This thing is a real mismatch of fenders. The fronts are 1974 style vented and the rears are like turbo flares. (11") not real RSR wide body flares that match the front. Somone would spend major dollars on this car just to get it straightened out and then ??? to whatever level they want to take the car. It is truely amazing what the words RSR will do for the price of things to the uninformed. The fact that the body is a early S isn't really significant either since every important piece that makes an S worth it's value is gone.

Cheers,
David

Early cars can be confusing, especially ones like this that have been modified over the years. However, any 911 that is for sale for under $10k deserves some level of inspection - and especially any 911S at this price point.

I'll be the first to agree that I don't like the fenders. So for discussion, lets just take them off and replace with a currently available fiberglass ST version. Many people don't like the look of magnesium minilight racing wheels - so for sake of discussion, lets take those off and put on frosted RSR fuchs. Suddenly the car is looking ALOT different. The last set of mini wheels in 10x15 size sold on this board for $ 2500.00 for the pair - that covers the cost of buying fenders and sourcing some decent fuchs.

Given the above changes - you now have a modified 911S that based on the decscription needs part of the front pan repaired in the battery box area. Show me an early 911s at this price point that doesn't need a battery box repair. Now the cool factor comes in to play - the car already has lightweight door panels, delivered from the factory with big tach and big speedo, has smaller diameter steering wheel( which rumor has some poor sole just paid 1000 bucks for on another board ib Cali), front oil cooler, S alloy brakes, original non-sunroof car, solid floors and no structural rust issues aside from points mentioned above.

For someone that is looking for a modified car to have fun with, and who can't/doesn't want to spend $30k on an original 911S - IMO, this car has more positive aspects to it comapred to all the other 5k projects I have looked at over the years. Someone will be ripping around the race track next year for short money in this one.

10" minilites, small rs wheel, rollbar, tach, S vin are all pretty cool

Series900 in NH, is Damon, right? This could be a good project if someone could work the right deal with Damon to fix the front end. The rear flares should be easy enough to get rid of. It would take a lot of money, but that is nothing different from any other project car. It thinks it has potential at the current bid as long as its not bent.

Its already spent time on the celette - and everything is at factory spec according to the shop.It takes an hour to remove the front fenders and cut off the rear 1/4's above the wheels. In that configuration someone would have an RS replica or ST replica project started at 5k. I haven't seen any projects at this price point that have this much potential. A few weeks ago a 911S sold for double this and it had weeds growing through the floors and needed both inner and outer rockers.

Battery box from he dealer is $150 and fenders from GT racing....?
Somewhere on this board was a front hood for $200. Whats the cost of Peter Z's outlaw seats these days??

It has potential. You could go the '73 RSR route for less money, but the minilites are too cool to sell off . Are they really 15x10s on the rear? Ive never seen those for sale

ST fenders ~$600
ST bumper ~$200
long hood ~$200
ST flares ~ $200
ST rear bumper ~ $300

Im kinda interested

Do you have a shot of the front trunk inner wheel well area on the drivers side? Is the A pillar or the shock tower area buckled at all?

The shop has said that the car is all within spec and has been checked on the cellette frame machine. With all the restoration work that he does - he is the best judge.

If Damon would do it, I'd seriously consider trading my 69E for this thing.

Word to the wise when dealing with Damon

WATCH YOUR WALLET!!!!!

I took an $8K hit on a soft window targa that I bought from him one year ago. Seems he forgot to mention the motor was cooked before loading it on the transporter.

Did he stand behind his product? Nahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! You'd think a guy in the business would be a little wiser before jamming an active enthusiast, but some guys just don't get it.

Be careful You have all been warned!
