906 #134 began its World Championship racing career with Team Holland. Driven by Dutchmen Ben Pon and Gijis van Lennep, a Le Mans winner, the car finished 7th overall in the ADAC 1000 Kilometer Race at Nurburgring.
For the 1976 Le Mans Grand Prix d'Endurance, Ben Pon and Vick Elford finished 7th overall. The car was then sold to a succession of amateur teams in whose hands the car continued racing for many years. Subsequently, the car came to the United States for a complete restoration under the direction of Bruce Canepa. Since completion, the car remains an active competitor in many vintage racing events.
This car is powered by a six-cylinder engine capable of producing 235 horsepower and 200 foot-pounds of torque. It has a Porsche five-speed manual gearbox and an independent suspension in both the front and rear. It gets about six-miles to the gallon and rides on Dunlop wheels.
