Porsche 911 The Porsche 911 (and all it's trimlines) is a famous, distinctive and durable car has undergone continuous development since its arrival in 1964. The 911 was developed as a more powerful, larger, more comfortable replacement for the Porsche 356.

It appears I've struck gold

Default It appears I've struck gold

I'm a long time BMW guy and own a '72 2002 that I have fully restored to show quality. I've never owned a Porsche before and wasn't looking for one but ended up buying a '67 911 yesterday. It's been sitting behind my buddy's shop for a few weeks (he doesn't usually work on metrics) so I finally asked him what the deal was on this car, "It belongs to a retired guy who can't pay his bill quite yet so here it sits". I said "it's a clean car, you think he'd sell it?" "here's his number give a call". Nice old guy who's owned the car for 30 years. He told me the waste line to his house needs replacing and would consider selling the car. Being aware of the recent spike in classic German car values I feel safe throwing a number at him. "How about $20,000 and I'll pay your $1,800 bill at the shop too?" He jumped at it, "I'll be right down with the pink slip". I ran to the bank for a cashiers check and the deal was done and everyone's happy. My buddy with the shop had just tuned it and checked the entire car over. Rust free CA car, well maintained, low miles, complete and unmolested, paint good, body flawless, good brakes and tires, etc. Most of the interior needs to be re-done but the car is in amazingly good condition overall. We did the deal so fast that nobody checked value (including me). When I got home I looked up the Hagerty value and was shocked. I feel a little guilty but this is the kind of find we're all looking for, right?




Edit: the Hagerty average value for a 1967 911 2 door coupe is $69,000+. this car is a solid condition 3 and after further research is also one of only 200 for that year equipped with a factory sun roof.
