1970 911T and intro thread

Good morning troops,

My name is Rick and I'm located in Southern Ontario, Canada. This is 1970 911 that I know nothing about but will be starting the restoration

As delivered to the shop,





It had spent the last 34 years in a barn with serious engine issues. Not sure of the extent but we'll strip it down and figure it out.



And a box load of stuff,




This should be a fun project!



cheers

It's been in a barn for the last 34 years due to an engine problem. I'm not sure if this was the replacement or rebuilt engine or the bad one lol.



cheers

Looks to be in amazingly good condition considering. Will you be keeping the AC?

Good luck with your project.

Well we got the car pretty much stripped and started on the structural welding. ALL of the rust issues in this car were due to mice nesting in the cavities.



Some rust under the left torsion bar mount,



Some surface rust on the floor pans but overall it's real solid,



Another spot was right behind the left front tire,



Removing all the rot and getting ready for the patch,





Luggage compartment had some surface rust as well, but it cleaned up real nice,








More pics coming soon!


cheers

That is very nice indeed.

I used to live in South Ontario. At least I told people I lived in South Canada... It was actually Watertown, NY
