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.
