If you wanted your 1967 911S supplied in competition spec you specified it with a rally kit and a sport kit, among other things. But what exactly was in the kits? According to the factory’s Competition Driver publication – the prototype of its much longer and more detailed Sports Purposes manual – the rally kit for the 911S consisted of a pair of bucket seats, with sports seats a no-cost alternative, rubber floor mats and a driver’s foot ...
