This was a solid result for an honestly presented example with no major issues. Most of the minor issues can easily be corrected by replacing the incorrect Carrera script, sourcing correct Carrera style speedometer, fitting the correct white Italian front reflectors, and adding the few missing engine bay decals. Given the strength of the rest of the 911 market and those sold at the Amelia Island auction you can consider this well bought and still a relative bargain.
