I think Roger has a deal on the 53 relays, he is always chasing down some alternate parts source. Home - 928's R Us Porsche Parts Store

I have added that website to my bookmarks. Thanks!

Here are some more pictures:

Best shot of the fuse panel so far:

Anyone know where these wires are supposed to go?

I would like to figure out this build sticker:

Here is the original color from the last location the hood ornament was seen:
(the metallic gray is warming on me)


I finally finished most of the exterior work for now. Even with the Earl Schieb paint job it buffed out decent. I became pressed for time before removing the entire fuse panel for a shot of the back. I will do that tomorrow morning when I have the time to put things back where I found them.

Wow, my daughter has an 84 euro also, and the last 4 of the VIN are 0483 - only 4 short of yours, you have the much sort after 220 option, that's the 40% LSD. Your car will be a rocket when you get it going, my daughters easily out runs my 86!

Hey everyone,

I am putting this car up for sale. It is located 40 miles outside of Pittsburgh. It was last inspected in 1999, I bought it in 2000, and it has since been garaged. I am advertising here first - I would like to see pictures of it restored one day. I will be placing general advertisements on Oct 1, 2013. I will be taking better pictures early this week. It has 58K miles.

Any interested parties feel free to send me a private message here.

Thanks everybody for your help earlier this spring.

-Noah

Something to keep in mind, low mileage odometers are very common, low mileage cars are fairly rare. A 928 with 58k miles will look to the casual observer almost new. Once you look over a hand full of low mileage cars the ones that aren't are pretty obvious, this looks like a aren't.

There is no reason for the mileage to be faked. It has never been important for me to carfax it, any members can feel free to post the report in this thread. The vin is in an earlier picture. It lived some of it's time on Bolling Air Force base in Virginia. From what I remember hearing it was bought from auction as a long term recovery stolen automobile. From the paint covering the side markers I can believe that story, but who knows. I have owned it for over 10 years. I have not done anything with it. I spend more time with diesels and a few came up that I would like to buy, and need space for.

I might also be selling a 1984 black 928 American edition with this. It was parked running a few years ago. I cannot comfortably drive or ride in these cars.

No need for it to be faked to be wrong. Its routine to replace the KPH speedo with a MPH unit when importing, and almost all 928's have had the odometer fail for one or more of several common issues, an internal gear that rots, poor connections in the pod, and a connector back in the spare tire well.
Vin is WP0ZZZ92ZES840487 for future reference.
