Car description

This is an as is sale. The car is sold for parts or repair, no returns,partial refund, or what have you. Inspect the car before buying. You will need to get the title bonded since youre the third person with just a bill of sale and a signed title by the title holder. The following statement is my educational opinion and is not a technical advice or know how:This may be an easy restoration for a diyer with mechanical experience or knows someone who is. Don't let the European name scare you. Porsches and Volkswagen are well known for durability and dependability. Although, a few things you should know like check oil level only,yes only with engine warm because that's what it says on the dipstick. And als, the valve adjustment is .001, yes it is tight. And you can't do it without taking down the tub. It is an air cooled,oil cooled system. It has a trombone cooling. Meaning there is a bend on the copper pipe that goes back to the motor. You may need to remove the trombone and change it with any oil cooler that can be soldered to the trombone fitting. Otherwise,your temp will go up if stuck in traffic on a hot summer day. Copper line also has a flat part from bumping on a uhaul trailer. If you know how to solder copper, you can replace it with proper sized one. That part may have also cause the increase in temp. Always have a fire extinguisher when driving classic 911s. The body is galvanized and may last a hundred years easily if cared for. The steering shaft and it's ujoint are rusted which may be the cause of soft shaking at 75-80. I thought the frame may had been bent but can't seem to find any major damage. There are scratches and dings of course. The engine ran before being parked in the garage for a few years. All the oil, and I couldn't believe the brake fluid too, had drained out. I wouldn't waste my time fixing small things. If you get this, i suggest doing an entire restoration/ repair or use it for parts. 4th gear wasn't going in when driving, may need a clutch. The interior is mostly there except maybe pieces of the carpet on the driver side. It uses regular rectangular fog lights that you can get anywhere. Other than that, most of the parts that they don't make any more are there. Parts can be costly so you may save with this one. The engine and transmission sits on the tub. It comes down together. Treat it like a boat. Don't trust gaskets always use oil resistant silicone in every gasket. The oil sending unit may be the most common source of oil leak, so put oilres silicone on it too. Freon has leaked out since the last person used hose clamps to fix it. It may need new lines or upgrade to 134. This 911 heater gets heat from the exhaust manifold so make sure it's sealed or just disconnect it to be safe. It has turbo wheels. Wear and tear parts like the tires are worn out. Remember,this car sat in the garage for a few years. Have you seen a non galvanized 1969 911s going for $100,000? This 1979 with galvanized body may be one of your good investment. Be it restoration with your son or grandson or maybe just use it as a garage decoration to sell in a few years. USA buyer only. ThAnk you
