This 1967 short wheel base classic 911 is all about driving not polishing.
Having ‘enjoyed’ an exciting life, it is the perfect choice for you to enjoy more of the same. It’s a completely different proposition to owning a museum show piece.
Here is a 911 that can take you to historic events or potentially allow you to enter them. You can drive it properly and find out why these cars were legendary.
Perfect it is….for the purpose….
Produced in December 1966 and supplied originally by Porsche Bologna, this Italian spec 911 S spent most of its life living in and around the Milan area.
It came to the UK in 2004, although not before a change of engine to a magnesium case 1968 unit, built up with S pistons and cams and prepared by Robert Sikkens Racing.
The engine runs really strongly, the transmission has closer ratios and with that and the stiffer suspension, this little 911 shifts. Having been previously an FIA racecar, it could easily be converted back into one and of course retains many of the components that make these 911 a delight to drive fast.
The 911 was purchased by Mervyn Selwyn who immediately started work to ready the Porsche for FIA regulated competition. There is a large folder of receipts and invoices for many thousands of pounds from Official Porsche Centres and specialists such as The Bodywerkes, Roger Bray Restorations, Berlyn Services, Raceparts (UK) Ltd. Design911, WrighTune and RSR Engineering. Selwyn and the 911 were regularly seen on track at historic events throughout the UK. Photographs of them competing at Donington in 2012 can be viewed by visiting this page
Granted an FIA Historic Technical Passport by the MSA, the most recent dated August 2007, the 911 was passed to compete in the Competition GT Car category, FIA Class GTS16. This would need to be reissued once current regulations were met. We can do that.
With character in spades, we can’t build them like this, call for details.
