Great color combo. Looks original inside but the rear fenders have been widened and the rear bumper et's are updated to the uglier bigger units that the 1974 didn't come with. it makes me wonder why and what else has changed. Obviously the engine mods are extreme. What mods are not reversible? You now have a radiator, where and how is it plumbed etc.
the engine is worthless if you ask me but I'm sure it has some value, not as much as 911 though. I'd say you have a $7500 car and some work and cost to bring it back. It's probably a fine driver, but it's not a 911 till it has a flat 6 air cooled engine. I'm sure it sounds fine with the flat 4.
The car needs to have the 6 back eventually so make sure it is reversible unless you get it cheep. Dint overlook the color combo though. It does look like a good car. I'd be a buyer fir the right price and I'm sure others would be too. Check it out good. Where are water hoses routed and what was cut.
Good luck. Keep us posted.

Keep in mind that the engine while serviceable is a compromise in this application. I'm sure it needed engine work which would have been costlier to do than this engine. Compromise.
Great looking un-original body car. There is a story somewhere. Look deeper. How's the title look?

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
