This thread was linked by a more recent one...just want to see any updates. Did you get the car back in nice shape?

Curious as to how someone runs the car out of oil in only 100km? Also, are you sure this is a 1978 model? They didn't make "3.0 Carreras" for model year '78...those were only for '76 and '77. The VIN should be able to tell you. The Martini kit could be ordered in '78, but that would make this car a '78 911SC, and the owner could have just added the 3.0 Carrera badge.

And yes, those Fuhrmann seats were $4k in 1978 dollars (!), hence they were very rarely ordered. A guy with a low mile '79 turbo had these seats, and that price was on the sticker! That's $13,000 seats in todays money...crazy stuff! What an interesting car with an interesting story.
