    This superb bit of German engineering was responsible for one of those rare moments in life when you discover something remarkable! There I was in a previous role as a classic car auction company owner and viewing an old MGC on a farm in Essex, when we drove down a country lane past what looked like an old church from a Hammer House of Horrors movie, that was obviously now in private hands judging by the assortment of old cars half covered by undergrowth out front and the big “Keep Out” signs. But after consulting with my colleague, who was more used to ignoring these things and knocking on doors, we drove in and pulled the doorbell chain. How surprised was I when a friend of mine from 20 odd years ago answered the door! That is how I know the entire history of this rare 1983 Porsche 928S.

There are 3 folders full of bills and things like its old MOT certificates documenting its life while only having 2 former keepers in all that time.

Work to date: New drivers side floor, heater chanel, rear frame hanger and rear wing . Replaced front to rear internal brake pipe, refurbished pedal assembly, new petrol tank and door hinges repaired along with lower door panels. Future work planed will consist of removal of any further rust using quality panels, a complete retrim in the up graded “basket weave” to the seating, new original door cards and roof lining. New chrome work through out and a fresh professional respray in the original blue ( this car even has the original supplying dealer sticker still in the back window!). Plus a full mechanical […]
