    I think this car was someone's daily driver back in the day, but I don't think the owner had a Porsche or VW repair shop anywhere that was convenient. The repairs make me think that the owner worked on the car themselves and used parts that were available back before the internet. Perhaps they were pulled off a 911 in a junkyard and were early 911 car parts but not the correct year. Metal gaskets cut from old highway signs, intake manifolds utilizing JB Weld to block off passages that were wrong due to using the incorrect year's part are a couple of examples.

    The car reminds me of when I would work on my own cars in the late 70s and early 80s when I did not have the money to buy new parts or just needed to do a quick fix to get the car back on the road when Monday rolled around. "What can I do to keep this thing running?"

    I can't wait to hear the engine fire again!

    Definitely agree. With the early oil breather cover and solex air cleaner I have been assuming that a 65-66 911 must have been in a junkyard nearby. It would be amazing to trace the car back through ownership to learn more. Before New Mexico the car was near Durango Colorado. This would have been around the late 80's to early 90's. That's as much as I know (outside of knowing the original owner's name)

    I notice the distributor is a marelli unit.

    As I know, the marelli is only for 2,0 T and 2,2 T not a 2,0 S

    J-R, you are right that it currently has a marelli unit. I looked at the parts catalog and it looks like the bosch would have been the standard equipment for a 2.0L S. We will have to correct this in the future. Good call
