I had rust on a '91 C2 Targa at the bottom left side of the windshield. It was around $1k to have a shop fix it. If you can't do bodywork, it is pretty pricey.

It could be a pretty fun project but the dollars in will not be recovered if you try to sell it later. Finding a mechanic who can care and feed it might be a bit of a challenge. I had a great mechanic for my 930 and he moved so even if you have the guy now, you might not have him later. I would guess that there is a lot of custom plumbing going on there as already mentioned.

If you are like the rest of us, you will get the bug and want to have a 911 that actually has the correct motor. An 80'3 911SC or Carrera with some miles on it can be had for $15-$25k and should not cost any more to care and feed. The '84-'89 3.2 Carrera's are probably the most reliable, care free 911's ever built.

If you plan to correct the '74, you will have at least $15-$20k in the car. It would be a good platfom to build a race car out of.

It is a pretty car though.

Good luck,

Mark
