What would the Pelicans do?

Guys- I was thinking about taking on a project of a tribute to my favorite Porsche of all time- White 1974 RSR 3.0 - like Monte Shelton currently has for sale on E Bay-I realize that a proper donor car should be a '74 or '75 non sunroof coupe which I have located- it is a 2.7 that has steel 930 flares, boxed rockers & 18 " wheels which for the most part would not be used since I want the vented fenders, etc- while this sounds like a possible fit my dilemma is that for about $12,000 more I have found an '89 M491 but it is a Cabriolet so the question becomes do I stay true to the tribute or do I make the car that was never made?

Pros: 3.2 liter- 15 years newer- clean title- suspension & brakes- G50 trans & A/C
Cons: It's a Cabriolet

What say you?

Option 3 - buy a cheap SC for $7500 and build it for real, with Getty bodywork.

I'm not sure the SC is the right car to begin with all the work needed to get it started, but the cab is way off base and the 12k will go towards the costs.

Keep looking.
