DescriptionFor those of you who more recently followed Peter Morgan's YouTube restoration of a classic 911, the story of this 1973 Porsche 2.4S restoration certainly bears a number of parallels - whereas Peter's project appeared online, this two year ground up rebuild was undertaken by a gentleman of similar skill and standing to Peter but critically, featured extensively on the other side of the Atlantic in Porsche Club of America's magazine, 'der Vorganger'.
The man responsible for this project and the staggering detail, fit and finish was Steve MacKellar - obsessed with Porsche since the early 1970's, he acquired this 911 back in 2013 and although highly original and unmolested, having sat idle for over 20 years, it required a great deal of attention.
Although having superb garage facilities including a paint booth at home, some parts of the project, namely transmission, engine and paint were quite correctly outsourced to known Porsche specialists. The time-consuming job of reassembly and in particular at this stage, perfecting panel fit and perserving the flawless paintwork, seemingly endless fitment of new rubber trims, gaskets and seals, plus associated aluminium anodized trims was a huge task. Much of the interior is original and in excellent condition but where needed (like the recovering of the leather sports seats) other vital and correct Porsche parts were incorporated to ensure the overall appearance matched the quality of the complete restoration.
The Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms the restoration has not altered the specification from how it left the factory back in 1973. Notwithstanding the immense financial cost of a top to bottom restoration, there is also significant investment in time to consider, evidently this 'as new' 911 benefits from being available for immediate delivery for its next custodian to enjoy without delay! There is a wonderfully bound photographic history of its restoration which includes narrative from Steve MacKellar, a Porsche COA on file, original books and wallet plus period Porsche brochures and an original second set of keys!
