My beautiful Porsche 911 backdated Hotrod. This car has undergone a complete transformation
during a two year labor of love renovation. The goal of the car was to create a lightweight car that was capable of
performance but also looked great and was civil. The car was purchased by me from the previous owner out of
Arizona. The car started out life as a yellow 1976 911S. Before my ownership it was painted a pearl white and
converted to a Steel widebody turbo look car with a 3.2L engine swap from a 1988 Carrera. Overall it was in pretty
good shape but I had a plan to make it what it is now.
The Restoration:
Once I received the car it was completely stripped to the bare chassis. All panels, glass, headliner, sound
deadening, rubber seals, etc were removed. I sent the car to a Porsche specialist, Werks 11, where they completely
stripped all the paint down to bare metal and fit and installed the new Rennspeed Fiberglass hood, fenders, front
and back bumpers, and ducktail. The rear steel flares were left on the car. Werks 11 built and fitted a Center fill
gas tank for a sportier look. They also removed the existing sunroof and surrounding roof panel and bonded in a
strong, lightweight, and very beautiful carbon fiber roof panel made by Helion composites.
Once all the bodywork and Fabrication was completed the car was shipped off to paint where the painter laid down a
very nice paint job done in Porsche non-metallic Slate Grey(6801). The car was then reassembled and all seals and
weather stripping was replaced.
The interior was also backdated using an RS carpet kit, door panels. Amazing custom period seats were made by GTS
Classics, the dash Facia was also backdated using the same material from the seats to bring it all together. A new
custom alcantara style headliner was installed and a MOMO prototipo steering wheel was installed. The dashboard and
other pieces were also reupholstered in black german vinyl. A custom OEM replica rear seat delete was built finish
off the rear and conceal the engine ECU and small Bluetooth component Stereo system. Completely stealth with no
speakers visible. Synch to your handheld and stream your itunes, Pandor etc.
To finish it off we lowered the car, installed new Bilstein coilovers from Rebel Racing, and went with Custom 17”
Fikse Mach V’s wrapped in Continental DW’s. An OEM muffler was modified to resemble and RSR style muffler.
Lastly vinyl graphics were installed (completely removable)
Mechanicals:
Brakes: Carrera brakes in great shape. Stops amazing especially with the lightweight body
Suspension: Oem suspension in front, new Bilstein coilovers from rebel racing in Rear
Chassis: apprx 124K miles
Electrica/Lights: All gauges, lights, electrical work. I actually went through the entire wiring harness and
soldered/heat shrunk every wire that wasn’t securely connected. Car starts every time with no hassle.
Engine/Transmission: 3.2 Carrera engine from an 88’. I was told the engine only had apprx 60K miles on it but
cant confirm. It runs very strong. We removed the Engine and transmission to fix synchros in transmission. It’s
the original 915 unit. 2nd and 3rd gear synchros were replaced and the the rest checked out ok. While the engine
was out it was cleaned up and detailed. The spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, motor mounts, and
starter were replaced. Also did a valve adjustment and replaced the valve cover gaskets. Did an oil change using
Brad Penn and refilled the tranny with Swepco. Replaced all the bushings related to the shifter and readjusted
clutch and shift coupler.
Overall:
The car has been driven maybe 500 miles since the restoration was completed. Its in fantastic, like new shape, with
most of the major components fixed or replaced. The car drives great, sounds great, shifts great, and stops great
and has been extremely reliable. The car is at a stage where it can be enjoyed by the new owner for years to come
with no hassle. On top of that, it looks amazing and gets LOTS of attention.
