Chassis no. 9117600881. White with Martini graphics. RHD, 3.0 litre flat six 953 type engine, white Fuchs wheels, brush guard, rally lights, ducktail spoiler, Sabelt harnesses, Momo steering wheel, rally instruments.

Evaluation: Built for the 30,000-kilometer 1977 London Sydney Marathon and piloted by Polish crew Sobislav Zasada and Wojciecj Schramm. They led the rally for much of the running but eventually finished in 13th place. Also competed in the Repco Reliability Trial around Australia (1979), the Australian Safari Rally (1985 and 1988), Targa Tasmania (1996), London Sydney Marathon (2004), and the East African Classic Safari Rally). Last appeared at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2019.

Considered the most traveled 911 ever, having covered rally distances of more than three laps around the world. With a recent correct 3.0 litre flat-six 953 type engine and the original 2.7-litre unit included in the sale, this car’s main cachet is its acceptance into almost any historic sporting event. Converted to right-hand drive in 1978 and passed through many owners and workshops since. Presented on a plinth, the mud-splattered rally car makes quite an impact. The front bars are chipped, and the front valance is bent and dented. Good wheels with worn tires. The body shell looks straight which considering the miles covered is incredible. The interior is as dusty and used as the exterior, the floor pans have been painted over rust lumps. A battle-hardened veteran, but it still looks ready to tackle more.

Bottom Line: It’s dirty and it’s battle-scarred, and for all its competitive mileage it never achieved any major success, but the possibilities for this rally 911 are endless and it has proven itself to be tough as nails. Although 200 grand seems like a lot for a grimy old race car (and it is), this car is usable, and historic rallying is becoming increasingly popular in Europe, where it will hopefully be a regular sight racking up even more competitive mileage.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
