    Here are a couple more cars that the restorer has been doing work on. Porsche used to have a far more adventurous colour pallette. When did everyone become so dull and want nothing but black, silver, grey etc? laugh

    Re: 911E restoration

    Congratulations on the choice to return the car to Signal Yellow.  It is, by far, my personal favorite color for Porsche cars.  I've owned 5 cars in Signal Yellow and the last 4 were done as paint-to-sample new cars.

    Re: 911E restoration

    ISUK : wonderful project. Signal Yellow (7210)  is a marvelous color. What is your plan with regards to the project  , full. factory spec restore or some period correct "modifications"?  A 911/83 engine would be a nice modification and reversible .  Is it  a matching number car?  

    I drove almost 50,000 Kms with the 72 2.4 S (Targa) I used to own. Those are great cars, reliable, light and nimble. Just they were all prone to rust  (only from 1975 Porsche introduced the rust-proof bodies which went together with the galvanizing process).  I wish you will drive it and enjoy it when the restore is complete, they hate being garage queensindecision

    Re: 911E restoration

    m4ever,

    The car is currently being returned to factory spec. The only modification I'm doing at this stage is the addition of the stainless steel rear apron (muffler skirt) which was available as option code 427 when the car was built.

    As part of the restoration process more advanced rust prevention treatments have been applied than would have been the case when the factory built the car so hopefully it will resist rust somewhat better second time around. I will drive it so don't worry on that score. My Dinos get driven enthusiastically shall we say smiley so the 911 will be no different kiss


    Re: 911E restoration

    Isuk

    thank you, will follow this thread with great interest. The 911E is a quite rare F model and more so in Signal Yellow. I would recommend to have the period Recaro`s installed (if not present) . If you plan to drive the car those are much more comfortable and suited for sporty driving. kiss

    Re: 911E restoration

    Whoopsy:

    Well, the Targa were well known to be more leaky than a open water tap, so the rust is not really a shocker. One of the reasons Porsche discontinued that model a long time ago and replacing it with a different configuration Targa all together.

    But seriously Ian, it seems you have the restoration bug and just can't stop restoring cars :)

     

     

    That post helped me recover from my prior expectations!  Thanks Whoopsy.

    I was waiting to see an awesome Targa restoration, but considering all other variables plus having driven Leawood911's Targa which he dumped off so fast that I felt some remorse for having been a Targa fan (and possibly responsible for having encouraged the purchase) where is the just shoot me icon?

    I still have a great picture on film (for those who remember that technology) which makes it look like a cabriolet.

    Give me a couple of days.

    Latest progress pics. Apologies once again that the quality of image they send me isn't the best.

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: 911E restoration

    Today's progress pic. It's back on it's wheels and not far away from having the engine and gearbox re-installed. It's going to the trim shop next week.

    Re: 911E restoration

    The stance looks a little high, is it supposed to sit like that? Also can't wait to see that paint on the sunlight. 


    Re: 911E restoration

    Probably due to the weight of  engine and transmission being missing. 

    Looks good!  Well worth the investment of money and time.

    Re: 911E restoration

    Yes, there is no weight from the engine and gearbox to compress the rear suspension. There is also no glass (apart from the side windows), interior trim/seats or fuel in the car which all add considerable weight as well. Once they are all added the stance will alter considerably.


    Re: 911E restoration

    Superb progress Iain - many thanks for the update...kiss

    Re: 911E restoration

    Gorgeous.   I am considering a similar project with an sc.  How are these projects priced and what range will your project run?


    Re: 911E restoration

    There is no hard and fast rule with a restoration project like this as it will depend on how good the car you buy is to start with and then how much work it requires or you want to do. The best thing I can suggest is to do a lot of research using forums with active boards on the model you are considering and find out who the trusted restorers are or if doing a lot of work yourself who the best suppliers of parts etc are.

     


    Re: 911E restoration

    Beautiful! Beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing. You make me wish I had kept some of my old cars and had them restored.
