Description:

1980 Porsche 928 Euro S Model

This is Euro Model S that sat with the previous owner for over 20 plus years. I wanted to do the work needed to preserve and protect the car. It has very low mileage as a result of its hibernation, currently 61,029. The car is in good shape wearing what I believe to be possibly the original code 956 ZinnMetalic (Pewter Metallic) paint. I am not a bodyman and am taking a guess. This is a Euro Model, so all the dash lights are in German, really very cool. It should be noted that this is a Non Sun roof car so much more head room. Headlights pop up and work as they should, with no issues. I have done the following to wake the car up from the slumber, drained all gas, replaced the fuel filter twice. Replaced a leaking fuel Accumulator to alleiviate the traditional hard start problem with 928's. Fixed a leaking gasket on the fuel tank, replaced all the spark plugs, new air filter and also all new drive belts. All front and rear wiper blades have been changed. No cracks in the dash of the car, which is an expensive common problem. I have kept the original Alpine radio and have decoded the security code, so it works great. I also fixed all the original Blaupunkt speakers, as they were all blown, but they all now work as they should. I started to replace the speakers, but wanted to keep the originality of he car, so I fixed them and they sound OK. It was a lot of work, but I think worth it. The electric antenna goes up and down with the radio being on and off as it should. I also flushed the power steering fluid and also have changed the oil and filter twice. The last oil change was with a high zinc Shell Rotella oil and a high zinc supplement added for security. I also had the rear differential fluid changed to a Motul Synthetic fluid. I have also installed all new tires in the correct size. The car runs, drives and shifts as it should. The items that need attention are as follows; the right side valve / cam cover has just recently developed an oil leak and it is dripping on the exhaust manifold and is smoking and needs to be fixed in my opinion to drive safely etc. I am not 100% sure how to change the gasket on the cam cover / valave cover. Oil pressure gauge just started to go to max as the ignition it turned on. I replaced the sending unit, but it did not fix it. Trans fluid should be changed, but it shifts as it should. The AC works and is cool, but is not super cold, it needs a recharge to get it colder but it does work. The HVAC switch only works at maximum speed and is a bit touchy. I believe that the contacts needs to be cleaned with some electronics cleaner. The cruise control does not work and the drivers side electric seat needs to be reconnected under the seat. It can be moved manually. The paint on the car has crackling in areas and there are some spots of bubblyness near the side moulding, but all in all very presentable. The paint looks fine from 10 feet as we say and even closer. It is not embarrassing and I received many compliments at the loca Cars and Coffee events locally. If you want the paint to be perfect then it would need to be painted. I believe that these cars are increasing in value, especially low mileage examples. This example would be a great cruiser with a little more work. It is not a speed demon, but is a competant solid cruiser. I have owner history records going back very far and of course they will be kept with the car and presented to the new owner. I am not a 928 afficiando, so I will try and answer any questions the best I can. Please feel free to email and ask any questions. All Sales are final and please bid with confidance and bid accordingly. Thanks for Looking.
