1974 Porsche 911 RSR/B Production SCCA Historic Race Car

Porsche 911 Carrera/RSR. In 1974, Porsche was putting much of their factory support behind racing versions of the 914. The owner of this car felt the 911 was a pure winner from the start. While also campaigning a 914 in SCCA E-Production, he built this 1974 911 Carrera into an SCCA B-Production car. The car chalked up Porsche’s FIRST win in SCCA B-Production at Lime Rock Park. The 55 car also completed the 12 hour Sebring race once and the 24 Hours of Daytona three times with the last being in 1986. This steel bodied 1974 911S was featured in Excellence Magazine in December of 2002 as well as Rennsport Reunions I & II. In 2002 the 55 car was Class Champion with SVRA. The car features a 3.4 engine and a 915 transmission that was built by marque specialist, Dawes Motorsports Development. A complete restoration was performed several years ago and the car has not been campaigned since. It has participated in the Rennsport Reunion, Daytona Historics and is possibly eligible for FIA qualification.

The car was most recently owned by the late Peter Callaghan and holds a significant place in automotive racing history with ties to Jo Hoppen, Peter Gregg and Brumos. This car raced against the likes of Sam Posey in a factory RSR and even out qualified Peter Gregg in a 911 Trans-Am car at Lime Rock in 1974.

The car comes with historic period photos and an extensive race history.

Mark Starr has been buying and selling European and collectable cars since 1970. That was before he even had a drivers license. The love and passion for automotive design has been there since his early roots in Brooklyn starting with with MGs, Austin Healeys, Alfa Romeos and Porsches. He would search for cars through the Buy Lines and instead of partying with friends on a Saturday night, he’d await the early arrival of the Sunday NY Times and its automotive classified section. Although times and methods have changed, his passion for getting a jump on everyone and unearthing the best, rarest and most coveted cars remains to this day. Mark spent many years in the late 70’s and early 80’s as one of the first to import exclusive automobiles that ordinarily would not have graced our shores — Ferrari 308 Quattrovalvoles, 512BBs, Audi Sport Quattros, BMW M6s and powerful AMG tuned Mercedes Benzes. As a pioneering leader in the grey-market importation craze of the 80’s, Mark appeared on many television shows such as The Today Show and Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous as well as numerous articles in the NY Times and other periodicals. After several years in the menswear industry, the constant calling and deep rooted passion for automobiles led Mark back to his greatest passion and Hunting Ridge Motors Inc. was formed in 1995. His involvement, love and admiration for Lotus cars then led him to become an authorized Lotus dealer and at that time the largest Lotus dealer in the world. The passion now lies with the unearthing, restoration and marketing of vintage, sport and race cars and Mark takes prides in foreseeing collector car trends as he has done in the past with Ferrari, early Porsche cars, vintage BMWs and Volvo 1800’s. Each and every car in the HRM inventory is carefully selected to represent Mark’s philosophy that cars don’t necessarily need to be expensive to be collectable and a wide variety of vehicles and price points are important to help you find that matching set of unique style, design and performance attributes in your next vehicle, whether it be for driving or collecting.
