FS - 1980 911 SC Targa - Petrol Blue - Low Miles - Just Serviced

Powertech Select Motorcars is pleased to offer this solid, low mileage 1980 911 SC Targa. It is finished in stunning Petrol Blue metallic with Beige interior.

This SC has a leather interior (including) leather dash and the only modifications are the Alpine cassette player.

This car pulls very strong for a SC, the 915 transmission shifts relatively smoothly and overall the car drives extremely well. In fact, Powertech in Rockaway, NJ just completed a leakdown test and it was outstanding, as follows:

Cylinder 1: 2%
Cylinder 2: 1%
Cylinder 3: 1%
Cylinder 4: 1%
Cylinder 5: 2%
Cylinder 6: 1%

The current owner bought this car in 1988 and has not put many miles on it since then. Please note that when this is sold, the odometer statement will read "Odometer Discrepancy", as here is why:

- Current owner bought the car from a dealer in July 1988 (we have original purchase agreement and odometer statement). The dealer stated that the car at one point was a Canada car, and the odometer that registered kilometers (this was what he was told) was provided to the owner in the trunk, which has still there.
- The odometer statement from that purchase in 1988 reads 44,043 miles, which we believe was the total of what was on the odometer in the trunk (assumed to be converted from KM to miles) plus what the odometer in the dash.
- When the current owner registered the car in NJ (he moved states multiple times during his career) in August 2004, he did the same when recording the mileage for the title, therefore the title from 2004 (which is the current title) reads 52,500 miles.
- Currently the mileage on the odometer in the dash reads 47,202
- The odometer in the trunk actually is a US speedometer, and reads 31,175 miles. Our best assumption is that it is the odometer that the car was originally delivered with.
- We believe that the mileage of the car is 78,377 miles, which is a total of the two odometers combined. We have no evidence of the car being a Canada car other than the verbal statement from the selling dealer in 1988. This is our best assessment based on the documents and equipment we have.

The car has been stored for a few years most recently, but Powertech just completed a service that included:

-New Pirelli tires
-Oil/filter change
-Brake fluid flush and change
-Drained fuel tank and replaced fuel filter
-Replaced heat exchangers
-Installed pop-off valve
-Replaced fan and A/C belts

In addition to this service, we also have a few service records from 2005-2011 for replaced master cylinder, heater blower motor, new front calipers and pads, new alternator, passenger window motor, replacement fan and catalytic converter, O2 sensor and numerous brake fluid flushes and oil/filter changes.

The car drives very well, cosmetically the car is a driver as it has stone chips, numerous scratches/scuffs and a couple of dings. The driver's seat also has a tear on the bottom side bolster. Notable items are pointed out in the pictures.

We have the original window sticker, purchase agreement and odometer statement from 1988 and manuals.

PPI welcome. Trades are welcome. Additional pictures can be found on our website: PowerTech

Please do not waste our time with low-ball offers, as they will be ignored.

If you are in the market for a solid 911 SC driver, this is the one.
