History This is an original California car which has lived exclusively in California (thank God). I am the 3rd owner having purchased this beautiful six on 2/6/10 in Santa Cruz. The second owner had the car for 35 years!

The car has 89,651 original miles on it (supported by a detailed gasoline/mileage/date log book kept by the previous owner). The car was parked and covered back in August 2001 and was apparently only driven around town once or twice a year if that.

Apparently the original owner had the color changed from Gold to Black in about 73/74 as it was recently painted when owner #2 purchased it for $5,000. The 2nd owner then had the original 2.0 replaced in the early 80's with a 3.0 SC motor with webers. Shortly thereafter a front oil cooler was added behind the front bumper.

The car has a few small rust bubbles starting to appear in the typical spots. The floorpans, trunks, longs, jack points are all clean and strong. The battery "hell hole" has some surface rust in the corner but that is about it.

All of the electrical worked except the defrost/blower motor which is pretty common. It has an after-market radio; fortunately the doors have never had speakers cut into them. The 2nd owner did replace the original speakers in the exact same location so unless you look hard you would not know it.

The car has a 911 muffler on it so the rear valance is not one the car. I have the original rear valance but it needs a little work before it can go back on the car. And, of course a 914-6 muffler.

Unfortunately the original front valance is gone and it has an after market front spoiler on it now. I will find a stock front valance for it.
Exterior stock except for color change from Gold to Black.

Interior Racemark steering wheel and after market stereo.

Performance Upgrades early 80's 3.0 SC motor with Webers.

Engine / Under the Hood early 80's 3.0 SC motor with Webers.

Suspension Konis in the rear.

Wheels and Tires stock 14" fuchs.
