Last year I sold a 911SC Targa on behalf of a client who had bought it sight unseen in the USA. And a very sound car it was, no rust, never in an accident, and all the necessary mechanical work done. I sent the car for restoration, although this was a tough decision, as a complete restoration was certainly not required, although the car did need to be repainted and reequipped with new rubbers. Mechanically, the gearbox required revision, the clutch needed renewing, and a thorough servicing was performed. The entire brake system was revised. One of the photos shows an overview of the completed work. The car was bought from me by a Porsche aficionado who derived more pleasure finding and completing nice ‘projects’ than in driving the car. For those who want to enjoy the latter, the driving pleasure, this is the ideal 911 Targa for you. Drives great - thanks to all the technological upgrade - and is a beauty to behold. The repainting was done by a professional Porsche restorer and is of the highest quality, without a speck of dust to be found. When all the work was done, Porsche asked for a birth certificate. In short, a perfect story for a 911 that of course can never be new again but really does seem so.
This 911SC Targa comes with a host of interesting options: cruise control, power windows, 16-inch Fuchs wheels, fog lights, leather-covered steering wheel and more.
A remarkable tight, sleek body that was repainted once due to some slight driving wear and a dullness to the paintwork derived from too much sunlight, but not because of any damage or rust. This car was never in an accident. The doors, hood and trunk lids all shut tight and are perfectly symmetrical. Rubbers were renewed all around, while overall retaining its original look. The famed Targa roof also closes tight along the roofline. The car’s color, Talbot-Yellow, is a warm dark yellow color that appears lighter in the photos.
The interior features the original, remarkable color, replete with soft leather on the seats. The floor upholstery is original; the car was not driven very much. The entry covers on the inner and outer door sills were renewed. The dashboard is beautiful and uncracked. All dials and gauges are pristine and in perfect working order.
The engine was completely removed during the restoration, whereby the engine compartment and engine itself were thoroughly cleaned. The noise-dampening mat in the engine compartment was renewed, which in fact can only occur when the engine is removed, hence a helpful action. The engine compartment features the proper factory stickers. The trunk features the original upholstery and complete set of car tools. The original 16-inch Fuch wheels are in exceptional condition, no brake grime or damage. Equipped with new Continental tires.
Sold new in 1978 in the dry climes of Texas, USA, and was only driven 160,000km over the years. The car came to the Netherlands in 2016, having been acquired by an enthusiastic client of mine who though he had bought a car that was somewhat visually and technologically nicer, and when that proved not to be the case, he asked that I find the right client, which I did. Now, after a brief ‘detour’, she is once again back in the collection. A very interesting car for one seeking a fine driving and restored classic car
