This beautiful 911S seen here was prepared and upgraded to GT specs for racing by Sten Axelson who raced the car in a variety of Swedish motoring competitions. It then passed to Lars Elgen who added motor modifications purpose built for racing in the Swedish Championship. While a privateer entry, car and driver surpassed the factory cars and their works professional drivers and took the 2nd Place trophy. The car repeated its achievement when next owned and raced by Yngve Johansson who finished the year 1969 in 2nd position in the Swedish Championship standings. In 1968 Johansson, joined by team mate Peter Gregg, entered the 911S in the vaunted Nürburgring 1000 where it maintained its reputation, besting many factory machines by taking 4th in its 2000cc class. It continued to add a list a fine showings at Spa, Hockenheim and again at Nürburgring until it went into semi-retirement in 1971 re-emerging in 1998 where it placed 4th in the Tour Auto. In 2002 it was brought from Europe and has since then been on display at the celebrated Blackhawk Collection and now offered for the first time.
