This 1970 Porsche 911T Coupe has been refinished in Bahama Yellow over a custom black/grey interior with tartan cloth inserts. It features a twin-plug 3.0-liter 911SC engine with ported heads, Mahle pistons, Dougherty cams, and MSD ignition as well as a ZF limited-slip differential, Turbo tie rods, stainless steel braided fuel lines, Carrera alloy swing arms, a stainless-steel exhaust, and much more. A no-expense-spared custom build, this 911T is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Washington.

This 911T is said to have been refinished in the classic Porsche color of Bahama Yellow about 1 year ago as part of its complete bare-metal restoration. Details include black Porsche logo side stripes, a polished driver’s side mirror, chrome trim, pop-out rear quarter windows, and 15” Fuchs alloy wheels. The seller notes the rear wheels were widened to 7R specification during a recent restoration by Harvey Wiedman and the car rides on new Pirelli P6000 tires. Additional images are provided in the gallery.

The custom-restored interior presents hardback bucket seats in black vinyl with grey tartan cloth inserts, grey square weave carpeting, a dished & extended steering wheel with a Carrera outer ring, and an Ebony hardwood gear shifter. Additionally, modern sound deadening materials were installed along with restored instrumentation, an analog chrono clock, a WEVO Precision shift joint, a Billet clamp, custom door opening mechanisms, a 5-point harness with Schroth belts & factory 3-point seatbelts, a factory RS rollbar, and a welded “RSR” footrest. All gauges and accessories are reported to be working properly.

Power comes from a 3.0-liter 911SC engine built to 1974 911 RSR specifications including a boat-tailed 1978 RoW case, twin-plugged & ported heads by Ollies Engineering, Aasco titanium retainers, Porsche GT3 main bearings, Mahle pistons & cylinders (10.5:1),  Dougherty cams, PMO carburetors, braided stainless steel fuel lines, a billet JB Racing distributor, MSD ignition boxes, a serpentine belt with crank trigger & pulley, fiberglass rain hats, and a fiberglass engine shroud. Additionally, the fan & housing were restored and ceramic coated by specialist Mark Motshagen and a stainless steel exhaust has been fitted including a custom variable diameter V-banned header with an O2 sensor and a Hoover-crafted muffler. The rear wheels are driven through an upgraded Type-915 5-speed manual transmission with ZF limited slip differential and shortened 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gears. Further mechanical modifications include Carrera alloy wing arms, adjustable trailing arms, an alloy front cross-member, Turbo tie rods, wide-A front calipers, oversized sway bars, hollow torsion bars, a gusseted torsion tube with Elephant Racing rubber bushings, Boge front struts with Bilstein HD front & custom-valved rears, and a 28-row brass front cooler. The seller adds that a recent service included a valve adjustment and an oil & filter change. A detailed build sheet is provided in the gallery, and the seller confirms there are no outstanding maintenance items at this time.

This sale will include a clean title, remaining alloy decklid grille items, and operation instructions for the dashboard-mounted chronograph.

The seller would like you to know: “This long-hood has gone through an amazing restoration process with tastefully added upgrades using quality parts.  This beauty is ready to be enjoyed for the next 50 years!  Let it stretch its legs often and take good care of her.”

    @sbsurfer The ground-up restoration was completed in 2016 and the odometer was set to zero following restoration of all gauges by N. Hollywood. At that point, a different 2.7L motor was in the car. At 13,270 miles (2022), the new 3.0L motor was installed. The odometer currently shows aprox. 17,819, so the new motor has aprox. 4,500 miles. The refresh about a year ago included new paint, windshield, seals, headliner, dash, seats, carpet, Fuchs refinish and tires, not mentioning other misc. parts. The new motor has had its heads re-torqued, and a recent valve adjustment and oil/filter change - its 5th O&F.

  • sbsurfer (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    @Zuffenhausen Maybe I missed it but when was the build completed? Is the 17,891 miles what is currently on the motor after the rebuild? Thanks...if so, good to see it's been properly used.

