at PCC performed extensive metal work. Among other repairs, both the lock posts and rockers had to be replaced on the Porsche.
Mechanical restoration work on the Porsche 911 S included rebuilding the motor, transmission, and suspension.
The PCC team believes strongly in preservation when possible and this 911 restoration project is a great example of this philosophy in action. With any project, the team will carefully evaluate what parts can be re-utilized and what parts and components require replacement. Oftentimes, original pieces can be refurbished and restored for the vehicle project. The craftsmen at PCC were able to salvage the original interior from the 1969 Porsche. The seats were gone over carefully and repaired as needed before being re-stuffed and re-installed. Both the owner and restoration team alike were delighted to be able to salvage these interior pieces that near fifty-years-old. A new head liner and new carpet were installed at the shop to match and compliment the original components.
This 1969 Porsche 911 S was restored over the course of a year and a half.
