George, Ryan and I have the specifications for about 20 of these cars which all show German delivery, If you do have a COA or something for this one showing Swiss delivery would like to see it.

Guy,
I have received a message from Ryan.
Due to obvious privacy issues (the car is not mine), I will tread lightly, but I will see with the owner what info, general to the model, which he knows very well, and specific to his car I can extract.
I have known his car for almost 20 years now and it has an amazing history. Chassis number is close to Ryan's car's.

I am curious about the intermittent windshield wiper button I see on the dash. I think that is the wiper switch to the right of the tach. Since mine is missing, and I don't know what is correct, the one in Ryan's car looks different than what is offered on Pelican. Maybe its just the angle of the photo.

Hi George,

I am wondering if you friend's Carrera has a AMAG # decal in the front trunk. If so that would mean it was imported into CH, not sold by a German dealer correct?

PS maybe I can get a look at this one in person this summer (pretty please)

Sweet! I'm fine with "no cameras allowed" just to see them all.

I see, with Targa, the number would be 123. Am I correct?

Yeah, for years I thought there were 123 '76 coupes, but in a long thread about these cars in the Market Place forum, it became apparent to me that the first chassis number is 011, not 001. So the range is 011-123 for the coupes.

Paintwork Completed on #9050

The paintwork has finally been completed on 1976 Carrera MFI 2.7 #9050. The chassis will be returning this week to German Master Tech so that final assembly can begin. The paint came out fantastic. Glasurit 55-Line paint was used with a silver base followed by a clear coat. Bob finished wet sanding with 600, 1000, 1500, and finally 2500 grit and the Carrera really shines.

Dick and Bob did a fantastic job towards achieving our high bar for the level of paintwork and attention to detail required to reproduce some of the known factory defects. I look forward to working with them again. Future posts will cover some of the extra pains taken to reproduce some of the factory finishes.



Silver base coat has been sprayed on the exterior body panels.



Masking and taping was required numerous times to paint various areas prior to painting the exterior.



Second stage of the paint with clear coat sprayed.




Bob wipes down the car after the first day spent wet sanding.



Underneath the whale tail got a bit more paint than was necessary, but looks great.



Along with the original whaletail we also fitted a ducktail and plain engine lid so when bored we can change rear engine lids.



Sprayed several extra spare mirrors I had on hand just in case we need replacements later due to rock chips.

Looks fantastic Ryan.

No doubt you must be super excited to see this. Good idea for the extra lid and Ducktail, as well as the mirrors.

Oz, I believe you are thinking about the Glasurit 90 line. The 55 is a basecoat and requires a clear.

you could be right wasn't line 55 a replacement for the original paint application process when the cars were painted at the factory?

Brakes!

We received back the original front A-type calipers and rear M-type calipers from #9050 after being restored by Eric Shea at PMB Performance. PMB's full restoration service included disassembling the calipers to bare core; re-plating the calipers and all fasteners in their original finishes; and finally completely reconditioned the assembly including piston servicing along with new ATE seals and dust covers.

Does anyone know what the cast and stamped numbers indicate on ATE brake calipers? Either the "396" and "G-49" stampings may indicate a date code, but I haven't found any references that decode any of the ATE numbers.

Jeff Gamroth of Rothsport Racing has been rebuilding the original 911/83 engine for '76 Carrera 2.7 chassis 911 660 9050. The case arrived back from being machined at Ollie's Engineering a little over a month ago and since then Jeff has made steady progress.

In some of the photos you can see in some places that the external surface of the magnesium has some pitting. After years of use followed by long term storage along the California coast the magnesium pitted in a few areas exposed to sea area where the bare metal wasn't protected by any leaking oil or sludge. Prior to the rebuild Jeff carefully had the case tested for cracks and structural integrity, fortunately everything was fine. While walking through The Collier Collection earlier this month I noted similar pitting on engines found in some of their significant Porsches. For me originality and authenticity to the history of the car trumps perfect presentation so no repairs or replacements will be done. Wabi-sabi.

The engine should be completed shortly and I really look forward to firing it up on the engine dyno at Rothsport. Once the engine is done completing the gearbox rebuild is next on Jeff's agenda.

It's Alive!

Jeff Gamroth and the gang at Rothsport Racing have finished rebuilding the engine and it not only runs like the snarling beast a 911/83 really is, but also looks like serious business. After a year of separation both the engine and type 915 5-speed gearbox will finally be reunited with the chassis this weekend.



This was a top level concours engine rebuild which meant the entire production was turned up to 11. This required extreme attention to detail by Rothsport and every single part on the entire engine was refurbished, replated, or, if absolutely necessary, replaced. To give an idea how serious this process was everything was removed, anything out of alignment was straightened, all the studs were replated, and even the hot air flapper was disassembled so the little Phillips screws could be replated! The engine is absolutely a piece of mechanical jewelry.

That said a few details still are on the punch list to get perfectly original. This includes adjusting the fan strap to the alternative placement used in 1976, applying the correct decals, replacing the heater hoses with the correct dull gray-brown finish, etc. Enjoy the photos and sound of the engine on the dyno! It doesn't get better than this.





The original coil indicated by the April 1976 date stamp.





Overlooking the engine being warmed up for a dyno run from the control booth.





Scott tweaking the fuel adjustment on the MFI pump prior to the final dyno run.



...and the moment we've all been waiting for. Even with glass between the dyno room and control room the engine wails. See video of dyno run.

Looks fantastic Ryan. What is the alternative fan strap position for the '76 Carrera? Thanks.
