Merit Partners is pleased to present this 1974 Porsche 911 RSR tribute finished in Mexico Blue over a custom black interior. We acquired this car from a very good local client who traded the car to us. A full description of everything that was done to the car prior to us getting it is below. After we acquired the car late last year, we begin an even more extensive process on the aesthetics of the car by redoing all the exterior trim including lights with a very expensive brushed nickel coating exactly like Singer uses. We then did another tune on the car and redid some of the mechanicals to get the car in even better running condition.
Showcasing widened fenders, revised styling and an upgraded 2.7 L engine, this 911 underwent a complete RSR-inspired transformation in early of 2020. This 911 was taken down to bare metal and professionally refinished in Mexico Blue. The paint is stated to be in fantastic condition, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery. The body has been revised with fiberglass front and rear bumpers as well as steel Turbo rear fenders and widened fiberglass front fenders. Other noteworthy details include all-new glass, backdated markers, a ducktail spoiler, LED headlights and custom “Porsche” lettering. This 911 rides on aftermarket Fuchs-style wheels which remain in excellent condition and come wrapped in Sumitomo tires.
The cabin of this 911 has been completely redone in custom black leatherette. Modifications include a MOMO leather wrapped steering wheel, a Wevo aluminum shifter, black door cards with light red pulls, new carpeting and a Rennline pedal set with passenger side floorboard. Custom blue and yellow plaid bucket seats have also been added with the rear seats done in matching upholstery. The pedal assembly has been rebuilt with brass bushings and the original gauges remain in place along with the original dashboard with a radio delete applied.
This 911 has been equipped with a 1975-sourced 2.7 L flat-six engine which is mated to a rebuilt 915 5-speed manual transmission. The engine is stated to have been completely rebuilt prior to installation and fitted with the following performance upgrades:
WebCam Racing Cams
Rebuilt Weber Carburetors
92mm Cylinder and JE Piston Set
Dansk Sport Muffler
During the time of the build a new clutch kit was also installed along with new wheel bearings, a 20mm front sway bar, 911 S suspension and rebuilt brake calipers. With barely any miles added since the completion of the build, this 911 is extremely fresh and a wonderful car to drive.
The sale of this 911 will include a master key, books, and records. If you are in the market for a custom air-cooled Porsche, this tastefully executed RSR tribute makes a fantastic choice.
