Follow up on 1976 911S

Found this thread searching for thoughts on 2.7 Liter cars. I had also seen this one for sale. Coincidence?????

I talked to the owner of this car tonight. He sent the documentation on PPI (doesn't look like Porsche specialist) and engine rebuild of top end. Rebuild included Dilvar studs, timeserts, carrera chain tensioner kit, new guides, valve job, etc. Also new clutch, wiring harness and new shocks at that time as well. $7,700 worth of work and parts in 1993 by a well known rebuilder near Seattle. PPI showed brakes dragging on right side, oil sump leaking, front crank or oil pump leaking. Compression was 145 on 2 and 150 on 4 cylinders. Car was repainted in original color by PO to him. PPI said body was excellent, no signs of previous damage.

I've started looking for a 911. Can't decide whether a mid year would be a good way to go for first car. I'm thinking yes. Drove another 76 today but it's got a lot more miles and not the documentation this one has. Not sure about this color although it's different and very 70's

Seems like price is not bad. I'm sure he'll probably go lower than the advertised $8,750. It's just not getting driven which is probably the worst thing for it.

Thoughts?
