    Will be interesting to see what it goes for. A buddy of mine (Pat Lott) drove it in the Daytona 24 in '84. I remember sipping coffee with Pat during that night to stay awake and warm.

    RSR Value Gap

    It will be interesting to see what the value gap is between a period-built GTO-spec "RSR" with legitimate history relative to a factory 460/560 '74/'75 RSR. Any guesses? There are some really nice period "built" cars out there that were top competitors' rides that fall into this category. I would also like to know some more detail on the suspension, motor components, wheels, etc. Is anyone familiar with this car?

    Lee, I was thinking exactly the same thing about value. There were so many built-up "specials" back then and no one really paid much attention to what was the real deal or not. I owned a real RSR but mostly drove a built up 935, JLP-02, a 935 built up special by John Paul Racing. When I bought the RSR, it didn't matter to me whether it was a real one or not. It becomes a bit hazy about what is or was really "real". Wayne Baker took a 935, made it into what was called a 934 when he won the GTO Championship in '83. Then, he made it back into a 935 for the '84 season. So, in reality, he won the GTO championship in a modified 935, not a 934. Funny how things get termed a certain way back then when it didn't matter and now that values have soared, it does matter. Quite a few people were making their version of race cars back then, both RSRs and 935s. Bob Aiken's 935s along with John Paul's versions to name a few. I'm sure there were others, but who knows for sure. Very few people knew or cared what was factory built in those days.
