Up for auction is this 1983 Porsche 911SC Coupe finished in Slate Blue Metallic over a black interior. Denoting the final year of production for the 911SC model, this 1983 example features a newly rebuilt flat-six engine that has been upgraded with Carrera chain tensioners, a stainless-steel sport muffler, and an upgraded oil cooler. With just over 95k miles shown on the odometer and approximately 300 miles driven on the rebuilt engine, this SC is now being offered by its seller in Pennsylvania accompanied by service records, original books and tools, spare parts, and a clean title.
This 911SC is said to have been completely refinished in single-stage Slate Blue Metallic paint under previous ownership. The paint is noted to be in good overall condition except for some minor imperfections most notably on the right rear fender, front hood, driver’s side doorjamb, and near the sunroof (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). Some exterior details include polished stainless steel exhaust tips, a front spoiler, and fog lights. Additional air scoops have been integrated into the front bumper for the upgraded oil cooler and the factory Fuchs wheels have been polished and dressed in new Continental Extreme Contact Sport tires.
Inside, the black interior is said to be in good shape, although a crack can be seen on the dashboard as well as a small tear in the headliner toward the right rear corner. The sunroof was fully serviced under the current ownership and fitted with new upholstery. The turn signal and high beam switches have been replaced and 4-way Kenwood speakers have been installed along with an aftermarket radio which is currently disconnected. A MOMO steering wheel has been equipped and the door pockets have been removed. The A/C is nonfunctional; however, all other gauges and accessories are said to be working properly including the factory power-operated seats. A brand-new cabin headliner will also be included in the sale along with the door pockets.
The air-cooled 3.0 L flat-six engine in this SC is capable of sending 180 HP stock to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed manual transmission. A Carrera chain tensioner upgrade has been installed in addition to an airbox pop-off valve, an upgraded Mocal oil cooler, and a dual-exit stainless steel sport muffler with a cat-bypass. A full engine rebuild was recently carried out by Porsche specialist George Johnson which included the following items:
Some other noteworthy service items carried out during the current ownership include:
The oil level sender requires replacement, however, this 911SC is said to be in fantastic running order with approximately 300 miles driven on the rebuilt engine.
Accompanying this is sale is a set of 4 keys, a clean title, a spare headliner, door pockets, and the original books, tools, jack, and spare tire. For any enthusiast in search of an air-cooled 911 Coupe, this final-year SC is not to be overlooked.
