1968 Porsche Softwindow Targa
Seller tells us Offering a nice driving 1968 Softwindow Targa With original engine and Originally Light Ivory VIN 12870687 This car starts well, drives and steers well and brakes well. I’m told that there are a few thousand miles on the engine rebuild. No receipts to back this up but something better perhaps is the compression test done last week which shows #1 155 #2 160 #3 155 #4 155 Suspension seems up to the task and shows no sloppiness The car has been sitting for a few years but the older couple had the presence of mind to start it occasionally. Hence the car runs strongly and smoothly and only needed fluid changes and a tune up and a jet in one of the carbs. All this was done 50 miles ago. The car does not leak or smoke. Brakes did not work but with a few new brake lines they are now working fine. The 5 Speed Tranny shifts well. The photos and the video I tried to take in such a way that I show you all the flaws of the car. If there is a scratch or a bubble in the paint I tried to show it to you. I believe this car can be driven a good long time until you want to fully restore it. In my opinion this car is a good candidate for restoration. Rust is minimal and the only damage I we can find seems to be limited to the front of the trunk opening. I have taken closeups of this area. The paint has good shine but has some defects showing under the paint. You will see these in the photos. Dash is good. Let me know of any questions. I’ll try to answer them. Sorry I got the car with no history or paperwork. It does have a clean CA title. It is also newly registered until Sept 2012. Showing 91,400 miles.
A very collectible car shown in lousy videos but decent photos.  Find it here on eBay with only 2 bids but just listed.
