Sold for $742,500 at 2013 Gooding and Company - Pebble Beach.
This Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RSR was delivered to Jacksonville, Florida, and into the care of Peter Gregg's Brumos Porsche dealership before being sold on March 25th, 1974 to avid racer George Dickinson, with the intent on sending it to Al Holbert Racing. It first raced in the 1974 Trans Am Series where it was driven by Holbert to victory at Lime Rock. A year later, wearing white with blue stripes, it appeared at the 24 Hours fo Daytona, where it was entered by Bill Webbe in partnership with Harry Theodoracopoulos, and finished 5th overall. A month later, Dickinson entered the car at the 12 Hours of Sebring, where Webbe and Theodoracopoulos finished 5th overall. The driving duties for the remainder of the year were entrusted to Hurley Haywood.

At some point in 1975, Brumos serviced the car and the original motor was replaced. By April, the car was prepared and driven by Haywood to 3rd place in the first heat, and 2nd place in the second heat at Road Atlanta. Peter Gregg joined Haywood for the Riverside 6 Hours where it finished 3rd overall. Another 3rd place was earned by Haywood at Mid-Ohio, followed by a victory at Mosport in June. Next on the schedule was the Paul Revere 6 Hours at Daytona, where Haywood finished 2nd overall. Another 2nd place by Haywood in the first heat at Mid-America followed but failed to complete the second. The remainder of the season included a 3rd overall at the Talladega 6 Hours, and 5th overall at the Daytona Finale. Haywood and 9056 finished the 1975 season 2nd in the IMSA Camel GT Championship.

For the 1976 season, the car received a new livery of dark blue with red and yellow graphics. Holbert and Claude Ballot-Lena drove it at the 24 Hours of Daytona to 2nd place. A month later, Holbert partnered with Michael Keyser for the Sebring 12 Hours where it finished 1st overall.

The car was later sold to Tom Frank of California who refinished its exterior in white and campaigned it during the 1976 IMSA Camel GT season, earned five top-15 finishes in eight races.

In 1977, it received green graphics. Frank and Carl Shafer drove the car at the 24 Hours of Daytona but failed to finish after 178 laps. At the 12 Hours of Sebring, the pair of drivers had better success with a 7th overall finish. It achieved 6th overall (and 1st in class) at Sears Point, followed by a 17th place finish at Laguna Seca.

The RSR entered the 1978 season wearing new livery, this time finished in white and green, emblazoned with Huffaker's sponsorship. Its first race of the season, and its fourth consecutive entry, was at the 24 Hours of Daytona, where Frank and Bob Bergstrom piloting the car to 15th overall. It then made its fourth appearance at the 12 Hours of Sebring but was unable to finish the race due to gearbox issues. Frank campaigned 9056 in five more races that year.

In 1979, the car was sold to Joe Huffaker, of Alex's Porsche House. In 1984, it was sold to Bill Freeman of San Diego, who had it restored to its victorious 1976 12 Hours of Sebring specification. In 1986, it was sold to Bill Strakosch before Nick Soprano purchased it in 1989.

The previous owner acquired it in 2004 and retained it until 2013. While in his care, the car was returned to the Al Holbert-winning livery of 1976. The dashboard contains toggle switches for nighttime running lamps, the doors retain lamps to illuminate the roundels, and an antenna remains – all believed to be from its Daytona and Sebring heritage. It has never been restored, rather preserved.

This RSR is powered by a 2,993cc SOHC flat 6-cylinder engine fitted with Bosch Mechanical fuel injection and backed by a five-speed manual gearbox. There are ventilated disc brakes and an independent suspension with double-wishbones, coil-over shock absorbers, and anti-roll bars.
