Thought I'd do the right thing and buy a membership I've got my 68 911L matching numbered coupe project for sale at $90k. Might seem steep but there is a LOT included. It's currently on carsales here https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-911-1968/SSE-AD-5352979/?Cr=15 I really don't know the best way to approach this, the car could be a full resto candidate or a Group S racecar or hotrod - buyer can decide. Currently offering up everything in one fell swoop on a trailer, but I'm happy to talk about a sale of just the matching chassis/engine/gearbox if you've got your own trailer or other plans, but I won't separate off the other stuff until these items are sold. I do need some cash for house renovations, but I might consider a partial swap on a registered 944 or 968 (wife demands any garage replacement is registered and driving ) I've got a .PDF file to email with chassis/engine details and photos to genuine enquiries. 1968 911L USA delivered LHD (SWB). Originally Ossi Blue, but currently in 6/10 Viper Green. Very little rust - previous owner had a new floor put in and some other rust work done plus average 2pac paint. Import approval (email from FORS) and no asbestos issues... (It’s been in Australia over 20 years and I think was registered in Victoria once before) Matching number magnesium engine (one of the first) and 901 gearbox with the very rare ZF LSD. Extra 2.0 litre engine and 901 gearbox for building something "fun". Complete extra set of SWB hanging panels (hood, bumpers, front fenders, and rear lid). Pretty much enough to completely backdate a later car or repair a forward-dated car. • Spare front and rear lights/lenses Tilta single axle trailer - current NSW registered to August 2018, new lights, tyres and winch, and completely roadworthy. AGI made (Sydney) CAMS spec bolt-in roll cage with paperwork. What does it need to finish? Not 100% sure as I received the car completely disassembled and everything in boxes. But no reason to think it's not all there... (Caveat emptor) Cost to finish on top of purchase? You'd need to decide on the direction and specification, I'd say $20-50k and you'd recover a lot of this cost if you were happy to sell off the spare parts you don't want or need if you don't take it racing. • Choose an engine to rebuild (I was going to go with original spec for the correct engine and Group S spec for the spare 2.0) • Choose a gearbox to rebuild (I was going to shelve original with ZF LSD and build spare box with it's current AFMSX ratio. Decide on keeping current paint or go back to metal and original color. (I was going to leave the current green for a track car, but I'd look at going back to original Ossi Blau for a hotrod/partial resto) I know pricing is difficult, but I’m pretty much offering up everything one would need to dive balls- deep into an easy restoration with lots of options and a heap of spares to either use or sell off to defray costs – you could almost build up another early 911 if you’re sitting on another SWB rolling chassis. Lots of stuff already done https://www.typ901.org/forum/forum/t...6-my-swb-racer Asking $90,000 for everything as is, where is (Car on registered trailer and spares in Port Macquarie, matching and spare engines in Brisbane).

What are peoples thoughts on early Porsches in Australia and the global market? While good genuine original Aust Delivered cars command a premium here, I can't help but to wonder about good genuine US cars that may have made it here some years ago - before going nuts - being sold back to the US....? Many will have been converted to RHD...many will have had ridiculous "updates"....but it seems to me like the right US car here could well be cheaper than it would over there! No doubt their market is HUGE - there must be many more buyers/collectors at the tope end able to pay the big bikkies. Are there many examples of this happening? I did see Autohaus sold a 930 to the US.... What are your thoughts?
Hi Guys, I posted a while back about my 911, too give you a brief background, Its a 1977 911 which was later updated with a 993 Turbo S body and much quicker engine (3.2L, not sure what model it was from), and I imported it from America.. I have no intention of selling it however at the moment it is LHD and due to some rust underneath the car it is going to need to have the 'frontcut of the chassis' replaced (from the nose back to the front of the windscreen, and considering I'm going to that extent, is it worth buying a RHD dash from a 993 and converting it to RHD while Im in the process, or should I just leave it LHD as a conversion could affect the balance and other performance/handling of the car??? Any educated opinions would be much appreciated. Cheers.
