Well Sorted: 1979 Porsche 911 SC With Sunroof

This Porsche comes in a rare factory color the seller says is a special order called "medium ivory". It looks great against the blacked-out factory Fuchs. Porsche cars look best in earth tones or dark colors.

The 911 SC was introduced in 1978 as a new version of the 911. It featured a rear-mounted 3.0-litre 6-cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission Output was around 180-188 horsepower.

The seller says they've been the second owner for the last 10 years, and the car now comes with new tires, new window seals, new brakes and smog tailpipe delete.

They say the mileage is 108k. I love high mileage Porsches. It means they been driven, and if they are still running, most likely maintained along the way too. Much better than garage queen cars that start hurting the more you use them and keep you hostage to around the block, and definitely better than neglected units.

I like the Porsche logo on the non-airbag steering wheel, you don't see that often and it was later deleted with the addition of the airbag.

They say everything works great, including the air conditioning (what is it about the Porsche 911 and a/c issues anyways?). Even if the a/c didn't work, the rare factory sunroof option will cool you off. I love the idea of a sunroof on a 911, although purists will probably scoff at the slight loss of structural rigidity.

Cosmetically, they only point to a few flaws: some chips in the front spoiler and wear on the driver's seat. No big deals.

With a car this nice, the only real question is: why would anyone want to get rid of it!?

Find it for sale here in South Central Massachusettes for $17,900.
