1979 Porsche SC Cashmere Beige

So I am starting this thread to document of my build. The car is 79 Porsche 911 SC in Cashmere Beige. I am looking to build a lightweight solid running car. So far i sourced a new decklid and rollbar for the interior. Looking for feedback from the community as i go along.

The car was originally from Puerto Rico. 2 prior owners. I am the third. It has the Euro rear bumpers.

I live in Orlando.

That colour looks fantastic on a classic looking 911. It's understated and period correct. That'd make an awesome hot rod - leave it mostly stock looking and add some power to surprise others. And to add some grins to your face...

Good luck on your build.

Love the color. Keep it stealth, wolf in sheep clothing comes to mind.

That could be my old 79. But it was lost in Katrina. Loved that car.

Hi All,



New to this forum and just recently purchased a 79 911sc. Its a Cashmere Beige with Brown interior. Great car! I am the 3rd owner. Prior owner purchased the car in Puerto Rico about 14 years ago. During that period he did not use it much. I can tell he loved the car, but alot of the repairs appear to be short cuts. Car is definitely a project and I look forward to driving this car daily soon. Odometer reads just over 30k miles. I recently just changed the oil, plugs, filter, belt, transmission fluid. Drove it last night and when i parked it I noticed a pool of oil. Drove it to the carwash and clean up the bottom. Came back and the oil seems to be leaking from the passenger side onto the manifold. I've attached a few photos. Looking for guidance on what i should do next?

Lots of threads on oil leaks. Spend some time searching. On the top front of the motor there is an oil pressure sender and a thermostat that are famous for leaking. It could also be from the oil cooler or valve cover.
