[WANTED] Carrera 3.0 tail with rubber

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm chasing a 76-77 Carrera 3.0 tail ideally with rubber lip attached. Any leads would be appreciated. 

Cheers, Hugh.

Hi Tom

I have a 1976 911 (i series) that currently has a whale-tail engine lid (see picture).

I am considering replacing it with a standard one. 

Let me know if your engine lid would fit.

Thank you

Rory

Does Neville Bartos still have his @hugh?

Nope, he sold it. I know where it went though, trying to remember if it was a C3 tail?

Hugh this came up a few days ago, sounds very cheap. Not my line of expertise, I have no idea if it's anywhere near a correct one or what you're after...

This is correct for 77 model here in Aus.

Make sure it's not rusty inside the rubber sections and that the mounting studs are all there not snapped off.

Cheers mate. I'm actually after a fibreglass one, not that keen on the all rubber ones.

I have one.

But it comes with a car attached, and would be expensive. 

Sorry, that wasn't very helpful was it.

He wanted one with no grill?  

Yours has the secondary AC grill in it.  Or is it grille ?

Yes, some have a single and some have 2? Was that AC dependent?

So I'm far from an authority on this, but it *is* my favourite 911 tail, so here is what I know:

1975-77 3.0 turbo - tail with 'normal' grille and secondary larger grille.  I *think* all 930s came with AC standard.  There was a internal FG shroud from the second grill down to the fan, which is what I understand to be the driver in the size difference.

1975-77 Carrera 3.0 - same shape but single grill - no AC (also some 74s - I don't know if a duck was ever standard on a 74)

1975-77 Carrera 3.0 - AC with small grill - same as Mike's above.

Also fitted to the US only 1980 Weissach edition, which was a standard SC with tail and sports seats.  However, this had standard AC fitted but no second grille

To make it confusing the RSR also had a second grill in a bigger tail, I don't know what that was for - i'm guessing not AC

Finding the part numbers is apparently a challenge, because like seats, there are only component part numbers not assembly part numbers.

I thought the smallest grill was for an auxilliary oil cooler mounted in the tail, as shown on the RSR.
