Brown SC

Recommended Posts

£30k makeover would bring it back up to top condition but still have 300k + on odo if resale value matters down the road. More suited to someone with engine &/or bodywork skills who is looking for a keeper.

Driven without oil - engine needs a rebuild. Aim high on the repair costs for this one.

Trying to find a good used SC crank is almost impossible.

Unless a lot is done in-house £30k maybe too light to fix all the mechanics ( engine, gearbox, brakes, etc.) and the body work.

Could be a good base for a backdate Or track mule.

IB's in this price bracket just don't make financial sense, even doing the bulk of the body repairs/mechanical on a DIY basis and just farming out the paint. The parts prices are simply too high now and likewise the repaint costs. Almost always better off buying something decent to begin with even if you are building something to suit your own tastes.

Nice colour but wow, already at 15k, buy the best one you can afford this will be an expensive resto for sure.

Some of the big Indies claim to have access to known good cranks - they are priced accordingly from memory. All will need reconditioning for peace of mind.

Love brown.

911 cranks are not easy to recondition.

Every day work for a good machinist. Rob Walker does it with his eyes shut. Sure there's others too

Not many do this work and Rob would probably be a bit upset if people thought what he did was easy.
