Evaluation: Visually maintained, largely original | Represented with one owner from new and 11,562 actual miles. Clean and maintained engine bay. Small scratch on the mirror. Very good paint is claimed to be original, but the hood looks resprayed. New wheels and tires, but the originals are included. Interior is very good, with barely any wear on the seats. A remarkably well-kept car.
Bottom Line: It’s one thing to see a 930 or some other rare-spec 911 with this kind of pampering, but 1974–77 series 911s were for years the “cheap ones,” and most got used up years ago. This has to be one of the best in the country, original or otherwise. That goes most of the way toward explaining the stupefying price, but not quite. We’re talking more than twice what other excellent-condition 911s of this vintage often command, and well past Bonhams’s $80,000 high estimate.
