I saw this 1965 Porsche 911 on my RSS feed this morning and noticed that the auction was about to finish, so I tracked it to the end. It sold on Ebay just a few minutes ago.
It’s a matching numbers car – which appears to be more important than oxygen these days – and it has a 2 litre boxer engine with Solex carbs. It comes with rust and some small accident damage as well as years of accumulated dust and dirt. The engine is not running but does turn freely.
Have a look at the pics below and then have a think about what this car might be worth. The answer is below the pictures.
The 911 is a very nice car and these early ones have a lot of character.
On the downside, they’re not very fast and they have a tendency to end up facing the wrong way on corners.
They’re not rare by collector car standards and yet the prices have gone through the roof in the last 12 months. I was looking at one of a similar vintage here in Australia just over a year ago and it sold in the high 30’s. And that car presented in much better condition than this one. The price rise has been phenomenal, which prompts me to ask – are they going over the top?
This 911 will likely get a huge $$$ restoration and yet it still sold on Ebay for…….
I took that screenshot with 25 minutes (or so) to go but I can tell you the price didn’t change from there.
$70K for a not-that-rare classic car that might end up having another $50-70K spent on it?
Are things getting a little bit crazy, or is it just me?
