No Bozos Racing - 1965 Porsche 911

The Transport Awaits The Farewell, Brevard, NC, March 24, 2018 The Loading Secured

The Final Farewell

This was a bittersweet day for Rocky and me. We had found a great new owner who we knew would provide the best of care, usage and maintenance/restoration for the 1965 Porsche 911 that I'd owned since 1985 but, also, we had to say "Goodbye". It was a cold, gloomy day as we pulled in behind the transporter and were greeted by the driver, Sid, who I immediately liked because he understood that this was a family member we were entrusting to his care. Sid let me drive the car onto the lift and then into the tranport itself before killing the ignition for the last time. Rocky was already tearing up so I felt it best to thank Sid for his kindness and care, take one last picture as he secured our precious cargo and then head back home knowing the Blue Meanie would see better days ahead. May it see good weather and dry roads. Auf Wiedersehen!

1965 Porsche 911

This car was originally purchased in 1985 from John Kendrick of Coral Gables, FL who had rebuilt it for use in autocrossing. However, before he was totally done with the rebuilding he acquired a Super Vee which became is "go to" car for autocrossing and he contacted me to see if I had any interest in the Porsche. Of course I said I'd like to see it and test drive it when it became available and that happened in February of 1985. I really liked the car and what John had done to prepare it for both street and autocross use so we got together and John simply sold it to me for what he had in the car (less a lot of his time, I'm guessing...). This allowed me to focus the preparation of Thelma (1970 Porsche 911ST) for use in Vintage Racing events while the '65 took over the autocrossing duties. I drove this car to many, many championships in South Florida (SCCA, PCA and local sports car club series) and to second place overall in the 1990 Porsche Parade in Boston where is was sponsored by Brumos Porsche. It is still a very fast, competitive car.

What This Car Has

Kardex sheetThis car has all matching serial numbers as described in the letter of authenticity from the office of Jurgen Barth. The transmission is the original unit and has the "mountain gear set" which is a close-ratio set. The engine is the original case though it has been line-bored to 2.7 specifications and has the matching pistons and cylinders. The heads have been flowed and ported and the current carburation is Weber IDA 40mm. Ignition is MSD (I may have the original CD box). The wood dashboard remains intact. I believe the guages are original.

What This Car Does NOT Have

The bodywork and suspension for this car has been heavily modified for its intended purpose. Basically, the suspension is 1985 vintage with aluminum trailing arms cut and shortened for the shorter wheelbase; the brakes are of the same vintage ('85). The front fenders are from a later model 911 (small flares), the rear flares are fiberglass, the front and rear bumpers are fiberglass and the interior and seats have been updated. The gas tank is incorrect (later year space-saver spare version) and the brake cylinder has been updated to dual-cylinder specs (I may have the original). I believe the window frames are from a later year model as well. The radio is non-original. The engine air cleaners are K&N.
