DT: 1976 Porsche 911S Backdate

We are pleased to present this custom backdated 1976 Porsche 911S finished in Guards Red over a black leatherette interior.  Carrying an upgraded 3.0 L flat-six engine sourced from a later model 911 SC, this 1976 example was treated to a custom backdate conversion which included steel F-body panels and a bare metal respray in its factory original color.  With a full engine and suspension rebuild carried out in 2018, this 911 is said to run beautifully with approximately 140k miles showing on the odometer. 

Under the current ownership in 2017, this 911 was custom outfitted with steel F-body panels before undergoing a full bare metal respray in its factory original color of Guards Red.  The paint is said to remain in great shape with some minor stone chips, and the seller indicates all converted body panels to be steel with the exception of the fiberglass front hood.  Detailed images and documentation from the backdate process are provided in the photo gallery.  Other noteworthy features include H4 headlights and OEM Fuchs wheels which are currently dressed in 3-year-old Bridgestone tires.

Inside, this 911 retains its black leatherette interior which has been modified with RS-style door panels, RS carpeting and a rear seat delete.  An upgraded Blaupunkt radio with Bluetooth and USB has been installed, and the cabin is said to remain in great condition with all gauges and accessories working properly excluding the clock.

Under previous ownership in 2002, this 911’s original motor was swapped out in favor of a larger 3.0 L flat-six Porsche engine sourced from a later model 911 SC.  Approximately 204 HP is sent to the rear wheels by way of a 915 5-speed manual transmission with a Wevo shifter and shifter joint.  Both the engine and suspension were fully rebuilt in 2018 by Deman Motorsport with approximately 15k miles driven since.  Noteworthy items performed during this time include:

  • Media Blasting
  • Head Studs Replaced
  • Cleaned Pistons
  • New Carrera Tensioners
  • Rocker Shaft Seals
  • Flywheel Bolts
  • New Gaskets
  • Timing Gears
  • New Clutch
  • All New Hoses
  • New Lines
  • Fluids and Filters
  • Oil Level Sender
  • Pedal Assembly Rebuild
  • Replaced Starter

A new warm up regulator was also installed along with a brass oil cooler, and the seller confirms this 911 to be in fantastic driving condition.

The sale of this 911 will include a set of two keys, owner’s books, some spare parts and a collection service records dating back to 1981.  For any avid air-cooled Porsche enthusiast, this backdated 911 offers a very special opportunity.

    @vvspeedy30 I believe smog equipment was removed prior to my purchase. Exhaust is original.

  • vvspeedy30 (registered bidder) 1 week, 5 daysago

    Is the smog equipment and exhaust system with the upgraded engine original? Because it's a 1976 it's subject to CA smog laws

    @erke1 No, the clearing of the loan will be paid as part of the winning bid.

  • erke1 (registered bidder) 1 week, 5 daysago

    Sorry to belabor this point but still a bit unclear.
    Does the winning bid also have to pay off the remaining lien? So to clear the title it would actually have to be bid + lien?

    @Mercyhealth Hello. From our experience, the seller's answer to your question is correct. The secure way to conduct the transaction is to pay the bank directly to ensure that the payment is being received and the lien will be cleared. A quick conference call with the buyer and seller to the bank will give you clarity on the specific institution's guidelines and necessary forms to ensure that you receive the title.

    Good Luck!

    @Novadia please have Pcarmarket confirm what you believe is the correct series of events in buying a car without a clear title. Thank you. I have not seen this before and I’m sure it’s all good but it is what’s keeping me from bidding.

    @wthode Yes, it is a sunroof car. There is a single battery located in the driver side front of the trunk. The battery is an optima redtop.

  • wthode (registered bidder) 1 week, 5 daysago

    Two questions: 1. Some photos seem to show a sunroof and others don’t. Does it have a sunroof? 2. Does it have the small twin batteries or not, and where is/are the battery(ies)?

    @Cestradajr All electrical works including interior lights and cigarette lighter. Turn signal stalk was replaced with OEM part a few months ago, due to erratic high beam. Light are on a fused relay to protect the wiring. Heat works well with flapper boxes open, front blower motor whines sometimes when it is on, but I never use it because air flow is very strong.

  • Cestradajr (registered bidder) 1 week, 5 daysago

    Do all electrical items work properly (windows, turn signals, lights, wipers, etc)? And does the heat work?

    @gth452 I believe the current lending bank (Navigant Credit Union) holds the title to the car. Once the payoff is complete they FedEx the title to me which I can promptly send to the new owner.

  • gth452 (registered bidder) 1 week, 6 daysago

    Sorry if this posts twice - can you please comment on how you like to address the lien on the car after the auction is finished with the buyer? Not sure what the DMV in NJ requires but will the buyer get a clear NJ title to the car? Thanks

  • Novadia (seller) 1 week, 6 daysago

    @ninpo4me The front hood needs some slight adjustment. It is a TRE fiberglass backdate hood which retains the original latch panel and I have not had a chance to take it to the shop to get dialed in.

  • ninpo4me (registered bidder) 1 week, 6 daysago

    The front hood shut lines seem to be off. Is the front hood shut properly or does it need adjustment?

    @Mattysf Yes, the car currently has the later OEM factory adhesive back lettering. It can be easily removed if you chose to.

  • Mattysf (registered bidder) 1 week, 6 daysago

    Does the car currently retain the Porsche badging on the rear lid? There are some images with and some without. Nice car!

    Hi Novadia. If you check the left door jamb there should be a tag there with the birthdate.
    Thanks

    @jkinne Hey Jkinne, wheels are the stock 15x6 for the 1976. Not sure of the exact offset. Fenders weren’t rolled for fitment and camber I believe is stock. Current tires on the car are Dunlop Direzza DZ102’s. I made a mistake on the bridgestones in the description. They have appx 11k miles on them. I unfortunately do not have any mention in the records to how many miles were on the engine when it was swapped in.

  • Novadia (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @Cestradajr Hey Carlos, I have a cold start walk around video. Need to figure out how to upload it. Will try on Monday.

  • jkinne (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @Novadia: What is/are the offset(s) of the Fuchs wheels? Were the wheel wells rolled to accommodate the 205/55 Dunlop tires? What Bridgestone tires are on the car now and how many miles have been driven on them? Any idea how many miles were on the SC engine when transplanted?
    Thank you for your time.
