This incredible 911S won the under 2.0L class and was the first GT finisher - 9th overall - during the 1967 24 hour race at Daytona. Jack Ryan and Bill Bencker were the drivers.
The car led its class at the following 12 hour of Sebring race when Bill Bencker hit oil on the track and retired the car. Untouched for a couple of years, Russ Norburn bought the car but did not bring it into Trans Am duty. Instead, Phil reynolds worked the car into Trans Am and SCCA racing. He and Bob Beasley raced it quite successfully into the '70's (they won arace at VIR with this car).
The car was located (roll cage still in place) and restored in the late 80's by Scott Tyler. He introduced the car to vintage racing in 1991. Jim Hartman took delivery of the car in 1994 and has campaigned it principally in vintage events until the current owner, Larry Macks purchased the car in late 2004.
The car was then transported to KTR to undergo a full restoration bringing the car back to the look of how it raced at Daytona in 1967. The car is currently raced at vintage events.
