1978 Porsche 911SC


Built in August of 1977 in West Germany for the U.S. market, this first-year 911 SC spent the first part of its life in California before moving to New Mexico for 20 years, and finally to Washington State. Originally finished in Grand Prix White over black leather interior; other options include a power sunroof, windows, mirror and 16″ Fuchs wheels.

The car recently underwent a mild mechanical refresh at Seattle Porsche specialists Gerber Motorsport to the tune of $5800 which included rebuilt calipers, brake fluid flush, new Interstate battery, fuel pump relay, a variety of wiring repairs, A/C condenser, A/C recharge and new tires. The result is that everything that this car needs to be daily driven or road tripped is working as Porsche intended. Additionally, it has been upgraded with the “Carrera” chain tensioner update.

The car was also resprayed in its original Grand Prix White, and the Fuchs were refinished. The interior is in good condition in general, seats show very little wear and no tears. The headliner is not sagging and in decent condition, though does show some minor staining. There is currently no radio, and there are some other interior issues that could be easily resolved by its future owner.

This stalled restoration project is the perfect rust-free blank canvas for you to put your individual stamp on. This is a great opportunity to be able to build your ultimate 911, however you envision it. In the meantime, you have a great driving air-cooled 911 to enjoy as you decide what direction to take it in, or just drive it as-is
