This Porsche 911 left the factory in 1966 painted "Golf Blue", collected in person by its first US owner. It was discovered in America in 2002 by Porsche expert and gentleman driver Robert Barrie, well-known in the UK. Barrie race-prepared the car meticulously. The engine, stamped with the original number was fitted with high compression pistons, standard valves and RSR-profile cams, giving it around 170-175 bhp at that time. The suspension was lowered and stiffened with Bilstein shock absorbers all round. The standard disc brakes were retained and fitted with slightly larger calipers. The interior was stripped out and fitted with a six-point roll-cage, and the original wooden dashboard, dials and door trim were kept. The electrics are standard with the addition of an external cut-off switch. The car sits on 6 x 15 Fuchs wheels and is fitted with a larger than standard fuel tank. Robert Barrie competed in numerous races over several years in the UK and Europe, clocking up many class wins. He won the Guards Trophy Championship for pre-1966 sports cars twice, and also competed in the car at Goodwood.
Supplied with FIA papers, this 911 was comprehensively overhauled before being sold in 2013 to an Austrian enthusiast who hardly used the car. The current owner acquired the car in 2016 and again has only driven it occasionally. Meticulously prepared, this 911 is eligible for numerous historic race events, including the new " 2 Litre Cup " organised by Peter Auto!
