Description for Porsche 911 1967

Originally purchased by Mr. Gene Dodd, this Polo red 1967 911S was his first Porsche. Unfortunately he is no longer with us, but I spoke extensively with his widow and son at the time I purchased the car. Apparently Gene bought this car and used it to get his SCCA license. He purchased and installed a roll bar and proceeded to use the car for gymkhanas, and other PCA and SCCA events. His son told me that in '69 he upgraded the wheels to deep sixes as soon as the dealership had a set in stock. In my research, I found the PCA ad he ran selling the original 4.5" Fuchs (read it and weep).
Sometime in 1969 according to his son Gene bought a 904 to race, and a second for a parts car (!). He then continued on an amateur racing career that I was only somewhat able to document, but have included below. Fast forward to a few years ago when I was able to buy the car. Make no mistake, it was rusty. It needed floors, rockers, front pan, and other metal work. Work came and went in fits and starts and then the car got pushed to the back. In the meantime and to keep my interest up during this dark period, we built the numbers matching motor up into a bit of a monster.
We limited the displacement to 2.3L so we didn't have to do anything irreversible to the case. Here's a brief list of the mods we did but keep in mind, I have the original pistons, cylinders, cam covers, distributor, and 40 Weber IDS carbs. With a little bit of additional sourcing you could easily return this motor to stock although you'd undo what turns out to be a remarkable engine. My intention was to keep the 67S power band, just enhance it a little more at the bottom and a LOT more up top so that the car felt relevant in modern traffic but still kept all the character of the car from whence it came.
2.3L Displacement
Twin Plug distributor
10.5 to 1 High compression pistons
46mm Weber Carbs
Pressure fed tensioners
Extensive case work
estimated 205hp
I can't really describe the scope of the work that has been done to bring the car to this point, so instead I'll let pictures do the job, but suffice to say that there is not one millimeter of rust on the car right now. It's had all new floors, inner & outer rockers, rear seat and firewall, front suspension pan, quarter panels, a door skin, and new hood. All Porsche panels where available, Dansk, and Restoration Design when not. 3-4 mm gaps throughout. It's close to final prime but I had a financial dispute (now resolved) with the paint shop and decided I did not trust them to finish the work.
I'm selling now because the car is at a crucial juncture. It can be finished as a 100% stock, numbers matching '67S, or you can do as I was planning to and do a color change and mildly hot rod the car. Essentially you are dealing with a blank canvas to create whatever '67S your heart desires. There are many parts waiting to be refurbished, but I bought the car as a project so take that with a grain of salt. Alas, no Fuchs are included with the sale.
