This beautifully prepared 911S offers a great opportunity to go historic racing. Built up from a very nice road car in the early 1990’s for U.S. SCCA vintage competition it has enjoyed a very successful career since then. The previous owner, famed racer Monte Shelton, successfully raced Porsches in the 1960s and 1970s and more recently has become a major sponsor of historic events as well as continuing to compete in his own cars. This car was particularly close to his heart and he raced it in many SCCA events and there are on file 2 vehicle / driver logbooks, one of them full of scrutineer’s signatures recording Monte’s extensive exploits with the car.
The bodyshell is immaculate, finished in white with Martini stripes. It features a full rollcage, a high back racing seat and racing seatbelts. The dashboard is dominated by a 10,000rpm rev. counter alongside the standard 911 oil pressure, temperarture and level gauges plus two supplementary gauges for fuel pressure and volts mounted below the dash. The rest of the interior has been stripped for competition with lightweight door panels fitted, Perspex quarterlights and rear side windows. An ATL fuel cell and fire extinguisher system are fitted.
The engine, rebuilt by renowned expert Dick Elverude only one race ago, displaces 1,991cc and the correct factory mechanical Bosch fuel injection and produces an estimated 225bhp, more than enough to propel this relatively light car at impressive speeds.
The original 901 type gearbox has been uprated to the tougher 915 type, fitted with close ratio gears and steel synchro rings plus ZF limited slip differential. Suspension has been suitably upgraded and the car rides on factory Fuchs wheels.
It has had a most successful racing career over the years; witness the full SCCA logbooks recording competition success all over the USA and full of complimentary comments from scrutineers. The history file also includes the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity (number PCNA2868) and a recent article on Monte Shelton, the famous US racing driver and the car’s last long term owner, still racing at the age of 80!
