1976 Porsche 911 Targa

I am selling my 1976 Porsche 911 Targa with under 69,500 miles on it. As seen in the photos, this Targa has a red exterior, black interior, and whale tail. The car is mechanically sound and the 4 speed 2.7L engine is strong. The car starts and runs very well, shifts well, and drives nimbly with no problems shifting up or down through any of the 4 gears (see videos). I have owned the car for two years and have had no mechanical issues. Had an alternator issue early on, but installed a new alternator, fan belt, and voltage regulator and everything has worked perfectly since. The engine does have one or two small oil leaks typical for a 40 year old car. Body is in excellent condition – no dents or damage to body panels. Targa top is in excellent condition. The paint is vibrant and looks good, but does have some chips and blemishes. The interior carpet is in good shape as are the doors and dash. Leather seats show some wear and blemishes, but again, this is a 40 year old car. All gauges work, though the tachometer does bounce at times. The power windows and all of the lights work except the back-up lights. The trunk needs a carpet liner and the battery is not strapped into place. The upholstery around the back seats needs to be restored to OE (pictured) and the sun visors need to be redone. The steering column has some play, but I have purchased a replacement steering column bushing to install (will be provided to buyer). Additionally, the steering column is missing the bottom cover (pictured) and the horn does not work. Previous owner installed aftermarket radio that should be replaced. I will include additional weather stripping and an extra Fuch wheel as part of the sale. Tires are in great shape. The car does not have AC, but it is a Targa after all.

VIN #9116210176, Engine# 6460270
