1975 Porsche 911S 2.7-Liter Engine
This 1971 Porsche 911T project came to us from a local PCA member who was suffering from health issues. It started life as a Silver Metallic 1971 911T purchased in California by the previous owner in June of 2019. His vision was to set about restoring it into a hot-rodded 2.7-liter 911. The gearbox was overhauled by Eisenbuds Inc in Denver, Colorado. Eisenbuds also sent the gauges to North Hollywood Speedometer Repair, and the tachometer was adjusted for a 2.7-liter engine. The numbers matching engine is currently installed in the car but is in need of rebuilding (we can do this for extra if desired). The body and various panels were media blasted by Blast-Tech in Englewood, Colorado. After that, the body was roughed, primered, and prepared for paint. All removable panels were prepped and painted in a 1974 color called Acid Blue. Those parts, except for the sunroof panel, are installed on the car. Receipts for the paint and bodywork, recovered interior components, and replacement parts total just under $20,000!
We took delivery of the car and parts exactly as they are shown in the pictures. Many original parts are present and included (all pictured), along with all of the replacement and reupholstered components. At this point, the engine choice needs to be determined (see below), the body and paint work completed, and the car assembled. The project is at a crossroads, with the choice to build a 2.7-liter hot rod or restore it to a number’s matching 2.2-liter 911T (or any other direction desired). We can finish it in terms of the buyer’s vision if desired or sell it as a project. Delivery is available for extra. We have priced it accordingly with lots of room for the new owner to finish it with considerable value remaining.
For an additional $18,500, we have a 2.7-liter carbureted 6-cylinder engine from a 1975 Porsche 911. The engine was retrofitted into a 1972 911T. It came to us from a local 911 enthusiast who is restoring that car back to stock. You can see videos of the engine running and driving in the car in the Bring a Trailer auction here: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1972-porsche-911t-38/. When the car came to Colorado, Eurosport Automotive did a leak down and compression test before the engine was pulled. Leak down numbers were 1 to 2%, with one cylinder at 3%. Compression numbers were 130-140PSI at Colorado air density. We purchased the engine and bore scoped the cylinders (no scoring), then installed fresh intake manifold gaskets and air filters. The only items of note we found are typical oil seeps and some sealant around one of the case bolts (a typical leak for this vintage). As it sits, it would be a perfect match for the 1971 911T project, transforming it into a similar spec to an S. We can also overhaul the engine if desired.
