1969 Porsche 911
1969 Porsche 911E Widebody RSR Tribute. This car was constructed and painted as you see it in the mid 80's. However, it still was built using the same formulae used to build these RS tribute cars today. Nothing has been changed on this car or added to this car for the last 20 plus years. Steel Flares on all four corners, later model higher HP engine, stronger 915 trans, modified front suspension, low stance, racing Webers, roll bar, harnesses, all done the same as they are being built today. The early style whale-tail spoiler was used instead of the ducktail to accommodate the A/C condenser.
Engine is a beefed up 1978 3.0SC engine with the 930 case, rebuilt about 30k ago and sporting a safety wired pair of racing 46IDA Italian Webers that are worth about $4,000 by themselves. Vintage Ansa turbo exhaust gives it a nice sound without being too loud. Trans is the upgraded stronger 915 5spd with a racing shifter and the front suspension is from a 1974 911S that does away with the problematic original Boge suspension. Car sits very low with a mean stance. Wheels are 18x8 and 18x10 HOLLOW Turbo Twists that are worth about $3,500 (check values online). Tires are older and will need to be replaced but hold air and don’t go flat. I would recommend selling off the Turbo Twists and going with something more period correct. The car is prepared with the half roll bar, a 200mph speedometer, vintage Pyrotech racing harnesses and late 70’s 911 sport seats. (I have a complete 1969 Black interior listed in another auction) The car also has a complete vintage (dealer installed) “Koolair” air-conditioning system and the CB radio it has had for the last 40 years. (Handle was “Mighty Mouse”)
The car has been in storage for over 20 years. All that has been done was fresh fluids, cleaned out fuel system and it started right up and idles smoothly and revs effortlessly without any noise, knocks, or ticks. There is a very slight bit of smoke as soon as it starts after it has sat for a week or two but it clears up almost immediately to zero. Car will need Webers cleaned and rebuilt and a tune up to pull all the power out of it as it still is running 20 year old cap, points, rotor, plugs and wires. Tires are older and flat spotted from long term storage. Will need front lower pan as the driver’s side torsion bar mount is weak and some typical floor pan repairs as it still has its original floor pan. Despite looking great in the photos, the paint is over 30 years old. It is presentable and carries with it a vintage patina, however, if you want a show car it will need paint. Car still draws a crowd wherever it is taken and looks impressive in person.
I have the service file from the local performance shop that goes back decades from 40 years of continuous ownership including the documented engine build 30k miles ago. Also has the Weber tuning manual. Car comes with about $2,000 in spares and parts including a 1973 Date Coded “Big Tank” B.F. Goodrich space saver spare that has never been used, an original Porsche tool roll, trim and lots of small new parts and rubber.
1973 RSR Carrera tributes are still popular and bring strong money in today's market. This RSR tribute has all of the key modifications that people are still doing today in one package. Cat can be used as-is with some maintenance and modifications (tires, front lower pan) or blow it apart and make it a showpiece without having to source the expensive key components already incorporated into this car. I have a free and clear Florida title and she is ready for export as well. Temporary inside storage while shipping is arranged is not a problem. This is a true "no reserve"auction with a reasonable starting point and it WILL sell to the highest bidder. Please do not bid unless you are a serious buyer with the cash in hand.Payment will be cash in person or Bank Wire Transfer received within 7 days.
