So engine is not original as you mentioned.

The obvious things to note are -
Incorrect seats
Incorrect headlights
Incorrect decklid
Incorrect door panels

I think that's the correct side view mirror (large durant mirror)

However all this is easily changed if you wanted to.

You really need to check for rust, check-
Floorboards
Pedal area
Front suspension area
Rear parcel
Rear seat bottoms

-pretty much the whole bottom of the car needs to be checked for rust. Rust Repair gets expensive (ask me how I know)

Also check the bottom corners of the windshield and rear glass.

I think that the 1968 front suspension is an odd combination of parts since they were transitioning to the 1969 suspension and longer wheelbase.

Car does photograph well- looks good but should be checked out.

The 912 engines are pretty reliable but parts can be expensive.
I have been out of the market for a while but in my opinion $35k seems like a lot for a non matching engine 912. You can look at 911SCs for that kind of money. Car looks good- just lower it a little bit if you get it

Thank you for such a detailed reply.. Perfect!

The owner seemed to think the engine was a more powerful upgrade, so thank you for clarifying that.

He claims there's no rust on the underside or usual areas.. Of course I'll check that myself... I own a 1972 Datsun 240z, so I know a bit about the expense and hassle of rust repair :P

What would this car go for typically over in the US?
