For Sale: 1985.1 944 NA Time Capsule Rare Mahogany Metallic / Manual 59K miles

Price: $8,500

Miles: 59,000 original miles

Color: Rare and beautiful mahogany metallic paint with pristine black interior

Contact: rkarlton19 @ yahoo or 202.494.03sixsix (location Virginia (Arlington) side of DC)

Putting up for sale my early 1985 944 NA with a manual transmission.



I purchased this porsche from an older gentleman outside of Winchester, VA. He bought the car from the original owner in 1991 with 28,000 miles on it and drove it as an infrequent weekend driver until I bought it last year. A picture of where it sat for 27 years is at the very bottom (garaged, next to a very well kept green 968).



I spent the last year enjoying driving it on weekends in the spring/summer/fall – and am selling now that the weather is turning. I have owned many porsches over the years (73.5 911T, 84 Euro Carrera, 95 993) and know these older cars well.



I had a well-respected porsche mechanic in the DC area go through it front to back in early '19 to ensure it would be healthy and reliable for many years - spending north of 5K.



I’m happy to provide receipts of the work upon request, but it included:
  • Oil Change/filter
  • Gear Oil Change
  • Timing belt
  • Timing belt roller
  • Balance shaft belt
  • Water pump (pump, gasket, o-ring, blockoff plate)
  • Radiator hose
  • Radiator cap
  • Expansion tank
  • Oil cooler housing seals
  • Thermostat, seals, circlip
  • Engine Seals (cam tower, o-ring and cap, camshaft, crankshaft, balance shaft, cam gear nose o-ring)
  • Brake fluid flush
  • Spark plugs
  • DME relay
  • Wheel bearing service
  • Charge A/C
  • Alarm Control Delete (was still active!)
  • Wiper Blades
  • Washer tank replacement
  • Fixed broken horn button


I have also replaced:
  • Radio
  • Fuel filter
  • Updated the DME and AFM with a used set from an ’86 (to smooth out the early 944 idle drop in between shifts). Original DME and AFM will be included if you want to take the car back to 100% stock and are in perfect working order
  • Throttle cam (OEM original will be included)
  • Power steering resevoir (with fluid swap)
  • Engine temp sensor
  • New battery


Little issues:
  • A bit of a rough idle on start up when the weather is below 60 degrees – this is the air idle stabilizer – if want the car perfect/perfect you’d want to address it – but after a minute of running, the car is perfectly happy and pulls very strong so I haven’t worried about it
  • The PO sold me the car after the odo gears broke on the tac (folks that know these car know it’s a common issue) – I have a recent safety inspection receipt from him that documents the miles prior to the odometer breaking – I immediately had the odo fixed under my ownership, but I want to be 100% transparent when selling. Put your eyes on the car and you’ll see it’s been VERY infrequently driven and garaged over the last 3 decades.


PPI’s are welcomed. Intersport is a local shop to me that hasn’t seen/touched this car, can give an unbiased review and I’d be happy to take it there. I won’t take it to a dealership – only high quality indy mechanics please.










This is where the car lived since 1991...
