Modified 1976 Porsche 911 PrivateCars - Strathpine - 11 views
This 1976 Porsche 911 has been backdated to incorporate 1970s ST and R styling cues and is powered by a 3.2-liter flat-six. The seller acquired the car in 2011 after the build was completed by Rob Joy in Escondido, California and has since added 12k miles. Exterior changes included the addition of fiberglass front fenders, bumpers, and hood, as well as steel RS rear flares. The interior features Sparco Milano Prestige seats, Rennline floorboards, basketweave door panels, and more as detailed below. The suspension was fitted with Bilstein shocks and Weltmeister adjustable sway bars, and the engine is mated to a 5-speed 915 transaxle. This 911 was recently serviced with an oil change and is now being offered with some documentation and clean Colorado title in the seller’s name.
The exterior was modified with 911R-style fiberglass front fenders, acrylic side windows, steel RS rear flares, 911ST-style fiberglass front bumper, a fiberglass engine cover, and a fiberglass hood with a pass-through fuel filler. Lighting is provided by H4 headlamps, hood-mounted reproduction Cibie rally lights, and Hella-style taillights. The seller notes some pits in the windshield. Since completion in 2011, the front hood and bumper have been repainted, though some imperfections in the finish and trim are still present.
The suspension was modified with Bilstein shocks at all four corners, adjustable Weltmeister 19mm up front, 22mm rear sway bars, and a brace in the trunk. The 15″ Fuchs wear Goodrich G-Force Sport tires sized 205/50 up front and 225/50 in back.
The cabin has been modified with the following equipment: Sparco Milano Prestige full leather seats with custom billet hinges Momo Prototipo steering wheel Basketweave door cards with lightweight pulls Rennline floorboards Factory short shift with Wevo coupler Radio delete New headliner Partial lightweight carpet kit Rear seat delete Bolted in half roll cage with expired Simpson 4-point harnesses Hidden battery cutoff and floor mounted fire extinguisher
The seller reports that apart from the clock, all interior equipment functions as it should. The odometer shows 237k chassis miles and is believed to be accurate.
The 3.2 flat-six was sourced from a 1984 Carrera and is modified with an Autothority Performance chip and a dual exit exhaust with working heat exchangers. Other changes include powder coating the valve covers, manifolds, and cooling fan. An oil cooler is mounted in the right front fender, and an amber-colored fiberglass engine surround was installed. The 915 5-speed transmission is from the same 1984 Carrera and was rebuilt around 17k miles ago, and the total mileage on the drivetrain is believed to be around 140k miles. The oil was changed in summer 2017.
The brakes have been upgraded with Brembo 4-piston calipers, vented rotors from a 1984 Carrera, stainless brake hoses, and a Tilton proportioning brake bias valve. The current weight is 2,250 lbs, and additional undercarriage photos are in the gallery.
The results of a recent compression test are shown above, and a video of the car being driven cab be seen below.
