In stock now is this beautiful left hand drive 911 RS/ST conversion. Based on a 1973 911T the car has done just 85796 miles from new and was originally from the USA, a genuine R-Gruppe car.

Starting with a solid original car the US owner stripped the car back to the bare metal and replaced anything that needed work. A factory set of original RS rear arches were correctly butt welded to the rear and then the entire car was repainted its original light yellow, an original 1973 RS colour. When the car was reassembled all new trim, lenses, rubbers, interior pieces, glass and headlining were fitted.

Mechanical wise the engine was rebuilt to a very strong 2.4 S spec with fully rebuilt Weber carburetors. A 7R case was used as well as 2.2S pistons, the cylinder heads custom ported and the 915 gearbox rebuilt. A lot of time and money was spent on the car, the bodyshop bill alone came to $13,000.

The car was then sold to another American owner who spent a further $15,000 perfecting the car. No expense was spared and all work was done to a fanatical level of detail with top quality components. Work included:

* Exhaust and heat exchangers replaced with SSI stainless system
* Installed hydraulic tensioners
* Webers rebuilt
* Pointless / MSD ignition system by Andial
* RS front and rear bumpers
* Powder coated carb covers
* K&N air filters
* New Clock
* All oil lines and return tubes replaced
* Installed external oil cooler system from 89 Carrera in front right bumper with oil lines
* Complete RS lightweight interior including Rallye ST seats and 5 point belts, lightweight door cards, lightweight carpets, Momo Prototipo steering wheel
* 911 R/ST powder coated roll bar
* New 19mm front antiroll bar and rear 22mm
* New Carrera front and rear brakes
* All bushings replaced with upgraded Elephant items
* Welmeister front strut brace
* Rear monoball kit
* 911 SC adjustable spring plates
* High torque starter motor
* New aluminium valve covers
* New tyres
* Cibie Rallye lights with custom mounts
* Extra fibreglass ducktail rear engine cover
* New H4 headlights with Euro style yellow covers
* Optima gel battery
* Corner weighted

All this work was carried out in the last 15,000 miles so the car is fresh and ready to enjoy.

In 2008 our customer imported the car from the USA into the UK where it was UK registered on a correct age related L suffix registration number.

Since coming into the UK the car has been worked upon by Maxted-Page & Prill and ourselves. In 2008 the car was given a thorough service and check over prior to registration, fluids, filters and plugs changed. Then in 2009 the car got a new set of FIA approved Fuchs alloys. Finally in 2010 we serviced and tuned the car, changed the brake pads and front wheel bearings.

With a weight of 2200lbs (just less than a tonne) the car develops 200HP which makes it very quick, nimble and great fun to drive.

The car is available for domestic customers and also ready to be exported anywhere in the world.

Here at Specialist Cars of Malton we ensure our cars are the best quality cars in the country, this attention to detail has seen us voted Independent Porsche Sales Garage of the Year by 911UK members three years running!

We start off by picking the best cars for stock, of the 3 or 4 cars we get offered every day we buy only the best one or two a month.

Upon sale each and every car is taken to our workshops where it goes through our thorough 74 point check to make sure everything works as it should and is in good condition. Next the car is given a major service and the service book stamped accordingly. We carry out a 4 wheel alignment on the cars and an aircon service on cars with airconditioning. The car will then go to a local independent MOT station for a year’s MOT. We tax the car for a year and fill the fuel tank.

Next the cars go to our team of professional detailers who spend up to a week preparing the car cosmetically. Any stonechips are removed, the wheels refurbed if necessary and the wheel hubs are painted. The seats are removed and cleaned. Next the car is detailed using Zymol professional products to give a long lasting lustre.

Finally, and arguably most importantly, we warranty every car for a year from bumper to bumper, anywhere in the world. This is not a bought in warranty, we stand by each and every car we sell for a year.

We believe we are the only Porsche specialist in the UK to offer a service like this.

We have a covered transporter and can deliver vehicles anywhere in the UK.
