How does such a fun-to-drive, mint-condition, 9,000 mile car end up collecting dust in the back corner of warehouse? And how did it remain stationary while the air-cooled Porsche market exploded in the late 2000s? Well, it's not always about dollars. We're selling this car on behalf of a local gentleman, who has been buying cars new since the mid-1950s, driving them for a few thousand miles, and parking them once he's ready to move onto something else. He spec'd out this 911 to his liking and ordered it new from Lee Klinger Porsche-Audi of Highland Park, Illinois in July of 1984. As he already had a number of “fun cars” at the time, the 911 saw periodic use throughout the summers of the 80s and 90s until being retired to the owner's warehouse in late 1998. From 1998 until earlier this year, the car sat, top-down, in the back corner of that very warehouse. We asked why he stored the car with the top down; the owner said, well, the last time I drove it it was nice out. You've got to love that! The car wasn't parked due to any mechanical issues or anything, as a matter of fact it was parked (and still remains) in nothing shy of nearly-new condition. Now, after almost twenty years of collecting dust in that warehouse (which is heated), the time has come to cut the 911 loose. Since pushing the car out of storage, and man what a cool experience that was, we've given the car a thorough inspection and tended to a number of items. Items that we've addressed to bring the car back to proper running and driving order are as follows
- Drain and refill fuel tank
- Replace fuel pump, fuel pump relay, and fuel filter
- Replace hood and bonnet struts
- Replace tires with Goodyear Eagle Sports (we also have the originals
- Replace battery with Interstate MTP-91/T6
- Change oil and filter
- Replace steering column bushing
- Evacuate and recharge R12 air conditioning
- Clean, clean, clean, clean, cleannnnnnn
The car will be sold with complete documentation. This includes original window sticker (see photo) with sale price of $40,555, the dealer's pre-delivery inspection report, owner's manual, warranty & maintenance booklet with stamped customer identification card, spare key, receipts for oil changes and battery changes throughout the late 80s and early 90s, as well as a receipt for the services we've completed at our shop, Albany Auto Chicago
A little dust never hurt anybody! Once trailering the car back to our shop, we blasted the dust off with compressed air then washed, buffed, and waxed the car. And wow, what a result! Guards red paint presents phenomenally well. There are no spots of touch up on this car; as confirmed with an elcometer, paint is 100% original. There are some very, very light chips on the lower front valence from 9,000 miles of road use, but no scratches, scuffs, or anything of the sort. There is one more chip next to the Porsche crest on the hood, as well on one on the driver's door crease just opposite the door handle. Other than those small chips, paint presents as-new. The original bottle of touch-up paint is still in the plastic and will come along with the car, not like it's needed however. Thanks to being stored indoors in a heated environment, weatherstripping and all rubber seals show no signs of age. All glass and light lenses are original and free of any cracks or clouding. Convertible top is in as-new condition as well, as the car has been top-down for just about it's entire life. No worries about the clear plastic rear window though, that part of the top was left unzipped, so there's no crease or yellowing in the plastic. Black boot cover is in
