    Hiding in plain site; Oldest 911 in USA? Historian help please.

    Hello All,

    Iím new to your forum and just love it. I am looking for some historian help on what I believe may be the earliest 1964 901/911 in the US.

    I have had the car for some 30 years and when I bought it, turbo steel flares and IROC front and rear bumpers with a glass ducktail were installed. Also the engine and trans was replaced with a 1974 2.7l CIS. It came with a full roll cage and some unique suspension upgrades. No doubt this car was raced in the 60ís. I just love Porschesí and driving 911ís, but I never thought much about the detailed history and frankly with all the different upgrades and modification, I figured my car would always be an outlaw, my outlaw, and that was good enoughÖ.until now.

    After 15 years in storage, I got the bug to go through everything, front to back and spend some time in the shop. A lot older and little wiser then when I first purchased, I began to notice unique features I believed were only on the 1964 and race pedigree 1964. Wipers park on right side, no indents on engine bay for stickers and 64 door handles. Also, the front Koni struts were double adjustable and steering arms appear to be shortened. From what I read, the SCCA allowed both of these modifications in the mid 60ís for C-Production and B-Sedan entries.

    The build number near the smugglers box and the driverís door match and are 300005. According to Porsche production sheet, 300005 was the 6th car produced on 21 September 1964.

    My questions are, ďIs this a significant car of interest? Does anyone know of any race history ( driver, entries etc)? Are there any other markings identifiers that I could be looking for?Ē

    The only other information I have is that at one time this car was registered in Arizona.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Jay,

    I think everyone in the world will be interested and the level of that interest will be extremely, extremely high... like helicopters buzzing your house high. Enjoy the ride you've got coming up!

    Just -- wow!

    PS... regards your 2nd question, pull the knee pad off. The serial number should be stamped under the radio cut-out and should match the other two.
