Porsche 935/76 configuration 2 from 1
This Porsche 935/76 modified by me was originally made by Luso-toys with Ref. M8-b as a Porsche 935/76 low nose that raced at the 1976 Mugello 6 hr with #4. The original Luso-toys model is depicted next:
To convert it to the model that raced at Vallelunga in 1976 that had near vertical headlamp housings because Jochen Mass felt that the slant nose configuration was giving too much front down force, so for the second race at Vallelunga the old headlights were re-installed.
Then the final result is the car, Porsche 935/76 s/n: R15. 935 002 (converted Porsche 930/72 s/n: 930 670 0002 ) that raced at Vallelunga in 1976 #1 Gr.:5 with Jacky Ickx and Jochen Mass 1st OA 270 laps 143.8km/h Grid=1st Engine was, flat 6cyl sohc turbo 2856cc 590 hp at 7900 rpm 434 lb.ft at 5400 rpm CR=6.5:1 340 km/h accel 0 to 100 km/h = 3.3 sec 970kg
