The vehicle in detail

Porsche 911SC Targa, production date december ’77, for sale by the 3rd owner.

The car was bought from the second owner in California in 2011, who in turn had bought it from his uncle, the original owner, that had ordered the car in 1977. That means the entire history from the original purchase is known and comes with the car, from its current & 3rd owner.

The car is matching numbers as confirmed by Porsche, as well as the documentation that goes back to the 80s. It also comes with the original manual and service book, as well as the original toolkit that is still wrapped in the factory plastic and comes with the factory plastic gloves for changing a flat tire. The original factory jack also remains mounted.

There is documentation on work and parts for many years, but here is a summary of the largest work in the last 10 years.

At import in 2011 the US mile counter was converted to a correct style EU km counter, and the mileage at that time, 89.000 miles, was converted to the correct amount in kilometers. This was all registered and documented.

In 2012 all headstuds were replaced with steel versions after some of the dilavar had broken (very common issue on SC’s). At this time the piston rings were also replaced and the engine was fitted with hydraulic chain tensioners. All injectors were replaced as well.

The car was repainted in 2013 in the original color, with a bare-metal, glass-out repaint, as well as fenders removed. New seals on all glass, fenders and doors. Conversion from US-style head-, taillights and bumpers to EU-style.

In 2014 the aftermarket air conditioner was removed from the car.

In 2015 all bushings in the suspension of the car, as well as the rear shock absorbers were replaced. Front shock absorber inserts were tested OK.

In 2017 the targa roof was recovered by a professional upholstery shop, and the front seal was replaced to create a leak-free roof that is quiet and wind-tight as well.

In 2020-21 the exhaust was replaced and backdated to the 74-style 2-in-1-out system, creating a more free flowing, breathier engine. Work included changing oil lines to the correct parts. The engine oil cooler was also replaced with a renovated cooler and new seals to fix an oil leak, and at this time the seals on the oil thermostat, idiot light sender and crankcase ventilation cover were also replaced, as well as the injector seals and seats.

In 2022 the fuel pump was replaced after the original stopped working. The ignition coil was also replaced at this time with an original Bosch unit. The Bosch K-jetronic injection system was tested for leaks with a smoke tester and shown to be tight. CO adjusted.

During all this time the car has had regular 5000km oil changes and 10.000km valve adjustments. The engine is dry and leak-free, which is very rare on classic air-cooled 911s. It has always been stored inside in a heated garage and the underside is in a clean, rust-free condition.

The car starts effortlessly both cold and warm, drives and shifts without problem, although the second gear can sometimes be a bit hard to engage. This is not unusual with the 915 gearboxes and could be a point for future improvement if the next owner wishes to know one. The car is prepared for immediate enjoyment and could be driven anywhere tomorrow without hesitation.
