    re-stamped correct engine

    At what fair and correct percentage should a re-stamped period correct engine de-valuate an otherwise correct and original Porsche 911 s pre-bumper ?
    Thank you.

    Here we go...


    You're going to get a variety of opinions arguably based on self-interest. For those owners who don't have their matching motor it's merely a bump in the road; no more than 10-15% hit. On the other hand buyers (who ultimately rule the roost in this debate) seem to believe it's a minimum of 30%... and climbing. And it's also affected by region. Yanks are much more wound up about this than Europeans.

    Can you post pics of the infraction? Always love to see a perp's artwork. And to perhaps discover what lies beneath the fraudulent attempt.

    Interesting 1st post. I doubt you will ever see the fraudulent artwork.

    The main problem is if the car which is in great condition actually worth considering , or should it be something to run away from.
    I am searching for an early 911

    Everything has a price.

    If you want a cheaper buy in, a car to drive, and you're less concerned about future appreciation then non-matching may be the way to go. Many folks have gone this way and hit the lottery later on when the matching engine case surfaced.

    And many are simply enjoying their car and couldn't care less what number is on their engine case. In this particular situation if you're that paranoid with having a fraudulent case plug $20k into the deal to change the case out.

    Frank,what would you change the case out to?
    Fraudulent case is one thing,a factory replacement case is another,there is only ever one original,who restamped it or is it a replacement no number case stamped.
    Over here in the uk we dont get to hung up about it,especialy if you have a racers mentality,the important part is buy the car on condition and how original you want it,there aint many factory original cars about for sale,it is always nice to have it all correct but not a deal breaker.
    With a early 911 there can be alot more to worry about than just a few engine numbers

    It would depend on the car and how it's driven; lots of variables.
    If it's a mag case, bone stock street car I would probably use same year/internal number. If some added hp I would go sand-cast alu.

    Again, it would take a very unusual owner who was so paranoid about a faked case number that they switched out the case. As a matter of fact... I can't even imagine it.
