1977 Porsche 911 Euro Spec 3.2 Swap

posted in: Online Around the Net | 0
I’m not usually a fan of swaps but in what typically is a 2.7 car, I’m ok with it if that’s your thing.  I read on.   But then their is the upgraded front bumper with integrated oil cooler.  A small sigh and eye roll.  But I’m a Porsche guy, the overall stance of the car looks authentic, the side “Porsche” stickers are subtle and a nice touch.  But it was the color.  The color drew me in.  Every time I think I’m out, they keep pulling me back in.
A repaint of the original ice green metallic with matching wheels. Nice.  Lose the huge Recaro seats that are designed for 5 point belts and let’s make a deal. 
On eBay in Guilford, CT with a reserve and bidding starting at $200.

“Euro spec 77 911 upgraded with 3.2 engine. New Recaro seats and Momo steering wheel. Otherwise stock. Originally ordered with sun roof delete, power window delete, and AC delete. Light and fast. No rust anywhere. Nowhere.

Complete engine rebuild top and bottom with less than 1,000 miles. No leaks, no smoke.  Front radiator style oil cooler with electric fan. Car runs cool. Slightly stiffer torsion bars so ride is firm but still not bad. Corner balanced. Runs and shifts perfectly.

Car was originally brought from Germany to Texas, then to California. Comes with records going back to when car was imported to US. Door jamb has special importation sticker.

Tinted glass all around. Professional repaint of original ice green metallic, paint code 266-9-3. New carpets. Includes new-in-box original pleated door panels in black to replace the green if you want.
