RS Backdate on 82SC

Hey Guys, I am trying to get feel for the market price for this back date which was just completed.

The complete car was gone thru with rebuild 3.0 engine and 915 trans. Numbers matching. Interior and glass off new color change.

Thanks in advance for your input!

Show pictures of the backdate relevant conversion bodywork and clarify what kind of parts were used. Glass? Steel? Hood latch moved? Hood modified? etc.

What makes this different from a nice SC? Why would anyone pay more?

$35K-38K

I agree with this. Anyone would not. But someone wanting to do this would. And they would probably pay $10k to $15K more if they wanted to spare themselves the mental and physical agony of opening their bank account to pay for it.

I dig it and think it's sweet. I would only change the trim color and remove the huge Porsche decaling on the back. I would make it a little more understated. It's sweet though.

That engine is too clean. You need to drive it more before considering selling.

Please elaborate. I'd love to hear how you lost 328 lbs.
Bumper change=?
RS interior=?
328 lbs is huge.

That's pretty substantial. I think there is a market for this. It looks well done. Lots of people will dig it and pay the money. I think it's worth more than a normal SC for sure. So much work went into it. Tens and tens of thousands I suspect. It would probably do very well on BaT with the right photographs, though I'm not on there anymore.

If one is buying an SC for itís loud pedal they will be disappointed. Get a 930 or 964 if more go is your thing.

As we have seen hundreds of times before, a good backdate does not need any more than a sweet 3.0 like this to make it fun. Not all (probably 60% or more) backdates do not include a hot motor.

The weight savings is going to go a long way in making this car quicker.

This example easily passes the cosmetic checklist for a sweet backdate. If someone wishes to hop it up it could easily be done - sell the existing engine and build your own.

It could as it stands bring strong money. A lot of work has been put in.

At this point it obviously doesn't matter if it's matching numbers or not. I would be interested to see what it brings at auction, but certainly it will bring more than a stock SC.

wow- lots of silly comments ??This car is very tastefully backdated and looks really good. If the drive train is fresh (as the photo suggest) it should bring somewhere between $60K and $80K IMHO.

Forgive me if the answer is obvious but how did you get the flag mirror to work? Drilled new holes or bodywork managed with respray??
I have a longhood frankenstein 72 and has sc doors but I wanted to have the cooler flag mirrors......if possible.

We sold our 1983 911 Backdate for $68k on BaT last fall. It did'nt have enough hot rod "bling" to get the emotions going. Similar cars with AC stripped off, FI stripped off, carbs and added Carrera stripes commanded $20k more.
