“A previous owner put it through a total restoration in 2002 that resulted in a widebody roadster with custom framework and body modifications, an upgraded drivetrain, and fresh red paint,” the listing states. “Exterior attributes of this custom 911 include fog lamps, flared fenders, and a whale tail rear spoiler. The seller notes that the exterior needs some cosmetic attention and that a new rear plastic window has been installed.” 

This Porsche has a two-seat interior featuring black vinyl bucket seats with matching door panels, padded dash and floor carpeting. Amenities include an AM/FM/cassette radio, an analog clock, and auxiliary gauges.

An rear-mounted 350cid V8 engine was installed by the previous owner approximately 20-years ago. The upgraded engine is paired with a Porsche 930 five-speed manual transaxle that sends power to the rear wheels.

The sale includes a clear Wisconsin title in the seller’s name.

This Porsche’s auction ends on August 3, 2022, at 12:00 p.m. (PDT)
