1977 911S Time capsule, 25 years off the road, see the story

1977 911S for sale, Sunroof, AC
Full disclosure. This is my father's car, he has been driving Porsche's for 50 years. So here is the story, and it is good one. My father bought this car from the second owner, 24 years ago, who has just completed a full cosmetic restoration. Meaning glass out repaint, all new rubber, all new plastic lenses etc. and had all the black chrome redone. And then had a stud pull on the engine after approximately 500 miles. So he parked it, and then my dad bought it, pulled the motor and completely rebuilt it with all of the upgrades done ( Turbo tensioners, thread savers, etc. Etc. ) He also had the gearbox done by Jeff Gamroth ( Rothsports ). So everything was rebuilt and ready to reinstall, sitting on the floor next to the car in his shop, when he entered a sweepstakes in the back of Road & Track, bought 2 tickets to win a brand new 911 Carrera2 and what do you know, he won the car. This was 1992 and so the 77 sat there, with its engine sitting next to it, for the next 24 years. While he drove and wore out the Carrera 2 for the next 22 years. So after he was done with the 92 we reinstalled the motor, put a new gas tank in it ( as the old one was full of jelly ) flushed the brakes and for various reasons ( Jim is 82 ) just got the this all up and running and washed it for the first time in 25 years. It has lived it's whole life inside, and for the last 25 years inside and under a cover.
So the paint, ( which looks fantastic, literally like new ) rubber, black chrome has 600 miles on them with no sunlight hitting them. And the motor and transmission now have 100 miles on them. The engine sounds fantastic, it has new Stainless steel headers, and a performance exhaust, and it pulls like a train.
So think of it as a time capsule car, like a barn find, but that was sealed in a airtight container, so it appears to be a new car that just happens to be from 1977. It comes with the owners manual and full file of everything that was ever done ( receipts )
$43,000 feel free to call Jim at 360 385 3389 or email any questions that you might have to
