For Sale: 1974 Porsche 911 in Naples, Florida

Vehicle Description

This is a mostly-original, Time-Capsule 1974 911 coupe in very rare and desirable Salmon Metallic with 44k ORIGINAL miles! The car is matching numbers. All original; down to the original Blaupunkt radio & Hirschmann antenna. The entire interior is original with exception of the front seat covers being recently professionally recovered (by Porsche interior expert). All the carpet is 100% original (74-75 year-only carpet that was made from special polyester nylon that is irreplaceable today as no one makes it anymore). The headliner is original with some stains near the edges. The dash is excellent with only one crack in the usual place. All the glass is original including front windshield (Sigla, West Germany). Even the door rubbers/seals are the original solid, non-tube seals. Original paint in all door jambs, engine, compartment, front trunk. The 2-stage clearcoat paint sticker, VIN sticker, paint tag are all present. It had one quality repaint many years ago. As Porsche experts will affirm, the 2-stage metallic paint cars from the 60s and 70s paint didn't last longer than a few years due to the very poor clearcoat from the factory. Luckily this paint job was done to a high quality back in the day and only on the skin of the car (not in any jambs, or any overspray, etc.). All gaps are factory perfect. Door shut like a vault. Original orange bar hood badge in excellent original shape. The car comes with the original owners manual but no maintenance booklet. Optional fog lights and Fuchs. ZERO rust. Never any accidents. Mechanically the car runs and drives fabulous. Engine pulls very strong, no smoke on acceleration, shifts like butter. Brakes perfect and straight. The car had a recent service including oil &filter change, belt, plug wires, etc. Early G-model 2.7 cars (74-75) with this low of mileage and in such original state are more and more rare these days. So many have been molested or turned into track cars. These early 74's did not have emission controls or thermal reactors that the later notorious 2.7 cars had. Therefore, these were excellent engines. More and more discerning collectors are realizing these Narrow-body 74'-75' midyears with chrome package in desirable colors, low mileage, and A+ condition are as desirable as the earlier brethren (longhoods). Yes, they have to check all the boxes to be up on the list, but if it does, the car sets an excellent investment for the avid collector. If this car were made only a year earlier with the same condition, options, etc- it would be valued 2-3x as much. Hence why excellent original midyears are a solid investment for upside value and enjoyment as the earlier siblings. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have.