    I've seen this car at various RGruppe events over the past year. The owner is OCD - everything on this car was done to the nines. It's a gorgeous build and it looks and sounds amazing, as you'd expect from a long time RGruppe member. I've seen many builds but aside from a Singer and $500k GT build, I've seen few as nice as this.

    Wish it were in my garage. GLWA.

  • Zuffenhausen (seller) 4 monthsago

    @eurocol all work, minus paint was performed by the owner.

  • Zuffenhausen (seller) 4 monthsago

    nice build, who did all the non mechanical work? Do you have receipts?

  • sbsurfer (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    @Zuffenhausen do you happen to have pics of the paint/body process…of the car down to bare metal to see the condition of the panels prior to paint?

  • sbsurfer (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    What an awesome 911! So many cool details, extremely clean build.

    @pcarmarket, can you post build sheet? Thank you

  • Bg57gt4 (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    Excellent build! Did I miss the build sheet in the gallery? Maybe the chronograph will be transplanted into my Kirkham Cobra….if you know the MiG story there…. Please let me know on the build sheet. Thank you and best of luck with the auction!

  • bharston (registered bidder) 4 months, 1 weekago

    I had often thought that a clock from an ME-109 fighter or similar would look very cool in one of these cars. No idea if it would fit though. The clock in this car looks pretty cool as well.

  • dsdepew (registered bidder) 4 months, 1 weekago

    Zuff, yes, I’m familiar with these early aviation “wind ups”! We have an english Breitling in our ‘69 912 Polo hotrod. Doesn’t’glow’ anymore….need to find me some RADIUM!!!

  • Zuffenhausen (seller) 4 months, 1 weekago

    @dsdepew Your kind words are much appreciated!
    ;) The chronograph clock - this is one of the many unique details of the car and it always makes me smile when I sit behind the wheel and watch and hear the second hand sweep across the face of this cool gadget. Quick story - the clock came out of a Russian MiG fighter jet (really!) and it was purchased from a gentleman in Ukraine. Due to some no-fly zone issues related to a small skirmish going on there, it took two-months by train, bus, horse carriage, and who knows what else to get to me. The clock is analogue so you have to wind it, but it always works. I think you know what I mean. It's basically three clocks in one: flight duration, normal clock (12 or 24 hour), and stopwatch. Then there is the glow in the dark - most watches use phosphorous to make the hands glow, but they don't last very long and weaken over time - even Rolexs. In this clock, the Soviet Union , due to different use restrictions, used a radioactive material called Radium-226 to make the hands & numbers glow. Radium-226 has a life span of thousands of years - so even after 50-years, these buggers still glow in the dark! And yes, it still emits radiation so you will need to limit your seat time. (Just kidding - about the seat time.) Read more here: https://www.autoweek.com/car-life/classic-cars/a32310682/mig-21-analog-clock/

  • dsdepew (registered bidder) 4 months, 1 weekago

    In my opinion, this has to be one of THE nicest hotrod build P-cars has offered. As a ‘check writer’ for builds like this, I know what it takes/costs. The attention to detail has been exceptionally well executed. Absolutely love the clock. If I wasn’t currently in the middle of 2 builds I would be all over this. Well done seller. I’ll certainly be watching………

  • nameisbauer 4 months, 1 weekago

    Just commenting to commend the seller on a beautiful build. Attention to detail is amazing. I would like to think I would do it the same way. Hot 3.0 in a Longhood has to be the ultimate 911. Everything else is just fluff.

  • Zuffenhausen (seller) 4 months, 1 weekago

    @johnvlamb Thanks for the complement, John! I performed all the restoration work, every last bit, excluding the paint. Machine work for the motor was done by Ollie's in AZ while the gearbox was massaged by our local wizard, John Walker.

  • johnvlamb (registered bidder) 4 months, 1 weekago

    What a beauty! Can you share more info regarding who did the restoration work and engine build? Thanks!
