The library

A small library of books added as accessories.

The two small binders are receipts from each owner





Invoices of work done on the car at Zuffenhausen in 1974, when the vent wings were installed which had to be authorized by Peter Piech, Ferry Porsche's son-in-law and Chief Engineer.


Original MSO and Manufacturer's invoice


Original purchase order, changed from and L to an E

They're working on it

The engine, it's getting close.

The big question is still, in your opinion, would the new buyer prefer to break in the engine or would they prefer it's already broken in?

The break in, according to the engine builder, is 800 miles at various city and freeway speeds, change the oil, done.

I was thinking about taking it to Mt. Rushmore and back for the break-in, if I can find a co-driver. There is interstate and intrastate highways for speed variations. State roads go through small towns, I would get the whole speed/rpm range in one trip. I have not asked if 3,000 rpm's is a minimum during break-in.

Regardless of a fun drive, I would sure like to sell it to someone who wants to break it in. All the systems will be certified before it leaves the shop, not just engine and tranny.

She's a siren of the sea.

Ken, I would break it in as the whole idea is to discover shortcoming (if any) and take care of them. Not sure if I would be brave enough to go on a trip (outside of AAA flatbed range anyway) but that's up to you. I've had brand new tensioners fail, anything can happen. Bring it to the shop, have them take care of any issues and new oil, then the new buyer can drive it in confidence.. Just my take on it, and I would say the head studs should be re-torqued and the valves clearance checked too.

I agree with what GaryR said - but I would avoid anything other than very short stints on the interstate - it is inherently steady-state and steady RPM, relatively speaking. 2 lane back roads where you can intentionally load and unload, speed up and speed down would be best.

The car should be thoroughly 'sussed out' so that no unforeseen problems (within reason of course) affect a new buyer. My $.02.

After all the work you’ll hate yourself for not having driven it at least a bit.

And by chance you discover you want to keep it anyway.

If not you’ll never know.

Agreed. If something were to break, it would be better for me to break it and if nothing breaks, the buyer gets a reliable machine. Check, new oil, valve clearances, head bolts.

Great advice, thanks I can go hundreds of miles in one drection on 2-lane roads with light traffic all around Denver.

I know I want it, but sadly, there is no way I can keep it. I'll go with the consensus; break it in, fix any defects immediately or find none.

It's on the front line

New rods; original crank, original cams; checked for specs. I thought he said ARP rods but I cannot find any reference of ARP rods, lots of references about ARP bolts, no rods. I'll get a list of all the manufacturers and third parties on this project.

Storz let me put a for sale sign on the car in the shop, and a hand-out sheet of specs at the main counter; fishing for local who would keep the re-certified '69 plates. That is probably not normal, but they did not say no. I told them if anyone asked, they have no idea what's going on, take a hand-out and leave us alone about it. No problem. Actually, now I don't care how long it takes, it's out of my garage; although it would be better to break it in during the fall vs winter.

Beautiful jewelry. A shame they go inside the motor.

At least I can get the pics before they all disappear. Bob will call me at the end of each stage. It's getting a new flywheel too.

Me too, brother. I wonder what it's worth?

It's not a 100 point car but it might be in the 90's. Every single replacement part has been OEM, NOS, or certified supplier, all replating to OEM specs, engine and trannny rebuilt by 40-year Porsche specialists. Matching Kardex and CoA to the T. Is it possible to get the checklist used for the point system or is that a highly guarded secret formula? It could also be in the 50's for all I know.

Hi Ken

Those fog lights (your post #842) are a helluva lot better looking than the rectangular off-shore manufactured fugly ones I have.
Would you please post the info/source on these - or maybe I shouldn't be so lazy & track back in your posts to find the answer.

I, as do others, feel it is a bit of a shame you are selling it. It sure does look good & you have a huge sweat equity in the car.

I think Hagerty rates vehicles such as yours around the mid 60's - mind you that is in 'canuck bucks'. Best of luck to you Ken.

Cheers
JB

I forgot what brand mine are, Hella? The yellow fog lights are not correct, I just prefer them in the fog and they are not illegal. They should be white if correct.



I happen to have seen mine on the classifieds of this forum 2 years ago. They came from England.
