29K-Mile 1980 Porsche 911 SC Coupe

This 1980 911 SC coupe is finished in paint to sample Prussian Blue over a tan leather interior. With only 29,364 miles to date, the car shows exceptionally well for its age.  Accordingly, Ceramic coating has been applied the entire painted body of this vehicle.  Power comes from a 3.0L flat-six air-cooled engine and is paired with a 5-speed manual transaxle. This car was originally delivered to and bought from Hoffman Motors in Connecticut by the original owner and then sold to the current owner in 1987. The car has been cared for in New Jersey since. Ironically, the seller met the previous owner’s son by chance after 25 years. The seller states that the son shared just as much passion for the vehicle as he did. The seller claims he has consistently garaged this 911 under his ownership and only used the car for weekend pleasure trips and a few PCA DE Events in the early 1990's. 

While applying ceramic coating to the vehicle, a technician noticed a slightly higher paint meter reading on the right front fender (See attached paint detail sheet). However, the seller states that this car has never had paintwork done after leaving the Porsche factory. There are no visual signs of paintwork, which indicates that this could be the way the vehicle came from the factory.

As shown in the photo gallery, the interior is in above average condition for its age with minimal wear. There are a ton of 'modern' options for this 911, including automatic heating control, speed control, an electric sliding roof, a power antenna, outside mirror with electric defrost, power windows, electric rear window defroster and working AC.

The car is complimented by its original factory Fuch wheels and a set of new tires that have been installed within the past year. This 911 also comes equipped with 4-wheel vented disc brakes, brake booster, fog lights, sport shocks, front spoiler, black window molding and tinted glass. Some additional rare options include fuel injection, transistorized breakerless ignition, 3-way catalyst, front and rear stabilizer bars, front oil cooler, engine compartment light, transistorized tachometer and a quartz clock, ($34,899.00 total cost when new.)

The seller has addressed the common known issues of the 911 SC model, such as the replacement of the rubber center clutch, updating to Carrera chain tensioners and installing an airbox pop-off valve.  An additional $11,000 was spent on service within this past year including new brakes, rebuilt calipers, AC repair and head studs.

This vehicle is stock aside from a few tasteful upgrades such as Euro spec ride height, fire extinguisher, Momo Shift Knob, K&N air filter, and a front strut bar upgrade.  Owner will provide service records dating back to the beginning of his ownership as well as an invoice from previous owner.

    @StaggerSaint I have the paperwork and it will be provided to the purchaser. I had previously submitted it, sorry it did not get posted. But I also offered the opportunity for any potential bidders to call the shop to discuss the work.

  • StaggerSaint 1 day, 15 hoursago

    Very pleased to see proof that this car got an oil change back in 1988 but how about posting the receipt for the $11K work recently performed...

    @Ded911 Yes. I believe Prussian Blue was first available in the late 60’s.
    It wasn’t a standard color in 1980 but this particular car seems to have PTS option as the C of A states.

    @lochrie2 was Prussien Blue available at all in 1980?

  • Posrsr 2 days, 6 hoursago

    Incredible that someone listing on a dedicated Porsche site thinks that the fan casting number is the engine number? It's even more concerning that the site staff listing the car did not know this either.

    I agree 100%. Troubling to say the least.

  • lochrie2 2 days, 7 hoursago

    @LiveFromNY Prussian Blue was not an available color for the SC in 1980. The 9 in the middle set of numbers on the door tag indicate the original color is Paint to Sample

  • LiveFromNY 2 days, 17 hoursago

    When did Prussian Blue become "paint to sample"?

    Sorry, I thought the fan pictures included the engine number. I will post this Monday morning, as I had to head out of town on a family emergency. But I can assume bidders the car is number matching.

  • teescott 4 days, 13 hoursago

    I still dont see a picture of the engine number. I see the picture of the fan shroud, but the engine number would not be visible in that picture. Steve(owner), can you post a picture of the number, and also the trans number.
    thanks

  • Steve911 (seller) 4 days, 21 hoursago

    The engine number can be found on the picture of the fan shroud. The shop that did the work was Automotive Performance Solutions in Pennington, NJ. Their number is 609-303-0607. Any potential bidders should feel free to call them to discuss the work done and the condition of the car. Thanks.

    I tried to find the picture of the engine number in the photo set, but i do not see it. Did i miss it? I would also like to speak with the shop about the work performed.

  • teescott 5 days, 17 hoursago

    I would be interested in contacting the shop that did the work. Im not sure what the process is for you providing this to me on this site, but I would like the contact information.
    thanks

  • Steve911 (seller) 5 days, 21 hoursago

    I have requested that the recent service invoices be posted, along with a picture of the matching transmission number. There is already a picture of the matching engine number. Given the low mileage and the condition of the engine when the head studs were recently done, a compression check was deemed not necessary. I am happy to put any potential buyer in touch with the shop that did the recent work to discuss what they did and their assessment of the condition of the car. I purchased the car in July, 1987. At the time, the mileage was 23,423. The car has been in long term storage for a good portion of the time I have owned it, with relatively little miles driven. I did a couple of oil changes and brake fluid flushes during that period at a friend's shop.

  • teescott 6 days, 7 hoursago

    Very nice looking car. It would be helpful to bidders if the seller would post pictures of the invoices with the $11,000 recently spent. Also to show pictures of engine and transmission numbers to verify numbers matching. Also, has a leakdown or compression test been done by the seller recently? I know it is probably nothing significant, but it seems like on every posted invoice the mileage numbers have been fiddled with, or written over; they are just not clear to read for some reason. it would also be good to see some verification of the mileage through paperwork
