NOS green primer panels

I have recently acquired some SWB quarter panels, inner fenders, fenders, latch panel, inner and outer rockers and a few other bits. They are in green primer and stickers are Porsche original and say made in Western Germany. Is there more value with these than a new panel?

There is always value is New Old Stock parts... that said, body panels at a time were hard to come by, but now Porsche's Classic division and companies like Dansk are making panels again so you can pretty much rebuild an entire car. Add to the fact that all the body panels have to be worked and painted you would never know it once it is installed... Then again, new "replica" parts are not always as good as NOS parts so someone doing a high end restoration may pay a premium for those panels as rust repair ain't cheap!!

I agree, I have used replacement oem panels in the past but I am assuming the older ones might be better quality....

The answer is yes, if you're patient. Green metal can command a premium over new metal, but you have to wait for the right guy who is willing to pay.
