1978 Porsche 911 from North America
Great car for the money
When I purchased the car, it was a basket case. The car had been sitting outside for two years.
The top had a leak, and about of 1" of water was in the drivers side floor.
The seats were leather and dry-rotted, the dash was leather and dry-rotted.
The engine was frozen, along with some parts missing (nuts and bolts) that secured the steering assembly.
The paint was faded and the clear coat was missing all across the hood.
Removed and rebuilt the engine - it had 80,000 miles on it.
Removed and replaced the leather seat skin covers, new leather dash, new leather rear panel, along with miscellaneous trim.
Since the rebuild, I have driven the car approximately 80,000 miles, and it is a pleasure to drive.
Have driven it on the track along with several autocrosses. The car is super quick, and can defeat Mustangs on the top end.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
