Description

This interesting righthand drive 911 SC has been the subject of a retro makeover by marque specialists Linstone Classics of Salisbury. Its original bonnet and wings have been replaced by earlier metal ones and the engine cover and bumpers by 2.7 RS-style fibreglass examples. The Porsche nowadays rides on 16 inch Fuchs 911 turbo wheels, while the interior benefits from period-type bucket seats and a Momo Prototipo steering wheel. The vendor acquired the car in 2012, since when it has been exclusively serviced and maintained by renowned specialist Tuthill Porsche of Wardington near Banbury. This has included the replacement of the camshaft, clutch, flywheel and front brake calipers, and discs and pads all round. Minor leaks have been cured courtesy of new gaskets and seals and the 915 manual gearbox has been improved by the addition of one of Tuthill's short-shift kits. The most recent service took place in November last year - some 500 miles ago, and `BOF 617T' is now displaying an entirely feasible but unwarranted 128,000 miles from new. The vendor presently classifies the modified bodywork, Silver paintwork, Black interior trim, 3.0-litre engine and five-speed manual gearbox as all being in `good' condition, and is offering the 911 complete with service book stamped from new through to 2002, and an MOT valid into November.
