Over the last two weeks, I’ve begun telling the story of the newest addition to the SCM fleet. I bought a 1975 911 S Sportomatic from the Hershey swap meet corral last October.
The car was represented as having 47,000 original miles. It was originally purchased from Holbert Porsche in Warrington, PA, on July 17, 1975. License plate was 12V784, VIN 9115201489, engine number 6459078.
I paid $46,000 for the car and on October 9 it was on a carrier headed to Avant-Garde Collection in Portland. On November 29 the car was dry-ice cleaned there. On Feb 1, the car arrived at A&P Specialties in Portland, Al Blanchard’s Porsche repair shop.
Over the years Al has ministered to all of my Porsches: 1968 911L, 1978 911 SC, 2000 Boxster S, 2000 996 Twin Turbo, 2001 911 Carrera and 1991 928 S4.
Here are the results of the PPI he performed: https://2un.me/s0rvmtzx
I know what my reaction is, but I’m most interested in hearing yours.
As a straight, low-miles, handsome car with an interesting original interior, I am okay with what I paid. But I have some decisions to make.
What courses of action would you recommend at this point? Please post them below.
P.S. If you happen to have any information about this particular car, please post it in this blog, as well. Thanks.
