We're selling this beautiful '70 Targa on behalf of a local gentleman who has owned the car for the last two years. He had purchased it out of California with the intention of enjoying it along the Lake Michigan waterfront, but once he had the car he found little time to really get out and exercise it enough to justify paying for enclosed storage in the city. This is an interesting car for a number of reasons. First off, while it has the iconic long-hood look of the early cars, it's powered by a slightly later drivetrain, having been sourced from a '76 911S. While we don't have much info as to who did the engine build and when, we've put some miles on the car and can say that it's definitely a strong runner. It's quick, responsive, sounds great, and begs to be wound out. While the car is technically a 911E, the electronic fuel injection was of course done away with when the “S” engine was swapped in. Another reason we like this car is the relatively rare light yellow paint, which we do believe is the original color. A great color that only a 911 [or Beetle] could pull off. As it sits now, this is a quick, well-presented, driver-level Targa that is ready for a new home.

- Please see the video along with the listing, as the car is shown in detail. Blemishes are all shown close-up, though there are few. Blemishes include a dent on the lower front valence, a handful of minor chips scattered about the car, some slight aging of the rubber bumper guards, as well as some tattered cloth on the inside of the targa hoop on the driver's side.
- Light Yellow is believed to be the original color, though a respray. Paint was done to a high standard, and we do not see any evidence inside/out/underneath of the car having ever been another color.
- Body is bone dry, with no bubbling or blistering to be found. Weatherstripping is all excellent, as are the polished surfaces. No oxidation of the chrome, and even the rocker trim is nice and clean.
- Glass and light lenses are all clear and crack-free. Lights and signals are functional.
- This car will come with two tops, both a hard and soft targa top. The soft targa top, which folds up, has creases and slight tears from the fold lines. See photo.
- Fuch alloy wheels are in nice shape, with nothing more to note than some minor chipping. The Pirelli rubber has a nice purposeful look, and the DOT number indicates the tires were manufactured in 2013. Excellent condition.
- Panel gaps are good, but the passenger door hinge could use a look. It lines up properly, with an even, minimal gap and does sit flush to the body, but requires a bit more force to close than does the driver's side.
- This car wears “S” badging, both on the deck lid and glovebox.

- Again, please defer to the photos and video. Seats aren't blown out, but they do have some significant tears. Most significant is a long one on the driver's seat bottom. If this car were ours to keep, we'd order some GTS Classics sport seats in order to complete the “S” tribute look, and leave the rest of the car as-is.
- While the dash wears a pad, it's actually very nice underneath. There's one tiny partial crack stemming from the outside corner of the driver's left defrost vent, aside from that it's great.
- Alpine radio is functional, and plays AM/FM/Cassettes.
- Gauges are all functional including analog clock. Lights and signals are functional. Odometer reads 81,909 and is functional. We do not know if this is actual chassis mileage or not.
- Black carpet is excellent throughout. No signs of age whatsoever. The car will also come with a set of Coco Mats, but those are old and discolored.

Mechanical / Underbody:
- Please take a look through the underbody photos, as the car is documented in detail. This car looks quite good underneath. A little dirty with some oil remnants and road grime, nothing significant. No visible damage. An honest, dry car.
- The car runs and drives nicely. We've put many, many miles on a fully-restored 911T of the same vintage, and this one pulls quite a bit harder in a straight line, as it should. The car starts right up first turn, idles quiet and steady, pulls hard through the gears, shifts well, has excellent, firm brakes, and the suspension is nicely sorted, with no rattles, shimmying, pulling under acceleration/braking, wandering at speed, etc. Clutch has good feel to it, with no slipping or chattering. These 915 gearboxes can be a little finicky; this one seems to be in good order, but we do sometimes find ourselves bumping down to second before going up into first when at a standstill in an effort to ensure an easy, gentle shift. Those who own or are familiar with these 915-equipped cars will know the drill, as it's a more-than-common tendency with these cars. Regardless, this beautiful S-powered Targa is a blast to drive and if you're in the market for a Targa to use and enjoy but aren't a total stickler for originality, this car should absolutely be on your watch list.
- Documentation is limited to just the title. Unfortunately the previous owner did not include any manuals or service records in the sale.
