Matching numbers.
This car represents a great opportunity to own a RSR Evocation, a project that was fuelled by complete enthusiasm and passion which can be easily seen due to the incredible attention to detail in every decision that was made concerning the rebuild of the car. This can even be seen in the decision made choosing the donor car, where a 964 Carrera 4 was chosen for it’s advances in technology such as Power Steering and ABS, but also with the car being originally blue and more impressively not having a sunroof which came as a standard option. The very respected Pro-9 in Redditch were selected to rebuild the car.
The body was stripped and rebuilt with full photographic records to IROC RSR specification with steel RSR arches. The removal of sound deadening and thick glue alone took two weeks. The car was married with a lightweight ducktail, front and rear bumpers and bespoke design Custom Cages full welded-in roll cage for safety. The aforementioned air conditioning and front oil coolers remain in original position leaving possibility for a large oil cooler in the front opening. Light Perlon carpet set, lightweight dashboard (with important attention to detail such as no dash vents), Alcantara door tops and dashtop, relocated air vents to footwells and HVAC unit moved inside the glovebox (at a cost of more than £1500!), show that no corners were cut in the cabin either. Central locking was added for convenience, whilst computer reset buttons were moved to the period correct carbon-weave dashboard with period toggle switches, race cut-off, push-button start and all 1970’s switchgear. A Sparco black suede race steering wheel of the 1970’s style plus date-correct Rennsport bucket seats (XXL DEKA approved with strong frames) on sliding 964 runners make a previously terrible driving position perfectly comfortable.
Sparco harnesses, RS style door cards, black windscreen washers, age related rear number plate with correct 1970’s dealer details (Dick Lovett) and phone number, lightweight number plate lights, HID headlight system, remote Thatcham 1 alarm, front tow strap and even 1976 period windscreen tax disc show that no detail has been overlooked.
Mechanically, the 3.6 litre engine was rebuilt in November 2014 with engine bay repainted to Gulf Blue. HR springs and Bilstein coil over shocks which lower by 30mm, plus K&N cone induction, 9F engine chip and Fabspeed twin-exit custom exhaust in stainless steel enables the heater and cats to remain functioning correctly.
Finally, correct style 16″ original Fuchs wheels – front and rear – with correct spacers, blacked-out oil, period rear light units, 3.6 engine bay badging, plus rear Gulf Racing grill-badge complete the package.
