    Well, it seems that you've got a very interesting project in your garage. It could be expensive to restore this car but she definitely deserve it, from a financial point of view.
    You just need to decide if you want to follow that path.

    The engine seems to be from a late 1971 2.2 S so is not original, but of the correct type, anyhow.

    Man, a light yellow 1970 911S with a great backstory -- doesn't get much cooler than that.

    What would you need to determine the original engine number?
    And what would that information provide?
