Up for sale is a 1986 Porsche 944. As the listing states the car is in excellent condition, nd i have put a significant amount of work into the car because i planned on keeping it. Unfortunately life happens and i promised my wife i'd at least try to sell it. Below is a history as well as a description of the car etc.:
History:I bought the car locally and it spent its entire life in Long Island near New York. The original owner drove the car until 2000, t which point he became ill. He gave the car to his son, ho owned a shop, owever the car sat for 14 years. I bought the car last year (2015) from them with 25,381 miles. I had the car towed, t the time it started, ut didn't run great.
Items replaced:Planning on keeping the car for a long period of time, started working on the car. I replaced the following items, ll parts were either ordered from Pelican parts, r 944Online, nd either OEM or Porsche specifically). All parts were changed from 25,382 miles. I drove the mile to make sure the car ran OK.
All of the seals on the front of the engine are new. The front crank, alance shaft-upper and lower, il cooler, nd camshaft dust seal. All of the sprockets are also new, s i changed the water pump for the updated version. As it stands, he belts (auxilliary, iming, ower steering, C, alance shaft), aterpump, ll rollers and tensioners are new and work perfect.
I took the head off the car to make sure everything was running correctly, nd cleaned out the intake. After i put everything back together, his is what was replaced: Head Gasket, amshaft Tower gasket, ear camshaft gasket, ntake manifold gaskets. The head and cam tower were cleaned, nd new valve seals were put in.
I then had the injectors rebalanced by Witchhunter, nd replaced the old fuel lines with stainless steel braided and thermal coating to prevent them from drying out (you can see them in the picture). I also replaced the throttle position sensor because it was faulty from sitting so long. I rebuilt the throttle body with the seal kit from Arnox.
I replaced the master cylinder for the brakes, s well as the master and slave cylinder for the clutch they are both new. They weren't working very well after sitting for so long. I rebuilt all 4 calipers with porsche seals, ut in new rotors, nd brakes. Lastly i put in stainless steel brake lines because i didn't trust the old ones that were sitting.
I then replaced the fuel level sensor, lushed the fuel tank, leaned the strainer, nd replaced the gaskets in the fuel tank.The old ones were completely warped for sitting so long. I flushed the transmission fluid with OEM fluid.
I have cleaned all the grounds on the car with Deoxit, verything electrical works excellent. The spark plug wires, gnition coil, nd distributor cap are all new.
The previous owners son had installed a Kenwood head unit, o the original is not available, nd there is an old escort radar detector built into dash where the cube should be. It's at least 20 years old, nd is hooked up to a sensor in the front of the car that is disconnected. There is also an alarm module from Kenwood on the drivers side door for an alarm that is about 20 years old, ther then that there aren't any modifications that i found.
The Bad:There are two things wrong with the car cosmetically, he first is the sunroof. The previous owner stored it in the factory bag which got wet and had the paint stick to it. I had the sunroof repainted, nd there is a shade difference between the paints. You can notice it upclose by not far away. The second is that the car has scratches in a few places. They are not deep but none the less there, here are also 3 small dings on the hood, ne on the rear, nd one on the front quarter panel. None if these are very noticeable, nd you have to look at the right angle, ut they are typical for a car that was driven.
Mechanically, here is nothing wrong with the car. The AC however hasn't been charged. The compressor works, nd the previous owner said that it worked under his ownership, ut it will need the older type refrigerant and i haven't filled it up because i didn't drive it in the summer with the windows up.
The Good:While the car is not a concurs sitter, he paint is original and is excellent overall. It shines brilliantly after a polish. The car is also the smoothest i have ever driven, hough it is 30 years old. It is mechanically superb. The interior leather is excellent, as no staining, ears, r markings. The new owner will also get the timing belt tools for tensioning from Arnox. All of the items on the car that i did not change are original. The mileage is actual miles, loaded a picture of the spark plugs i changed out, he wire says made in W. Germany, hich hasn't been a country since 1989.
