I found this car locally that needed floors and a total restoration. It came with a very rusty 912 that I parted out and kept the engine, transaxle & rear suspension. After replacing the floors, rebuilding the engine and brakes I found the transaxle needed rebuilding also. With the parts from the 912 I decided to make the plunge and build an Outlaw. After driving and enjoying the car with the 5 speed & 900 rear suspension I decided to take it off the road October last year to finish what I had started 15 yrs ago. Mods include the early 900 rear suspension 901/5 speed, 2.7ltr type IV f.i., crankfire, drysump. Rear fenders were split to accomodate Coddington 7" alloys. After getting the car back from paint mid July, the front and rear suspension is in and the front of the car is finished except for the bumper. Moving back to the wiring under dash now.

It looks extremely nice. Does Stoddard stock an oversize rear bumper?

Martin thanks. No to your question, I picked up a rear bumper at a swap meet & cut it just ouside of the mounts and welded sections back in. It about 3 1/2 to 4" wider than a stock rear bumper, and now has GT trim. Mike

Outlaw with similar rear fender mods just sold on BAT: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1963-porsche-356b-18/ Stock transmission though. Is your car an early C? I noticed the front closing panel is flat like the early C's I just noticed that the head says 64C so must be an early one.
