Classic Motorsports Car Catcher: Neglected 911

It’s no secret: Air-cooled Porsche 911s have seen prices climb over the past few years. Today Beverly Hills Car Club offers you a 1969 911 Targa for $16,750. Why so cheap? it appears that someone plastered on a wide body kit along with some other more modern touches both inside and out. So do you think this one can be saved?

Of course it can be saved. And why not leave the wide body. I think it's cool. But whats the state of the mechanicals.

They will all be saved. They are just like the Austin Healey or other old brit cars that even a rusty old shell will be brought back and saved.

As a aircooled 911 owner I think it is great that they are all getting saved, and not just restored to concours status, but still being made into cool cars with different touches throughout. I do wish parts weren't following the trend and getting so stupid expensive. Truth be told, parting them out may be where the most money is, 2.7 motors going for $4500, 3.0's going for $6-8k in need of rebuild, 3.2 going for $12k+ with no non history. Certain parts are extremely crazy.

Is it weird that I like the steel wheels with hubcaps? You don't ever see those on a 911.

Nope, not weird at all.

@rustyvw- I'm actually tired of the Fuchs, mostly because everyone else has them now.
