'74 RHD Yellow Carrera MFI Targa

This 1974 Carrera 2.7 MFI Targa with 106k miles and equipped with LSD and ducktail is recently available in the UK.

Description from the seller:

Light Yellow, Midnight Blue leatherette with Shetland inlays and twill headrests and side panels and 40% locking differential.

Supplied new in in August 1974 to Mr Norman Anstis (formerly of The Sailors Arms, Newquay who was famed for turning Newquay into a sea side nightlife hotspot and also a keen rally driver in the 1970s!) by AFN Ltd.

Immediately after the legendary 1973 Carrera RS finished production a series of Carreras were built for the European market that were equivalent to the M472 optioned 73 RS Touring models. This rare and desirabled Porsche was the G-series Carrera 2.7 MFI (aka Euro Carrera 2.7) which used the same 911/83 RS mechanically fuel injected (MFI) engine that produced 210 bhp. The major difference between these Carreras and the RS was that they were built with the “G-series” body and interior instead of the earlier long bonnet form. The weight of the G-Series Carrera MFI was also 1075 kg like the 1973 RS Touring cars. All 1974 Carrera MFI cars either came with a ducktail or tail delete, while 1975 and later Carrera MFI either came with the whale tail or tail delete.

Allegedly only 433 Targa models were built, destined only for Europe, the RHD versions would potentially have accounted for only 10% of this figure. The car we see here is chassis number 9114610158 and has undergone an extensive restoration. The car also benefits from having an engine rebuild at 98100 miles. The restoration included a total of £23,000 in parts/third party charges and a similar cost against the labour to strip and rebuild this fine example.

The car is supplied with its original service booklet, keys, MOT to December 2014, Original Porsche book packs, build file complete with all receipts and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

Offered for £74,995 (approx $125,000 USD).
