1970 Porsche 911T Coupe

While perusing used car listings there will always be certain cars that immediately grab your attention strictly on appearance alone. It’s a car or style that you weren’t looking for, but nonetheless your attention is held. Such was the case with this car, a 1970 Porsche 911T Coupe in a fantastic shade of Burgundy. Originally released in 1968, the 911T served as the entry-level 911. For the 1970 model year the 911 saw an across the board bump in displacement to a 2.2 liter flat-6 engine, which in the 911T produced 125 hp. While that power was delivered via a 4-speed manual as standard, the 5-speed manual of the 911E and 911S was available as an option on the T, and while the car featured here is short on information, we do know that it comes with the optional 5-speed manual transmission. While the T is not nearly as sought after as its more advanced siblings, especially the S, it still provides the same classic style and performance characteristics that 911 enthusiasts have come to cherish.

1973 Porsche 911 RSR Clone

While they were cars primarily intended for racing, we do occasionally come across road-going 911 RSR clones for sale even though in some regards it can be difficult to determine what exactly gives it the distinction of being a RSR rather than a RS. Those sorts of technical details aside, a car built towards RSR specifications always will be an excellent performance machine combining light weight with excellent power and mating that thrust to a capably handling chassis. Surround that performance with the iconic design of a ’73 Carrera RS and you have a car that looks just as fantastic as it will drive. The car featured here, located in Illinois, began its life as a 1973 Porsche 911T before being converted to its current specifications. The engine is a built 3.2 liter flat-six mated to a 915 transmission. For the rest of the details on body and suspension, see below. I have no doubt that this would be a very lively car to drive!

1973 Porsche RSR clone

This is an actual 1973 non-sunroof 911T converted to an RSR – not a backdated impact bumper 911. the fenders, hood, bumpers, ducktail and doors are fiberglass. the rear turbo quarters/flares and roof are steel. I bought the car already converted to an RSR but the condition was poor so i invested considerable time and money into re-building the whole car. It weighs 2080lbs dry and has an estimated 275hp.

Barn Find: 1971 Porsche 911T

We’ve shown a couple of cars like this one recently: Porsches from the ’70s that are in need of a lot of love so that they can be enjoyed again. The Heap of the Week I featured a couple of weeks ago would have been more suited for a full restoration seeking collector status. That car is remarkably similar to the car featured here and this one should probably be approached with a similar ideal. Here we have a Red 1971 Porsche 911T located in Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC.

You are bidding on a 1971 911T 5-speed coupe w/o sunroof. It was manufactured 10/70. This is a “behind-the-barn” find that shows the results of being left out in the elements for too long. The car is all original and intact with 71,395 miles with matching numbers. Original color was Pastel Blue #2020 but now has a poor repaint to red. This car will require extensive restoration. The lower portions of the front pans have extensive rust. Full replacement of the front pans, right and left battery boxes, gas tank (?) and forward portion of the floor pans is required. The structure and pans to the rear of the mid-point, torsion tubes, shock mounts, etc. are clean and rust-free. Rockers show some minor rust, but seem to be intact. Rocker trim is S type. Door jambs, hinge mountings and surrounds are intact and still serve up that Porsche “ping” when closed. Headlight bowls are intact and are not rusted. All glass is original and present with some slight delamination showing in the front windshield. Some rust is present in the body panels as shown in the photos; the underside trailing edge of the rear deck lid is the worst.

Heap of the Week (Part II): 1971 Porsche 911T

The Heap of the Week has been a fun addition for those of us here at GCFSB. Sometimes it’s nice to take a break from searching for and writing up pristine examples of exciting cars and the Heap provides us just that sort of excursion. This week we have another potential project Porsche to feature. Unlike the high starting cost of last week’s 1962 356 Cabriolet Super, this 1971 Porsche 911T should be able to be had for much less money and could provide for a worthwhile investment of one’s time and energy (and more money). Long-hood Porsches of most any variant have seen a serious uptick in value amongst collectors so a potential restoration such as this one is certainly worth a look.

Car was found in a barn after sitting for 17 years and had been 80’s blacked out, painted red several times and fiberglass front and rear bumpers added (front is still fiberglass). The heads had been removed from the engine and disassembled. I had the heads professionally reworked, valves and guides redone as needed and the motor reassembled to get it running. The carbs were cleaned and new gaskets installed. The engine and transmission were reinstalled, rebuilt the brake calipers, cleaned the gas tank, rebuilt clutch, installed new batteries, replaced brake and fuel lines, sourced and installed used heat exchangers, muffler, rear bumpers, license plate valence, interior and exterior mirrors etc. The car now runs drives and stops. The engine runs rough and would benefit from attention to the original Zenith carburetors and Marelli distributor. The cases were not split, just got the car running to evaluate the next step.

1973 Porsche 911T

With the discontinuation of the four cylinder 912 in 1970, Porsche was in need of an entry level 911. The 911T, introduced in 1967, effectively filled this gap. In 1971, the engine in the T was enlarged, along with the rest of the 911 range, to 2.4 liters, providing 130 horsepower in “T” form. Also new, much to the chagrin of some involved in competition, was a new gearbox with a traditional H pattern in place of the dogleg first gear arrangement in models prior. This 911T for sale in California is said to be an original car, owned by the original owner for 28 years and now has showing just under 66,000 miles on the clock.

Custom 1972 Porsche 911T/E/S/RS/SC/ETC.?

This Porsche falls into a similar category as the last Porsche that made it here, uber clean, somewhat modded, and well documented.

The listing provides good information, (some a bit over the top description),  a little history, and plenty of photos. Because of the modifications, this 911 can’t quite figure out whether it is a E, T, S,  RS, or SC, the VIN shows it started life as a US model E series 911T. An easy identifying feature on this car is the ölklappe, oil filler flap, mounted behind the passenger door on the rear fender. This feature only appeared for this one year after too many Porsche drivers were finding their service attendants filling the oil tank with gasoline.

This car was updated in 1989 with a 3.0 180 horsepower SC engine. Presumably the other mods and restoration work like the repaint occurred at the same time.

The car comes with a set of deep lipped Fuchs 6Jx15 alloy rims and European H4 headlights.  It also has a nice combination or original and custom interior bits.

The seller is a bit shady on the actual mileage, only listing that it has covered 5,300 miles since the modifications. Someone who is good enough to write such an elaborate description, really should know better and should have included the actual chassis mileage in the space eBay provides.

The seller does have a binder full of receipts documenting the car’s service history, which is always a nice bonus.

If one was looking for an original 1972 911T, this is not the car, but if you were looking for a vintage 911 that is partially original with a well cared for history and tasteful restoration and modification, this could be the one.…
