Fantasy Junction, known for their vintage race cars and collector automobiles, is offering off the very last Bob Akin 962 (IMSA). The 962 has been one of the most celebrated Porsche race cars of all time thanks to its success in international Endurance Sports Car racing. This specific example was the very last car that famous racer Bob Akin races in the IMSA series.
Finished in a red and black color scheme with a Coca-Cola/Yokohama/Paradyne sponsor livery, this race car will be recognized by any motorsport enthusiast. Akin started his racing career in 1957 and ended it in 1987 with this very car. And this car’s importance doesn’t stop there, because while Akin did race a lot, this was the first of his team car’s that he raced himself.
Even after multiple races, this 962 remains in almost perfect condition. There’s minimal wear, no damage to the race car, and looks like it was just created to race. After Akin retired, he eventually sold the car in 1991, and it changed hands four times and went under multiple restorations, keeping it in perfect condition. In fact, it went under a complete nut and bolt check, which required services that ended up totaling $19,122.72 according to the invoices.
