3.0-Liter Flat-Six 5-Speed Manual Transaxle Safari-Style Build SC RS-Style Bumpers & Light Pod w/Hella LEDs Ducktail Engine Lid 964-Style Taillights Elephant Racing Safari Suspension Kit 16" Fuchs Wheels GTS Classic Vallelunga Seats w/Custom Inserts To view all photos including the underside follow this link, https://sunvalleyautosales.zenfolio.com/p673840648 This 1978 Porsche 911SC has been modified in the style of a period rally car with SC RS-style bumpers, a ducktail engine lid, 964-style taillights, a light pod with Hella LEDs, an Elephant Racing suspension kit, GTS Classic seats with custom fabric inserts, and more. Power comes from a 3.0-liter flat-six paired with a five-speed Type 915 manual transaxle. We purchased this 911SC in March of 2021, prior to that it last changed hands in 2014. Service performed in 2020 included refinishing the 16 "Fuchs wheels, installation of a headliner and sunroof trim panel, a new dash pad cover, RS-style carpets, and brake pads as well as an oil change and alignment. The 16? Fuchs wheels were refinished in August 2020 and wear BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A K02 tires with 2017 date codes. The car is lifted on an Elephant Racing Safari suspension kit, and front braking is handled by Carrera S aluminum calipers with replacement pistons and seals as well as braided stainless steel hoses. New brake pads and front wheel bearings were installed under the previous ownership. A leather-wrapped MOMO Prototipo steering wheel frames a central tachometer flanked by a 150-mph speedometer and gauges for fuel level, oil level, oil temperature, and oil pressure. Under Sun Valley Auto Sales ownership we added, Porsche Classic Stereo, and added four speakers and two tweeters with a subwoofer behind the passenger seat. Amazing sound system! We installed the custom brush guard complete with the tow rope. The roof rack was added and power run to the Rigid light bar, complete with an interior switch. Prior to our ownership, there was no heat. The heater box, vents, and ducting had been removed. This coupe now has heat complete with heat exchangers ducting and vents. The wipers were non-operational and they have been repaired and are now in working order. The turn signals and headlights were also INOP. The headlights have been interchanged with wiring and lights from a 964. Turn signals are new and now work as they should. The seats were bolted to the floor and we added rails so the seats are now adjustable. Our German mechanic spent a day going through the underside with a wrench tightening bolts. This Safari now drives as tight as a Porsche should drive. The engine is very strong thanks to the rebuild. We adjusted the timing, cleaned the throttle valve housing, and adjusted the fuel distributor. The air-cooled 3.0-liter flat-six is said to have been rebuilt at 140k miles by EBS Racing of Reno, Nevada with new main bearings, Goetze piston rings, gaskets, 964 camshafts, hydraulic chain tensioners, and sending units along with cylinder head and valve work. A Bosch battery and spark plugs have also been fitted, the alternator rebuilt, the oil cooler ultrasonically cleaned, and aftermarket engine mounts installed. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Type 915 manual transaxle that was reportedly overhauled by 911 Design approximately 2k miles ago. A Sachs sport clutch is also said to have been installed Features include a sunroof, an SC RS-style hood pod with Hella LED lights, 964-style taillamps, aftermarket mirrors.
