    FS: 1971 Porsche 911E R

    1971 Porsche 911E (R)

    This car started out as a 1971 911E. It has been updated to the lighter "R" style car. The 911R was only produced in 1967 and 1968. I tried to replicate the original rare race car the best I could. But made it in my opinion slightly better.

    The chassis was completely sanded down to bare metal, every square inch of the rubber factory undercoating was removed and the car was sealed in an epoxy primer. The chassis is 100% rust free. It was put on a chassis jig to ensure that the car was straight. The color chosen was Continental Orange, It was a factory special order color in 1965.
    In order to be 911R accurate I used EB Racings Fiberglass parts. Over $10,000 in new panels. All painstakingly made to fit perfectly. This is one very light 911. Fiberglass doors, fenders, hood, decklid, bumpers...
    911R style hinges on the doors and decklid. Leather door straps for the door windows, just like the original 911R's. A 1972 911 oil console was used and oil tank to put the oil tank in the right rear fender. Just behind the passenger door. New rear quarter panels ensure a rust free body.
    911R lights on the front and rear. 911R plastic door handles. 911R quarter windows.

    911R style fuel tank 100L
    Through hood filler
    New gel battery
    New main front to rear wiring harness
    New engine harness
    New headlight and taillight harness
    New engine wiring harness
    New blinker switch
    New Porsche Horns etc....

    So much of the car is new, I'm sure I'm missing quite a few items. There are a couple things that I need to do to the car after wringing out some bugs. The transmission will occasionally pop out of 4th gear. I will have the motor trans removed and that fixed. Also the 911R rear quarter windows were originally glued in. The guy that did mine didn't do a good job. So they need to be reinstalled with better sealant. Suspension will squeak but I'm told that, that is the result of harder new bushings. I also have new rear trailing arms with Stomski mounts. Ill install those once the engine and trans are out. No heat or A/C but retains the original blower. Odometer works on Tuesdays only. Clock clicks but doesn't clock.
    The car drives like a new 1971 911. The handling is superb, brakes amazing and accelerates like nothing else.

    You are welcome to inspect the car. I'm open for trades. Ask questions. Looking for an airplane of similar value C-180 or C-185. $145,000
