Up for auction is this 1980 Porsche 911SC Targa finished in Guards Red over a black interior. This 1980 example was acquired by the seller approximately six years ago after it had been discovered tucked away in a garage. It was subsequently treated to a bare-metal glass-out respray in its factory original color along with a complete top-end engine rebuild, transmission rebuild, a restored Targa top, new interior upholstery, and more. Showing just over 77k miles showing on the odometer, this nicely sorted Targa is being offered for auction by its seller out of New Jersey.
This 911SC comes finished in the traditional Guards Red with a removable black Targa top, front spoiler, and rectangular front fog lights. Within the last six years, this 911SC has been stripped to bare metal and refinished in its original color using high-quality Glasurit paint by specialists at RSR Autobody of Wyckoff, New Jersey. The Targa top was also restored by Dan Petchal of Southern New Jersey. This 1980 example rides on factory Fuchs wheels dressed in General G-Max tires.
Inside, the black interior has been fitted with all new carpeting and upholstery for the dashboard and seats by Classic 9 of Michigan. All gauges and accessories are said to remain fully functional including the original Blaupunkt radio.
Power comes from an air-cooled 3.0L flat-six engine rated at 180 HP and 175 lb.-ft of torque stock. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed 915 manual gearbox. A top-end engine and transmission rebuild were carried out by a factory-trained Porsche mechanic along with an overhaul of the braking system by RennSmith of Dover, New Jersey. A new factory-spec reproduction gas tank and muffler have been fitted as well.
This sale will include a spare tire and a clean title. For any enthusiast in search of a classic air-cooled Targa, this thoroughly refurbished 911SC is not to be overlooked.
