1978 Porsche 911 SC - Matching numbers, LHD For Sale

This is a matching numbers left hand drive, non-sunroof very early SC, originally supplied to Japan and by chassis number is the 10th 911 officially imported there back in 1978, spending the majority of its life in the land of the rising sun before coming over to the UK in 2014.

Finished in its original Guards Red and complemented by a set of uber rare RUF Speedline wheels, recently refinished in satin black to compliment the dark trim elsewhere on the car, this really is a great looking 911. It presents beautifully, with factory correct panel gaps and lovely paint that positively pops in the sunlight. The car carries a light feel and so the foglamps have been removed, as have the painted headlight rims, though these remain with the car and are in excellent condition.

Fitted with a lightweight interior in black, including door cards, perforated corduroy Recaro style seats (at a cost of almost £3000) and a rare RUF leather bound steering wheel, whilst the remainder of the interior is delightfully factory original and in excellent order, with no cracked or warped plastics to be seen and everything working just as it did 41 years ago.

Loved by the current custodian for 2 years, having been purchased from a Porsche specialist back in June 2017, car has been further improved with a series of small cosmetic jobs including a new front bumper set and all rubbers, repainted rear valance, rear deck and bootlid in addition to those restored Speedlines. A stickler for period detail, a correct set of 1970's raised digit number plates have been fitted too.

Whilst all this makes for great reading, what makes this car really special is its structural integrity. Having lived in a completely salt free environment for most of its life, it has never had the opportunity to corrode from the bottom up, as most 911's do and when we first put it up on our ramps, we were amazed to see all of the original factory underseal completely intact; something the last owner managed to preserve for posterity with a recent application of clear wax.

In the last 2 years the car has been very lightly used with just over 1500 km's covered, so the total mileage stands at 145,000 km's since new, which equates to just over 90,000 miles in 41 years. Since 2017, the 911 has been serviced 3 times, so it's absolutely on the button and there's a comprehensive history folder that stands testament to the care it's received over the years.

From a mechanical standpoint, the car is completely standard, with the exception of a set of stainless SSI's which make a lovely noise, popping purposefully on the overrun and adding a useful power boost to around 190bhp. Unsurprisingly, it drives beautifully, just as an original well sorted 911 should; it's highly communicative, responding to the lightest of driver inputs.

We love cars like this - that have never been apart, bodged and then ‘restored', either properly or otherwise; there's an old adage that they're only original once and this is such a car. It still carries its original factory floor mats and the ‘Mizwa' supplying dealer sticker is still in the rear ‘screen - just lovely!

We've never seen a 911 of this age in such an exceptionally correct state of preservation and the last owner sold the car with a genuinely heavy heart in order to fund the purchase of a classic Range Rover. He knows that he'll struggle to find another 911 that's as delightful. This is a very special 911 in a perfect specification - a car to cherish.

Available at £52995; if you're looking for a ‘proper' matching numbers 911 with an interesting history that really is as good underneath as it is on top, you will struggle to find a better example this side of £60k, if perhaps at all.
