SOLD, 1981 SC coupe. $10K OBO/ Seattle Wa


regretfully it's time to sell my 81 SC - changes in my biz is telling me to get rid of things and sit on the cash. I'm preparing for a nasty 2008 gotta sell some stuff.

I have a clean WA state title in hand.

Specifics -

1981 911 coupe, Guards Red always garaged.

Mileage, over 200k - gauges all work. will update mileage when I see car next. EDIT ODO says 156XXX - I bought it with 131xxx - however it's not the original ODO, it's been swapped for a 150 MPH wheras it should be an 85 MPH. Obviously it's been changed.

Runs excellent, recent 915 rebuild and clutch - works flawlessly pedal cluster rebuilt, calipers recently rebuilt. Brakes everything flawless
Engine has probably been unopened. Occasionally puffs at cold startup, otherwise runs like a champ. Typical leaks around the oil tubes and puts a few drops on the floor nightly. IT's a good driver once again but don't think about competing the car unless the engine is gone through.
Runs cool
Reciepts from JWW and B+H Motorsports showing recent tune and valve adjust. Henry at B+H commented on the stregth of the engine.

Huge (over 1.5") worth of reciepts -

Things done - the good

930S steering wheel
993 full leather 8 way power SPORT seats, fully operational
Alpine CD player, MTX 4 ch amp, MB Quart speakers in door and Rod Birch 8" dual sub enclosure, excellent sound.
Sparco polished aluminum shift knob, full leather shift boot.
New windshield, recent brakes
7" + 8" x16" 205/225 tire combo real Fuchs
stock 6" front included
Authentic RUF front airdam
pro lowered and corner balanced
Flowmaster single in single out
Fiberglass Weissach tail (replica not OEM)
H4's with PIAA HD relays
fog lights deleted
AC deleted
CAT delete - has euro premuffler
Bilsteins, done when I got the car in 2003.
New battery 3 mos. ago.
new windshield
Recent Kumhos all 4 corners

EDIT : Carerra tensioner update and pop-off valve and open loop o2 sensor trick by JWW done as well.

Overall very good paint - about a 8 out 10 outside. Typical rock chips, and misc. tiny rash and imperfections here and there, not a single door ding on the body. People always comment on the quality of the paint, it's quite nice.

Interior, 7-10, could use new dash- have a spare later Carerra dash with bigger vents I'll include, sunroof operational but headliner has been taken off of it - it was ripped so I took it out. Car could use new headliner, but otherwise presentable.

Overall, the car presents really well. Anyone who has seen it at XXX Issaaquah will tell you it's in overall excellent condition. Not perfect, but this car is good for someone who wants a light project and in the future may be interested in doing an engine build. In the meanwhile it will serve as an excellent driver.

I simply don't have time to drive it anymore and I have too many things going on and it just sits in my garage. I can plug in the battery turn the key and it catches immediately and goes to idle. It's a very strong car you can drive it anywhere, it won't leave you stranded. It has a beautiful RSR idle. Subjectively this car sounds and drives like a recently redone motor.

I'm not desperate to sell it but I know that in this market I don't have a lot of hope for activity. Reasonable offers considered.

I may consider a trade for a Buick Grand National, but otherwise cash.

$10K OBO.

Pics below show interior with Sparco's car once again has 993 8 way power sport seats in Blk and power options fully work.

PM me if interested.
