    I don’t recall seeing belts fitted to rear of RS by factory either but I guess it could’ve been specified however attitudes to seatbelts was different back then. In the U.K. rear belts were made made mandatory to wear only comparatively recently according to wiki:
    “ Rear seat belts were compulsory equipment from 1986 and became compulsory for them to be worn in 1991.”
    So unlikely top of mind for original purchaser to specify rears here back in 72/3 But maybe regulations and attitudes to such things varied by country where RS sold new?

    Mine had black plastic plugs in rear belt fitting location.

    1364 has been on and off the market since at least 2010 when it was sold/auctioned in Essen. It was once in GP/white/blue and I think Canepa did the resto, no idea why buyers/dealers did not enjoy the car but sold it again. Just for profit? Of course there are small things not entirely period correct but not many restored cars are 100% either.

    Auction Description (UPDATED):

    - Left hand drive – Touring specification
    - £180,000 restoration by Porsche specialists, Gantspeed
    - Matching numbers with original engine and gearbox
    - Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and full history
    - Concours condition
    - Realistically priced to sell today

    This car is a left-hand drive Touring model supplied new to Germany in Light Yellow with black upholstery, as it is today, and has been with our private vendor for the last 6 years. During its life, like most RS’ in their early days, it has travelled around the world ~ including several years in Hong Kong.

    Back in 2007/2008 as Robert Gant was firmly establishing Gantspeed as one of the premier Porsche Specialists in the UK, he took this car to make it his “signature restoration project” and thus left no stone unturned in the 2 years plus restoration of the car which included absolutely everything. This work was all fully documented and photographed with over 500 pictures on file. The total invoices add up to in excess of £180,000 in total spend and the car has covered very few Km since then.

    The car was finished to such a high standard, both mechanically and cosmetically, that it was used by Gantspeed to promote their business for several years and was their car of choice in all their national advertising for many years after the work was completed.

    Our vendor has used it occasionally but most of the time it sits in his bespoke luxury garage amid several other amazing 911s, including the low mileage 996 GT3 RS and 993 RS also offered in this Sale, being correctly stored and used only when the sun shines. Like all his cars though, it has been professionally maintained and annually serviced.

    This original matching numbers car is offered with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and one of the most comprehensive history files we have ever seen.


    Earlier Auction Description:

    - European-delivered, left-hand drive, Touring-spec RS (M472) indicating 77,000km (atoc)
    - Raced and rallied in its early years before being imported into the UK in 2007 and registered TGF 708L in 2008
    - £40,000 recent expenditure with a highly regarded Porsche specialist and now 'on the button', the bodyshell has been subject to reconstruction and hence listed with an appropriate guide price. Shut-lines, panel gaps and geometry are all very good
    - Engine numbers match factory records. Gearbox rebuilt. Full geometry set up. Fresh FIA Technical Passport
    - The history file contains detailed invoices for recent works, the current V5c, FIA papers, a Letter of Authenticity from Porsche GB, invoices for maintenance over the years, previous HTP papers (exp Dec 2019), older MOT Certificates, the current MoT expiring 17 June 2021, a wealth of invoices for the aforementioned recent works, a copy of the HTTP application and other related documents
    - This 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Touring (VIN 9113600312) was built to a home-market, left-hand drive spec in December 1972 (1973 MY), finished in factory Pale Yellow with a black interior and is recorded as having been sold on the 1st of January 1973.

    Documents within the history file suggest that 0312 was raced and rallied, mainly in France, from 1973-75. During 1975, records indicate that the car was updated to 3.0 RSR specification and continued its rallying career until around 1982. There are details of the car competing in 'Rallye Ronde de la Durance’, 'Critérium des Cévennes’ and ’Glace Neige’ with numerous drivers including Lucien Bec. In 1985, the car was sold to a German buyer wearing 3.0 RS bodywork and is believed to have been stored in a heated garage, unused and gathering dust. Further documents and research conducted by previous owners outline most of the car's history from the late 80s to 2015, including FIA HTP papers granted in 2014.

