No affiliation etc... claims to be a 1969 911 Coupe Chassis.
Just spotted on WI Craigslist.
Watch in case a scam!

Yes, rockers and longitudinals are gone on passenger at least.

Funny, the speed bumps and curbs were very selective on the gearbox numbers on this particular car. I's say $20K in rust repair at least - one of the rear torsion areas looks a little crunched. At least they painted the fan...the non-paying bidder should consider himself lucky.

So letís say someone bought one of these project cars.

Where would be a good spot to buy all the misc interior pieces, like gauges, switches, interior trim parts, trim, etc..

eBay is a definite no as eBay sellers clearly donít seem to have any interest in selling anything. They seem to ask utterly insane prices like $700 for a clock, $500 for a light switch, $500 for an ash tray, and so forth.

Who is that someone, you?

Best place is here. There are a lot of people who bought, hoarded, and otherwise parted many, many cars on here. Lots of stuff out there. Many people will be sympathetic to your plight on here as they know how fast money goes on a project.

The best place is the Early 911 S Registry forums. 2nd best is eBay. Followed by these forums. But get used to the prices. The long hood game isn't for the faint of heart!

The look of a modern furrari/gambella kit car and the feel of an old 912, best of both worlds.

Better snatch this one up before Adam or Itchy gets ahold of it:

I have to agree that Pelican is better than eBay

Another hoard of Porsche’s being parted out
https://denver.craigslist.org/cto/d/huge-porsche-car-and-parts/6693043465.html
Maybe the odd bargain to be found by a lucky bidder?

1966 911 coupe red
1972 911 powder blue
1969 912 purple sold
1970 911S metallic blue
1970 911E sunroof white
1964 911 coupe silver
1973 911E sunroof black
1973 911S targa green
1967 911S SCCA TRANS AM CAR
1970 911S sunroof coupe
1973 911E sunroof coupe with sportomatic
1965 911 sunroof coupe

Really 150 Porsche cars plus parts being sold?
Makes my finds seem like pennies on the dollar!

I tried to read back a few pages to gauge the market for long hoods, but it seems most of the ads posted were major projects and <10k without motors.

Purchased a 71T earlier in the year with non matching numbers. The motor is a 2.7 and is currently being rebuilt. I am at the point where I need to decide to keep the CIS pistons/Cams/FI and just drive the car, or go with RS P/Cs, E cams, PMO carbs, and might as well get the car painted with maybe some fiberglass bumpers. There is no rust but the paint job is not original and 5/10 driver quality.

I know projects like these are money pits and I am leaning toward putting the car back together with minimal outlay, get the stock parts back on the motor, and drive it around a bit and just sell it.
It is hard to find the range of a longhood in either scenario.

I'm in a similar position with my 72. Do I go whole hog and spend big bucks for a beauty that has next to no ROI, or do I spend less to get a ratty driver. On the fence, but I think I'll never get my money back either way. I'm starting to like ratty drivers!

They sold my old 66 SWB 912 for $14kish. I sold it to a local guy for $2k apologizing for the state of the rusty underside.

When it appeared on the block, the H4s had been swapped for sugar scoops, the Nardi wheel had been swapped for very worn stock, nice chrome wheels had been swapped for some hanging Ďit has rollersí type wheels etc etc.

Funny, someone local to me is just trying to flip a very similar car to that Targa (though not that one)

It was advertised about three weeks ago for either $10 or $12k and was gone in 24hrs. Itís now up again for $18.5k after a bath and a tickle in the engine bay...

SMH - Is there really anything of value left on something in this condition? Maybe the glass?
