Car is SOLD

'73 2.0, Fuchs, appearance group. Clean CA non-op title that's a year out of date. Supposedly matching # engine but there's no COA. It's been repainted so maybe that isn't important one way or the other.

Storage unit find that I bought with just a quick once over. When I got it home and took a closer look, it turns out to be REALLLLY nice. Too nice for anything I'd want to do so right back on the market it goes.

This is an interesting opportunity for someone willing to do a bit of work to clean and assemble this car.

As always, there's "the good" and a little of "the bad". Let's start with the good.
- Olympic Blue. Repainted in the original color. A pretty good paint job and the car does look great. Panels are all really straight. There are some flaws that I tried to capture in the pics. Assemble it and it'd be a top-level driver.

The hell hole looks untouched with no signs of rust in the battery area
Trunk and frunk areas and lids are really clean
It has replacement (late) doors that have been cut for speakers
Fuchs. Three in decent shape, one has a small (repairable) gouge

Stuff that I'd say needs attention:
- poorly repaired jack posts
- rusted solid seat hinges
- likely some rust on the rear floor but the tar is still there so I can't say for sure. A quick check doesn't show any rot or "soft spots".

The engine turns over freely, as does the side shifter transmission. That said, it's been sitting a while so...

There are 10+ bins with multiple sets of parts:
- duplicates and triplicates of things like suspension, steering, heater/fresh air systems
- many NOS, "still have the Porsche part # sticker on them" parts, mostly rubber seals
- Many (most?) replated hardware components

I'll start with a photo dump of the chassis and a few other things and update this thread as I get more pics. If you're interested in a particular area, let me know and I can get you more details.

Interesting trades considered:
- I'm looking for a 981 Cayman (the 914 + cash?)
- I love cool Porsche wheels (Ronals, Group 4, Fuchs 5-lug 8 and 9")
- I'm a tool whore
- Racer Benz needs an LS (1, 2 or 3)

PM me if you're a trader.
Thanks for looking.
