THIS IS NOT A SHOW CAR BY ANY MEANS, but an 8 out 10 in paint. Car is solid after a plethora of parts were changed and work done in 2016 and runs well. I had the car buffed and shows well. Undercarriage is clean with zero rust holes, dings etc. Very light surface rust was sanded. Driver side door hinge was replaced because it was loose and appeared worn. MILES ARE LISTED AS ACCURATE, BUT NO GUARANTEE. PROBABLY HAD 141,000, BUT I CAN NOT GUARANTEE.
Selling: Purchased as a surprise for my daughter and go figure... She loves sublime green but does not like muscle cars and now wants a HONDA.
I like and own vintage 911 porsches. ****INTERNATIONAL BUYERS MUST EMAIL ME FIRST WITH THEIR FULL NAME BEFORE BIDDING. ****PLEASE DO NOT BID AND ROMANCE YOURSELF IF YOU CAN NOT AFFORD THE CAR. I WANT TO SELL THE CAR BECAUSE I NEED THE ROOM FOR OTHER 911 PORSCHES, BUT DON'T NEED TO. I DO NOT WANT TO RELIST THE CAR AND HAVE ALREADY COLLECTED $1000 THIS YEAR FROM NON PAYERS ON EBAY. I AM SHOWING THE CAR PRIVATELY TO OTHER FRIENDS, POSSIBLE BUYERS AND HAVE THE RIGHT TO CANCEL THE EBAY AD AT ANY TIME.
I employed my ASE local mechanic in Dana Point, CA to do a mechanical restoration and replace parts since I needed a mechanically sound car for my daughter to drive. Here is the laundry list of documented repairs completed in 2016: Part receipts are in pdf version and can be email upon request. Parts purchased from Classic Industries in Huntington Beach CA and Oriely's, ebay, Wolfe's Classic's in PA(They have a great supply of Muscle car parts)
I went over budget with engine parts, and pre owned rebuilt crate engine because my daughter's safety was the most important. In retrospect, I should have put a $5000.00 paint job on the car and sold it without over spending on the car mechanically. Oh well... your gain.
