No Guard LSD? Not a cent over $35k.

Oh look what M2 just posted in another thread.



Word on the street is that he might just be interested in a car like yours.

Pay top dollar for it as well but you gotta grovel and be nice.

GLWS !

Do your homework. Go to BAT click on the box that includes your model. You will find prior sales here. Click on the more button to keep looking at additional sales. These are true/real numbers. You're not relying on opinions, it is facts from previous sales, or no sales.

car is kind of a bastard so doing homework is going to be tough. there are a number of guys here that are very versed on a wide range of cars so here i am with my valuation request. thanks for your suggestion though none the less.

I think a sorted pre emissions hot rod should do better than $35k. I bet you could get mid $40ís.

Car looks great. This is a tough question.

I would replace the rear bumper with a stock or better still a euro bumper.

Possibly add a P O R S C H E Stripe to the side.

Sell on BaT.

I think it should be worth minimally $50,000.

I would also consider reaching out to Paul @ AutoKennel
https://autokennel.com/

He does very well selling this type of car and is an expert of the market.

Here is a recent sale; https://autokennel.com/featured_vehicle/1974-porsche-911-rs-sport-purpose-coupe/.

That was a joke. I think he should ask $45k if he’s going to list it here. And it could get closer to Mac’s $50k number if listed on BaT and he gets a couple guys with wood for it.

It's been so serious around here I can't tell when anyone is joking.

BAT is a wild card. Like you said, couple of guys get wood and he could get $50k.
Put some Martini stripes on it and shoot for $80k.

I agree Stripes sell hot-rods on BaT...

The description sounds amazing. But then the pics leave a bit to be desired. The exterior is not looking so hot. I feel like a visual details would go a long long way to your final hammer drop.

If it were my car, I would outright copy Magnus Walker's SC, maybe not his color scheme (Or even maybe!)
I think even if you don't copy the color scheme, you absolutely need to throw on a baby IROC front and get the front and rear bumpers painted before you consider listing. The wheels don't match the outlaw vibe. I'd black them out. Your target audience likes blacked out wheels. You gotta kill that cheap ass mirror too. Vitaloni Toronado's are really cheap feeling and looking.

Put some better air cleaner covers on and maybe send some of the linkage out for plating.

You would pull 50+ with sexing up the exterior. I feel like 35 as it sits now.

Whenever you sort all this advice out Toby, and you finally take pics, get the right light angle. Take it from a fashion model (former), especially that first photo leaves something to be desired. The engine photos are good!

Classically restored fuchs, and chrome or painted headlamp rings will go a long way on this one

It’s too made for him, so the car is his thoughts, nice car, looks very nice, somethings can be reversed, if need be.....or new buyer loves it
It’s still very difficult to get top dollar or even near a good 75S, it’s a toy with no clear long term valve. I say $35,000, take it, problem is people have cars with a lot of add ons or upgrades and that’s ok, but it’s market appeal is reduced.

Without all the chrome I think this would be wasted effort. Some kid will like that it's all murdered out.

If you take it to BAT I agree with 75 911s. The side script and black hood could work out.
You could get both wraps from CarBone for around $300.00. It would really bring out the look that sells.

This is a well built car and would be a steal @ $35,000.

I do like 75 911S's ideas and assume this is exactly what a flipper such as BaT "super auctioneer" 911R would do to sell it for $100,000.

Yep. Mid 30's -mid 40's up and comers. Now on the flip side, I'm restoring a low miles original 77. I'm keeping it 100% original. I think both have their target audience.

Swap the rear bumper to euro to match the euro front...
