Up for auction is this well-built and tastefully modified 1978 Porsche 911 SC. Having been a PCA concours winner in its past ownership, this SC is now set up as a true driving enthusiasts road car with track car capabilities. The current purchased this 911 from a friend around 5 years ago. Being a Florida car, this SC was seldom exposed to harsh weather and is said to have been well cared for its entire life and features a recent engine rebuild. The owner labels this car as a true "head turner".
The Arctic Silver paint is stated to have had one professional respray at some point in its life and shows very well with road going wear to the front end and chips on the corner of the drivers door. The photo gallery will show the true overall condition of this 911. Keeping the track car theme, the owner has removed a few exterior features including the power antenna, fog lights, and headlamp washers. A few additions to the exterior include an OEM front metal valance with integral rubber "lip" and two Rennline tow hooks. The car currently wears a set of factory Fuchs wheels with brand new TOYO R888R tires specifically made for daily driving. The sale will also include a set of freshly black powder-coated BBS wheels with TOYO RR track tires.
Inside, you will find a fully custom built interior that means business. Having been completely stripped including the removal of the HVAC and stereo, this minimalist interior now features two custom black and red Corbeau racing seats with G-Force 5-point harnesses, a custom roll bar, MOMO steering wheel, and custom-fabricated aluminum door panels with RS nylon door pulls.
