Having been dry stored but untouched for 3 to 4 years we are hopefully that our 1980 Porsche 911 recommission will be a relatively straight forward project.

There are remedial bodywork, paint and wiring issues that we may look to address but step one would be to carry out a pre-MOT check to decipher what immediate work would need to be actioned in order to get the car road legal.

Arriving back to our workshops in Pettistree, Woodbridge.

The history of ‘our’ 1980 Porsche 911 SC

Backdate, based on a Right Hand Drive 1980 911 SC 3.0. You get the extra performance, handling and braking of the SC (Super Carrera) but with the much sought after, prettier pre-impact bumper looks of an early 1970’s model.

Finished in Ice Metallic Blue, in a light ‘Outlaw’ style, stock 3.0 flat six, 147,000 miles, 5 speed 915 transmission, power steering, servo assisted brakes, modern tyres on original Fuchs rims.

Original dark blue ‘Pasha’ interior, discreet but powerful Pioneer stereo with bluetooth/handsfree mobile phone connectivity, suede period racing Momo Prototipo steering wheel, electric windows, electric sunroof.
