Anybody recognise these seats, I understand they are Recaro's but not sure from what period (70 / 80's?) and were they ever an optional fitment on an IB?

 

Thx

They are definitely Recaros but they look more like Beemer seats, never seen them in a 911 myself. Definitely not IB seats.

Do they look similar to the ones Tim sold?

If I were ever to sell mine I'd do a quick backdate on it and stick it up for £30K!

You're a genius mate - the more I think about your backdate suggestion the more 'real sense' it makes.

 

An RS backdate is considerably less work than the originally planned RSR conversion and something I could even undertake myself followed up by a (local) re-spray possibly in the original colour which would deal with the tired paintwork.

 

This would make good use of the pre-73 parts I have already collected and would only need an investment in some some RS fibreglass bumpers whilst the RSR steel flares & other backdate parts would hit ebay

 

The end result would be a nice shiny 300hp RS 3.6 which as you rightly point out would invariably have more value than the equivalent SC sleeper - trouble is I may not want to sell it at all.

 

Hmmmmm - I need to sleep on this!

 

Thx

I have seen backdates at 50 - 70k from dealers in magazines ,definately a more marketable option

Why not keep it IB but make it super light like Rainer and Limey? All bolt on, easy to reverse and still an excuse for a paint job.

 

Hec y not make a C3 replica as those prices seem to be going strong?

Yeah I was thinking that.. better the devil you know.. And you get to enjoy all your previous mods/investment for longer.

 

Must be cheaper than importing an unknown quantity, and all that a@sing about to get it here...?

 

RS backdate and a SNAZZY new paint job gets my vote.

Agreed - even at half this price the maths would stack up.

If it wasn't for the work associated with the turbo flares, I'd do a 74RS IROC backdate in a heartbeat but if I'm to maximise my return on the significant investment in the engine department, I think ACE & Andy have hit it on the nail by sticking with a 73 RS theme.

It get's my vote as well albeit it's too late for the import as I've already bitten the bullet.

 

So unless something goes horribly wrong I hope to have an 'old school' 72 RSR replica in beautiful condition that includes original 73 RSR parts as well as a hot Jerry Woods 2.7 MFI 7R mag setup heading across the pond in the near future. :rolleyes:

I'm seriously considering purchasing a really nice pre-73 Gruppe 911 from California and that leaves me with a real dilema as I would need to consider the 'un-thinkable' i.e. sell my RHD 83 SC 3.6 which I have driven for nearly ten years and brings a smile/fear to my face every time I boot that 3.6 on the way to work.

Here it comes :)

Before JG kicks me off the site or I'm forced to convert the 72T into a SC, any thoughts on re-instating the 'Carrera' RS decals?

 

Here's what it used to look like:

Martin, if it were me I'd go decals, 'chrome' trim & RSR fuchs.

Will definately remove the black paint from the frames and raid Mrs G's brillo pads for the Fuchs but still a little tempted by this?

Congrat's on your purchase Martin.

 

Your car would look much better with the decal's I reckon, and RSR look Fuchs as well.

 

No. 59 car looks sweet.

I suppose you've seen this?

Gunnar Racing restored that car. Can't link direct to it. Go to completed projects and look for 1973 Porsche RSR. (the pink one)

ACE / Jevvy,

 

Do you guys have an Lambda O2 circuit on your 993 conversions.

 

I'm just having a full service done and it's been pointed out that my car doesn't have the Lambda circuit and maybe it should be reinstated - any thoughts?

 

Thx
