Thumbs up 81 SC Coupe - Street or Track - Great Value!

SOLD!!! Thank you!

Car in Bay Area. Will add current pictures ASAP. Pictures shown are some taken over the last 3 years to give you an impression. Car will be at PCA GGR AX school 07/22-23. PM for more info.

1981 911 SC
VIN: WPOAAxxxxxxxxxxxx
Clean car fax
Street car set up for track and AX events, many extra parts included
Current tech for Golden Gate PCA time trial / drivers ed.
All the common upgrades and just over 2500 pounds light!
164k miles
Sunroof Coupe
Wine Red Metallic
Power windows
radio / in dash CD
Black interior
US car with sole NV / CA history
Extensive records back to 85 supporting mileage
Mechanically very good condition
Just passed CA smog - flying colors
Just paid registration - good until July 07

Exterior is fair. Many small paint chips on front, some paint work to driver's side (Previous owner had a door dent repaired - I have the receipt) and original paint getting thin on roof. At least the roof will need paint earlier or later.

Interior is nice, with all safety updates and a new dash.

I have all records back to 1985. Also have the window sticker. I am a very active Pelican and PCA member and have owned this SC for over 3 years and have spent significant time and money getting it into top mechanical shape and make it a well performing street and track car.

I have attended autocrosses and a few track events with it. I am still a novice driver and the car outperforms me at any rate. (But even I was able to run 2:16 times at Thunderhill, there are a few seconds in there with the right driver!) The car is definitely competitive and still set up mildly enough to be driven on the street every day, including to PCA events. It is very reliable. My wife does not hesitate to drive it to the night shift when I have her car to haul things. We used it as a third car. Unfortunately we could not resist and are getting a 993, so this one has to go.

Things that need servicing: Sunroof cable is derailed or broken. (Sunroof motor and switch work). Windshield washer not working. Automatic Antenna stuck "up". Small crack in windshield (pass. side). One H4 headlight lens chipped. Tow hooks bent. I will start working on some of these smaller issues and update the listing as needed.

Original 3.0, heads never were off, no noticeable oil consumption between changes, no smoke, no leaks.
