Car description

1978 Porsche 930 Turbo in rare Paint To Sample Sienna Brown Metallic (436) which was a 1977 color. Vin Number 9308800063 is the 63rd 930 built in 1978. This Porsche has 25,453 miles from new. No modifications100% stock. We have no Carfax due to being a 1978, but we have several receipts as well as periods of long term collection ownership to back up the mileage claim. See the documentation section below for further explanation. I did not own the car from new, so I cant say with out a doubt, but I can show you the documentation and you can decide. The condition of the car appears as a 25K mile car that is 40 years old. It is not perfect. It has small flaws and wear and tear. It has not been restored or "rejuvenated". It has not had a "color correction". It is not an almost survivor, it is a true survivor. Fantastically original including the smell inside.
Body: Original paint with the exception of the drivers side rear quarter. The panel does not appear to have been replaced. Please see the letter from a 30 year veteran of the detail business explaining the paint meter readings. There are surface scratches and chips on the nose. Slight fading on the black trim. The exterior rubber has some dryness such as around the windshield. The windows appears to have all of original stamping. The doors open and shut with a nice click as they did when they were new.
Interior: Presented in Cork Leather as per the Certificate of Authenticity. Factory optional (per the COE) Sport seats and door panels show as close to new as 40 years of wear can allow. The dash has some warping. No cracks. The dash appears to have been covered in leather which may or may not be original. A/C Vents have some warping. Carpet has fading and some delamination on the front edges. Mush of the wear is from the Arizona heat sitting in a collection. Little to no wear on the steering wheel. There is a receipt showing a "steering wheel repair" from April of 2002 which could have been new leather. The headliner has slight staining, and a spot on the back of the sunroof headliner that appears to be coming off. I have a picture and can send it to you if you would to see it.
Boot: Clean with out any rust. Clean metal with all the bolts looking clean and un touched. The carpet pad is dry and a little out of shape, but shows well. Inspection cardboard plate is in tact and not torn. The original spare, and jack are present. The tool roll is in the trunk but appears to be missing a couple of tools. The underside of the boot lid looks as new.
Engine compartment:Numbers matching as per the COA (Motor sn #6881085) Numbers matching Trans axle ( #780175). No slimy dressing, just original Porsche finishes. There is a receipt evidencing the rebuild of the motor from Midwest Eurosport Inc in Benseville IL from 12-2-08. Total cost of $10,162.00. The millage in 2008 was listed as 24257. About 200 miles ago. Yes it leaks oil, but not much. The Engine and trans axle are clean of oil grime.
Chassis: The chassis is of coarse totally rust free and clean. Not detail scrubbed with a brush clean. This is the clean that a 25,453 mile car would be. There is a receipt for the tires from 2001. They are in excellent shapee, but they are old.
Mechanical: The current owner has not driven the car enough to really be called a shake down. It was purchased in 2015, and has sat in the collection. started monthly, and exercised small amounts by the on staff mechanic. Upon startup it puffs a small amount of smoke. Once running the smoke goes away. The lights, all work. The brakes work well. There are no odd noises. Again this has been a garage queen for many years. If you ask me "can I drive it to New York". I am going to say I think so, but it would be best to have a complete check up prior to leaving.
Documentation: The first owner traded or sold the car to Ducky Imports (appear to be out of business) in 1983 with a reported 12851 miles. The 2nd owner is a PCA member whom I found notes of his 24 ownership on the PCA website of SN# 00063.TheReceipts that come with the car I believe to be the 2nd owner which include the engine rebuild in 2009. The second owner sold the car in 2011 with 25260 miles to a dealer named Sloan Cars (I have an email chain from them, and they are still in business). We have the email charting the sale from the dealer whom sold the car to owner 4, and documents the mileage. The 4th owner had the car from 2011 with 25260 miles till it was sold to owner 5 in 2015 with 25260 miles. Now displaying 25453, and ready to go to owner number 6.
As with any of my cars for sale I am happy to answer questions. Please call me. I will entertain all offers, and run them past the owner. I do tend to sell out side of Ebay. I will nicely say that this car will not be cheap. It is priced where an original low mileage well preserved 930 Turbo Porsche should be. We are happy to schedule inspections. The car is located in Paradise Valley AZ .
