The car was built about 4 years ago, with the idea of building a street car that was very lightweight, unique looking and fun to drive. The car gets quite a bit of attention wherever it goes.It isvery reliable car, Don’thesitate to jump in it and drive it pretty much anywhere. It starts every time, runs like a top, shifts great and does everything properly, itwill put a smile on your face every time you get behind the wheel. There is always RS Clones around, go for something that is different.
The previous owner was diligent with the maintenance, changing the oil often with high quality, high zinc oil and addressing anything that appeared to need attention.
It started as 1976 911S. Couple of reasons the builder selected this year to build his car. First year of the galvanized body, last year with no center vent in the dash, proper bright work and venting rear windows topped the list. These cars were lighter than the later cars as well. The final reasoning was not wanting to mod an earlier car, I saw no reason to start with a pre ’74.
The fenders, bumpers and hood are fiberglass, with the fenders being specially built without light boxes or gas filler hole. The front turn signals are incorporated into the bottom of the headlights and the gas fill is located under the bonnet.
The interior features a Momo steering wheel, parcel shelf and custom built seats that were crafted from vintage Recaro’s. Flat door panels and leather pulls to open the doors complete the interior.
The motor has CIS injection that was tuned by Rothsport. The exhaust is SSI’s and a Sport Muffler. The car sounds amazing, and is not too loud. A Carrera oil cooler was added in the right front corner to keep engine oil temps in check. The underside is dry.
The suspension has been upgraded with stiffer torsion bars and Bilstiens as well as quick change spring plates in the rear.
The car was corner balanced by Rothsport and handles very well.
The wheels are Minilite replicas and are 16” x 7”s with performance BF Goodrich tires.
The car was originally Sienna Metallic and it was repainted the original color but a couple shades lighter.
Longer Wheel Studs have been ordered. And are set to be installed soon.
“I had some great memories, multiple Monty Shelton Rallies and even a road trip from Rennsport in Monterey to Austin. The car has never let me down and is hands done the favorite car I’ve owned to date” (Previous Owner)
