    Lol! "All metal car no rust" Nice door gaps!

    From the Ebay ad:

    "We are selling our 1971 Porsche 911t. we rescued nearly 7 years ago. This is an all metal/no rust car. Paint is recent. Original color is sapphire blue. This is a numbers matching car and comes with POA certification, 7 years of receipts and clean title. I have most of the small trim bits needed to finish car--but this is a 90% complete driver. It is registered and insured. I just finished installing the seats, headliner, carpet and mats, visors, rear parcel shelf, and seat belts. New shifter assembly is installed, but bushing adjustment/replacement might be needed behind shift linkage. I have a few items that are period correct, but not original--(the original items were too far gone)--Steering wheel, seats, radio, rear deck lid and shifter linkage.
    I have included a lot of photos, but have more if needed. Please text me with more questions or to arrange a meeting to see/drive the car. It is for sale locally and will end ad if sold. If you see it--its still for sale."

    The car has been offered on the PCA classifieds for months. Same price the whole time, but limited pictures. The larger pictures on eBay certainly tell a story.

    My father and I went to check this car out in person since we're just across the bridge in Philly. His asking price is a straight pipe dream. The paint is very rough, a "World of Color" special as the seller put it, much worse in person. From a quick inspection, the pans looked mostly rust free, but judging by some of the other falsehoods, I would be wary. Engine smoked like a chimney and it was impossible to find 2nd gear. The guy is not particularly knowledgeable about Porsches and seems to think because it's a longhood, it's an instant hit. I've joked with a local buddy that he should call and offer him $25k and see if he takes it. It'll need a complete proper paint job and some mechanical love to get to the 90% he describes.

    I wonder if they used more than a gallon of filler or if they managed to keep it at a gallon.

    probably used more and ran out of cash to spend on windshield trim and removal of the engine lid lock prior to paint. That does take at least 90 seconds.

    I'm sure it has tremendous potential, to use some famous BHCC terminology.

    This car looks vaguely familiar to me. Could someone share the sellers name? Perhaps just the first name?????
