1968 Porsche 911 T Jezebel VIN: 11820809 The famous Rusty Bond Jezebel" has had the most remarkable racing history. Built by the factory in April of 1968 as a lightweight, customer rally racing special, it was equipped with a 160 hp 911S engine, 100 liter gas tank, rollbar, limited slip differential, six inch front and seven inch rear alloy wheels, special steering wheel, racing exhaust system, and crankcase ventilation with sump. It was delivered to VW of the Pacific in Culver City, California in its Light Ivory paint and black interior. Jacques Duval of Quebec, Canada saw an ad for the car in Competition Press and had it immediately shipped to him, where it appeared in the first Montreal International Car Show in January of 1969. The car left directly from the show to participate in its first race, the 1969 24 Hours of Daytona. Fitted with Minilite wheels the freshman car finished 2nd in class and 9th overall. Duval would race the car six more times before selling it to Ash Tisdelle and Pete Kirill in November of 1970. It was during the Tisdelle-Kirill era that Jezebel" got her name. The car was raced at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1971 finishing 2nd in GTU and 11th overall. It also took part in the Inaugural Camel GT race at Talladega finishing 3rd in GTU and 4th overall. In the spring of 1973 the car was sold to George Rollin of Ocala, Florida. He ran the 24 Hours of Daytona twice with a finish of 1st in the GT class and 10th overall. He also participated in IMSA events up to 1973. At that point the car had been modified with a 2.3 liter engine, CD ignition, and bigger brakes. It was painted Sunoco" blue with red and orange stripes. Rusty Bond purchased the car in November of 1973. Bond and co-owner Ren Tilton would race the car from 1973 to 1984 putting on a grand total of 23,000 miles. The team won the GTU division at the 1975 24 Hours of Daytona, and the 1979 12 Hours of Sebring. The team almost always finished in the top ten and had 17 podium finishes. Bond and Tilton sold the car in 1984 to Larry Figaro. At that time the car was painted white with orange numbers, the rear suspension had been updated long wheel base" specification, wider wheels and fender flairs. Figaro painted the car black and competed in IMSA and local SCCA events for three years. His best result was a 4th in class at the 1986 12 Hours of Sebring. Figaro sold the car to Paul Goral in November of 1986. Goral did not race the car much and sold it to Frank Martinelli in the spring of 1987. Martinelli's best finish with the car was 5th in GTU and 22nd overall at the 1988 12 Hours of Sebring. After Sebring the car would go un-raced for ten years. In the late 1990's Martinelli decided to restore the car back to it's original 2.0-liter specification for vintage racing. The car was completely disassembled and entrusted to Porsche restoration expert Greg Michaelian for chassis, body and paint. The chassis was in remarkably good shape considering the number of races it had competed in and required very little repair. A new factory floor and rockers were the only items that needed to be replaced in the tub. The rest of the tub is completely original including the dash with factory chassis number. The roll cage was not altered and remains just as it was during the Rusty Bond days. Period correct fiberglass front fenders, hood, engine lid, bumpers, and flared rear quarter panels were installed during the restoration. Mark Eskuche of Ecurie Engineering, Inc. rebuilt the 210 HP engine to original 2.0-liter racing specifications including: Flowed and ported twin plug heads, with 45mm intake and 39mm exhaust valves 906 cams 81mm new pistons and cylinders with 12.5 to 1 compression 46mm carbs Electronic ignition 911S fully counter weighted crank Carrillo rods Light Flywheel Period correct fiberglass shrouds complete the engine compartment. The transmission was also completely rebuilt and has a factory limited slip and short ratio gears. The race suspension rides on 6x15 front and 7x15 rear Mininlite alloy wheels and features fully adjustable anti-roll bars. The brakes are period correct 911S alloy front calipers and rear steel calipers. The car participated in Rennsport IV and the past two Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunions. Jezebel has been entered and accepted to this year's Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion where it is eligible to participate in the 911 only race, celebrating 50 years of the Porsche 911.
