1979 YW934V PORSCHE 911 SC TARGA

Budget 911 ownership; essentially solid car that runs and drives; needs some cosmetic tidying; MOT until November 2020

This metallic Bronze 911 SC Targa comes from long-term ownership. The vendor had always promised himself a 911 and purchased this one in 1986, the car having been imported (from Sweden it is believed) and converted to RHD before he got it. A letter on file states that the conversion was done to a professional standard using Porsche genuine parts.

The V5C show eight previous owners, but some of these are the vendor's family as the car got shuffled between them at various different addresses. There is also a letter on file dating a speedometer change in July 1989 by which time the car had covered 93,111kms (58,200 miles). The replacement now shows 44,000 miles making a total of 102,200 miles.

Used regularly for a few years, it then covered very few miles each year until five years ago or so it was put into storage.
It starts readily, runs and drives and carries an MOT until 15th November this year. The brakes are a bit ‘sticky’ and the driver’s window will need attention. The paintwork is also showing its age too, with some peeling lacquer and an area of rust below the n/s headlight. The Kidney boxes are present and look sound, as do the B-posts which can rot badly on these models.

Complete with ‘Cookie-cutter’ wheels, this 911 SC Targa is on offer at a level which offers access to the exclusive 911 ‘club’ at a very sensible level. A few weekends work would transform this car.
