1974 Porsche 911 Non-Sunroof Coupe Rare Factory Color/Numbers Matching SoCal Example/California “Blue” Plate Full DriveTrain Rebuild/Bare Metal Repaint VIN # 714-410-0223 ENG# 6140261 (911/92) TRN# 7340353 Numbers Matching 55,200 Miles (on odometer) 2,000 Miles on Drivetrain Rebuild Emerald Green Metallic (249) on Midnight Leatherette 5-speed (915) manual transmission Clean and Clear California Title PCA Member Owned The 1974 model year was the last year that the standard 911 delivered to the U.S. was a world car. It did not receive the larger impact bumpers or smog equipment (air pump/thermal reactors) found on the following model year cars. This particular coupe was one of the very first “G-body” Porsche 911s delivered to the U.S as well as being specifically ordered for California. This example was built in July of 1973. It was delivered new on December 23rd, 1973 by a local Southern California Porsche dealer to Mr. Scott Allen of Oxnard, California. It was special ordered with the following factory options: Special order Emerald Green metallic paint California equipment Vent windows Stabilizer bars (front and rear) Manual antenna – left Front loudspeaker & noise suppression Light metal wheels pressurized (6x15 – ATS) Rectangular white fog lights/halogen Tinted glass all around Intermittent wipers Also included on the car are the rear window defroster and leather wrapped sport steering wheel. In 1985, Mr. Allen sold the car to Mr. & Mrs. Gomez of Oxnard, California. They kept the car in their family for 25-years before selling it to the current owner on June 3rd, 2010. Upon purchasing this 911, the current owner began going through the entire car. Mr. Gomez had repainted the car sometime in his ownership to a different metallic shade (see pics). However, the inside panels were still left in their original color. Furthermore, the car had been sitting for 15-years. A full repaint and mechanical rebuild were all in order. Mr. Gomez knew the original owner and believes the miles to be original with the exception of the odometer breaking sometime before going into storage. The goal of the current owner was to bring the car back to its stock original condition, make it a nice driver, and display it at the Rennsport Reunion IV timeline display in 2011. Highlights of the work done include: Gauges restored by North Hollywood Speedo (preserving their original ’73 style) Body stripped to bare metal and media blasted Rust repair performed with proper cutting out of metal and welding in new pieces New front suspension pan Refinish underside Body completely primered, sealed, and repainted factory original color New Carrera oil tank Full engine rebuild by TRE Motorsports and Conemac Precision Machine Inspect/clean/blast original pistons and cylinders Crankshaft end was built up/machined/re-profiled to factory specs/polished All modifications internally for improved reliability Updated chain tensioners Rebuild heads/new head studs (stud savers) Replaced rod, main, and intermediate bearings New valves (stainless intake) and Teflon guide seals Clubsport motor mounts New oil pan Machine flywheel/new clutch kit All glass and trim was cleaned and polished with some anodizing NOS rear panel “Porsche” reflector Turbo tie rod kit Bilstein shocks and struts New SSI heat exchangers and Dansk muffler Carrera front brake calipers and replaced wheel bearings Refinish wheels Early style alternator Replace shift shaft in tunnel and rod/linkage New fuel lines New oil lines and Carrera oil cooler Transmission removed, inspected, synchros replaced and then resealed Recover original dash and seats New door panels, headliner, and carpet Replaced fresh air control assembly Then, in May of 2013, the car was displayed at the prestigious Greystone Concours in Beverly Hills, California. Shortly after this event. The owner was rear-ended while sitting in traffic. Fortunately, he had Hagerty insurance, which allowed him to use his choice of shops (Axiom…the shop that did the body work initially) to repair it. We just had our local shop look over the car and they noted that it appeared that the car had gone through a significant restoration. Some small items that were addressed included: Repaired wiring for wipers and interior lights Flush brakes Check fuel system Chassis inspection New OEM size Vredestein tires (185/70-15) with new aluminum lug nuts This mid-year 911 is in very nice condition and I would classify as a high-level driver/PCA street wash and shine class. The paint is fresh and looks great with minimal signs of use. The glass is all original and in good condition. The chrome trim is original and has been polished. There is some expected minor wear signs on the glass trim. The door handles, rocker trim, and lights/lenses have all been replaced and look fresh. Both outside mirrors are new. The interior looks equally nice. The seats have no rips, tears, or cracks. The carpet, headliner, and door panels all are new. The original dash has also been recovered and has no cracks or warping. All the gauges work properly including the clock. The interior and exterior lights all work. The non-working aftermarket radio was removed and a delete plate was installed. This 911 drives really nice. It starts easily on the first try. The power feels surprisingly strong with great low end torque/pull. The steering is light and direct. It tracks nicely. The upgraded brakes are welcome addition as it has decent stopping power compared to the stock setup. This example would be ideal for vintage touring events and your local weekend cruising/showing. California registration is current and paid through January of 2018. This Porsche comes with extra keys, extensive records/receipts of recent work, Porsche COA, original owner’s manual, car cover, and space saver spare.
