Porsche 911 Backdate 

After 5 years of building, modifying, and testing, this beauty is for sale. It is a backdated 911 of the highest quality, mixing new parts with patina. The car began its life as a 1979 911 G-model 3.0 Carrera coupe, delivered to a German buyer. To my understanding he had the engine replaced by the more powerful 3.2 version, which still performs very strong (leakdown test available). Somewhere in the 90’s the car was sold to a Dutch buyer, who kept the car for some time. Some other owners followed and the engine was revised. On April 1st (no joke) 2014 the car was purchased by me with the intention of doing a backdate version. All parts of the car were touched over the last 5 years. Some were modded, some were replaced, and some were simply maintained or refreshed. This mix of parts gives the car its character, just like a classic F-model. The car is ready for a new owner who just wants to drive the hell out of it and do some tweaks here and there over the upcoming years.

The backdate was done using high quality parts. You can replace the extended fenders with original shorts fenders, as all backdate parts are bolt-on. This means that without too much trouble the whole car could be changed back to an original G-model in the future. The original front hood and seats are included. G-model bumpers, doorsills, and engine lid are not included.
