    What kills me about that auction is the people saying "just get it running and drive the snot out of it". Anyone hoping it's that simple has some harsh reality waiting for them. Beautiful color but that's a full restoration waiting to happen by any measure.
    +1 I was interested in this car and would take on the task of doing a full restoration. I even posted on BaT about how this isn't going to be as simple as getting the engine started and start driving it. Aside from the typical rusted areas, the closeup behind the front fender is one clue. Someone bidded at 55K, they can have it.

    Haha, best line of the whole post! It's up to $60k... makes me wonder my my 73.5 911t in vipergreen is worth on BAT, the houndstooth interior should ad some coin! Nice car, but it's starting to feel like a bubble

    $66k now, 3 hours to go.

    I compare this to the '72 T project I bought 11 months ago.


    • Plusses for the S - well, it's an S and not a T, and a rare and vibrant color.
    • Plusses for my T - external oil fill on a '72 is somewhat desirable, engine already rebuilt and running, no significant rust repair needed.



    • Minuses for my T - really nasty color change in the past, needed a full refresh or restoration other than the engine.
    • Minuses for the S - needs everything, including significant rust repair.


    I paid $37k for mine as a running car with a fresh engine and all rust repair done.

    I intend to drive mine regularly when complete, I suspect that will not be the case for this car in the future. I would have loved to have bought an S in an uncommon color, but for me as a car to drive, a T is a better buy.

    I didn't see the budget price but total mentioned was 7 yrs 3 months and some water leaks to deal with. Very impressive to say the least.

    Do you think the long hood market is starting to cool down? I have a 997 C2S and have been trying to located a decent longhood several years ago to enjoy but the market already took off and flippers took over. All of the ones that I've seen fully restored are over 100K. I'm from SD and CPR has some nice cars ready to go. I don't mind doing the garage build if the price is reasonable. 60K for this Lilac doesn't make sense to me.

    $104K

    Great color.. hope that was the reason it was bought. If "investment" was your goal you could be given the car for free and still be upside down if you did the car "right".....

    Hope it makes an appearance here off and on...

    Not just $104k, but the buyer is a dealer. Is he expecting to flip it? Seriously? I'm sorry, but this borders on BaT-Sh!t crazy to me.

    Maybe he already has a buyer for $300. We can probably count on one hand the Lilac 911S' out there and it's not just rare it is arguably the most desirable early 911 color. If that car is restored properly, someone will seriously pay up for it. It wasn't messed with by another "restorer" so that's a big plus and it's all there minus tools and an AC compressor. The wildcard in my eyes is not the body - anything on the body could be repaired/replaced - it's the motor or really the case. From the pics it looks like the elements have really affected it. Maybe the auction winner had the car PPI'd beforehand we don't know. That car will be stunning when finished. Color won on this auction.

    Arne,
    Don't forget the additional 5% of the first $100K in addition.
    BATsh*t, I like that.
