Can I drive that baby-crib-blue 911?!?! It would go well with go-go boots and a feather boa!!!

Hopefully I'm wrong on that number. My estimate was based on the description suggesting the car had been hit six ways from Sunday....if it's actually in good order I agree I'm light on the sales figure.

I've also never seen the color. Totally agree it adds value to the car....personal preference clouding my judgement here. I hate yellows on 911's

Hit six ways from Sunday? It had a fender hit that didn't even cut the tire or scratch the Fuch but the owner replaced the whole fender anyway. And a pair of parking lot entrance tire to fender rubs that flexed the lip and may have cracked the paint. That's hit six ways? Your definition a beat up car is very different then mine.

I personally wouldn't care about the salvage title. It's not the type of car that it should matter to a buyer as long as there is no visible damage or poor repairs.
But I would not sell the 74 either.

And the color is perfect. I guess that makes me a go go boot wearing guy.
I'd have to borrow Rawknee's boots though.
Oh the stories his wardrobe could tell.

Ouch... That kinda hurts my feelings.

Ignore the numbers.

If you want a project, build the '74 into a sweet hot rod. No smog in CO or CA. The '86 in a rare color will command a real premium over a red/black/white, example and that buys a lot of sweet parts and body work.

If you want something to drive, clearly keep the '86. It's just the better car, and it's sorted, and the '74 will be easy to sell in that area (due to smog).

Fantastic dilemma, either way.

Well, there you go. Sell and then bank the dough for a Targa, and then sell the '86 when you get it back. Done, done.

You are pretty much missing the point here. There are so few '74s on the market at any given time, with demand probably at an all-time high, on Matt's car a salvage brand would mean nothing - or close to nothing.

I think it's hilarious that a branded Salvage classic car when there are so few of them around, and if inspected correctly (ie. California, where I lived for a major part of my life threw a Salvage brand on everything that was stolen, joyrided, or had the vin removed, or a million other reasons where the car had NO physical damage at all) and I got some pretty good cars. Salvage doesn't mean the same from state-to-state.

How many '74 911s on sale right now in the entire world, as I write this, in the shape that Matt's car is in? A handful? 10? Yeah, I would buy Matt's car - and Techweenie would probably agree with me.
Sal, you are correct on that.

Per the prior post you made, $35K feels a bit strong on the 86. I'd say $32. Otherwise I endorse your market commentary as spot on.

I'd try and keep both. Lower the seat in the 86 maybe?

But I really like weber carbs so would lean toward keeping 74.

If only it were a targa... I would drive a stock targa in an interesting color that had emissions requirements. But I've decided that it has too many compromises to keep it.

Two months ago my dad dropped off the 86. He decided he wants to buy it, and put down a deposit, as well as gave me a punch list. I ordered a bunch of stuff for a tune up, clutch job, and AC upgrade/repair. I haven't gotten to it yet, but have been driving the car regularly since we've had a pretty dry winter.

Fast forward to today and he's changed his mind. So I'm going to sell the car. I just put up a WTT ad here without much detail. Anyone reading this already knows a bit about me and about this car. So, if you've got a targa and you want a coupe, drop me a line. If I don't rehome it in a trade, I'll do all the service, detail it up really nicely and drop it on BaT in March or April.

WTT: My 1986 coupe for your targa

Thank you, sir. I too love it, but my targa fever is greater. Having sold the Boxster I am already jonesing for that top off experience. We've had a string of 60-70 degree days this winter and once you've gone topless, windows and sunroof open just isn't a replacement.

I agree completely. I pulled the hard top off the Scout last summer and installed a soft top in its place which stayed down all summer long. Honestly, on a beautiful 80 degree day, I think I prefer driving it over the Porsche.

To the original question, I would sell the 86. The 74 is more fun to drive, lighter , if you wanted to make the engine even more fun you will not be hog tied by the state. A good car to play with.
In an ideal world you really should buy a Targa, not instead of but in addition to the 74 Coupe.
And the 74 would be that nice hot rod car to play with and the Targa would be the tour car.
I understand the open car appeal, especially from some one who lives and drives in the mountains, so much of the view is blocked by the top of a closed car.
