81 SC Value

Considering selling my 81 SC, I don't drive it much anymore. Been a while since I sold a Porsche and know the air cooled market changed a lot since I last looked. Opinions on value range and recommended marketplace appreciated!

Owned since 2005, mechanically upgraded and was autocrossed with GGR PCA occasionally. Now sits under a cover (next to another undriven Porsche under a cover).

Mechanically solid, cosmetically old. Mileage is just over 100,000. Had a lot of attention put into it a while back.

Here's a description:
Current mileage ~105,000
No rust, one respray in original platinum bronze, clear is peeling
Espresso brown interior, full leather a bit tired
Factory limited slip differential
Factory short shift
Factory sport seats, recovered in original color
A/C removed
Electric sun roof, works!
Fuchs 6/7, original finish. Have repro 8s as well for the rear.
Have tool roll and spare, owners manual

Mechanical:
3.0L with 915 transmission, both rebuilt in late 90s ~80k miles
22/28 torsions
Turbo tie rods
Poly suspension bushings
Strut bar
Harness bar
Solid bushing coupler
Solid bushing pedal cluster
Heater backdate
MSD ignition
Cat bypass, original cat available
Sport exhaust, original available
Koni sport shocks
Many receipts and service history, rebuild for motor and trans documented

Great bones, right restoration candidate or R-Gruppe for the right person. Awesome car, would keep if I had more space/time/money.

Thoughts?



Can add more pics if it helps
