We are pleased to present this 1983 Porsche 911SC Coupe finished in Guards Red over a black leather interior. Representing the final year of production for the 911SC, this 1983 example is said to have been originally acquired in Stuttgart through Porsche’s Tourist Delivery Program, shortly before being imported back to the U.S. where it has remained under the care of 4 owners ever since. Some noteworthy features include front and rear spoilers, factory optioned Sport Shock Absorbers and a 5-speed manual transmission with an optional limited slip differential. Having undergone some major mechanical service including a transmission rebuild, a Carrera chain tensioner upgrade, and a Sachs clutch kit, this 911 is now being offered with approximately 77k miles showing on the odometer by its seller in Colorado, accompanied by original books and tools, an extra decklid, and original Tourist Delivery material.
The classic Guards Red finish is said to be in very good overall condition with only minor cosmetic imperfections including some stone chips and road-going wear. The driver’s door has been repainted, as well as the rear decklid and Tea Tray spoiler. The standard factory rear decklid is also included and remains finished in its original paint. All body panels are said to appear original and all panel gaps are reported to be consistent. The side and rear glass are original and in excellent condition, and the windshield was recently replaced. The markers, turn signals, taillights, and fog lights are clear and free of any imperfections, with the exception of the passenger front signal cover, which has a few minor hairline cracks, and the passenger rear taillight cover, which has a small chip on the upper left corner. Factory options include front fog lights and 16” Fuchs wheels equipped with factory wheel locks and new Continental Extreme Contact DWS high-performance all-season tires.
The black interior is said to appear in good original condition. The dashboard is shown to be very clean, with a slight wave where it meets the windshield, and one very minor crack on the inside corner of the passenger side defroster vent. The driver’s seat exhibits a small tear in the base, with some failed stitching on each side of the base’s center. A set of sheepskin seat covers are also included with the sale. Optional factory features include a Sport steering wheel with a 30mm elevated hub, a black headliner, alarm system, and sunroof which is included as part of the R24 code. An aftermarket Sony CDX-5070 radio has been installed and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional excluding the air conditioning system, which remains present but is currently inoperable.
Featuring a more robust Carrera 3.2 case for its final year of production, this SC carries an air-cooled 3.0 L flat-six engine that was upgraded with Carrera chain tensioners during a major service at 65k miles. Approximately 180 HP is sent to the rear wheel through a 5-speed manual gearbox which is said to have been rebuilt at 54k miles along with the replacement of the clutch with a Sachs kit. The R24 code on the build sticker is also said to be inclusive of the optional limited slip differenital. Other noteworthy service items include the installation of an airbox pop-off valve, a timing service, new CV gaskets, and more recently in preparation for sale, new rear brake calipers and pads, a brake fluid flush, and a Fresh oxygen sensor for the catalytic converter. This example is optioned with Sport Shock Absorbers from the factory and a catalytic converter bypass pipe will be included in the sale. This SC is said to be in excellent running order with a recent leak-down and compression test yielding the following results:
This sale will include a set of 2 keys and 2-wheel lock keys, owner’s manuals, a toolkit, spare tire, the original decklid, some assorted spare parts, a clean title, and documentation for the European Delivery Program. If you are in the market for a well-sorted air-cooled 911, this beautifully presented European-Deilvered 911SC is not to be missed.
