Chassis: 917-037
Built in 1970 as a spare chassis and reportedly entered for the 1970 Le Mans by Gulf Racing, this car was ultimately not used in period events. Retained by Porsche, the frame was sold to Baur in 1978. Following a brief spell in Switzerland during the early 2000s, it was then acquired by American Carl Thompson. He had the car built to full running order by specialists Gunnar Racing. In addition to the original and unmolested frame, the completed car features around 95% original components. In 2004, chassis 917-037 was sold to Freisinger Motorsport, who entered the car in the 2006 Le Mans Classic for Stephane Ortelli. The car then returned to the United States where it was repainted in Martini colours and campaigned at select events. Early in 2017, it was brought back to Europe once more and joined a Monaco-based Porsche collection.
