80 SC on PCAR

Anyone believe the miles listed for this car? 29K
I really like the color combination. And the car appears to be clean and 100% original to me. Others may spot something. If the miles are correct then this would be a nice stock SC to have.
The repair receipts seem fishy. Maybe the service writer at the shop was the issue, but every receipt with miles correction. Could have Dicklexia like Raw.

From the pictures I'd say the condition backs up the mileage. There are lots of cross outs and corrections in other places too.

But what bothers me is they state that the PTS is in Prussian Blue, which was first offered in 1985. I've owned two Prussian Blue Porsches and this paint looks very close, but not quite the same. The seller states no paintwork, but the paint meter indicates at least one panel has been repainted. I would venture to say that the seller is either not being truthful about the original paint, or is unaware that it was repainted prior to his ownership. Prussian Blue was only offered in 1985 and 86. Also, the factory only indicates option code 999-paint to sample, but not the actual color name. How do they know it's Prussian Blue? There's an untold story here.

As a kid Prussian was my absolute favorite 911 color. My first 911 was a 1970 targa that had been repainted Prussian. If this car checks out it appears to be a winner, but it has a few stories, eh?

I'll have to check my book on the pain color offerings for 80.
My COA also states PST 99 and my car was ordered with a 924 only color. The only way I can prove it is because I have the sales order contract with the color written out.
So if this color was offered for another model it is possible. That would make this car even more rare if you can connect the dots with proof.

If I were a bidder I would assume it’s a TMU car, and nothing more. These questionable markings on the service invoices aren’t going away, and what makes them even worse is that all of the corrections appear to be around the mileage alone, the rest of the handwriting is left as is. The color is cool, but don’t overpay for it by bidding as though this car has only driven 29k miles in its life. It’s driven more than that in my opinion.

The seller thinks the shroud part # is the engine #����

“Steve911 (seller) 2 hours, 45 minutesago

The engine number can be found on the picture of the fan shroud. The shop that did the work was Automotive Performance Solutions in Pennington, NJ. Their number is 609-303-0607. Any potential bidders should feel free to call them to discuss the work done and the condition of the car. Thanks.”

I doubt this car is going to hit reserve so it might be worth checking out closely after the auction is over. How could anyone bid with confidence on this SC when they post up invoices like this....Brakes pads at 03557 miles and someone wrote in "you might want to keep old brake pads, they are OK to use in an emergency" in different penmanship.
That is some straight up Jersey s**t. Hahaha.

This PCAR Market is really picking winners to launch it's new site. Can't wait to watch the Magnus auction - https://www.goodingco.com/vehicle/1972-porsche-911-str-ii/

By all means, check your books. I've checked 3 of mine, and they all agree Prussian Blue didn't exist until 85. If it were offered in 1980, it would have been one of the color options for that year, no need for PTS. So to be PTS it would have had to be offered in 1979 or earlier.

It's very possible that this is indeed the original PTS color, but the seller just assumed it was Prussian Blue because it looks like it. I'll bet that's it.

Doesn't look quite purple enough for prussian blue IMO, lighting makes that color hard to pin down though. Here is another '80 with a special wishes color that looks very similar to this paint. https://auction.catawiki.com/kavels/9971501-porsche-911-sc-1980

The Magenta MFI Carrera auction that blew up makes me suspicious of this outfit, thus suspicious of the cars on their platform. Too bad since there are probably some decent cars and sellers on there. The fact that there is a undisclosed relationship between the auction site and a used car dealer doesn’t help.

in general when im involved in the process of a potential purchase i always try to think of what it would be like to sell - if i simply go by the sellers word with no documentation to definitively prove an assertion then when i attempt a sale - it goes bad ...as alas most people aren't as kind and gentile as myself
also i dont think its safe to assume that the market for 911 will stay hot in perpetuity

Agreed. They’ve gotten off to such a bad start that it looks quite desperate to me, enough so that nothing would get the benefit of the doubt with me. I thought it may be a good venue to use if/when you and BaT can’t agree on a reserve, but with the questionable crap listed so far, I wouldn’t want to follow any of this shady sh|t as a seller. And nor would I be a bidder on any of their shady sh|t either.

wonderful car but if something gives you pause to second guess ? then let em keep it

most 911s shot up in price due to demand not rarity
basically what im saying is if you chose not to move on this one then another one will come along
always does

I think they probably just guessed at what to call it instead of just leaving it as a PTS color. Like other things about this car and site, they’re just trying too hard. Not necessarily a bad car, but a good story tells itself.

Lol just saw that. What’s even worse is the site representative didn’t know any better either

I'm having a hard time buying the mileage. I just bought a 24k-mile 79SC and the difference in the wear on the interior is striking. My driver side bolster looks brand new while the one in this auction looks terrible.
