Offers seriously considered above posted price.

  • Beautiful rare professionally mechanically and cosmetically restored and is ready for a new owner. While the engine was being rebuilt, the body was disassembled for a glass out respray in the original Polar Silver paint. 

  • Engine rebuild consisting of blue-printing, new valve guides and valve job, crankshaft bearings, intermediate shaft bearings, rod bearings, timing chains and ramps and HMR head studs. When re-assembling the motor, all new gaskets, breather hoses, ignition wires, cap and rotor. 

    New stainless steel fuel lines and oil lines for the camshafts, new upgraded engine cooling system with HMR heavy duty radiator, new exhaust with special HMR design muffler.

    When it came time re-assemble the chassis, new tie rods were installed and all four corners received new brake rotors, rebuilt brake calipers, 911 Turbo “big reds” calipers.

    The suspension was set to a more appropriate stance, torson bars removed, independent coil-overs installed on all four corners.

    All the glass including a windshield was reinstalled with new OEM seals and the doors, and sunroof all received new OEM seals. 

    Everything on this car has been addressed, bringing this car to being effectively a brand new car, competitive with the best of contemporary technology. Anything that was not 100% functional was replaced and everything including the A/C works as it did when it left the assembly line.

    Over $200,000 in renovation and restoration  - you won’t find a better “restomod.”
