Porsche 911SC Targa
This stunning 1980 Porsche 911SC has just had a three-year restoration completed, with bills for some £30,000 of work and parts.
The bodywork was treated to a full glass-out respray in the original Silver Metallic, and new rubber seals and trims fitted, including the all-important Targa roof seals. The roof itself has been refurbished with a new lining. The rear lights and all the bumper rubber bellows have been replaced, too, to ensure that the car looks really fresh.
Mechanically, the engine has been fully rebuilt with uprated Mahle pistons and barrels at a cost of £10,000. The engine has also been treated to a full stainless steel exhaust system and heat exchangers with new pipework, new HT leads and distributor cap, new warm-up regulator, accumulator and fuel pump. The fuel tank is also new. The higher compression pistons and more efficient exhaust have boosted the engine’s output to well over 200bhp.
The five speed 915 gearbox has been rebuilt, its linkage overhauled and a new clutch added. There are new brake calipers, discs and pads all round. The heater motor has been replaced and the heater controls refurbished. Other new parts include the door mirror motors, the window regulator and the wiper motor.
The black leather interior has been refreshed and new mats fitted. There’s also fresh carpet in the luggage compartment, and new sound deadening in the engine bay.
A set of new tyres all round completes the list of main items replaced, but there are bills for numerous other parts, too many to mention.
The Porsche has been driven less than 100 miles since the restoration was completed, so it’s a perfect car for someone looking for a hassle-free classic 911 which has had pretty much everything restored. The engine bay is one of the cleanest we’ve seen! Being a 1980 car, it qualifies as a classic in the UK, so there is no road tax to pay.
