1978 911 RSR Hotord -Martini-esque.

1978 911 RSR HotRod. This car has been primarily a racecar since approx. 2002 (Logbook supplied) with prior owner, enjoyed approx. 3-4 vents a yr., sometimes used for Canyon enjoyment in these earlier years. The paint is very presentable with a few blemishes shown in the photos. It is in a high level of upkeep and we have helped take care of it at my shop( GAS Motorsport -a 911 aircooled specialty shop for 30 years, for the past 14 years) Since approx 2006 the car has had 46 hrs put on it.. There is what I believe a Bureau of Auto motive repair decal in drivers door noting a 3.2 engine swap compliance so perhaps it was a theft recovery prior to 2002.

The car Comes with a Calif Salvaged Title.

The car has all steel 930 Flairs butt welded on and recently undercoated , Fiberglass doors, hood, RSR style Bumpers, Ducktail, Carbon Roof, RSR hood prop , all sound deadening removed from the floor and sound deadening beneath carpet for light weight focus. All windows are Lexan and a new glass windshield could be exchanged -fitted if desired. .
Car weighs approx 2070 lbs.

Drivetrane- Engine is likely not the original (as it came transplanted in another car), a 3.0 CIS Big port motor, but within the last 1500 miles we adjusted the valves and Tqed the heads(checking no broken studs) , Dynod it (175 HP to the wheels-matching what Porsche said it was rated at the flywheel stock) , and recently completed a leakdown w all cylinders at 3-4%., likely it has been rebuilt at some point as a 40 years old engine not likely to produce such numbers. It runs strong, starts cold and hot, and is mated to an early 7:31 ring and pinion gearbox which we partially disassembled- inspected before transplanting and it functions very well. The correct manual cable 74 speedo was fitted w a new cable also and miles are not accurate for this car, which doesnt matter really since this is not an original car but a racecar or street hotrod w most everything redone.
It has Headers and a Bursch muffler, plus a 2-1exhaust (muffler removing pipe) for pure track fun when desired..
It will not pass smog in Calif. Lacking a Catalytic Conv. And air pump . Stock exhaust w Cat could be provided if desired.

Systems- A Carrera (circa 86 style) fender cooler has been added in the nose w RSR style frt ducting, custom grill in nose, and the oil tank has been modified w extra baffling and capacity(3 qts) addition we do as std to all our racecars.
AN AIM EVO 4 Data system is fitted w Brake and Throttle sensor fitted for driver training, as well as speed and RPM w shift light indication.

A Safety Devices cage was bolted into the car from a PO and we added missing important sections to the cage in 4130 Tubing to make the car safe and strong given all the lightweight work completed.

Controls: Car runs a factory 911 short shifter w all bushings replaced or inspected , has a Nice Momo wheel w Quick release hub w working 911 horns, Pano rear view mirror, and a Window net comes w car as do roof custom made nets, it is fitted w a Master kill switch. A nice deadpedal is fitted.

An RS America carpet set has is added, along w a carbon dash topper, Recaro ST style seats are fitted and the passenger is likely an aftermarket copy, but looks nice. All gauges work correctly, and an additional warning light has been added for Alt/ Fan belt. A custom fresh air cover is added, and the car is without wipers nor fresh air ducting, removed for weight. These we can provide if desired in a box. Transport Lexan door windows also come with the car for trailering.

The 17x 9.5 and 11.5 3 pc. wheels are custom made, purchased through TRE by a PO using Fuchs centers and are shod w Kuhmo 315 and 275 tires, offering amazing cornering ability. For a softer ride others tires are suggested ..

New items- Rear decklid grill and shock, Bumper to body seal rear, Tail light seals, Oil and filter, Gear oil, Brakes Bled, Door seals and threshold strips, B pillar leather trim, Nice Radio and fresh air control Blockoff, newer reflector, Ruf-Hella lic plate lights, recent corner balance and alignment.
