How many 1974 911's are still registered?

Recommended Posts

Guys,

Over the last couple of years I've been trying to find out how many 1974 911's are still registered in Oz. The reason for this is that I own a 1974 911s and I know that in 1974 there was only 25x 911s' Australian delivered! I am sure that there would not be too many still registered and  driving around today!  An interesting fact I came across was that in 1974 Porsche's total 911 production world wide in all configurations being the 911, 911s, Targa, Carrera & Turbo was only 11,773 units!

My 74 will hopefully be registered in the few weeks, but it was US delivered.

I had one! Sold it 4yrs ago, but I believe it’s still registered. Original colour was ‘bitter chocolate’, but someone before me painted it white. Wish I still had it

I have one, its actually 1974 build but MY75. It is still classified as a 74. Its a base model and according to Porsche Australia it is a 911T. 

Being a T, it has no sunroof manual crank windows, Mexico Blue and very rare under dash factory air conditioning. Sometime in the 70's steel narrow body RS flares were added and the rest was updated to look like an SC.

I bet most of those 25 are still on the road somewhere.  911 deaths are rarer than most cars - death by exit backwards off the road being the most common I think.  Another cause of death for 74s was at the hands of 80s/90s butchers 'updating' them and subsequently rendering them worthless.

LHD 74s are sought after as smog-exempt in california and other states if you want to stuff a big engine in the rear.
