    89 hotrod above went for $235,750 plus buyers fees to BaT. Fairly healthy sale I would say.

    Jon builds incredible cars.
    I'm sure the buyer thinks it's worth every penny.
    Beautiful car.

    My car is up for sale again after some fun driving as well as a $12K bill at the local shop for resealing the engine (down to the cylinders) and re-powder coating the heat exchangers and the Leistritz exhaust. After raising the standard of the car a bit farther, I'm wanting $135K. If I can't get some interest here, it's off to BAT. I was in Portland recently and dropped in to 911R for a visit. I'm going with them! Great shop. Interested parties please contact me here or at robert3279@gmail.com.

    Three things about this car I will tell you up front:

    First, the engine is better than an RS engine, but looks period. It is an aluminum-cased 2.7 twin-plug 10.5:1 compression with Wossner pistons. It has an RSR flywheel and an aluminum pressure plate. The case has boat-tailed mains, the oil bypass mod, a ported SC oil pump, and a knife-edged crank. It has re-nickeled bores by Millenium Technology and new S cams from Web Cam. The rotating assembly was balanced prior to returning to the engine builder. The MFI pump was gone through by MFI Werks (Mark Jung). Everything that held oil was sent to Pacific Oil Cooler for cleaning and pressure testing. The heads were inspected and brought up to spec. All engine work was by Ollie's. Recently, a new Valeo alternator was installed. In the RS spirit, a Bischoff muffler is fitted. Twin MSD boxes run the ignition. The engine now has 6K miles on it. The 915 box has been rebuilt by Simple Auto.

    Second, the interior is mostly an authentic Lightweight interior, done with parts from a Lightweight restoration. I know this, since it was my real Lightweight that got restored and had all these surplus interior parts left over. The door panels, the front and rear floormats, the rear seat fabric all came from a third-series I restored. I put in the clock-delete plate, and the radio-delete plate in the dash. A clue of its former life is the antenna in the fender. The seats are repros. The car has a period shift knob, not one of these recent ones that are obviously not correct. I recently had the tach sent out for a mod to make it work with the twin MSD boxes.

    Thirdly, the suspension is better that any RS suspension. It has the ball-jointed trailling arms - no rubber bushing to replace. It has coilovers all around. They are "stock" Elephant Racing coilovers that I put on after using "street" setup until mu fillings got loose, then I went to the "stock" coilovers. The rear shock towers have reinforcing plates welded to them, and the front has a strut brace, all this for the coilovers. All other bushings are stock rubber, but recent. After I had the coilovers put on, I had the car corner balanced and ride height-adjusted.

    Someone before me took a '72T body and turned it into this RS replica. The paint is holding up very well, one slight flare welding flaw is visible. Recently, I had the rear bumpers repainted and refitted, after applying clear wrap on the lower part of the rear bumpers, you know, where dirt an rock chips always are. Way better after the wrap. The hood and the front bumper has some chips from "being driven". The wheels are not perfectly color matched and the two pictures shown are on the "more chipped up" rims, the others are better. There are minor oil leaks on both sides of the engine in the head/cam housing area.

    Driving this has always been fun. Around town, people love it. In third and fourth gear canyon running, it just kills it! I am a long time ESR member and follow Bring a Trailer daily. From what I have seen on BAT and ESR, $90K for this car should look like a bargain to someone. Come to Colorado to drive it.

    PS - A year ago, I had the car shipped to Las Vegas to I could do a SoCal driving trip. I went to Ollie's. They rolled out the read carpet for me and said "nobody" ever brings their car to them after all the engine work.

    Please enlighten us all because I think it's nice a member has "hung out his laundry" for us before it goes to the unwashed masses. Ticks all the boxes for me.

    Sorry… just that I’ve know Doug and this car a very long time. Just sad to see that he is selling it is all.

    Great guy and a great car.

    You are 100% correct. No need to apologize. I hate to see old heirlooms go away too. It's hard but sometimes necessary. Sometime a "New Chapter" will start!
