This 1977 911S Targa is a one family owned car with 91,000 miles. This car was brought to us by a local client that acquired the car from his father several years earlier. The Targa was originally Silver Metallic and painted red bya previousowner. The Targa was not in running condition the first time it entered our service shop so the previous owner had the fuel tank, fuel filter, and fuelinjectors replaced to get the car running.The Targa wasthen purchasedfrom the previous ownerafter decidingthe workrequired to make the 911 roadworthy would require more of an investment.
The exterior andinterior showas newdue to Porsche Colorado Springs makinga decision to have thevehicle repainted bySuperior Automotive in Pueblo, Colorado. Allexterior trim including seals and gaskets were replaced during the complete repaint process. There areno blemishes to theexteriorsince the car has been driven very little since completion ofbeing refinished.
Thetarga topwasrebuiltby well knownDave Brown in Boulder, Co.
The interior shows very clean with refurbished interior components andnewer sport seats. The driver andpassengerseat covershave beenreplacedalong with adding hounds tooth center inserts. Originally equipped with Black Partial Leather seat covers.
Extensive mechanical work was performed by our PorscheClassic Trained Technicians including atop end engine reseal with updated chain tensioners being added. A complete engine overhaul was not required due to the cylinder leak and compressiontest resultsin great standing.1% - 4% leakage on all cylinders with 140psi - 145psi compression on all cylinders. (test results noted below)
It is noted the engine has a slight oil leak from theback of engine when car sits for extended periods without being drivenwhich is considered to be normal.
Heater boxeshave beenreplaced.
Wheelshave beenrefinished and new tires installed.An extensive 4 wheel alignmenthas beenperformedafter setting the vehicle ride height to proper specification.
Extensive electrical systemwork performedincludinga new front wire harness, alternator, voltage regulator, and vehicle batteryinstalled.
The car has been driven very little since the completion of refurbishment and is said to drive with good power and smooth shifting.Without having detailed service records available we had to start from nearly scratch to ensure this 911 is ready to be driven and enjoyedby the next owner.
