You are bidding on a great 1973 Porsche 911T Targa with an exceptional color combination, Signal Yellow on Black Leatherette!
This car is one of the first 1973 911s in the US. It has the 2.4 MFI engine which is more valuable and desirable than the later 73.5 CIS injection. The car has been in Louisville for the majority of its life. I purchased it from a good friend.
The car has some great options from the factory such as Comfort Equipment, Option Group G03, & Upgraded Stabilizer Bars. Please refer to the C of A provided in the photos.
I started a driver quality restoration on the car just over a year ago. I had the car professionally disassembled, the glass removed, sanded down and freshly painted to its original rare color, Signal Yellow. I used BASF Glasurit base/clear which is the same paint used at the Porsche factory.
Currently I have other cars under restoration which is causing delays with this car getting finished thus the reason for listing the car in its incomplete condition. My intent with this listing is to sell this car for a fair market value based off being 90% complete allowing another enthusiast to complete the car. An individual who can finish the car themselves may be able to finish the car and have less than market value in the car which would offer a great equity position in this appreciating asset.
The car is not a number matching car as it did not have its original engine when I purchased it. The original engine had a cracked case that was sent off for repair 15+ years ago. The case was not repairable so it was discarded. This was before the boom when the cases were considered worthless.
The engine provided with the car is the correct 2.4 MFI engine for the car with the correct 915 transmission. The engine is removed from the car due to the car being disassembled for paint. While the engine was out of the car I removed the engine tin, the fan housing, and other miscellaneous parts with the intent to repaint them to give the engine a fresh look. I have not yet completed this task due to time but have the parts for you.
When I received the car it didn’t have the original seats, shifter, radio, and was missing other misc. parts like the glove box, and door pockets. The interior door panels were also cut to accommodate speakers. After I purchased the car, I have replaced the seats with original seats that I recovered in original vinyl, I installed new old stock door panels, and have the correct shifter for the correct look.
The passenger seat will need the hinge repaired. It was missing the bar that connects the right and left hinge at the rear of the seat. I have the hinge in my shop in a box. The headrest will need a simple repair as well.
The carpet is in good condition. Is it perfect, no, however it is acceptable for a driver quality restoration.
The car has no rust. Zero. If you look at the pictures and reference the floor, the battery boxes, the front internal area of the trunk and the other areas prone to rust you will see that there is no rust on this car. It is extremely solid.
The Targa top fits and works but if it were me I would have it repaired. However with these cars, the top generally stays folded up and in the trunk as you enjoy them during great weather!
The car has been sitting for years and the brakes will also need to be serviced and the tires may need to be replaced. I am not sure if they have flat spots from sitting. We won’t know until the car is running and driving. Additionally, the car will need some odds and ends when finishing the car. Examples are miscellaneous rubber installed and trim depending on your attention to detail.
I am willing to ship worldwide if your funds are verifiable and clear the bank. I can also install the engine, transmission, and place the other miscellaneous parts in the car for shipping overseas.
If you have any other questions feel free to email.
Thanks for looking and Best of Luck!
