Finished in Signal Red over a black leatherette interior, this 1973.5 Porsche 911T Targa represents the final production run of the original long-hood 911 body style and featured a newly improved Bosch CIS fuel injection system. It comes equipped with a removable roof panel, Fuchs alloy wheels, and a 2.4-liter flat-six engine with upgraded stainless-steel heat exchangers, Turbo valve covers, and an airbox pop-off valve. This 911T was acquired by the seller from the prior owner’s estate in Chicago and was driven back to Pennsylvania in 2018 where it is currently being offered for auction.
This 911T is said to have been stripped to bare metal and refinished in the current shade of Signal Red from its original Light Yellow color many years ago. It features aluminum rocker moldings, chrome door handles and headlight rings, a polished driver’s side mirror, black rubber bumper strips, a fender-mounted antenna, a brushed silver Targa band, a removable black roof panel, a heated glass rear window, and 15” Fuchs alloy wheels with colored Porsche crest center caps and Vredestein Sprint Classic tires (2020). The Targa top was restored by Dan Petchel along with the installation of a new windshield seal. The seller indicates some paint bubbles are present on the driver’s door and there is no evidence of rust or collision repairs. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.
The cabin is trimmed in black leatherette upholstery. Accessories include front bucket seats with headrests, a four-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel, aluminum door sill moldings, manual window cranks, a heater, a locking glovebox, a quartz clock, folding rear seatbacks, and a vintage Bowman Astrosonix AM/FM radio. The seller notes a crack is present on the dashboard, the driver’s seat bottom was rebuilt and reupholstered, and new black carpeting was sourced from Autobahn Interiors. The seller reports all gauges and accessories to be fully functional apart from the tachometer which operates erratically.
An air-cooled and fuel-injected 2.4-liter flat-six engine delivers power to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed manual gearbox. The seller notes the engine has been upgraded with stainless-steel heat exchangers, Turbo lower valve covers, and an airbox pop-off valve. Service carried out by the current owner includes cleaning and sealing of the gas tank, a new fuel pump and fuel filter, a new warmup regulator, a new brake master cylinder, all new brake hoses, stainless-steel rear brake lines, new brake pads and rotors, a rebuilt pedal cluster, new shifter bushings, rear sway bar bushings, front struts, ball joints, replacement of the steering rack, and a front-end alignment. The engine oil was also changed along with a transmission fluid flush, tune-up, and valve adjustment.
This sale will include a toolkit, a spare tire, some documentation, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “The Targa top was restored by Targa Dan Petchel. It runs & drives as it should, it’s a nice driver. Good oil pressure, a leak-down test is provided in the gallery.”
