Our car has had circa £35k spent on restoration in 2012 and 2013 with full invoice descriptions of all the restoration work on file. The works were carried out by specialists RS911 Porsche – Restoration and Specilaist Vehicle Restoration Ltd. Photographs of the bear metal restoration are on file. Since 1976 Porsche 911 models had hot-dip galvanized bodies which allowed it a 6-year anti-rust guarantee.
In 2021 a top end engine rebuild was carried out by Tuthill Porsche with a £7.7k supporting invoice detail all the completed work.
The car is lovely to drive with strong compression across all cylinders. All the electrics work as they should and the internal fabric of the car and the external painwork present very well. The last service was carried in December 2018 by classic car specialist DMD Auto Services in Norfolk and was a full service replacing spark plugs, leads and filters.
Jasmine Porschalink have inspected the car and performed further remedial work where necessary.
