Early 911 Advice ?

Hi folks,
I've read with interest some of the "newbie buying advice" threads here and on ddk-online, and am still in the same boat..
I'm trying to source a rhd pre '75 911.
It will not be a daily driver.
I've read Paul Frere's "Porsche 911 Story" book, and have read the last few Porsche Post and one of the "Porsche & 911 World" mags.

There seems to be a premium on the very early cars, but I cannot go later than 74 (mabye early 75 by the time I find one) for import to Ireland or the vrt kicks in bigtime.
I've seen ads for a couple of '74 cars at around the 11 to 12k mark .. is this the going rate with few owners and a good specialist service history ?

I do like the pre '73 styles as well, but the prices there seem to be higher.. Guess good ones are rare.

Anything in particular I should be looking for on a late '74 2.7 Lux ?
The '74 carrera's seem to be madly expensive and out of my league :((

I would say that the PCGB is prob' the best source of info on the historic models.....


I think most folk here are prob late 80's 911 at the earliest !

and most are 964/993/996 era's

You can get a 1972/1973 911T or S??? For £10-£12k, at least from what I've seen in the back of 911 and PW.

I think these are probably the coolest 911s ever, so good luck.

OK Folks,
Thought there wasn't much sign of the earlier cars in here, but worth asking anyway.

Thanks Greg.
I found those alright from googling.
There is some good info on the 356-911.com site.
