As Formula 1 continues its uprise as one of the most celebrated sports in the world, avid fans look back on the early days when the grid was filled with other well-known sports car manufacturers. One of those early participants was Porsche, which now dominates every modern aspect of automotive motorsports except F1. The collector car specialists at Euro Prestige Imports are proud to present this 1962 Porsche 804 F1 re-creation open-wheel race car as part of their extensive inventory of exotic cars and SUVs.
The amazing Recreation of the Porsche 804 F1 Open Wheel Race Car resembles the exact spec driven by British racer Brian Redman, of which only four true examples were built by Porsche. Wilson Collection of Jupiter Florida oversaw the project as a faithful representation of the Porsche landmark entry in Formula 1 racing.
The hand-hammered aluminum body features a period-correct gloss silver finish with #30 on each side. The five-lug alloy sport wheels and ply tires are updated with suspension engineered to use Porsche 911 torsion bars, Penske shocks, and 4-wheel disc brakes. Inside the tight race-inspired cabin is a single red leather sports seat placed beneath a fixed roll cage. Its open-wheel configuration positions the driver securely behind its steering column, with gauges titled in vintage racing fashion.
At the heart of the 1962 Porsche 804 F1 re-creation is a Flat 6-cylinder engine built by the 901 Shop in Stuart, Florida. A Hewland 5-speed manual gearbox provides the experience of driving a world-class vintage Porsche F1 race car.
