If you desired, for a paltry $1100 (over the price of the 1600 Super engine, which was already $260 over the cost of the 1600 N in a 2500-$3,000 car) the factory would put a GS tuned 4 cam engine in any car, be it Coupe, Cabriolet or Speedster. A pretty cool option, I think!
The first price list isn't marked as to where or when but the 1300 was still available so I'm guessing that at the latest it's 1955 or '56? The 2nd is from Auto Europe (Beverly Hills, CA), 1958.
@Panhandle Bob and @WNGD- Wouldn't it be great if it was still being used as it was meant to be? Unfortunately, the mileage shown is probably from new, with who knows how few since the restoration. A car doesn't clock much going from the garage to the transport, on the the show field, back to the transport and back to the garage. It's sacrilege, when you think about it- these cars really were meant to be driven.
Adjusted for inflation, I think it’s cheaper to get the GT-3RS version of the 911 over the standard Carrera.
”Paltry” $1100 would probably get you a VW sedan back then. Our 67 was $1750 fob.
