Porsche 1974 RS – Track Ready – Street Legal – Daily Driver!
I am ready for anyone who wants to do a PPI on it, or test drive it. Clear Title, currently registered till MAR 2015. (Smog Exempt)
WHAT IS THIS CAR?
Velocity Yellow 1974 911 RS, Built from a straight rolling chassis, 930 turbo metal flares. No rust anywhere on this car. Completely sorted out prior to painting January 2009. 1980 SC motor rebuilt by Tom Amon (40 year veteran Porsche mechanic). DUCK TAIL, red roll bar, Sunroof, 74 Tranny gearing, mechanical speedo. Custom built for the sporty look that is so classic. Aero Mirrors, Minimal graphics, not over done. (Economy in California forces sale – I love everything about this car – it’s gritty, no nonsense, driver dream…)
It’s not 100% polished, but has that edge that is lacking in every other car I have owned. It’s mean, plenty of power, but demands your attention. A pleasure to drive daily, but weekend thriller. It’s got that slightly ‘un-civilized’ feel. It’s not tame. You have to respect the car.
“It’s that throaty roar and rumbling CAMs that make the personality of this car truly irresistible!!”

This car is not a garage queen. It gets driven almost daily in Sacramento. It’s got a 3.0 Liter and Tom or any other Porsche guy will verify for you that if you want reliable, rock solid transportation in a 911, you get the 3.0 Liter, with CIS. That is what it has. It’s basically bullet proof. You can drive it hard all the time, and it just begs for more. It’s not a delicate machine. It’s built to last.
