The Crazy Craigslist Deal – 1976 911S
Today’s car comes from Indianapolis, home of the Indy 500, the world’s largest Christmas tree, and (perhaps) bargain-basement priced classic Porsche 911’s. It’s a limited edition 1976 911S selling for the price of a 996.
The author’s post on this 1976 911S doesn’t give us a lot. The author seems to know a lot about this specific Porsche yet doesn’t feel the need to post pictures. Or mileage. The car in the photo is the Gooding car mentioned below. It should also be noted that US emission standards wrecked havoc on the 1975 through 1977 models. Porsche solved the short-term problem of getting the cars to pass emissions in a manner that caused the engines to blow up in fewer than 75,000 miles. In other words, tread carefully with this car.
Here is the post:
This is a matching numbers Ferry Porsche Signature Edition Targa from 1976. Only 200 Signature Special Editions were made this year (100 coupes and 100 targas) and were the 1st 911’s of 1976.
The first 911 completely without chrome, special steering wheel with Ferry Porsche Signature.
This is in very nice condition 2-3 owner vehicle with the last owner owned it since 1987. Runs and drives great with documentation of ownership and servicing. No sign of any accidents. The gaps and seams are Porsche. Includes original tool kit and original owners manual. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a rare Porsche 911 that will continue to be a strong investment. The car is located in Salt Lake City Utah area but if needed I can pick you up from the airport and make this a very easy purchase. Do some research on these cars. Here are some links below with some SE’s that have sold. Gooding last January of 2017 put a concourse estimate of their car at 120-140K.
So, What’s This 1976 911s Worth?
Hagerty doesn’t have a value for this specific model. The Gooding car sold for $93,000. A clean title car with limited body damage should fetch a minimum of $35,000. It’s tough to find ANY air cooled Porsche 911 selling for less than that. Upside case is $50,000 – $60,000.
