    959 restoration

    This site is worth a regular look for any 959 fans: http://www.959registry.org/

    It's the owner of Pelican Parts in the USA, detailing his gentle restoration of a 959. Some really interesting stuff there.

    Re: 959 restoration

    I took this picture last month at the porsche museum in Zuffenhausen. It was amazing to see such a rare car up close.

    Re: 959 restoration

    The car from the museum is not the final 959, it should be the studie-Car "Gruppe B"

    I was in Germany in May of 2006 and took this photo. This car was absolutely not a final 959. It actually looked like a prototype, almost a concept car or mockup. It did have a Gruppe B study placard. Does anyone know the full story behind this car at the museum?

    I guess the headlights should have been my clue. I was so taken with it I didn't see the difference. Reading the display card would have clarified it but I was rushing to get over and see all those 356's. I felt like a kid in a candy store.

    Speaking of 356's was Number 1 there when you were?

    Re: 959 restoration

    Yes it was indeed. Unfortunately the picture is alittle fuzzy. But the memory in my mind isn't.

    Re: 959 restoration



    Awww yeah!!! That was me in there the end of this july. I was freaking out, my dream racecar!

    Re: 959 restoration

    I posted some pictures of the guards red 959 in the boston showroom that i took some months back.

    There was a very interesting thread on pelican posted by wayne the owner of his replacement of a part deep inside the engine compartment.

    It was so similiar to my own experiences working in the close confines of the 928 engine bay. So many of the parts seem shared including the air cleaner.

    Re: 959 restoration

    Does anybody know if there is a 964 RS in the Porsche museum at Zuffenhausen?

    They do not have a 964 RS in the old museum in Stuttgart, but I am pretty sure there will have one in the new museum.

    In the Leipzig factory they habe some really nice classic Porsches in the first floor, there is a 964 cup Car in black.

    Re: 959 restoration

    Last fall there were three 959s awaiting restoration at the Zuffenhausen Classics dept. There was quite a waiting queue of other models, as well. Also included was a bent up 997 GT3RS. I asked what happened? The mgr said, "I don't know, someone got carried away at Weissach, I guess."
