Beautiful! You should make those bumpers. I'd buy one and a matching front for a short hood car!

The car is totally fantastic....except for the tail! It just has to have a more period looking rear treatment Even if it's some kind of hump!

A work of art. When will it be available for delivery to my garage?

The '67 Speedster was made in the South SF Bay Area out of a wrecked '67 Targa by a body shop owner named Stan Towne.

It now seems to live in Southern California. I saw it at Brace's (long considered the premiere body shop in SoCal) 4-5 years back. They said it was fairly rough under the paint, but were doing their best to deal with the bondo.

So far, it's about the best overall conversion I've seen on a 911 -- clean, simple and true to the marque.

Are you running an intercooler with that tail. if so, would that fit under a ducktail. if not what kind of power can you get without having the intercooler. I've really been thinking about putting a 930 motor in a early car, but I would want to run it with a ducktail. Thanks.

Michael, you can fit and intercooler under a ducktail. A fellow rennlister has done just that. It takes some mild mods to the decklid for clearance. Here is a link to some photos and directions:

Great looking car John, I love all the elements! Can't wait to see it with the Strosek top, not many of those around!

John's car would not have the "issues" that apparently the '67 has. John is an artiste in metal, not bondo. Custom fab seems to be his 'spare time' passion. Now if he'd just get going on Bugster again. When finished, that will be one of the coolest looking, and quickest, six cylinder air cooled vehicles on the planet.

Very cool, thanks for the link. I think a turbo motor would be very cool and unique in an early RS look hotrod.

Nice job John. I like the rear bumper the best. Can you post a rear shot of the bumper.
Thanks
