Representing the final year of the 2.7-liter engine, this 1977 Porsche 911S comes finished in its factory-specified shade of Minerva Blue Metallic over black upholstery. The subject of a comprehensive restoration carried out at a reported total cost of $50k, it features an exterior refinish, interior refurbishments, and an engine-out rebuild complete with a new clutch and more. Showing under 105k miles on the odometer, this meticulously restored 911S is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York.

This example has undergone a complete refinish in its originally specified Minerva Blue Metallic at a total reported cost of approximately $20k. As part of the restoration, the door moldings, sunroof seals, and body gaskets were replaced. Additionally, a “whale tail” style decklid was previously fitted along with aftermarket rear fenders with side strakes. Other equipment includes body-colored headlight rings, a front chin spoiler, a single exhaust outlet, dual mirrors, and 15” Fuchs wheels dressed in new tires. The seller notes the doors do not close perfectly flush due to the need for the new door moldings to be broken in. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with photo documentation of the restoration.

Inside, the cabin is appointed with black upholstery. As part of the restoration, the seat covers and carpets were replaced. Other equipment includes VDO instrumentation, roll-up windows, an aftermarket leather-wrapped steering wheel, a heater, an upgraded Alpine radio, and Coco floor mats.

The rear wheels are powered by a fuel-injected 2.7-liter flat-six engine coupled with a 5-speed manual transaxle. According to the seller, an engine-out rebuild was completed at an approximate cost of $30k. This comprehensive service involved a complete engine disassembly, restoration, and the installation of a new clutch and shift bushings. The seller adds that extensive documentation will accompany the sale.

 

This sale will include a clean title.

The seller would like you to know: “See our comprehensive book documenting everything. The car runs, starts, and shifts perfectly. This car is done so it can be enjoyed!”

    @JC688 Good on you for picking up my early downshift (HAHA) I don't know what the RPM was but I did not let it go to high, I caught it in time. The down shifts are really smooth but every car has different sweet spots and I was testing the water on that. I should have omitted my mistake but i guess its good because you see the quick correction. Rear Fenders are steal for sure but there is no sticker for color on the car.

  • Universalimports (seller) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    @Bluesatyr There is no feed tube but they do seem to vent the brakes

  • JC688 (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    Can you answer the question below on steel fenders?
    In the driving video at the 40 sec mark, what rpm were you at after the misshift?
    Is there a window sticker or tag in the frunk stating Minerva Blue?
    Thanks

  • Bluesatyr (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    Hi there, do the vents... or strakes... feed into anything (brakes or engine) or are they just cosmetic?
    Car is beautiful, by the way.

    A beautiful color, beautiful and subtle mods, a nice personal expression for the owner, and doubtless sad for him(her?) not to keep, but life if filled with unfortunate and unforeseen events. A beautiful car that my own unforeseen events prevent me from bidding on. As has been demonstrated over the years, even Porsche itself is not immune to disastrous design decisions. Don't let the 'originality police' rain on your parade. Best success in your auction!

  • OldSchool 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    @Universalimports great -hope helps move the bar. Very nice car

  • Universalimports (seller) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    @OldSchool Videos have been uploaded. Thanks

  • OldSchool 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    No worries - photos show excellent detail - now just want to hear it

  • Universalimports (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @OldSchool actually, I made the driving video but it won’t allow for upload. I will make sure They upload Monday morning. Sorry

  • Universalimports (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @OldSchool I just uploaded several videos. My Father always told why do something tomorrow when it could be done today. Hope this is sufficient. Thanks again for the suggestion

    Steel aftermarket fenders?

  • Universalimports (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @OldSchool the car is tucked away for the weekend but I can have a driving video ready for Monday morning post. I will try for this afternoon possibly. Thanks for the suggestion

  • OldSchool 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    Mark - perhaps a driving video with just the music of the engine would help move the ball foward.

