I purchased my Australian Delivered 1973 911E 2.4 Targa with matching Engine and Chassis Nos. via recommendation from Ian Hamilton of Autohaus Hamilton Pty.Ltd. 27 years ago.i believe that I'm the 4 owner and have orginal service books and owners manual with full stamped service history from new upto when i purchased this car in May 1984.
My car is 1/8 R.H.D. 911E Targa 5 speed imported and sold in Australia in 1973.in total there were only 91 "F series" cars sold that year not including 6 2.7RS Carerra road versions plus 2 racing versions.
My car was orginally purchased from Porsche Cars Distributors(Aust-NZ)Pty. Ltd. and was delivered new to Mr.Ian Mcnee of Mt.Waverley Victoria on 18/05/73.
Since my ownership,this car has been fully Restored from ground up, repainted in Standox 2k enamel (clearover base). All repairs where lead loaded/file finished prior to priming and painting.

The Bosch mechanical fuel injection pump and throttle bodies were upgraded to 2.7 RS Carrera specifications and were rebuilt, recalibrated and bench flow tested by Pacific Fuel Injection And Eurometrics in California prior to being reshipped back to Australia.

The car was handed back to me on completion on 10 November 1995.The car has travelled less than 6000klms since restoration was completed.
