1985 Porsche 911 2dr Cabriolet Carrera

Offered for sale is astriking. exceptionally clean. well maintained and entirely documented 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet with only 53k original miles from new.Finished in beautifully offsetting Black over a Champagne leather interior. thecar is as mechanically sound as it is beautiful. A rare original example thatcomes with the original window sticker. every single book and manual (includingthe stamped service booklet). an unbroken and comprehensive chain of servicerecords from 1985 to the present day and a clean CARFAX report all... supportingthe car's ownership and mileage history. Whether you're in the market as aseasoned Porsche collector or just as a weekend enthusiast. this gorgeous andmechanically strong example absolutely deserves your consideration. In Octoberof 1985. Lynch Porsche Audi of Chicago. IL delivered the car to its originalowner. a Mr. Mueser of Rochester. MN. By 1988 Mr. Mueser had moved toneighboring Wisconsin. as evidenced by his 15k mile service receipt in 1988.Always properly garaged and maintained. Mr. Mueser always drove the carsparingly and only in fair weather. the definition of a cherished weekendcruiser. As such. the odometer had only 36k miles on it when Mr. Mueser finallydecided to part with the car. selling it in 1999 to its second owner. aninvestment banker from Milwaukie. WI. He would provide the same care and gentleuse. continuing the first owner's fastidious maintenance and accruing a mere17k miles in his 16 years ownership before we were able to acquire the car fromhim earlier this year. The car's finish is excellent. deep and lustrous andmarred only by the most negligible of imperfections (a rock chip or two. andthe like). none of which are significant enough to appear in the pictures ordetract from the car's considerable appeal. The beautiful and ever-imposingBlack finish cloaks a body that is straight and free of dents. with excellentpanel fits and gaps throughout. All of the glass and rubber is in excellentcondition. the black soft top shows virtually no wear and comes with both thestandard boot cover and a full tonneau cover. Warranty documentation shows thatthe car was delivered to Mr. Mueser with dealer-installed BBS honeycomb wheels.and while the car spent the last 30 years wearing them. we decided to switchthem out for the appropriate Fuchs 7s and 8s wrapped in Michelin tires withplenty of remaining tread. That being said. we have pictures of the car withthe BBS wheels still installed and if the car's next owner would prefer weswitch them back. we'd be happy to accommodate such a request. Lastly. thecar's undercarriage is completely rust-free. original and untouched. evidencingthe car's sparing. fair-weather-only use. The car's interior is equally asclean. the Champagne leather seats showing only nominal wear. which can also besaid for the original carpets and interior panels. The door pockets retaintheir shape - a common problem on the more used examples of this model - andthe leather wrapped dash houses the original Blaupunkt Monterey radio whichstill functions beautifully through the car's original sound system. Both theboot cover and full tonneau cover are in excellent original condition and.speaking of which. according to the original window sticker. the car left thefactory with the following options: Special Leather Interior (Champagne)Steering Wheel with Raised Hub Full Tonneau Cover Blaupunkt Monterey DigitalCassette/Radio Limited Slip Differential Power Door Locks Sport Seat Left SportSeat Right 16" Forged Alloy Wheels Cruise Control Spoilers. Front and RearAlarm System In addition to the original window sticker. the car also comeswith its full original tool kit. tonneau and boot cover storage bags. original"space-saver" spare tire and changing tools. original 1985 marketing bookletand correspondence from the president of Porsche North America to Mr. Mueser.The car is also extremely tight and strong mechanically. which isn't surprisingconsidering the amount and quality of care and maintenance it has received. Thebulletproof 3. 2L engine fires up without any smoke or hesitation. pullingstrongly and smoothly through each of the transmission's gears. Compression isexcellent. as is oil pressure. and it's easy to understand why this era of 911sis one of the most desirable: it beautifully melds efficiency. reliability andeveryday ride quality with a truly visceral. vintage driving feel that is sureto provide anyone behind the wheel a wonderfully grin-inducing experience.Everything works as it should. including the Air Conditioning. which wasconverted to R134a in July of 2016. This 1985 911 Carrera Cabriolet is offered with the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
