This early 911 has spent all its life in California. Its previous owner had the car fully restored and gave it a 911R inspired look. This car was originally delivered in the Ivory white color from the factory in 1966.

  

The engine has been totally rebuilt, the heads received new valves and the 40mm Weber carburetors were reconditioned using factory Weber parts. A sports exhaust with dual muffler tips was fitted and the original airfilterbox has been replaced with big K&N air filters. This early 911 is ready to be enjoyed again for another 40 years.

The interior received a factory single hoop roll bar, a new headliner and lightweight carpets, a rare MOMO “Jackie Stewart” steering wheel and the original gauges were rebuilt.
The seats are GTS “Le Mans” models that have been custom upholstered with period correct “hounds tooth” fabric, the door panels are like in a 911R. These modifications suit the period race car theme very well and they are very comfortable. All the window rubber is new and the rear quarter windows have been replaced with Plexiglass 911R vented side windows fitted into the original pop out window frames.

The racing theme was carried on throughout the whole car. The suspension received sway a way 22 and 30 mm torsion bars. 19 MM adjustable sway bars were added to the front and rear. The springplates and Koni shock absorbers are adjustable. All of the suspension pieces were powder coated. The brakes are all new with orange Pagid pads, suitable for track use. The car was aligned/corner balanced and the ride height set with just a bit of negative camber. 72 mm wheel studs were fitted to hold the original 6″ X 15″ Fuchs wheels. They have been fully detailed and are fitted with brand new Yokohama S Drive 205/55/15 tires.

 

 

This early 911 2.0L is a blast to drive, set up to be driven hard and enjoyed to the fullest. The early Porsche 911s with their quick revving Weber fed flat6 engines are amazingly nimble and fast on the road and track and they deliver that glorious sound that only the old Porsches have, a real feast for the eyes and ears!
