Lot Details & Additional Photographs
VIN: 9113103053 Engine #6134866 Mileage: 107,400
**New Information added; 2nd owner confirmed that he purchased the car with 800 miles from an insurance company, after it was involved in an accident. My inability to determine any evidence of a collision, was verified by him to the quality of the repair. Car is straight. Also the piston and rod upgrade made the car to "E" spec, for increased compression. Also, the car was a half year model and had CIS injection. Some suspension noise, likely bushings, and will need a tune up and service.**
With ownership since 1977, and notes indicating that the original owner blueprinted the 2.4 liter engine and rebuilt with pistons from the "E" model, which increases displacement to 2.7 liters. Fuel injection was new to the 911 in 1973, and provided more reliability and power. This car is designated a T model and was factory fitted with fuel injection, and subsequently has had a Weber carburetion system installed, and certainly internal modifications were performed to allow this. With a five speed manual transmission. An electronic ignition system and special exhaust is present as well. This engine was rebuilt again in 2009, with less than 4000 miles.
Originally Gold, a thorough second repaint in Blue that included the removal of doors, hood, decklid, trim, quarter glass, and bumpers.

The seats appear to be Recaro seats recovered in leather, per notes.

Chip loved to race. He was competitive in Formula V racing and owned several cars for competition. He raced at road courses all over the east coast, and The Virginia International Speedway was his favorite. This 1973 was Chip's third 911 in 7 years. His first one, a new 1969 model, was totaled by a deer weeks after purchase. The second one met a similar fate. This one however was purchased from Dr. Jim Bales of Greensboro, North Carolina in 1977 and already had some modifications made to it. Chip continued this and this became sort of a hot rod for him, that provided many hours of tweaking and enhancing its performance.
