1982 Porsche 928Today I have for sale my 1982 Porsche 928 swapped with 5.7l Chevy "350". I bought this car in stock form and have transformed it into what it is today. This car was completely built by myself and never was sent out of my shop to have anything completed. The holes seen throughout the interior were made to lighten this car. This car does not have heat. Car does have a hood and it is currently installed.
This car was featured by Jalopnik. Please see following article- thegarage.jalopnik.com/this-insane-porsche-928-will-make-purists-crap-their-kh-1757871189
I am selling this car because I have many other projects and find more of a passion to build a car then to actually drive them. I have put maybe 2,000 miles on this within the last 3 years since I built it. This car is a beast but I rarely drive it and could use the money to fund other projects. This car has a clear Wisconsin title and is currently registered as a streethobbyist.
Car drives well. It could use tires soon and an alignment. Car has just came out of storage for the last 8 months (winter) so it leaks some oil from the pan gasket that will smoke a bit on the headers. As the car is driven more the leaksdiminish and the leak does not affect driving ability. I just want to be up front with the sale so the buyer knows what they are getting. This car is ready for whatever a person is looking for and is able to be taken in a variety of directions.
This car requires a $1000 down payment via paypal within 24 hours of completion of Auction. The buyer has 7 days from end to of auction to have car picked up, otherwise there is a $75 dollar per day storage charge. Car will need to be paid in full either cash or cashiers check before shipping/pick up.
If you are interested please contact me and we can go over the car and any questions you have. I have a binder full of receipts and can show that this car is packed full of top of the line parts. This car has been barely driven so parts are like new. Below is a brief break down of the car.
