  1. Hi all Hoping you can help, although technically not an IB question. I got offered a car I couldn’t refuse (a rhd 72 with a 2.4 spec’d up to 2.9 with a lot of rsr parts). The engine had about £20k worth of work by Bob Watson and it still seems strong, however the engine needs some tlc, and one of the jobs is the tinware, which looks rough. Would anyone have recommendations on the best place to send off tinware to be Power Coated. Ideally good quality at a sensible price and a relatively fast turnaround?
  2. Thanks all. These are seriously pricey. My realistic budget is more around the £40k mark. I expect after lockdown much more will get listed; hopefully an Oak Green SC might come up
  3. Thanks. That’s been listed for a while. There are a few moss green around. It’s a nice colour but the oak green has a 70s feel none of the other Greens have. It’s the 70s vibe I really like
  4. That’s interesting to know. I know they are mainly for newer cars but wasn’t aware that I might not even be able to get one for a 1980. I did wonder how much of the form really needs completing but it doesn’t state anything as optional and also says I can get rejected; so I want to try and complete as much as I can. As DVLA are focused on helping key workers, I haven’t been able to get the paperwork done and can’t call for help. If someone had a V5C I expect I can copy a lot from there for this V55/5
  5. Hi all Apologies for asking, but I am still trying to get my SC that I imported from Ireland, put back on a UK V5C as it started its life back in 1980. Completing the V55/5 required is really hard, and it tells me to get a lot of the information from the Certificate of Conformity. Now I don’t want to pay for one just to get details I might need for the form If there is another way, and wondered if anyone had one for a SC Coupe or a v5c (blanked out any personal info) that I can use to simply copy the fields I need? Really appreciate if anyone has one they wouldn’t mind PMing me.
  6. Came across this post on Instagram yesterday but unfortunately it’s not for sale.
  7. Thanks all. I like Oak green as it’s very 70s and a very obvious green. Miss Green just doesn’t have that retro feel. Plus it’s lhd. I’ve found 3 or 4 Oak Green in lhd, but going to wait for a rhd. One will pop up
  8. I’d seen that one. It is lovely, but certainly a streeeeeeeetch too far

    SC vs SC Sport

    That’s interesting. Given the SC was meant to be a more ‘affordable’ Porsche for a wider market; I can imagine people might have wanted to save that amount of money. But more so, I expect a lot of people probably didn’t want the huge rear spoiler, so given it was a pre-defined package, you’d have to remove the package if you didn’t want the spoiler and then add any of the bits you did want (if any at all). Would be interested to know then, roughly what split were sold with Sports package vs those that weren’t.

    That makes sense. So whilst factory fitted, SC Sports doesn’t have a factory code. It was simply a pre-defined options package selected by the dealer on their system, which they were probably on commission to sell I wonder how much that pack was? Also still not 100% what was in it; rear wiper and sports seats have come up on a few posts I read as part of the ‘Sports’, but do seem odd. I do wonder if the seats reference was simply the cloth option as mine has a cloth I believe was typically from the 924 or 928 and turbo I think it was (see photo of combo).

    Is there a difference between a ‘Factory Option’ vs a ‘Group of Standard Options packaged together at dealership system level’, which is what others refer to it as. I guess not.

    That’s my SC (which I believe had the sports pack) and as said; assume Sports came with the tea tray and not the all rubber for example.

    Here are a few articles I was reading about specs. Top one suggests SC Sport is the most sought after? https://www.porscheclubgb.com/regions-registers/registers/classic/911-sc/porsche-911-sc-buyers-guide https://philipraby.co.uk/directory-porsche-911/porsche-911sc https://www.classicandsportscar.com/features/buyers-guide-porsche-911-1974-89

    SC vs SC Sport

    Hi all I was hoping someone might be able to clarify what is sometimes referenced as an ‘SC Sport’ which was in the U.K. only. Looking around and bringing together what people have said, that it’s just an SC, however they sold a factory Sports Package in the U.K. that consisted of: The larger turbo whaletail rear spoiler Deep rubber front spoiler Bilstein gas dampers 16-inch Fuchs wheels in black Rear Wiper Sports seats (Not sure how they differ, although mine seem to have a turbo cloth and half leather) Is that correct? Anything missing? And if so what are the difference with the seats; was it just the cloth/leather combo? Also, I assume there is no more demand/value for an SC factory with a factory Sports Package? Finally, given the options are not exactly performance related (maybe the shocks) then calling it an ‘SC Sport’ is a bit of a reach!? and should just still to calling it an ‘SC’.
  15. Haha Thank you for the thought. Recession’s coming; I’m sure a lot of 911’s will hit the market in the coming months; hopefully I’ll be able to grab a green one from someone that’s sat on one not using it.