  • Universalimports (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    Good morning everyone. I hope you had a great week and I hope you will have a great weekend and maybe you are considering this Beautiful car to enjoy the summer or to add to a collection. My name is Mark Fuerbacher, I am the President at Universal Imports of Rochester. We are located in Rochester NY and take pride in being the place that people trust for their Import car repairs. We sell many Audi BMW and Porsches and occasionally we come across awesome finds like this 1977. The Customer who owns the car has asked me to oversee the sale of this car because we are the company that performed all the engine, mechanical and body work. We were not the selling dealer but The client and I have worked together to bring this car to where it is now. The motive for the customer was to have a fun summer car with character. We made the decision to keep the cosmetic mods as they were when he purchased the car for several reasons. One, they look cool in our opinion, two, the cost to bring the rear fenders back to stock was money we felt was not necessary to spend. Three, the intent of doing all this work was not to flip the sale but to be enjoyed by the customer. As life goes, The customer found himself with mountains of travel and also relocating to a different state which changes the dynamics and now makes the sale of this car a reasonable one to pursue. The customer does not need to sell but if his investment is fulfilled, it will make sense to do so. the paint work is some of the best I have seem from my restoration crew. The engine runs great and the interior really looks amazing. These cars will still only go up in value as I have been told doing research. I have attached a picture of the multitudes of documents we have as chronicles of the repairs done. We have all the tech flags showing several hundred hours of labor. we have documented correspondents between the customer and Universal Imports documenting what we did and how we did it as well as a timeline which will all be cleaned up into one PDF for the new owner. Please feel free to ask questions and I will answer them as quickly as possible. Thank you so much for your consideration. Feel free to learn about our team by looking at Universal Imports of Rochester on the internet.

    @ROren strange comment. Sorry it’s not to your liking but this is not constructive or correct.

  • Spectrumark (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    @Universalimports Thank you!!

  • Spectrumark (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    @Wingsandwheels I like the rear wheel wells, but could do without the fins. They look pretty good though, and don't detract from the car, only the originality.

  • Universalimports (seller) 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    @Spectrumark The engine was done from 09/21/18 and completed over the course of 8 months roughly. The body and interior done over 4 months in 2022-2023.

  • ROren 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    The video is not impressive

  • Spectrumark (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    When did the exterior/interior restoration take place and what was the milage? When was the engine rebuild done and what was the mileage?
    Thank you

    @zuch my pleasure. I will get pictures of all the engine work invoices and post it here for others to see as well. Might not upload until tomorrow though

  • zuch (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 6 daysago

    Thanks for being super responsive!

  • Universalimports (seller) 2 weeks, 6 daysago

    @Universalimports it will not allow me to comment the part Number so here it is with zeros for 0. 93010117oo2

  • Universalimports (seller) 2 weeks, 6 daysago

    @zuch definitely a typo. OEM!! Part number is #

  • zuch (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 6 daysago

    @Univeralimports I'm not an engine builder, but I have never heard of an ORM stud. Is that a typo for OEM (or ARP)? If OEM, you will need to be more specific as there were 3 (or more) generations of studs with some being good and others not.

  • Universalimports (seller) 2 weeks, 6 daysago

    @zuch it has ORM studs

  • Universalimports (seller) 2 weeks, 6 daysago

    @zuch this is from my Parts guy,
    Air pump has been removed. The thermal reactors have been replaced with stainless steel heat exchanger. The parts in the head for the air injection have been plugged. I have pictures of the plugs. The car is still on the drive on if you want to see it

    @Chongo Minerva Blue metallic to the best of our knowledge

  • Chongo (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 6 daysago

    What was the original color of this car

  • Universalimports (seller) 3 weeksago

    @Wingsandwheels a lot of effort went into this car and the choice was made to keep them on. It’s a personal decision. It can always be brought back to the original by the next owner. I appreciate the observation though.

  • Wingsandwheels 3 weeksago

    I’m a bit confused about the level of effort that went into this car and yet those fenders weren’t corrected and the tail pulled off. This car with original hips would be spectacular

  • Universalimports (seller) 3 weeksago

    @NHPorscheguy thank you. We wanted this car to look good but be enjoyed on the road.

  • Universalimports (seller) 3 weeksago

    @zuch I will work on getting you those pictures and answers to those questions. I am out of the office today and will return tomorrow with the information requested.

  • zuch 3 weeksago

    Bid in the amount of $10,000

  • zuch (registered bidder) 3 weeksago

    Can we get some underside shots? Also, how about a shot of the passenger door so we can see the gaps? Is the heat connected? I see the air injection pump is gone. Can I assume the thermal reactors are too? What studs were used during the engine rebuild? I assume case savers were installed? What was done with the air injection ports in the exhaust ports? Lastly, do you have a list of options the car came with?

  • NHPorscheguy (registered bidder) 3 weeksago

    I'm not an air-cooled purist so take my opinion lightly, but I really like what the seller has done with this restoration. I love a car that is restored to be driven and to not be wiped by a baby diaper in a collection.
