    Factory blank case- effect on value?

    Hi. I'm looking for a Targa. Or a sunroof coupe. I haven't owned a 911 before, currently I have a 2002 targa from 1973 which I intend to keep. Just got back from doing a property inspection in it, I'm a self employed surveyor in Newcastle in UK. And use this car on dry days rather than my electric i3 I have been making offers on 911t and 911e's on, noticed a lot of cars aren't achieving reserve. I want a 911 for my own use, for summer drives. Perhaps to take over on ferry to Holland and into Europe once I have faith in reliability. Not planning now on resale, but at some point this will happen, unless it gets passed on to my son. I've also had an etype fhc since 1988, so I tend to hang onto these cars and just get nice and drivable and with a good finish. I don't know anything about how a factory blank case effects the market value- is the motor correct 911s spec? Also not sure how the title you describe would go down for export to UK?

    '. . . 1969 Porsche 911S targa 2.0 liter mechanically injected with factory Air Conditioning. This is probably the nicest looking targa I have ever seen due to the color combination. VIN number 119310238

    I have the Porsche issued "Certificate of Authenticity" which is posted here and I also have the Porsche factory Kartex (Kardex) as well. Both show this automobile leaving Stuttgart with factory Air Conditioning which makes this 911S even more rare.
    Car also left the factory with a passenger side view mirror which I did not put back on the car due to personal preference but is included with the sale and can easily be put back on.

    Car has been re-sprayed in its original color of Burgundy Red and the paint is beautiful.The targa top was nice but from sitting for so many years the material was brittle so along with the steering wheel was sent to Tony's for recovering as factory original.

    Interior is original with the exception of the carpets and the radio. Seats are not perfect but very nice and since they are original to the car I chose not to touch them. The dash has a small crack between the speaker grill and air vent but it is very nice otherwise and original. The coco mats have some wear but the carpet underneath is perfect. The door panels pockets are very nice .

    The car has factory A/C but I have not made it operational. All the equipment is in the "smugglers box" and the compressor is mounted.

    The transmission is factory original to the car and matches the COA and Kardex. The engine has no numbers on it but the date code of the case and heads (Oct of 1968 for heads and Sept of 68 for case) are correct for the cars production date January of 1969.Both case halves are stamped "799". Case casting is 901.101.101.2R, Cam Towers is 901.105.111.0R
    I asked an ex Porsche factory executive if it is possible that the engine could have been over looked for stamping and he says " no" so I will have to assume the engine was replaced at some point even though the date codes are very close to the cars production date of January 1969 per the Kardex and the PO has stated the engine was in the car since at least 1980 when it was bought from the original owners family. This car sat after the original owner passed away so if the engine was replaced I would assume it was done by a Porsche dealer via warranty early on in its life.

    Odometer shows 61,700 miles and is believed to be original to the car.

    When I bought this 911 it had webers on it but the original born with NFI was available which I secured. I took the Bosch pump to Gus at Pacific Fuel Injection and he serviced the pump which was in excellent shape. The carbs were removed as were the injector plugs from the heads and the original born with MFI was reinstalled on the engine.

    This is a super nice car. It had a little rust by one of the front control arm torsion bar mounts so I had the "horse shoe" replaced professionally.

    Car has 15 x 6 deep Fuchs with Michelin XWX tires but the tires are old . . .

    This car underwent an extensive, no cost spared restoration. Sold for $168,000

    Here was the seller's comment:

    "This is, was, my 911S. I can tell you it is an amazing car bought well below my restoration cost."
