This car is the box ticker – having the specification that most classic Porsche hunters are chasing: RHD Australian delivery; coupe; matching numbers engine; and optioned with sunroof and Recaro sports seats. The bonus is the rare and lovely Petrol Blue colour with contrasting cork trim.
Given the car’s originality and specification, a relatively light (and importantly reversible) touch is being applied to any modifications. Any parts removed will accompany the car.
Since being acquired by us, the car has undergone a comprehensive suspension rebuild – topped off with restored 15×7 and 8 Fuchs (in complementary matt gold) with new Dunlop Sports Classic tyres. The brakes were similarly rebuilt.
The engine and gearbox are currently out for assessment and refreshment (further updates to follow).
The interior is all original bar an awful 90’s CD player, which is being replaced by a period correct Blaupunkt radio cassette (with added iPhone connection). Tri-colour Cocomats are also being fitted.
The final stage will be some paint work to the usual wear areas (front bumper, valance etc) and the engine lid (wing delete). The car has never been repainted and all care is being taken to preserve as much originality as is practical.
This car will be available for purchase at project completion.
