Est. Range
Lot Number
Visually maintained, largely original
Gooding & Company
Auction House
Chassis no. 9110210226; Engine no. 6200605. White over red leatherette. 1991/158hp, 5-speed, Fuchs wheels, tinted glass, Becker Mexico radio, books, tool kit.

Evaluation: Bought new by the consignor’s father and delivered to Mexico City. Moved to California in 2005 and received a repaint and interior refurbishment. The 15,951 miles showing are represented as actual. Small crack in one of the signal lights and a crack at the bottom of one of the rear bumperettes. The engine bay, chassis and suspension show oxidation and dirt but no cause for alarm, although the exhaust looks ancient. Wear and scratches around the roll hoop, and some of the gold plating on the “targa” badge is chipping off. A few paint chips around panel edges but nothing serious. Very clean interior. This is an impressively but not immaculately preserved 911 with known history and remarkably low mileage. It’s perfectly good as it is, and it would almost be a shame to restore it.

Bottom Line: The second-to-last lot of the auction, this car got one bid extension at the 1:40 mark but otherwise there was no excitement here. It’s a better car than the final high bid. It was also a no-sale at $80,000 through RM’s Online Only Driving Into Summer sale last year, and that number really should have bought the car, especially given this lowball offer.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
