1960 Porsche RS 60 at 2009 Amelia Island Concours

This gorgeous 1960 Porsche RS 60 was being displayed by Philip & Diane Bagley of North Palm Beach Florida in the 4 cam Porsche class at this years Amelia Island Concours.

Porsche factory records show that only 22 RS 60’s were produced and that chassis #718-061 was delivered on October 6, 1960 to Don Berzin of Pennsylvania.  The car was sold by Bill (Murpf) Mayberry, who was the chief mechanic for Bob Holbert and Roger Penske.  This car is believed to be one of Bob Holbert’s cars, which was simply brokered by Mayberry.  Mayberry sold the car to Herb Wetanson, a famous restaurateur and racer.  Jerry McCarthy prepared the car for racing and campaigned it for Wetanson in the ’60’s.  Wetanson owned the car for over 40 years before selling it to the Bagley’s.
