When I purchased 1974 VIN 47402904078 recently, it came with a second rear trunk lid which I don't need.

As can be seen from the photos, it's painted and in very good condition. No rust, wrinkles, or dents. However, as can also be seen, a rib is pulled away (i.e. separated) from the skin.

It's available for pickup in San Bruno, CA (94066).

It can also be shipped at the buyer's expense.

$175 + shipping OBO.

Thanks for looking,
Bob

I’ve been Watching this one as I’m in need of one except I’m not sure how I feel about the skins pulling away from the rib. What would cause that and what could be done to make it right?

Sorry, Wes, I don’t know the answer to your question. I do have a knowledgeable and well known / respected (but also quite busy) resource I’ll ask.

In the mean time, maybe someone will chime in ...

Thanks I wouldn’t mind having one fixed properly depending, and your close enough I could pick it up. I have a very good looking one but I know it has a problem so.

I’ve been told by a knowledgeable restorer (who did a full, bare metal restoration on my 1967 911S) that the best way to address the pulled rib is with a urethane automotive body panel adhesive. He mentioned the brand ‘SEM’, and related that this method is preferred by automakers for panel reattachment, and is stronger than other ways, such as spot welding.

My guess is the rib didn’t “pull away”, it and the hood where pushed down but the hood flexed back into position, while the rib was permanently bent. So welding or bonding the hood to the rib will probably cause the hood to have a pretty large depression. So if I’m right, the proper way to fix would be either the push the rib back ito position or to cut the bent piece of rib out and weld in a piece with the proper curvature. Currently, the metal on the hood may even be a bit high if it was stretched and oil canned a bit.
But this is just a guess since I haven’t seen the hood in person, just similar issues on other hoods and lids.


One way our cars get large dents in the body panels is because in the 60’s, 70’s, etc, American cars had such heavy gauge body panels, sitting or even standing on the car wasn’t an issue. Sitting on a Porsche panel and especially a 914 (thinner gauge than 911’s) resulted in panel damage. Don’t let the pretty girls pose on your Porsche.

"My guess is the rib didn’t “pull away” '

Thanks for your input. Your guess about what happened and how to address it makes good sense. Unfortunately, I'm in North Carolina and the lid is still in San Bruno, so I've never seen it.

I probably should have referred to it as a "rib / skin separation".
