WOW! This 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera just arrived on a truck from Chicago. This was a trade in at a Mercedes-Benz dealership in Chicago recently. Our friends at this dealership know us as a place that is interested in this sort of thing, actively buying interesting cars from around the country.
While many new car dealerships would rather not have convertibles in their inventories going into Winter, much less vintage and classic cars… at Sears Imports, we cater to all sorts of motoring tastes and we know a great car when we see one. So, we purchased this car from our dealer friend in Chicago and had it shipped here to Minneapolis. It just arrived today.
This car has just under 35,000 original miles (see photo of odometer below). It is a 1984 model, the first year for the 3.2 liter flat six motor which replaced the 3.0 liter motor used in the 911 SC models between 1977 and 1983. This color is called “Platinum Metallic” with brown leather interior, it also has 16″ color matched alloy wheels. This car cost just over $41,000 when new in 1984. Of course it has the 5 speed manual transmission.
I am still learning about the history of the car, I need to speak with our GM, the gentleman who purchased the car, to get all the details, but looking at the Carfax it looks like the car was originally sold to Oklahoma by a Texas Porsche dealer, more recently it looks like it resided in Lake Geneva, WI… a Summer getaway for the well to do from Chicago. I will post more history when I learn more about the car.
The interior and exterior are in excellent condition, there are no dash cracks (so common on these older 911s if not garage kept), the leather seats are in excellent condition, carpet is very clean and unsoiled, no weird smells on the interior. The top is in excellent condition, the back window is generally clear with some light scuffing, but overall, very nice. The top boot is present with the car as well as the car’s tool kit and original owner’s manual.
Based on the stellar, original condition and low miles of this classic 911, the price is $26,900. Sears Imports Stock#20113, call me for more details.
