Now up for auction is this custom 1980 Porsche 911SC Coupe finished in White Gold Metallic. Under the prior ownership of a Porsche Gold-Certified Master Technician, this 911SC had been treated to a full engine and transmission rebuild before it was acquired by the current owner just over two years ago. The interior has been custom restored in black and brown leather while the car also features a lightweight ducktail rear spoiler, RS America-style cloth seats, 7”x9” Fuchs wheels, updated Carrera suspension, a Dansk GT3-style center-exit exhaust, a custom upgraded sound system, and more. The perfect choice for an avid air-cooled driving enthusiast, this custom 911SC Coupe was previously listed on PCARMARKET and is now being offered for auction by its owner out of California.
This Coupe is said to have been refinished in the current White Gold Metallic color during the 1980s, while the tag located in the driver-side door jamb shows the factory paint color to have been Copper Brown Metallic (443). The car has been modified with a lightweight black ducktail rear spoiler and custom decklid grille along with a rear bumperette delete, H4 headlights with black bezels, black trim pieces, and a custom rear valence to accommodate the center-exit exhaust. The condition of the paint is described as driver quality with noted imperfections including stone chips, scratches, touch-ups, and small cracks around the screw holes of the taillights. Detailed images are provided in the gallery. This 911 rides on 16” semi-gloss black-painted Fuchs wheels measuring 7” wide in front and 9” wide in the rear. These wheels come dressed in a set of Continental Extreme Contact tires mounted within the last 2k miles.
Inside, the cabin has been restored and upholstered in black and brown leather with lightweight RS carpeting, a rear seat delete, and RS-style door panels. Other features include a pair of RS America style cloth seats, a short shifter with handmade 917-style wooden shift knob, a MOMO Prototipo steering wheel with Porsche crest horn button, and a custom sound system with 6.5” Alpine coaxial speakers, an amplifier, and a hidden Bluetooth receiver and auxiliary input in the glovebox. The radio head unit has been deleted as well as the center console and air conditioning. The seller reports the odometer failed at 118k kilometers and was replaced with a zeroed unit that currently shows approximately 18k kilometers. All gauges are said to be working properly at this time as well as the power windows, sunroof, and audio system.
Power comes from an air-cooled 3.0L flat-six engine which was rebuilt under prior ownership along with the 5-speed 915 manual gearbox. The engine has been upgraded with a Dansk GT3-style center-exit exhaust while the suspension has been lowered and updated to later-model Carrera specifications with corresponding adjustments to the torsion bars and alignment. The engine was removed for service under the current ownership about two years ago during which time the clutch was replaced along with the fork and brackets. The seller notes that the car often crackles and pops under downshifting and that a Porsche mechanic found this is likely caused by a cylinder misfire.
This sale will include two sets of keys and a clean title (lien). A raw and visceral air-cooled driver’s car, this custom 911SC is just waiting to be enjoyed out on the open road. Do not miss your chance to get behind the wheel.
