1976 Porsche 911S Targa 93,000 original miles!

This absolutely beautiful 40-year old 911S was sold to the original Northern California owner on December of 1975. He had the car for about 10 years before selling it to a neighbor who would go on to use it as a weekend cruiser for the next 30 years. This Porsche has spent its entire 40 year life in the California foothills. It has always been garaged in between use, is totally rust free and has been driven only 93,000 miles since new! A rare find indeed! Our home recently sold on Labor Day (September 7th) and we are moving to our beach house back east on Cape Cod for the next year or two. I can’t take it with me because we have no garage there, and I don’t want to store it here in California because of all the associated “non-use” issues that go along with not starting a car for such a long period of time. Our home closes on or around October 15 so I must sell this wonderful car ASAP and my reserve price reflects my desire to expedite the sale process. I am simply looking for a smooth, uncomplicated, AS IS sale in exchange for a great vintage Porsche at a great price. Please do not ask what my reserve price is – this is an auction. Bid the highest amount you are willing to pay for my car. By the way, please attempt to view my car before the 5-day auction ends. If you are unable to do so, and are uncomfortable, or unwilling, to pay for my car before seeing it in person, then please do not bid on it. Also, I expect payment in full within 72 hours of the end of the auction. Once the funds (wire transfer or cashier’s check) have cleared my bank (Wells Fargo) then I will release the car and the clear/clean title which is registered, of course, in my name through January of 2016. Please note that I am not a mechanic, body shop owner, or car dealer, nor am I a self-professed Porsche guru. I am simply a gentleman that has been fortunate enough to have owned several Porsches over the past 40 years. In my humble opinion, this is a really nice one and given its present condition should bring the new owner a lot of joy and compliments from envious onlookers for many years to come.

Mechanical Condition:
Excellent! Runs and drives like new! Driven only 93,000 miles in the past 40 years and feels like it should. The engine is super strong, the 5-speed transmission shifts perfectly (even when cold), the brakes are awesome, and all the lights, wipers, gauges, etc. work perfectly – even the horn and clock work! In addition, it has been updated with the pop-off valve and the expensive Carrera tensioners. The compression is 130-135 in all 6 cylinders. Just changed all the fluids (engine/transmission) and had the car smogged last week. It passed with flying colors, even with all the factory smog equipment present and accounted for!

Exterior Condition:
This 911S looks absolutely beautiful from just 5 feet away! The very rare “Desert Beige” color is stunning especially with the chrome package (roll bar, window trim, wing window skurrounds, headlight bezels, and door handles). However, upon closer scrutiny, one will find that the 20-year old paint job is starting to show its age (i.e., some touched up nicks, chips, door dings, etc….) In other words, it looks really nice like it does in the pictures, unless you’re within a couple of feet of it. It has excellent door and hood gaps, and comes with the original Fuchs alloy wheels and like new tires.

Interior Condition:
Excellent throughout! The only real flaw is a 6” crack in the otherwise excellent dashboard. Targa top is in great shape as well. Front and rear seats, carpet, door panels, etc., are all in outstanding condition. This 911S is AC and PW delete (the lightweight model as some people like to call it).

Also included in the sale of my 1976 911S are the original owner’s manual, 70’s ski rack, jack, tool kit (partial), bra and spare tire.
This Porsche has been lovingly maintained and to the best of my knowledge needs nothing more to be used as a reliable every day car, or just a really fun weekend driver. If I were keeping it I can’t think of anything I would do to make it any better.

I’ve tried to cover everything, but I may have forgotten information or details that may be of interest to you, so please feel free to call me and I will do my best to answer any questions you may have.
Thanks and good luck! Chris – 916.220.2460 No Emails Please.
