Gooding & Co Auctions '74 Carrera

The black Italian delivery 1974 Carrera 2.7 MFI (chassis #911 460 0500) hammered sold at the Gooding & Co Amelia Island Auction for $215,000 USD plus 10% commission for a total of $236,500 USD (approximately €170,500).

This was a solid result for an honestly presented example with no major issues. Most of the minor issues can easily be corrected by replacing the incorrect Carrera script, sourcing correct Carrera style speedometer, fitting the correct white Italian front reflectors, and adding the few missing engine bay decals. Given the strength of the rest of the 911 market and those sold at the Amelia Island auction you can consider this well bought and still a relative bargain.

Other relevant 911s sold at Gooding & Co's 2014 Amelia Island auction (including commission):

  • 1973 RS Lightweight  $1.4 million
  • 1988 959  $1.1 million
  • 1973 911 S  $242,000
  • 1969 911 E  $137,500
That said, remember that auction results are rarely reproduced in private sales. This was quite a bit higher result  by almost 13%  than I expected the final result to be prior to the auction.
