1980 Porsche 911

The car was bought from a mechanic friend in the Valley.

I believe that it came from somewhere in the middle of america, but live most of its life in California.
The car has new paint, redone front seats in leather, steering wheel recovered in leather, dash recovered in leather, back bottom cushions recovered in leather, back speaker panel redone in leather.
The car has new front and back window seals.
Its got 112k on the ODO.
Comes with spare, jack, tools, manual and soon enough a title…
The targa top was redone recently.
The motor is dry, and runs good but the cold start could be adjusted. When you first start the car it needs to warm up before running correctly.
Oil pressure is very good, tranny is solid and all syncors good.
Drives straight, brakes straight.

1972 Datsun 240z

The engine is stock, aside from the very rare triple Makuni carburetors and headers that make the car easily get up to 6 1/2 / Redline.

H4 headlights, and lense covers and new Koni wheels with preferred driver tires, new urethane bushings, 5 speed.

The car is a great driver, and feels like a tight 240 should.

The paint isn’t perfect, it’s got chips, and dings. The hood was re sprayed, and maybe the headlight covers but everything else seems original.

It has a little bubbling on the fender wells / dog legs.

The windshield has some pits, and the dash has some cracks.

The vehicle is located in Sunny California, but shipping in no problem.

1987 Porsche 911 G50

1987 G50 Silver / Black Porsche with 215K on the ODO.
The car runs, and drives great with amazing oil pressure.
The mechanic performed an engine compression / leak down test :
1) 100/96 4% at 180PSI
2) 100/89 11% at 182.5PSI
3) 100/94 6% at 185 PSI
4) 100/96 6% at 185PSI
5) 100/97 3% at 175PSI
6) 100/95 5% at 177.5PSi
The car comes with records of approx. 25k put into it from the last owner who had it since 1993.
I don’t see any signs of any accidents and the Carfax says the same.
As you already know, this car went through approx. 900 miles with me in 1 day. There are no mechanical issues. No rust (some dis-coloration under battery just needs to be cleaned out).
The AC blows ice cold, and the climate control works!!! Sports seats!!
The transmission shifts flawlessly.
The motor has a little bit of seeping, but is dry for the most part.
I would rate the second  coat paint job a 8.5/10 because some seals have overspray, and there is an area on the driver side rear quarter where there is some acrylic / water base mix happening. I tried really hard to take a photo, but its very hard to notice unless you are right at it looking for it. TINY.
There is a few more blemishes with the front bumper, and the sunroof / windshield seal with a little bit of flaking.
The interior is very clean, and well taken care of. I believe that part of the driver seat has been redone, but it is very nice still with minimal wear.
The car comes with 2 keys, manual, receipts, spare, jack.
