1979 Euro 911 SC Coupe FS

I have a 1979 911 SC Coupe Red over Black located in Atlanta, GA. The car needs an engine rebuild or replacement. This car was my daily driver through November 2002. Too many receipts to list. The car has a new clutch and flywheel, rebuilt transmission, rebuilt fuel injection system, new fuel lines, and new starter all within the past year. I am asking for 7K plus shipping to take over my project. Send me an email if interested.

12K for an SC that needs an engine rebuild and the car has cookie cutter wheels? You're kidding right?

I hate to say it but you're better off to keep it until the market either gets better. or you have the cash to fix it.. cuz you're asking way! too much for it.. you'd be lucky to get 5 to 7K for it.. is it a non-sunroof car?

Porsche Crest '79 European SC needing rebuid...

How long was this car in Europe and what is the owner history on the car? When was it brought into the states and who did the DOT/EPA conversion when it was brought in?

Does it have any of the typical rust that all Eurpean cars have that were driven on those salty European roads?

It is of particular interest to see exactly which motor came with the car...or at least which motor is in it now. There is a number indicating this on the top side of the motor casing, next to the right side of the fan support, just behind the oil pressure sensor. It will be a number stamped into the case saying something similar to 930/54 or 930/19 ....this # tells alot about which motor it has in it now and what it may be worth upon rebuild.

Please post more info if you are serious about selling your car here. Thanks.

JGL

I don't have an answer as to how long the car was in Europe. I am not certain on the owner history or the conversion. The car was repainted prior to my purchase. It does have some minor surface rust. I can tell the original color was Guards Red. The engine # 6390745.

Eric I appreciate the insite. It is a nonsunroof coupe. The price is negotiable. I am already at a loss at the asking price considering the cost of the car and the total amount invested. Thanks...

Cool

When owning these cars you can't expect everybit of maintence done will result in higher resale numbers. Example being if you spend $1500 replacing your tranny in your chevy that doesn't mean when you sell it it will fetch $1500 over normal resale. Any how thats my point of view. good luck

The engine number I was asking for is not your serial number on that vertical edge. I am asking for the suffix # which is stamped on the horizontal deck of the case, directly behind the oil pressure sending unit. You may need to clean the area off to see it. It is formatted as "930/XX". The XX is what will be specifically of interest. The "XX" could be 03, 04 or 06 if the motor is a 1978 3.0 litre.

There is a website called "Porsche 911 Chassis Numbers" that lists all the different chassis #'s and engine suffix #'s along with the production numbers for the options in the different countries they were sold. It's quite interesting. It only goes up to 1999.

Check out this site...scroll down to 1978...click on it and look up your suffix number... 930/??. Which one is it? If it does not match one of those, it may be from a different year...not the original motor.

I have seen no errors in the years from '74 to '99...don't have the experience w/ the earlier years.

JGL,

There are some errors on that website, for the early serial numbers.
Don't know about newer serial numbers being correct, but its not a good sign.
