1976 MFI 2.7 #9050 Moves to Oregon

The body, parts, and everything but the interior for chassis 911 660 9050 was picked up last weekend by Concours Transport and has now arrived in the shop of a serious Porsche fanatic: Tim Morris of German Master Tech in Bend, Oregon.  Tim has mostly focused on restoring and hot rodding early long hood 911s like the '67 911S project that Bruce Canepa recently sold.  However, Tim is also no stranger to later 911s and has worked on several Euro Carreras already.

Over the years Tim has restored a number of cars that have won a variety of awards, including:

  • Best of Class, Porsche - Forest Grove Concourse D'Elegance (Forest Grove, OR)
  • Best of Class, Short Wheel Base 911 - Concourse on the Aves (Carmel, CA)
  • Best of Class, Early Post-war Microcar - Legends of the Autobahn (Carmel Valley, CA)
  • Best of Class, BMW - Legends of the Autobahn (Carmel Valley, CA)
While many of Tim's restorations have instructions from the owners to improve their cars with all the trick period items, he is also willing to take the time necessary for ensuring a car is restored exactly as it left the factory decades before.  This takes patience and dedication to do all the necessary research, finding the right finishes for each part, sourcing rare or NLA parts, and often dealing with limited information.

This philosophy aligns well with the goals for '76 MFI 2.7 #9050 where we are shooting for absolute authenticity over improving what Porsche built.  Our one exception will likely be upgrading the Carrera chain tensioner to ensure the integrity of the engine is maintained as the car will eventually be driven on long distance rallies and tours, after participating in a few concours.

Stay tuned for future installments covering the restoration of '76 MFI 2.7 #9050.
