1974 Targa Project

Looking for a 1974 Carrera 2.7 MFI Targa project? This Italian delivered Targa has many of the parts necessary for restoration, except for some of the expensive engine parts needed to rebuild the engine. In the 1970s, Italian 911s were typically ordered from the factory with no options to save on the extremely high import taxes. Italian dealers would locally add anything expensive equipment like radios, ducktails, etc. for the new owner.

Description from the seller:

Welcome. You are bidding on a very special 1974 Porsche 911 European Carrera. When I first found this car some time ago I was planning on doing a restoration on it. However after much time sitting in my warehouse I have decided to sell the car. I felt that these 74 European targas where special; considering it was the only year of the ducktail 2.7 MFI 911/83 targas. I know people probably prefer a coupe, but since Porsche made less targas and with the price and respect that the Soft Window Targas are bringing, this car would be a great addition to ones collection. I have a clean title, Porsche COA and some past registration cards to this car. Please take a look at the pictures and read the description. I am happy to assist the buyers with out of state or overseas shipping.


Exterior: This car was originally India Red from the factory. It has received on repaint since. It has RSR rear flares, however included with this auction is a set of real steel RS flares. This car does have rust in the floor pan as seen in the pictures. I bought the car from Alabama and perhaps that is where the rust formed. This car has never been in an accident and has all of the original VIN tags in place.

Interior: This car still has its original interior. The interior like the exterior is in need of a restoration.

Engine/Transmission: This car has its original engine and transmission. The engine is the factory 911/83 engine (the same that was used in the 1973 Carrera RS). However I only have the engine block, the crank, pistons, heads and MFI are all missing.

Overall: This is an excellent chance to get into an early European Carrera project car. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. This car comes with many of the extras that I have accumulated when I was going to have the car restored.
