1969 911T Barn find build

Hello all!

I'm new here. After building up a 1966 Volvo 122 and a 1967 VW Beetle Deluxe, I've found a barn find 1969 Porsche 911T in Conda Green. It's been sitting outside since the early 2000s and hasn't been on the road since 1996. I'm starting this thread to document progress as I go. The plan is to keep it as original as possible and do a simple Outlaw-style build.



Found it sitting out in a yard like this with the tarp melted into the ground. On the hunt for rust.



Apparently, the original owner drilled these holes in the side for a CB radio. The first hole was at a bad angle so he redrilled. Painful to see. So painful.



The car is surprisingly straight. Only the rear bumpers and license plate area have a dent. That is removable so I'll be straightening that. Apparently, the current owner dropped something on the decklid a few years ago, hence the dig there.




The conda green paint is in really good shape. I rub it a bit with my finger and most of the oxidation comes off. There are a few spots on the car where you can see the primer coming through. I think I'll leave it original paint where I can. Outlaw style! You can see the little raccoon prints all over it if you look closely.




The interior is gone. The windshield was resting on the car but didn't have any rubber. Mice have ruined all the interior. I'll save what I can. Going to need to look more into the air con unit.




Not bad! I wonder how many mice will be in that air cleaner....




Not too much rust. Only looks like the front suspension pan so far. That's due to the hood missing for 20+ years of rain




I love the original rims. Here's to hoping I can save them in this state.

Pulling the car out of it's resting spot. Borrowed these cookie cutter rollers from another porsche fan. The community seems just as nice as the VW crowd!



Really surprised at how straight this body is. Should clean up nicely after some color sanding/cleaning.



Goodbye old car cover



The front drivers side floor pan is a bit soft. So far it looks like that might need to be replaced along with the front suspension pan. Not too bad!




Ready to roll




It looks like a Coolaire system from what I can tell. Anyone know the value on these today? I could just save it with the car for now.




Yum a bit of healthy moss




Wire wheeled the steelies and threw on some rollers for now after returning the cookie cutters.

Doesn't look too bad. Nice color. Congrats. I think you are going to learn it is a '70/71 2.2 car, not a '69. (color, CD box, zenith's, etc)

Nice looking project. How did you come across it? How did she go so long sitting outside and not picked up by a flipper?

I admire your enthusiasm, I wish I had the same.
There is a lot of work and money in this project but I'm looking forward to the completed project.

I love the color.

Hmm I see 09/69 on the inner door tag. This should mean my car was built late 1969 right? The car is titled as a 1970. Iíve read this was sometimes due to the car being made late in the year and not titled in the USA before New Years. @Daves911L Any idea where I can find the number of Conda Green coupes made in both 1969 and 1970?

The owner was a farmer with my father-in-law. He had offers for it before I came along but wanted to sell it to someone who wouldnít flip it but rather spruce it up and drive. So thatís the plan 😀

Rogus: Congrats, I'll be watching your progress closely. I bought one owner 1969 T coupe 10 yrs ago and just getting started:

It's in for sheet metal and paint this winter. Here's what I found for rust, some not apparent until disassembled:

Due to a leaking rear window seal, a hole in the right floor you could put a basketball thru., that drained to a big hole in the right rocker. The front pan had already been replaced, but a cobby job. After I got it apart, I found:

Needed both rockers, needed an inside rocker on one side. Battery boxes were very good, but a hole below one you couldn't see till the fenders were off. We're dropping the front suspension and will redo the front pan. That's it. Should be back home in the next month or two. Good luck....I'll be following your progress.

At the risk of being roasted alive by others here more knowledgeable than myself, 09/69 would be a 1970 model year. August would be when Porsche, and really all of the European manufacturers, would be when the new production year would come online. Plus, the door handles don't look like '69's.
