History 3rd owner of a well maintained local car. Sold new by Carlson Porsche of Sunnyvale, the car was purchased from the mechanic of the previous owner of 14 years. The car came in all original condition with $50k worth of maintenance receipts. $9k+ had been allocated to keeping the AC functioning! History included regular (on time) service, and recent rebuilds of the transmission and CIS system.
Exterior In 2009, the car underwent a cosmetic renovation to a 74 Carrera look. Front and rear fiberglass bumpers and Duck tail from TRE motorsports in Van Nuys, CA. Full glass out paint by Dreams Collision in Pinole, CA. Finished with RS decal package from MikeZ at NoBadDays Graphics in Santa Barbara, CA.
All GREAT people to work with!
As purchased

Interior Originally delivered with a "Cork" colored partial leather interior, this was the first area of work after acquiring the car. The original seats were recovered in black vinyl, and the carpet and door panels were replaced with black RS light weight versions.
Eventually, as the build became more purpose based, an Autopower roll-bar and Recaro Pole Position seats were added. Five point harness system and fire extinguisher finish up the safety enhancements.
