Feb. 29th 2012 – Auto of the day – Porsche’s – Auto #5
1973 Porsche 911T Targa
Finished in Burgundy Metallic with Black Leatherette Seats
This excellent example of the last year of the light weight, small bumper cars has lots, and lots going for it
Complete Engine Rebuild less than 1,000 miles ago with receipts, new starter and fuel pump since
Complete Transaxle Rebuild 1,000 miles ago with receipts
Completely restored factory Recaro Standard Seats
Completely Restored Targa Top
Brand new gas tank
Remarkably corrosion free car except for a couple of spots on the front pan.
Couple of surface rust spots around the rear window which is very common, and easily remedied, and a little work to the drivers door and you have a very satisfying ownership experience
All in all, a strong running and driving car that needs minor restoration with at least $15,000 in documented recent work
Value: $15,000 – 30,000
Comment: good little car, with much to like, cheapest way to get into Porsche’s.
