FS: 1979 Porsche 911 SC

Moving back to Atlanta... Just trying to move less stuff. Especially since this 911 rarely gets driven at all. Basically a garage queen for the last 15+ years. Lots of replacement parts, but nothing really custom.

Forward: This was built for me with the upgrades/downgrades that I thought kept it pure to the early air-cooled fundamentals. If you do not like it, then move on. This to me is a great purists driving car on nice days, not a commuter or plush mobile.

1979 Porsche 911 SC
Black and Tan

NEW Ish in the last year:
- New alternator from Pelican
- New ATE master cylinder from Pelican
- ATE 200 brake fluid
- ATE caliper rebuild kits for F&R.
- SS braided brake hoses from Pelican
- F&R EBC Yellow Stuff brake pads (love them on everything!)
- Rear EuroMeister 17x9 Fuch rear wheels with Continental DW summer tires.
- New wool mats for the front bonnet
- RarelyL8 SS cat bypass pipe (awesome quality)
- RennTech Aluminum floor board / feet slope ramps for driver and passenger from Pelican.
- RennTech drivers side dead pedal mount. NIB not installed.
- Porsche short shift kit. (not the el cheapo spacer)
- Early pre-74 (?) air vents from Pelican. Got rid of the ugly blower motor and ailing plastic tubes.

Recent:
- 7x16 Front Fuch with Continental DWS tires (moved from rear to front).
- Llyods black floor mats for front seats.
- Kenwood Excellon X-994 radio with Bluetooth and hands free calling
- Phoenix Gold Xenon amp under drivers seat with Phoenix Gold RSd components in the doors.
- Window regulators in the driver and passenger doors
- Speedo rebuilt by Hollywood Speedo Repair.
- And some other stuff I'm forgetting at the moment

Upgrades:
- Nardi steering wheel - Vintage!
- Momo shift knob - vintage, but is not playing well with the new Porsche short shift gear shaft. May need to go to a stock Porsche knob.
- Cruise Control - Deleted!
- AC - Deleted!
- Hydraulic chain tensioners (of course!)
- Newer battery
- Fiberglass whale tail. Freshly painted "grates" inserts. (no rain tray, keep her dry)
- H1 Europeans lights come with, but are not installed. Day to day I just keep the sugar scoops in. Cha-ching $$$

General:
- Seats I think are Vinyl. Decent shape but cracking a bit here and there. Still 100% useable.
- Starts and drives no problems ever. Gotta love CIS!
- Sunroof.
- Original Bilstien car
- Factory 6/7 x 16" Fuchs wheels which are all original, not rashed, not screwed up. Dates match.
- Original motor - unmolested. Just valve adjustments as needed. Same with oil and generic maintenance.
- Fog Lights - factory
- Stock Trombone oil cooler. Not a problem on the street w/o AC load IMO.
- Atlanta local car. Moved to VA for 10 years. Stayed in garage when wet. NO SALT!


The bad:
- Really ish I have been too lazy to work on.
- The paint has chips. Road rash whatever you want to call it.
- Door pockets are well old and finally bowing out like the POS cardboard they are. No surprise here, just get new aftermarket RS door panels.
- A few dents here and there... They all have a story by either myself or the PO who shared.
- Oddball dime size rust spot /paint bubble under front window on passenger side. Really perplexing.
- Burnt wire from ignition switch to passenger rear taillight. I'm not an electrician. I imagine, a rub through in a wire casing somewhere that grounded out.
- Brake vacuum check valve is providing too much vacuum to booster. You have like 5 minutes before the brakes tighten up and the car stops itself... Weird right!
- I would replace the front tires with matching Continental DW tires that match the rear.
- Shift knob should be stock with the short shift kit.

Extra parts and all that good stuff convey. I have a box of whatever has been taken off over the years.

$30,000 no BS takes it... Must also be to a good home! This will not be sold to someone looking for a race car tub or to make a slantnose fiberglass abomination.

I figure below market to make my life easy. Look at the molested pimp trash that has been going for stupid money lately!

Best contact is 703-609-2642. Located in Northern VA. For sale locally as well.

Pics to come.

Pelican Member VASteve came by yesterday to take a look. You can PM him here for an unbiased review. He is a real owner/driver so he can give you the straight skinny for better or worse.

New shift knob and brake vacuum booster valve ordered from Pelican.

Tonight, I am ordering Conti DW 205 summers for the front to match the rears. Yes 16x7/17x9 stagger swagger. (the 225s in front clear, but look like balloons)

Lots of interest. Some tire kickers. Some lowballers. Some people wanna play 20 questions and not read all the information I posted.

30k or don't play. She can stay with me another 15 years.

Unless someone rolls up with 30 large, the little mamasitta is staying with Big Papi and hiding after Wednesday.
