That's one of my favourite colours for the early cars. It looks in great condition.

as per your request on opinion, a few things for you to consider and source for the future,
door handles, should be chrome, not sure if yours have been painted over or changed
windscreen washer nozzles latter type, could have had a bonnet change
early versions did not have the side mouldings
you may wish to consider steel wheels, Mr. Broadsider had a full set for sale, the alloys were an option for your car,

any engine bay shots so we can give you pointers if anything is missing

if you want some reading on the car a good book was written by Peter Morgan original Porsche 924/944/968
get the last one published with a yellow 968 on the cover
ISBN 1 901432 05 X
