William I'Anson Ltd are excited to offer for sale the Ex-Marty Hinze, Whittington Brothers, Preston Henn, T-Bird Swap Shop, 3rd Overall in the Sebring 12 Hours, IMSA, 1979 Porsche 935 A. I. R. M16/ K3.
The iconic 911 does not come in a more imposing format than the stunning, powerful and domineering 935.
In its current format, 470 12CA was driven to 3rd overall in the 1981 Sebring 12 Hours and 5th overall in the Watkins Glen 6 Hours the same year. Co-driven by Le Mans winner Bill Whittington at Sebring and his younger brother Dale at Watkins Glen.
470 12CA competed in the Sebring 12 Hours a staggering five times from 1979 to 1986.
Raced extensively in IMSA by then owner Marty Hinze sharing on a number of occasions by all three Whittington Brothers, Preston Henn of T-Bird Swap Shop fame and MOMO founder Gianpiero Moretti.
Raced by Mike Gammino in the late 1990s early 2000s, winning the HSR ThunderSports series outright.
Restored back to its 1982 Sebring 12 Hour T-Bird Swap Shop livery in its current ownership, with the engine rebuilt by Dick Evelrude in Portland, Oregon.
With only a few hours running on it since the restoration this offers a wonderfully exciting and usable entry for Peter Auto’s prestigious CER2, Le Mans Classic and of course the Historic Daytona 24 Hour and Sebring Historics. Having raced in the Sebring 12 hours a staggering five times in period it should feel right at home.
