This particular car was bought by its current owner in 1985. There isn’t a ton of info about the car before that in the listing, but after this owner took ownership of the car, he seems to have taken good care of it. The vehicle received a new silver paint job, a new black interior, and a rebuild of the replacement 1600S flat-four engine in the early 1990s.
The car comes with records of all its service since 1985, literature from the period, a removable hardtop, side windows, an owner’s manual, Kardex, and a clean Oregon title. The car has factory 15-inch wheels that were refinished by a Porsche dealer, some new hubcaps, and 165-section Michelin XWX tires. The wheel cylinders for the wheel drums were also rebuilt.
The entire interior was gone through and refurbished, including the dash top, door panels, and seatbacks. The tonneau cover was also redone in vinyl. the floors got dark gray square-weave carpets and rubber mats. All told, the interior looks as good as the exterior, and this is one fine classic Porsche.
