Modified 1976 Porsche 911 PrivateCars - Denver - 12 views
This 1976 Porsche 911 has covered about 750 miles since completion of a build that was designed to deliver modern power with period aesthetics. The prior owner added Getty Design fiberglass front/rear bumpers, front fenders, hood, and ducktail, as well as steel 930 rear quarter panels. The updated shell was then treated to a bare metal repaint in white with black graphics. The 3.6-liter flat-six comes from a 964 and is paired with an LSD-equipped 915 5-speed transmission rebuilt by Tru6 of Watertown, Massachusetts. Suspension modifications include Bilstein shocks, Sway-A-Way rear spring plates, and Tarett Engineering sway bars and drop links. The wheels were refurbished by Marc Zurlinden and 930 brakes are fitted all around. The interior features GTS Classics seats, a roll bar, reproduction race harnesses, WEVO shifter, new headliner, and RSR carpets. This modified 911 is sold with a 1:18 scale replica from the Car Model Workshop in the Netherlands, and a clean Colorado title in the seller’s name.
This is a sunroof-delete car, and exterior updates include a new windshield, new light lenses, and yellow H4 headlights. The period aesthetic is continued with black Porsche graphics, along with Hella and Cibie fogs controlled by the dash-mounted fog light knob. Included in the sale are an unused set of black vinyl Carrera/RSR exterior decals and nine sqft of custom Carrera RSR logo floor tiles.
Preparation for the bare metal, glass-out repaint is shown in a series of gallery photos. The body shell was sourced from Florida and modified with Getty Design fiberglass front/rear bumpers, front fenders, hood, and ducktail. Steel 930 Turbo rear quarters were added, and new body seals and weather stripping were used throughout.
The extended video captures an engine start, the exhaust note, multiple drive-by runs, and a cabin tour. The car has 15×10″ Minilites fitted at the rear and 15×8″ Fuchs mounted up front. All are shod with Michelin TB tires and were refurbished by Marc Zurlinden.
The cabin features a new headliner, perlon RSR carpet kit, and WEVO shifter. The dash top, binnacle, radio-delete fascia, knee pads, and pillars have all been covered in leather as shown in gallery images. A new pedal set and Rennin passenger-side perforated floorboard have been added. Neither A/C or heater fitted, and the 94k indicated miles are not believed accurate.
The GTS Classics seats have perforated basket weave centers and offer plenty of lateral support. Reproduction Repa 4-point harnesses and a roll bar have been added, and factory safety belts are also in place. The rear seats have been deleted, and the e-brake is currently disconnected.
The 3.6 liter flat-six was sourced from a 964, and a widemouth Carrera oil cooler from Elephant Racing has been installed. The car reportedly leaves a few drops of oil after sitting for a long period of time.
The Porsche 915 transmission is equipped with a limited-slip differential and was rebuilt by Tru6 of Watertown, Massachusetts at a cost of $7,400. A receipt for this work and a series of build photos are shown in the gallery below.
Underside updates include Porsche 930 brakes all around, Bilstein shocks, an M&K GT3-style exhaust, and custom 1.75″ headers. Sway-A-Way adjustable rear spring plates and Tarett Engineering 22mm front/rear sway bars and drop links have also been added. There is light surface corrosion is limited to the pans and a few bolts/brackets.
