Carlos Monteverde - 1969 Salzburg Porsche 917K

Carlos Monteverde – 1969 Salzburg Porsche 917K

This is a reproduction Porsche 917K of chassis 023. Known as chassis 5LT, this particular car was built by David Piper to sit alongside his green Porsche 917K (chassis 010) and was originally finished in the same green colour scheme.

This car was bought by Carlos Monteverde from David Piper at the same time that he acquired chassis number 023 from Julio Palmaz, and was repainted in the same colour scheme as chassis 023, allowing the replica to be run without risk to the original and to protect its value (the original chassis 023 won the 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans).

There are a few differences between the replica and the original, most notably the mirrors – chassis 5LT has them, 023 does not.
