Hi Adam

You are a lucky man! Look at all the eye candy on that trailer!

If I don't get the 72 roller on BaT, I'd be keen to talk about your 72.

Cheers

Jono

'72's are pretty cool. I've had mine for 25 years. When the engine is idling and there's no other outside noise, I can faintly hear the oil gurgling in the tank. Kind of cool, but other 72 owners I've talked to don't hear it. Maybe it's because I have one of the quieter exhausts, but definitely different.

FWIW, I just sold my wide body 1970T project, 3.0 engine, 915 gear box and some of the misc items for $32,750. My asking price was $35,000. Both seller and buyer are very happy. Don't under estimate the price of project car. At the end of the day it's about supply and demand. Demand is increasing while supply is finite, perhaps dwindling. I'm sure in five years we'll look back at my sale and other project sales and kick ourselves for not keeping or buying them.

Remember that the potential pool of buyers is increasing as well as us "yuppies" hit our mid 50s and have greater free cash flow because the kids are out of college, the house is paid off and we have more time on our hands.

Lucky you. I'll be in my early 60s when my first finishes. I'll be 68 when the one currently in diapers get out.

I think you undersold your car, but it's gone and you're happy. That's what counts.

I did. I’ve only been married a decade. I was a grasshopper until 30. Never could understand being an ant.

You all started to late. I was a grandpa at 40 and retired at 52. Plenty of time left to mess about with the cars. This auction is starting to make me feel real good about my 73.5 roller project. Mine has the paint and interior done and has a power plant. Got to up the insurance. Only have it at about 15,000 thru Hagerty now.

Sold for $24,000. It is nice to see that 1972 911s are in demand even without an engine or transmission or interior or paint.

Me too. Especially when I'm outside the car. I think a 72 is the best year but I am completely biased. I specifically sought one out when I was looking to buy 15 years ago.

72 only Benefits:
oil door and better weight distribution
last year of silver trim (horn grills, lights, etc.)
longhood, cleaner lines and no impact bumpers
most powerful longhood engine
love it

I just don't get it. I had a guy over the other day to look at buying my zero rust, running and driving non-matching number 70S (still fitted with an MFI S motor) and the best I could get out of him was $40K. I should put my car on BaT.

Looks like a nice 911. I would’ve laughed at that offer.

When a person is the only one in the room bidding on a car, they bid low.
Put it on BAT and the same guy will bid much higher.
Looks like a very nice car.
