In one of the recent reports, it is reported that RM Sotheby’s is going to auction a wide range of cars, comprising from antique to historically important ones, in its 10th annual Paris auction.
One of the most antique standouts is the Bare-Metal 1964 Porsche 904 GTS. This car had attracted the attention of many in its time as a sports car and GT competition winner.
Porsche 904 GTS was a successor to the Porsche 718 and during its time it had made victory in several events.
This car has original factory bodywork equipped with a quad-cam, air-cooled, and opposed four-cylinder engine, which will get you about 260 horses.
Adding to that power is a 5-speed gearbox, a set of Weber Brevettato EW carburetors, and a center exhaust.
The interior also shows the 904’s pedigree. The racing bucket seats come with Schroth Racing and Willans multi-point harnesses, the gear knob is made up of chrome, and the steering wheel is wrapped in Alcantara and exhibits a Porsche badge.
A fire extinguisher is installed in the cabin, which can be used in any unforeseen situation. In addition, the car has maintained its originality as you will find speedster-style mirrors, vintage Dunlop racing tires, leather belts, and rear clamshell fasteners that are original and belong to that era.
However, RM Sotheby’s has yet to release an estimated price for this car, but models in similar condition sell for between $700,000 and $2 million.
