Prince Albert Blue: ’71 Porsche 911T Coupe
We guess that any original 911 that isn’t a rust bucket is worth a look. This one has sat for some time but the seller states it is running and driving now. The matching number engine smokes and they claim that might actually improve with frequent driving. Not sure about that but who knows. The interior is original and in pretty decent shape. There is some rust but it is said to be confined to the bottom of the fenders. It also needs paint. We like this 911 because it is in a nice color called Albert Blue. We don’t know who Albert was and why he earned the honor. Perhaps he was a Prince? In today’s market, early 911s, particularly Coupes are going for huge money. Maybe you can get by without taking this one completely apart. If you had to you would be upside down really quick. In a perfect world, you strip the body and if the PPI reveals the rust is minimal, finish it in Albert Blue, polish the bright work, install a new carpet kit, fluff up the seats, get the A/C going and attend to the engine smoke. Then you’ll have a really pretty Porsche 911T driver that will keep climbing in value. Click here for the eBay auction.
