Should I Trade A '99 Boxster For A '70 911T?

Hey everyone, it's been a while since I've been on here. I'd like to thank everyone for their help thus far with my current Boxster fixes and issues. I am now looking at (upgrading?) to a '70 911t. I love the older styles and have wanted to get my hands on one. The one I am looking at is matching numbers, has been rebuilt, just needs a paint job. Let me know what you all think, what to be aware of/scared of, any input is great! Thanks so much

How many miles on the running gear and engine? Look for worn ball joints, wheel bearings, CV joints, etc.

Was the engine rebuilt to "T" specs? if so you are looking at 125 HP in the '70T vs. 204 - 260 HP in the Boxster.

A lot more to look at

I'll see your two Boxsters and raise you. 1970 911's are much more valuable and appreciating in value, Boxsters have a while before they start going up.

My 911T is much more engaging and challenging to drive, but it does drive like a 40 year old car - don't get one and expect it to keep up with a modern Mini.

Well, I ended up trading the Boxster a while back for an audi A4. I wish I had found some way to buy the 911T. It would be worth much more now...matching numbers and everything. I'm sure someone lucky picked it up for a steal. Thanks for the replies guys!
