1980 Porsche 924 Turbo Series 1

This was purchased by the former keeper around ten years ago with the intention of putting it back on the road and using it but circumstances changed and it has sat in his barn for many years…

We have a bill of sale from ‘Romans’ of Guildford road, Pirbright, Surrey for £13,555.00 dated on the 11/12/1980 – it has the same reg number of SEC 110V on the invoice.

 It’s only had four owners from new, fortunately the former keeper did some digging and managed to find out some of the previous owners details which adds to the history very nicely. We have a few old MOTs from the 90s that backs up the mileage of 52,912, we also have some receipts for parts and repair work that were done in the 90s. In 2013 it did have a new timing belt, fuel filter, oil filter and a service.

It does run and drive with all the gears working fine, it accelerates well with the turbo kicking in fine and the brakes all work well. However it does run slightly lumpy, it takes some throttle to get it started but once running it does idle but it is very lumpy! Here’s a link of a video of the car and it running – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX2zOkCrikM

The bodywork is in exceptional condition for its age with no rust of any significance, front footwells are fine, cills are good, chassis etc.. However due to a leak from the battery, acid had leaked and caused a nasty whole through the battery tray but someone has welded a plate over the top so the battery sits nicely but left the inner area as is so the fuse box is loose and that area is still corroded. It hasn’t effected the footwell at all. (You can view more detailed photos our website – including the damage that’s been caused)

The interior is brown with pacha, the carpets are very faded and it would benefit from a refurb but it can be used as is. The passengers seat is loose and will need securing back in with screws.

The Spare wheel is very much intact and it comes with its original tool kit.

The tyres hold good air and the wheels are in good condition for its age.
