Modified 1976 Porsche 911 PrivateCars - Pleasantville - 15 views
This 1976 Porsche 911 has covered just 500 miles since completion of a build that was designed to deliver modern power with period aesthetics. Starting with a rust-free body, the seller 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 964-sourced 3.6 liter flat-six 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 reportedly running well with no current issues. It is sold with service and build records, as well as a clean New York title in the seller’s name.
Preparation for the bare metal, glass-out repaint is highlighted in a series of photos in the gallery below. The rust-free body shell was sourced from Florida and was 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. Panel fit is good with a slight gap showing between gasket and front bumper on the passenger side.
The seller has driven the car approximately 500 miles since completion of this build. 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 the black Porsche graphics along with Hella and Cibie fogs controlled by the factory dash-mounted fog light knob.
15×10″ Minilites are fitted at the rear and 15×8″ Fuchs are mounted up front. All are shod with Michelin TB tires and were recently refurbished by Marc Zurlinden.
Updated cabin fittings include a new headliner, perlon RSR carpet kit, and WEVO shifter. The dash top, binnacle, radio-delete fascia, knee pads, and pillars have all been fully covered in leather as shown in the photo gallery. Adding to the purposeful look are a new pedal set and Rennline passenger side perforated floorboard, as well as the absence of heat or A/C. The 94k indicated miles are not believed accurate.
The GTS Classics seats have perforated basket weave centers and offer plenty of lateral support. The rear seats have been deleted. Reproduction Repa 4-point harnesses and a roll bar have been added, and factory safety belts also remain installed.
The 3.6 liter flat-six was sourced from a 964 and resides in a very clean engine bay. A widemouth Carrera oil cooler from Elephant Racing is also fitted. The seller notes the engine is running well, with no current mechanical issues.
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 provide in the gallery below.
Suspension updates are evident including the addition of Porsche 930 brakes all around, Bilstein shocks, an M&K GT3-style exhaust, and custom 1.75″ headers. The undercarriage is clean and dry, with no fluid leaks noted. No accident damage or repairs are visible, and light surface corrosion is limited to the pans and a few bolts/brackets.
Sway-A-Way adjustable rear spring plates and Tarett Engineering 22mm front/rear sway bars and drop links have been added.
