This well cared for, 74,000 mile, Porsche received engine and transmission overhaul work back in 1982 and more recently had a full cosmetic restoration. It really looks nice in black with white racing stripes. The owner says that the car has a custom exhaust and new radio amongst some upgrades. The bare metal respray cost $12,000 and there is $50,000 in total receipts. The car sits on 14″ Fuchs.
This is a real nice looker and from the description it sounds like the drive is great as well. It is currently bid up to $22,500, reserve not met, with several days left. The seller offers plenty of opportunity to visit the car in person and seems perfectly legit, but does have low eBay feedback numbers.
It’s just my silly opinion, but it’s one thing to change the color of a classic car, it’s another to paint stripes on. It does look like quality work, but oh how I wish they stuck with the original Irish green. In any case, I think it’s not going to be too long when we’re all crying over how we missed the affordability of these classics. Looks like it went for $28K. What a buy.
I agree about changing the color. I tend to like to keep things original, but I can think of reasons to want to change the color too if you are doing a resto. In this case I think it looks alright.
Sold for $28,951.
