In 2013, we decided to restore a 1972 911ST – our first!
The project started off the same way most restoration projects do: we sanded the body down and realized there was more rust damage than we had anticipated.
The sanding also revealed that the 911 had been in a front-end collision, meaning we had to replace the entire inner fender.
This model of Porsche didn’t come with proper ending panels and didn’t have rock guard, so we would be doing the same with this restoration.
The ST we purchased was produced for racing. While American race cars were building bigger engines to win races, Porsche increased their horsepower and made their cars more nimble and a lot lighter – which proved to be successful.
These models also didn’t come with ashtrays, glove boxes, the heating and ductwork was removed and the gas tank fill was located under the hood.
Check out the video to see the ST before we restored it, and check out our other videos to see the restoration process!
