Yeah not sure how I feel. I’ve never owned one with the safety graphics or whatever they are called

Maybe the winner is that Billionaire guy that has The White Collection.
This would be a rare white car to add to it.

This is really weird to me. I have old 356 and 911 buyers guides that say stay away from a 74 or other mid years. So air cooled cars became valuable and now the 74 is a hot car. Same with the 356 B. Years ago it was the least loved 356. Now $90,000 will get you a nice one.

Bruce Anderson poisoned the minds of the whole world against the 2.7l engines. And since he used to write the buyer’s guides for Excellence...

74 was more of a longhood than a middie.

911/83 MFI motor euro carreras are premium.

US carrera are a fancied up 911S. Value very impacted by color.....

This isn't a "real" safety stripes car. If it was, it wouldn't have had a hood logo or holes for a logo

Its stated in the article that the safety stripes are mentioned on the original build sheet and that one owner had decided to remove them and I imagine drilled the hood at that time. They put the stripes back during one of the subsequent owners

Funny enough, that hood gap where the hood is raised on the corner edges is how they often left the factory. You can often spot this in period 1970 photos of the assembly line and cars in the delivery yard behind Werk 1.

For $168K, shouldn't the hood be aligned ?

That is interesting. I tried google searches for period 911 pictures but couldn’t find any.

My 77 has a slight raised edge also and I have seen others similar to this. Never knew exactly what caused this but I thought that this gap could be caused by the cables during long term use of battery tenders. Or some cramming oversized **** into the frunk and forcing the hood shut.

I never considered the possibility that the cars left the factory like this. Any pics?

17k miles is a unicorn.
Value approaches infinity as miles approach zero.
Nothing new here

It differs car to car but yes, usually a slight mismatch was there. From the 1974 test.....
