1983 Porsche 911SC Coupe

It’s getting hot out. I think I read earlier this week that almost the entire country will be above 90 degrees. What better way to cool off than with something icy? No? Ok, so a Porsche 911 probably won’t keep you cool on a hot day, but perhaps at least thinking about the icy exterior of this Glacier Blue 1983 Porsche 911SC Coupe will help cool you down just a little bit. Glacier Blue is a very light shade and I completely understand why the seller has chosen these pictures to be cast in shade rather than sun. In the sun this paint is light enough to almost look white. Add a dark blue interior and the transformation to iceberg is nearly complete with this 911.

Lovely all original, two owner Florida SC Coupe. First owner a woman, the last owner was in his 90s! This SC is finished in the very rare color of Glacier Blue which looks like a lighter shade of Gulf Blue. The paint is mostly original and presents beautifully. The car has never been rusted or damaged. The bottom is clean and undamaged. The engine runs great and has lots of receipts including head stud replacement. The interior is all original with Sport seats. The interior shows very well with no smoke or funny odors. The SC also has optional Sport suspension with 16″ × 6′ and 7″ Fuchs. There is a full tool kit, air pump, first aid kit and full books along with the original receipts detailing great care. The SC has had recent Continental tires and service and is ready to enjoy. Overall a great survivor SC that is very unique in this great shade of blue.

We don’t see Glacier Blue very often so it’s always nice to get a chance to revisit it. This one here is said to be almost entirely original in and out. My first question would concern the interior. It looks in great condition considering the age and mileage, but it sure looks like the front and rear seats are different colors. Is that how it was originally spec’d? If those seats have been redone then that’s fine, but it begins to call into question other aspects of this 911’s originality and at this asking price originality is pretty important. About nine months ago we featured a pretty similar car – slightly higher mileage, same interior color – that sold for $35K. The one we see here strikes me as being in better overall condition and has a few better options to go along with those fewer miles, but I don’t know if that all adds up to an $18K difference in price. We’ll have to see. Still this remains a nice looking 911, even with a couple questions.

  1. It’s a fantastic color combo on a very well preserved and documented car, but I think the price is way too high. I just bought a 1983 Convertible, which is not quite valuable as a Coupe, for $ 28k with half the miles in a pretty decent condition.
    In order to sell this one the price has to be somewhere in the 30s.

  2. I agree the price is a bit steep, but its a very rare color. For what its worth, the seller is a stand up guy who knows his air cooled 911’s as well as anyone out there. Still I dont see it trading at that lofty asking price.

    @audifan… the 83 cabriolet is one of the few that is worth more than is coupe counterpart. 83 for the first year ever for a 911 cabrio its also the only year for an SC cabrio. The 83 cabrio has a collector premium in it. $28k lol

  3. @Howard S:
    Thanks for the info. I guess my friend in Germany, whom I bought it for, got a nice deal.
