and numbers matching 1978 911SC Targa.

for a classic solid "driver" 911SC.

has been restoring the car over the past 10 years.
1978 Porsche 911SC Targa Build Sheet:
Exterior: The rare and original European color of
Petrol Blue Metallic shows very well.
There are a small number of minor chips and paint areas
that appear to be bubbling from the undercoat.
According to the owner, a Euro paint shop expert inspected
these blemishes and determined they have been caused,
not by rust, but by using the wrong undercoat/primer prior
to application of Porsche factory paint or
there was moisture in the air line of the sprayer
when the car was repainted.
The only small "dent" is a quarter size ding in the top right fender
near the hood (high definition photos of these areas
The body has absolutely no rust or body filler
and the floor pans are solid as are the rocker panels,
quarters, doors, etc.
Interior: The Black Leather interior of this car is
remarkably well preserved for the age of the car.
The only item needed is replacement of the
original factory speakers.
The headliner of the removable Targa roof showing its age,
which is quite common for 911 Targas of this era.

5-speed transmission are in excellent mechanical condition
with no fluid leaks.

factory rubber hub-type clutch assembly with the
