Seen higher asking prices around. Thats not the bid, thats simply and offer to sell at that price, it has nothing at all to do with the value of the goods.

Yeah, but it's not an "S" - it's a bastard "T", isn't it?

Pretty high for a bastard, but there was a recent thread(s) on an original low-mile '72T that sold on eBay for $40k. As the buyer was local I was able to confirm the legitimacy of the transaction. I am also aware of a couple of original S cars selling in the $90s. These were private transactions that were never publicly advertised. Pano/Early S Reg/eBay are not by any means the last word on actual sales prices of these cars. Well-connected PCA members often have no need to ever list cars they decide to sell.

It says "original 5 speed gearbox" - didn't all 72 Ts ship with a 4-speed? Mine did, though mine's a ROW.

Mine is an original 5 speed. I believe most were actually delivered with the 5 speed option.

$30K is what "original" early cars are going for these days. I might take $30K for mine (as in New York minute).

This one is a little bastardized with the 3.0 but it is a nice looking car. My bet is that it will trade for much less but we'll just have to see. I hope does go for $30+.

Regarding the 4 speed / 5 speed issue, I have never seen a 4 speed 911 other than turbos and of course race cars with turbo boxes. I am not sure about 65s and 66s but my buddy has a 67 and it is a 5 speed. I have aways assumed all 911s were 5 speed.

This statment just kills me, "been restored to better than original". What a stupid statement, especially when the original engine is gone.

Yeah, I'm sure it came from the Factory without door pockets.

I've been to this place (European Collectiibles) and I will say they usually sell very fine merch. (usually with mathcing #'s and Kardex)

That said, why produce the Kardex on this one when the engine obviously doesn't match?

And I'm NOT putting anyone down who likes to hot rod their 911 - esp. when you consider the age of these cars and the racing that occured with many of the original engines!

BTW - how do you get a Kardex?

Nice car. Are those really "Fuchs deep dish offset early S" wheels? they appear to be very similar to my stock 6x15's, which I didn't think were deep dish or S.

Also, there does not appear to be leather on the steering wheel.

PS. I am not saying this to attempt to detract from the price of the car; I hope the value of mine increases. I am really curious about the differences in wheels.

Engine decals are gone - repaint? If so, originality certainly doesn't support the price.

And now that the oil tank is back behind the rr wheel, what's the extra flap for?

I guess most of the original decals would be meaningless for the 3.0 engine.

Its definitely a repaint, and not the best out there- note they painted over the 2 bolts that secure the engine hood latch receiver to the body.

To me this car would be worth more with its original 2.4 MFI engine, rather than the stock US spec 3.0 CIS.

There was recently a 1970S for sale for $12K in fairly decent shape.

Fs: 1970 911s

$30K for a T is ridiculous unless it is mine......any takers? Original engine AND door pockets....

$12K is an anomlay for an 'S'. I have seen several ORIGINAL and beautiful 'T's go for $30K. The car in this thread is not a car like those.

On the 'S' front, there have been documented sales of cars between $75K and $125K for Esses in the same condition as the $30K 'T's. If you can find a very nice, rust free early 'S' for less than $30K, let me know; I'll buy it.
