Restored '75 Carrera Heavily Optioned

Updated 5/12/2013: This was incorrectly listed as a 1974. Change to 1975 and updated writeup below to match.

Posted 5/11/2013: Last offered in 2010 this yellow 1975 Carrera has since seen quite a bit of restoration work, reputed to have cost 45k EUR. The owner has corrected many things about this Carrera since the last time it was on the market. Buyers should take into consideration that this Carrera has a replacement 911/83 engine fitted.

If the reported options were original spec this is an very well equipped Carrera with limited-slip differential (LSD), sunroof, Becker Mexico, 7J and 8J Fuchs, and extended hub steering wheel. Strangely it is currently missing the driver's side mirror.  Missing Carrera badge on the rear, though it was possible to order badge delete (option M598). The 1975 model year never came with a ducktail originally and this likely originally came with just a plain decklid. A number of other details could be corrected by someone wanting a completely original car.

Interior may be fitted with original blue-black midnight carpets (they appear a bit too blue), original seat leather, however the door panels have been replaced with black vinyl instead of the midnight blue. Speakers were never installed in the doors for 1975. Interior isn't quite up to the presentation of the rest of that Carrera.

If you are in the market this Carrera looks to be worth checking out. Additional photos should be considered as the ones published have been heavily touched up making analyzing the details difficult.
