68′ SWB Converted to LWB with 3.0SC engine

Exciting times for us here at Cavendish.  We have finally finished the 1968 Porsche 911 engine conversion for a client of ours.  Our client has owned the cars since the early nineties.  Back then he had the car converted to a long wheel base and fully resprayed.  He also acquired a 3.0 SC engine which was literally a box of bits! 

We were commissioned to re-build the engine, fit a front oil-cooler and re-wire the car to run on the later engine whilst maintaining the original instrument clocks and dash controls. We also modified and setup the suspension to improve handling and aesthetics. A challenging but fun project. Needless to say that both the client and ourselves [...]

CavendishPorscha Ltd are authorised agents for Evans Waterless Coolant. This revolutionary product is catching the attention of many Porsche enthusiasts, Porsche press and Specialists. So what is it?

Statistics published by manufacturers and motoring organisations confirm, that water is the root cause for 60% of engine breakdowns and 40% of catastrophic failures. Whilst internal damage goes mostly unnoticed in new engines, the cumulative effects of corrosion, cavitation and cyclic pressurisation become increasingly apparent over time. For decades engine designers and antifreeze formulators have persisted with water whilst endeavouring to overcome its intrinsic shortcomings.  In 1993, Jack [...]
