1977 Porsche 911I recently had the opportunity to purchase an extremely fine Porsche from the original owner that actually purchased the car new after graduating college in 1977. After 40 years, and only 30,000 original miles - decided to finally let it go due to increasing health concerns. Purchased new in 1977, constantly garaged and never driven in foul weather....this car is a true "time capsule". No paint work ever, everything is there from the original title dated 1977, dealer order forms with desired options, factory window invoice, unused tool roll in original plastic with drop cloth, tire bag, plastic gloves, front tag bracket, factory keys, all books including owner's manual and maintenance booklet with factory key ID number card, etc.
The owner put approximately 14,500 miles on the car in the first two years of ownership, with the remaining 15,000 miles coming over the next 42 years. The car is basically perfect! It is a 1977 911S targa in sienna metallic, or what is known here as burgundy metallic on the invoice. The top has never been folded and is in as new condition. No damage OF ANY TYPE - EVER!
All updates of importance have been addressed and are documented such as chain tensioners, replacement of the dreaded thermal reactors early on, (this and all work done by the dealer) as well as eliminating the smog pump which is also carefully preserved and well packed away but included. European lens were also added early on by the dealer with the original sealed beams and chrome surrounds included with their boxes as well as factory air pump in its original box.
Cork leather interior is perfect and includes a complete Blaupunkt Bamburg radio with all books with Hirschmann paperwork - with factory microphone and black box. No damage anywhere inside or out. I am certain that somewhere there could be a 77 911 with lower miles but I would say without reservation that there is no better preserved original 77 911 targa anywhere in the world.
I am no expert, and I realize that 1977 was not a super-rare year for these cars by any means but when you get a chance to see an example that has been owned and cared for for over 40 years by the one and only loving owner in this remarkable overall condition it can truly be said that this is worthy of high praise and a very desirable piece for any serious collector.
As of these photos the car has not been cleaned up at all.....
