We are delighted to offer for sale this elegant 1978 Porsche 911 SC backdate.
It is a car we know very well as we originally did the backdate work ourselves around 10 years ago and have also sold the car to the past two owners.
The donor car was a RHD, low mileage (77,000), rust free early 911SC with bright anodised door frames etc. We did the backdate work correctly by changing the front slam panel etc and then fitting a correct long bonnet. We also narrowbodied the rear arches of the car and fitted original 1970/71 911S rear arches. Therefore the car doesn't look like your average RS, RSR or 911ST backdate and genuinely looks like a 1970 Porsche 911S.
As well as this work we rebuilt the 3.0L engine and gearbox and also restored the suspension and running gear with Sports Bilstein Dampers for fast road use.
The inside the car is fitted with a pair of period replica Recaro R seats in black vinyl with houndstooth inserts, schroth harnesses, Momo prototipo and RS lightweigh door cards.
The car has now covered 90,000 miles and is still in superb cosmetic and mechanical condition and is ready to used and enjoyed.
