1978 911 SC Targa Turbo body RUF   Price: 50000
In late July I received an email from RUF Germany. After three years of investigating this car, Alois Ruf himself confirmed that this car was not done in Germany by him in the 80's. The only clues are the stamping's on the engine case. Redline verified it has high compression pistons. Someone must've built this motor and labeled it this way. The mystery of who did this work continues. I was told there are other RUF dealers around the world. Any one could have done the work on car with front spoiler #144 before it came to California. Redline service has this car road ready to drive anywhere. This is a uniquely built 1978 911 SC Targa. This car was equipped with authentic Ruf components and a handful of high quality upgrades. This 911 SC was sold new for Germany delivery before making its way to California. It now resides in Tucson, AZ and is being sold in turn key condition. This Targa is the beneficiary of a professional respray in its original color of Petrol Blue Metallic. The paint stands in good driver-grade condition with minor blemishes. All four fenders along with the Targa top have been equipped with high quality pressure die cast fiberglass panels. Some slight cracking in the driverís side fender due to a previous repair. Appears no panels have ever been replaced on the vehicle since it was built. Additional features include: H4 headlights, and led lighting, solid Targa top, exterior color matched headlight rings and Targa bar, Ruf outside mirrors, front oil cooler bumper, steel Turbo factory early engine deck lid, deleted rear bumper guards, custom twin outlet muffler, upgraded Bilstein shocks, and black painted 15X9X11" Gotti polished aluminum racing wheels that wear BF Goodrich drag radials in good condition. Inside this 911, you will find features such as black vintage cloth Recaro front seats, rear seat delete, a MOMO Ruf sport steering wheel, 7,400rpm redline tachometer, custom air-conditioning with three condensers. The driver side seat is equipped with a heater, air pump bladder and three-way adjustable movement setting. As for the condition of the interior, it is above average for its age and mileage. Power comes from a CofA numbers matching 3.2L air-cooled flat-six engine that produces approximately 235HP and is connected to a 5-speed manual transmission. A recent engine-out service was performed, lightweight aluminum fly-wheel replacement, and clutch. The seller also performed a cylinder leakage test which found all six cylinders to be under 5% of loss. The car is currently equipped with high compression pistons 1973 RS 2.7L camshafts, tall gears, PMO 50 mm carburetors, and a modified Bosch distributor. The original numbers matching transmission and the engine are in excellent running condition. Ready to drive anywhere. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IhUAq1yfyo.
