1973 Porsche 911 Highly Developed from the 70's
This beautiful custom Tuthill 911 is based on a 1973 Porsche 911T that was delivered new to Ohio, USA. In its former life the car was kept in great condition with the first owner keeping it for 20 years and maintaining the car, including an engine conversion to a capacity of 2.8 litres (2808cc).
In 2007 it was exported to the UK to have work carried out by Machtech Engineering in order to compete in historic racing. This work included a rebuild of the now 2.8 litre engine, addition of a roll cage, fuel cell, and fire equipment. It only competed in one event at Oulton Park in 2009 before being retired until 2014 when it was returned to road/race configuration. This is an extremely well documented car and comes with invoices dating back to 1973.
At Tuthill the car underwent an £84,000 overhaul both cosmetically and mechanically. Steel ST arches were fitted along with ST bumpers before the cars bodywork was refurbished. Bonnet lamps were placed on the front to improve the classic 911s lighting levels. The interior was kept clutter free with a zero-distraction dash, the addition of tartan seat inserts, and a classic Momo Prototipo steering wheel. All racing items from the previous historic racing specification have been removed and the rear seats were reinstated. The engineers at Tuthill found the flat 6 2.8 litre engine to not be in good shape, so it was rebuilt to 2.7RS specification with 90mm barrels and new pistons taking capacity to 2.7 litres with better torque through Weber carburettors and SSI exhaust manifolds.
This car is the complete package for somebody looking for a genuinely fast, mechanically sound, and unique classic Porsche 911.
