Porsche 911S Turbo Look

From what previous owner tells me this is the 1982 3.0L motor with Webber carbs using MSD ignition Mated to a 915- 5speed manual transaxle.

Painted calipers when waiting on tires.

more painted calipers.

I painted the center caps while waiting for the new tires to come in. The caps need to be replaced to be perfect as a fes are scratched pretty deep.

One of the wheels has had some polishing time spent on it. I will have to work hard on the others to get them close.

Decent anodized look for the Fake Fuches.

Drove it home slowly. Previous owner drove it too hard with the front and rear alignment and ride height out of spec. Add alignment and ride height adjustment to the list of theings to do.

This is the first day home after a good washing and a little detail. More detail and waxing later.

On my way to see a customer. I have seen this car at this place before but not for sale. I stopped to look at it and new I had to have it. It is not all correct but the body is put together well and ran good so a deal was made.

By looking closer the wheels apear to be ARE (American Racing) about 16 X 8 at all four corners. Actual Fuches should be staggered 16 X 8 front 16 X 9 or 10 rear.

The interior is pretty nice. New headliner recovered seats are a little dirty but are comfortable. The door panels and carpets show some wear but they may can be cleaned up and detailed later.
