Cool 1968 911 Sportomatic value

Hello,
I am new to the Porshche field and forum, been mostly working with older Jeeps and MGB's.
I have a chance to purchase this original 1 owner 911.
I do not know the miles and it has not run in 5 years or so.

From the pictures what is the value as is?

Thank You.

That's a 68 911 normal, not a 67. I personally wouldn't pay over $10k for it. There's a LOT of rust.

I have not seen it personally yet. Not sportomatic? I was going by the badge on the rear.
I was unable to see a clutch pedal so figured it was correct.

Thanks

It’s a sporto. . It’s just not a 67.

Got ya, Thanks

I can have it for $1K

Not sure what to do with it, I've always wanted a 911 and now have the chance to get one.

Sell it as is to someone who might restore it or fix it enough to enjoy it myself.

I'm pretty handy and would be able to do most the work required to get it back on the road myself.

Just the carbs on the car are worth $1000. The sporto parts as a complete kit with gearbox and actuators, etc are worth another $3-4k. That stuff is getting rare and people with original cars need service parts.

Oh, and if the wood isn't all cracked and bad, that steering wheel is a $500-800 core for restoration.

I could go on...

Knew it was a steal. Not sure what to do with it yet though. I would hate to just get it on the road if it would be better suited for a full restore to someone else.
Thanks for the replies.

My Wife kind of agreed not to part it out. We will see how long that lasts though.

Carl -- that's a LOT of rust in those pics -- suspect that just repairing/replacing the rusted out parts to make it road-safe would be a 10x investment over purchase price. Then you'd need to start tackling the sleeping mechanical issues that caused to to sit for 5 years. Note that the comments on value all tie to parting it out, not necessarily getting it running.

That said, if you're planning on doing your own work and are up for a challenge, this could be a (BIG) rewarding project.

I am a "you can't save them all" guy. I'm guessing the rust on that car is terminal. It's $25k plus to do it right for a professional. If you can cut and well, you can do it for pennies on the dollar of that number.

If it were me, and I wanted a complete car, I would start looking for a cheap 912 roller. They are out there pretty regularly without a ton of rust. There will be some and you'll still need paint, but you could transplant your whole new rusty car onto another chassis. A 68 Sporto is a cool car, but it might not be worth saving it other than in spirit. Vins die sometimes.

I have not had a chance to look at the car in person yet. My Wife bought it on a handshake deal.
At this time it is the only way I can have a 911 so might be stuck dealing with it. I can weld and enjoy that kink of work.

Question: What is the value of this car restored? Not Concours quality as that is out of my price range. I think i can handle a nice running resto.

A 1968 911 2.0 liter Sportomatic just sold at Gooding Auction. Estimate was $140 - 180K. Car received a three year restoration and sold for $80K with no reserve. I did not see the car, but it appeared to be a high quality restoration.

In the example above the owner probably spent well over $80k on the restoration. Don’t be that guy. Best bet is to sell as-is or part out

Nope, do not have that kind of $$$ to throw at it. However I'm a school teacher and have a lot of time to work on it. I think I could get it to a driver within a few years. I have connections with a my school body shop. Free labor.

Wow congrats! You should document this in video. There would be a ton of interested parties watching, you might even be able to fund some of the metal work this way. The $1000.00 classic Porsche! :-)

That would be fun, I'm a little nervous about taking on a Porsche. That's quite an upgrade from CJ7's and MGB's. Thanks!

They are called cookie cutters. Stock for early 70s cars. A common upgrade by early car owners with vehicles that originally were delivered on steel wheels.

Expect the front control arm mounts, and rear swing arm mounts are going to be a rusty structural mess. We only see 20% of this car’s rust in your pictures. Longitudinal will be gone. It’s gonna be $5,000 in sheet metal, even with free labor. But if you’ve got the motivation go for it.
