At first, I was a little hesitant to feature this 911. Like many other similar builds the price here is very high and probably won’t garner it too much interest, but there are a lot of little details of the build that I like and overall the finished product looks fantastic. I mean, they painted it Tangerine so how could I resist? As backdated 911s go this one didn’t have to travel far back in time, but the differences in appearance are nonetheless tremendous. Originally a 1974 911 the builders needed only return to one year earlier for the inspiration for their design. Of course, 1973 is the common year chosen as the source material for most backdates since it is either the look of the Carrera RS or the RSR that typically serves as the desired outcome. While the body of this 911 is from 1974 the engine is not. In place of the constricted 2.7 liter units standard in ’74 is a 3.2 liter flat-six mated to the standard 915 5-speed transmission. That 3.2 liter should provide much better reliability and power and is a common choice we see for many upgrades of this type. Much of the rest that is of interest lies in the cosmetic details ranging from the widened rear fenders, which are filled completely by 11 inch wheels, to the minimalist interior fitted with tartan covered bucket seats. It appears to be a nicely put together package and should provide a healthy level of performance, if not quite RSR levels of ferocity.
