What is considered original?


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 T; Year: 1970; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): Stock with Webers; Total Mileage: 58 K engine, 124 K chassis;

Bare with me please, I have to "front load" some information first. My uncle bought a brand new 911 T Coupe (white / black interior) in 1970 in New York City. In 1975 he moved to Florida and put very little mileage on the car. In fact, by 1985 he only had 45K miles on it. He kept his car immaculate inside and out and always garaged. In 1985 however, it was involved in an accident where the frame was bent. His Porsche Mechanic who had been the car's "physician" for the last 27 years found him another 1970 911 T Coupe (Robin's egg blue)that had approximately 111K miles on it but said the body of the car is "perfect"! My uncle bought this car and had his engine and drive train, suspension system, heating system, and complete interior from his white 911 put into this blue 911. When the work was being completed, he had his mechanic re-build his engine and tranny and a new coat of paint (Robin's Egg Blue). The car was re-titled under the blue 911 vin with the engine of the white 911. Since 1985, he has only put 13K miles on the car. The engine now has 58K and the body / chassis has 124K. The car is in excellent condition and still runs strong. I now own this car...been in my family for 32 years. The question is...What is considered original? It's all 1970 911 T! What class may I "show" the car? I was considering doing some high performance work to the engine. Would I destroy any "originality" to this car considering it's history?
