The body received a full restoration in Slate grey, S spec trims to the front and rear bumpers.
Interior was completely re-trimmed with an S carpet set and Recaro style sports seats and matching RS style door cards.
Brakes are uprated with a larger master cylinder and alloy S caliper.
Suspension, Koni dampers, 25mm rear torsion bars, front and rear aDunstable anti-roll bars.
6” x 15” Fuchs wheels restored with a RSR style finish and period tyres.
The engine is a 1973 2.4 S running its original Mechanical fuel injection with potentially with over 190 bhp.
This is a beautiful example of a 3.2 Carrera, stunning in Iris Blue metallic with blue leather and there are no spoilers to ruin the 911 lines.
The Porsche has been recently recommissioned and a sympathetic restoration carried out on this Cabriolet after it was laid up for a number of years.
The engine was removed, completely rebuilt (not just the top end) and detailed so it now looks and runs how it left the factory.
While the engine was out a stainless steel exhaust system was fitted.
Brake calipers have been rebuilt, new discs, pads and hoses.
The Fuchs wheels have been restored and new tyres fitted.
The interior is in a lovely original condition, the steering wheel has been re-trimmed in its original blue leather.
The cabriolet hood has just been replaced along with the tonneau cover.
Being a USA car the underside is completely corrosion free, showing no signs of rust or of ever being welded.
Spare wheel, jack and tool kit are present, finished off with a new boot carpet.
As you would imagine the Porsche is now a joy to drive, with a sweet engine and a crisp changing gearbox.
