Thread: 1973 Carrera RS for Sale

  1. #1

    Thumbs up 1973 Carrera RS for Sale

    Iím listing the car on behalf of a family friend as he knows me to be a guy thatís into cars Ė I sold an Alfa of his last year. Iím not a Porsche specialist so please excuse any ignorance or omissions on my part. The owner is a wealthy individual who has enjoyed the car for approximately 15 years, and is ready to move on to something else. He does not participate in shows, clubs, forums, etc. and has no interest in dealing with the auction circuit. He says he was the first person to register the car, and has used as occasional weekend cruiser. No known racing history.

    Youíll see the undercarriage is extremely clean and rust free, the engine compartment also very nice with the original matching numbers engine. Interior is pristine Ė no cracks in dash or visible wear that I saw, with the exception that the headliner could use a scrub. Iím not sure if itís original paint or not; it has been touched up for sure in a few spots, and there is spider cracking in the finish if you look closely. Iíve tried to indicate this in photos. Owner says that no major rebuilds have been done to his knowledge or during his ownership, other than regular maintenance by Rennwerke in Elmsford, NY

    Might I suggest that some one with no history on this site trying to sell a $300K car reach out to an RS expert. It will help you with the sale and credibility.

    the RS book lists 19 cars being delivered to the USA, of which 16 were M491' s two including this one M472 and one M471
    only 1 M491 (0785 which went to Al Holbert) and the M471 (1406) were also delivered to "UD"
    also according to the RS book it does carry code 256 as an option which is one i am not familiar with and cant find on any of my options lists. Hard to tell if it is a typo (possible) or not
    I am also intrigued about what appear to be two speaker grills on the rear parcel shelf. I don't recall having seen those on any early car???
    also interestingly it has the becker radio option - the second most expensive option listed for RS's (to airconditioning which was the most expensive)

    Hi Mike,

    As usual Hugh is on it and he has confirmed what I know about the three road going RS cars brought legally into the US. I am pretty certian at least one and maybe all three came in through Holbert's dealership, but I have never made 100 % certainty of that.

    Regardless we do know this is one of the three that came in, how I have no idea, but cool none the less. One of our own here owns one of the other ones, 1406.

    Thanks for listing the RS here Mike. Not often that unknown RS cars come to market in this manner. It looks like a nice, original car from the photos. Yeah the Mexico radio is very neat to see still in the car. I agree probably a typo in the book or build sheet and should be 258, not 256.