    Our vendor purchased RS 0312 from a respected classic Porsche dealer based in Florida on 29th October 2015 and instantly set about a schedule of works to have this RS set up for drive ability on the road with occasional circuit use. All subsequent work was to be entrusted to a UK-based, highly-regarded Porsche specialist and the history file contains detailed inspection reports and invoices totaling over £40,000 to prepare the car correctly. Current FIA HTP papers have been applied for and granted, although due to the current Covid-19 situation they are currently awaited. The RS is accompanied by evidence of research conducted by previous owners (upon which this description is based), a Letter of Authenticity from Porsche GB, invoices for maintenance over the years, previous HTP papers valid to December 19, older MOT Certificates, the current MOT expiring 17th June 2021, a wealth of invoices for the aforementioned recent works, a copy of the HTTP application and other related documents.

    In summary, this is a very well sorted 2.7 RS Touring that has been raced, rallied, maintained and rebuilt over the years with significant recent investment to ensure the car presents and performs well. Having been a competition car for many years the body-shell has been subject to reconstruction and hence listed with an appropriate guide price. Shut-lines, panel gaps and geometry are all very good, viewings and inspections are welcome. It's being offered by our vendor as he has recently purchased another very interesting 2.7RS and would like the funds to get this new project started. With fresh HTP papers, this is a super example of the legendary 2.7RS and, as well as being a stunning road car, could compete effectively at club level and be welcome at lots of prestigious motorsport events.

    I like how they get around that the car has been "re-bodied"....

    The fraud in this market makes me sick.

    And a huge caution to those chasing bargain prices; you get what you pay for in most cases. Pay the extra $100k for provenance and quality
    The early S’s...

    1967 S Coupe
    1969 S werks
    1973 RS Coupe (an honorary S?)

    My real passion are 356’s

    and the fact that the "Engine numbers match factory records" does not mean it has not been re-stamped to "match" the records - cant tell with no photos

    Dealer Description:

    - One of Seventeen - Right Hand Drive
    - The ex-Dessie McCartney / GIA 7200

    One of 17 UK Right Hand Drive (M471) Porsche Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweights - Manufactured by Porsche in Stuttgart, West Germany in March 1973 and finished in Light Yellow with factory option: (220) Limited-slip differential.

    Supplied new in 1973 by AFN, Isleworth to Anthony Bamford of J.C.Bamford Excavators Ltd and first registered in the UK as JCB 123. In 1974, AFN then supplied the car to its second owner– Dessie McCartney of Ireland, who re-registered it as GIA 7200.
    Purchased for the sole purpose of beating the mighty Ford Motor Company works two-litre BDA Escorts in their heyday, McCartney began to carve out a career in rally driving with GIA 7200.

    The 1975 Galway International Rally was Dessie’s only outright international win in a Porsche but his multiple, second-place finishes are legendary. If there was to be a ‘Mr Porsche’ in Irish rallying, that title would, without doubt, belong to Dessie McCartney, who’s rally career was the envy of many.

    GIA 7200 Rally History:

    1974
    Donegal Rally - 3rd
    Texaco Rally
    Manx Rally - 2nd

    1975
    Galway Rally – 1st
    Circuit of Ireland - 2nd
    Donegal Rally - 2nd
    Lombard RAC – 13th

    By the end of 1975 the dominant Porsches were beginning to struggle and feel the Ford reaction and it was becoming a simple numbers game in terms of BHP. The trusty 2.7 Carrera RS with 210bhp was showing sign of a power struggle and so it was eventually sold and replaced by a 270bhp 3.0 Carrera RS.

    In 1976 GIA 7200 was sold to Richard Jackson and re-registered in the UK as SPY 44. Richard competed in national rally events and entered the 1976 and 1977 Mintex Rally.

    In 1979, the car was sold to Alan Baker, who kept it for ten years, and then sold in 1989 to Richard Allen. In 1993, Richard Jackson was then able to re-purchase SPY 44 and this time he kept it for the next twenty years, until eventually selling it to William Loughran in 2013.

    William Loughran then commissioned Tech 9 Motorsport Ltd to restore the car, carrying out a meticulous two-year restoration. The restoration gave absolute regard to preservation, with hundreds of hours spent on dressing out rally dents and preserving the factory bodyshell and floor-pan. The car also retains its matching-numbers, type 911/83 engine, number: 6630943, which Tech 9 stripped and rebuilt. They also report that it retains date-matching cylinder heads and cam housings, intake system and fuel injection pump, etc., items which very often become replaced in a competition car. All this work is well documented with extensive photographs and invoices in the vehicle history file.

    We are delighted to offer for sale this rare and very historic Carrera 2.7 RS. One of the seventeen RHD M471 Lightweight models, which were originally supplied by Porsche.
