This nice Porsche has had 3 California owners and is correct except for the paint color and interior as stated in the C.O.A. Current owner since 2004 commissioned a bare metal restoration that required minimal bodywork. Original floors etc. remain except for a partial battery box floor replacement. The restoration started in March 2007 and was completed in April 2008. The car has driven approx. 7300 miles since restoration.
A complete motor rebuild was performed by the second owner. Records during this ownership are included. The current owner had the engine and transmission removed for cleaning, detailing and seal etc. replacement. During this phase of the restoration, among other items, a new clutch cable and guide tube were installed. Repacking if the front wheel bearings with new seals. While the engine was removed it was checked and found within specs. During reassembly all gaskets, seals and pushrod tubes were replaced, carbs rebuilt, plugs points etc. and a new muffler was installed.
The trans was removed, cleaned and detailed. The axel boots were replaced as well as the axle bearings, seals, O-ring and gaskets. Brake hoses and transmission mounts were replaced. Also, the main shaft seal was replaced as well as the linkage-housing boot.
Koni shocks were removed, repainted and re-installed.
At 69,000 miles a new clutch kit, clutch clevis, fork and shaft were installed.
At 74,893 miles / July 2017 a complete brake overhaul was performed by Canepa Motorsports.
Car was taken to bare metal, minimal rust was attended to then body was re-sprayed with single-stage paint. All chrome, including the window frames were re-chromed, all rubber replaced (and deco) replaced, the instruments were serviced. The color is a slightly darker version of light ivory.
The interior was completely redone with new headliner and correct carpet. The front and rear seats, door panels, quarter panels, window sills, dash top and rear panel were done in matching red leather. There is no vinyl. New seat belts were installed as were new rubber mats with floor mats on top.
The original Blaupunkt radio remains, as does an original owners manual with case. The tool kit comes with the car.
The car runs and drives very good and is nice underneath.
