I recommend getting it running, not necessarily to cross country-ready status, but at least to demonstrate motor and transmission are sound, and then putting it on eBay with a sensible reserve, lots of pretty pictures, and as much information as possible. A good story and an honest/thorough seller go a long way toward satisfying the heebie jeebies of remote buyers and can drive surprising bidding activity. Be sure to mention/photograph tools, books, compressor, records etc. too if there are any.
Thank you for the idea and that may be an option for us.... Get it running and ebay with high reserve... Thanks! Then again we are still not certain if we want to sell as is or get it running and sell..... Thank you

Let us know what your mechanic says and when you are going to ebay it. Lots of us on this forum would take real good care of it.
LOL thank you! Nice to see you posted here in my thread after NEVER have posting on this forum over the last many years you have been a member, I guess the car caught your eye... ;b Thanks for looking out for my dads '8th kid'

Nicer looking AC duct too but that's just my opinion.

Looks like you got someone who registered on this forum in 2006 to post for the first time in this thread.
Car looks nice.
Yes now that you mentioned that the dash was replaced due to the reasons you stated.... it got warped by the sun/heat I guess so he did replace it. Thanks for noticing it was a newer better dash, I guess that's a good piece of information to know... It shouldn't ruin a deal for a buyer I wouldn't think.

It may be worth much more to a European buyer than what it's worth here(if the car has not been properly DOT Federalized)
Yes I know it's a Grey market car which might be another selling point of the car.... Thank you for your feedback and interest.

Not having the original colour will hurt your car, but I still think you should be looking at the equivalent of $40-50,000 - these cars are hot right now.
Thank you for the information, I really appreciate the feedback... I guess if someone wants the original color of dark grey back, they could paint it again... My dad paid about $7,000 dollars to repaint it silver.... Painted the right way (the car taken apart in full to be sprayed.. Thanks for the response!

Color change and unknown exact mileage is never good but the car looks good and a savvy buyer/ mechanic can determine engine condition to assess mileage. EU cars are cool, don't let them down play you on this. In EU they go for the same prices as in USA but in Euros. This car will not last long on Ebay and I can assure you that the Europeans would be all over it. GLWS.
Thanks for your words! My dad really LOVED this Porsche and he made sure to get it serviced ANY TIME it needed anything done to it. He always took it to a European specialist in Costa Mesa off of Red Hill.... Near John Wayne Airport. I can get the name if anyone is interested. Thanks again...

$60+thous. 2 start.

Heck, I didn't drive my garaged 911SC-3.3 Turbo for over 10yrs.. Need new fuel pumps-new injectors-fuel lines-fuel filter-blah--blah--Had also an electrical problem.. Changed to an MSD-6AL-& COIL...A lot of the work I did myself.. Cost effective. Got everything sorted.

Even if you don't get your electrical problem fixed and minor stuff, I still would start at that price. INMOP-U WON'T LOSE
WOW! lol I would love to believe it would sell for that much but am Skeptical..... hey who knows, we will figure it out and everyone here will know how much we sell it for once we sell...... so keep posted to this thread. (It may take 1-8 weeks to sell depending on what all will be involved but we have got the title in my moms name now and it has been cleaned up... Thanks for the reply...
