Completed on 13 June 1967, this 911 S was factory-equipped with the optional Webasto heater, an outside rear-view mirror, a Blaupunkt Frankfurt radio with the speaker/antenna package, and fitted with Dunlop tires. Finished in Slate Gray over black, the Porsche was then delivered to Joan Ruggiero of Hollywood, California, on 18 August. The desirable short-wheelbase coupe passed through several West Coast owners, during which time it was converted to a race car, entering vintage and Porsche Club of America Club events. The interior and trim were removed, and a full roll-cage and safety fuel cell installed. Dale Thero of Denver, Colorado, bought the car in 1995, painted it Viper Green, and would race it in this form for more than 18 years, competing with Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing, PCA Club Racing, and autocrosses. 

In 2012, described as being very straight, the 911 was purchased by its current owner, who commissioned a complete restoration back to its original form by a local Porsche specialist. The rollbar was carefully removed, the fuel cell replaced with a correct gas tank, and a full new interior from Autos International was installed. Since many hard-to-find parts had been removed during its conversion, a 1967 912 donor car was acquired to obtain some of the trim, radio, and other critical detail components. All the instruments were rebuilt by North Hollywood Speedometer.
