Counterpoint here: 73RS is a better car than 74 Carrera, so your example doesn't equate as, unlike in this specific case, there's no ownership improvement.

T'is only more valuable if / when you sell it, or if you're looking for attaboyz from the concours/collector crowd. Otherwise. the updated improvements increase the driving enjoyment. Agree it is good idea to have original parts on hand for backdate conversion potential, but not for driving.

FWIW -- while I totally understand the collector interest in early 70's 911s (like DUH! ;-) I do not undersand early turbo interest because they are not good performers at all versus later versions. But ah well, hard to battle with emotional responses when it comes to collectors. Fascination with certain muscle cars = case in point. ;-)

for me is not importend the value of this Car.
I like the early Turbos and think the best will be to bring it back to Stock
with all original Parts. I dont know how long it takes but i am sure it will bring a lot of fun.

My Plan is a bare metall restoration.

So i am open for any Help at this Forum to get the best result.

Thanks
Steve

1975 930

Still looking for a Engine.
I pay top $$$$$ for the right one.

I get the Car home and after a quick overview iwas suprised that somebody has it convert. to a sunroof car with a SWB ROOF from a early 911.
Otherwise it is complete and has the original suspention and swaybar on it.
The Engine runs great but the Breaks are from a 1977 911S
I am out of town in NY and will post Pics when i am back at Tuesday.
Also i got a brand new nos passenger rear quarter and as well a brand new nos passenger door in Hershey from Mike.
As well i got two original early correct Sport Seats for it.

But need more Information or Pictures from the Interior and the Trunk of an early 930 Turbo.

Thanks
Steve

I assume you checked your serial number and that the car is a factory 930?

Two things stand out for me;
- You already have a 79 Turbo.. that being the case
- and you are planning on a full bare metal full restoration anyway, then yes I would take the car back to stock.

Primarily because they're are very few 75 Turbos around.. the car is probably a European car as they did not import the early Turbos until 76 and they were known as "Turbo Carrera" in the us.

Most did not have a sunroof.. and I'm not surprised to here that one from a SWB was grafted on.. it amazing what some of these cars have gone through over the years. We had a very nice Lapis Blue widebody at one time.. non turbo, built on a converted long hood chassis. We drove it a lot and it sure was fast.. for whatever reason we were going over the car and re-checked the vin only to find it was a 73RS!! This was at a time when they were just beginning to crack the $100k mark.. needles to say it was sold, and I understand that it was shipped to the factory for a full resto.. I have no idea where it is now.

Anyway back to your find...

- that car should also have a single mirror on it,
- and all 75, 76, & 77 Turbos had the small brakes you describe as 1977911s brakes
- if it was Copper Brown met, it probably had either Cork leather or a combo of that and maybe plaid inserts

Good luck with the project.. and update us with pics.

1975 930

My Serial # is a correct 1975 Turbo # 9305700XX

I am also confirm that the Interior can be cork, because they painted the backseats from beige to black. So it will be cooper brown with beige.

Also i believe the first once has the big black or chrom mirror on the Driverside like the 75 Carrera, the Breakes must be the same like the F Modell S Brakes and Carrera Calibers. Otherwise i found some Information that this Cars has the 917 Breakes. But i guess they are at the 3.3 from 1978 - 79.

I will post Pics next Week from my 1979 new Paint / Projekt and from the 75.

Sorry for the Delay but some times Things happen.

Just a quick update.

After a long therm search i get the Parts together. Only a few are missing but hope to get them as well.

I put the Car now in a Storage to look for a metall shop who can do the Work on the Chassis

Also found on the Way to clear the History of the Car the original Enginecase at the third owner who change the Engine and build the Car as a 3.3 Turbo back in 1987.

I was to late for the Engine, so may be some one other have one for sale.

To me, why go back with original size engine if it's not numbers matching? Lot of work that at the end if the day, you'd have to tell buyer it's been converted and reconverted back.

After a 2 Years search it is now its a Matching No car. and produced at 11/1974 !!!!

I am sure at the end of the Day ( in 3-4 Years ;-)) ) it will be worth the work.

Greetings to Berlin and thanks for the link.

its very hard to get the parts together.

My 79 is now finished. From expected 2 weeks are made 2 Years. But now i am happy with the result. Its the same colour as my 75 outside.

Maybe someone have NOS Turbo parts for sale so please keep me updated.
I will bring the 77 also back to sstock one time and then it will be great to have the parts in storage.
