Ever since the air-cooled 911 market exploded, places like Singer and GProgramm have emerged as the go-to restoration shops for someone looking to own the ultimate example. A new firm, LA Workshop 5001, is aiming to cement themselves as a serious contender in the 911 resto-mod arena, and these cars seem to make a great first impression.
Marlon Goldberg, owner of Workshop 5001, brought two of his completed projects over to Jay Leno's Garage to show off his shop's work. We've seen the Nardo Grey-colored narrow-body car before, but the 1974 blue hot-rod is something new.
The original 2.7-liter flat-six is gone, and in its place sits a bored-out 350-horsepower 3.8-liter engine from a 964. The interior is completely stripped out, save for a roll cage and two bucket seats. Goldberg is formerly of Singer, so all of the work is top-quality, as you'd expect.
Watch for yourself as Leno takes a tour through one of LA's newest air-cooled hyper-restorations.
