(I'm shaking as I write this post!)

I feel like I'm putting one of my kids up for adoption..........it's definitely not something that comes easily. I am however having to weigh up certain options and thought I'd reach out to the PFA family prior to listing the car on the 'open' market. I never thought I'd look or think to sell it, as a result it's been pampered but alas the time to move her on maybe nigh...................

Here is the advert listing that I've put together, bit of a ramble but hopefully informative to any potential purchaser's; 

It is with much reluctance that I am offering my 1990, 964 C2 manual coupe for sale. 

This opportunity to obtain a rare and desirable 911 is only due to a new purchase on the horizon and a lack of space for secure storage, but by no means is it a desperate sale though. 

I’m a devout Porsche enthusiast and this particular 964 has had all the necessary money spent on all the right things, ready to just get in, drive and enjoy. Items include;

Electrical items including new stereo (period looking but with including Bluetooth connectivity), new speakers throughout (using factory mesh), refreshed rear tail lights and centre reflector including LED globes (no pink and no cracks), LED globes to dash interface (as standard it can be quite dark, not ideal for an evening commute), new battery, starter motor and leads. Everything electrical is as it should be – perfect.

The car is currently running KW suspension (RS spec.) with cup 1 17” wheels. These have been custom powder coated ‘white’ and are shod in Michelin Pilot Spot tyres (N spec as per factory recommendation) and perform as you would expect – amazing.

In addition to the upgraded wheels & suspension all 4 wheel bearings have been replaced. This can be quite a costly exercise and is quite typical for 964’s. No need to worry though Loui from Motion Automotive has taken care of that for you. 

The interior is 100% completely original including the original delivery floor mats. The car was optioned with ‘soft leather’ and it’s as comfortable as it looks, the ultimate tourer. 

Mechanically the car has recently completed its 200km major service thanks to Spencer Harrison at Harrisons RRR. This is an involved job on a 964 and can be quite costly but again that’s been taken care of by one of the best AC Porsche mechanics around. 

The car also benefits from an aftermarket exhaust, chip, later model cup mirrors and drilled brake rotors that all together make this one of the ultimate & purposefully modified street 964's around. 

Lastly, to complete the package, all of the original parts are included with the sale. This includes the original delivery D90 wheels, suspension, flag mirrors, exhaust – everything you’d need to revert back to original factory specification. I think the car is perfect as is but given the value of these cars you can sleep soundly knowing that when the time is right to roll this into a museum you will tick all the boxes in terms of originality – be sure to enjoy it in the meantime though!

This car is a peach. It’s not a concourse car, it’s a driver, to be used as Ferry intended. The rise in 964 values I believe has been due to these being the ultimate usable classic 911. Bluetooth and cruise control allow you to commute in style whilst still being able to enjoy the rewards that a period analogue sports car (especially a 911) can deliver. It really is the perfect balance of both worlds where you can have a usable & practical classic car.  

The car is currently being prepared for sale including an extensive detail. I am reluctant to list with a price at this stage but am open to be contacted by seriously interested parties. As mentioned previously, this is not a desperate sale so please don't contact me unless your prepared to engage in a serious discussion and are in a position to purchase if indeed a deal is done. 

I would also appreciate if we could keep the thread to interested parties. Feel free to contact via PM if you wish to express interest and I will respond with answers to any further questions you may have. 

Cheers, Hugh.

NOOOOOO Hugh!

Great looking car, stance and those wheels are perfect on this. I guess I should say GLWS... do not let this go unless someone is paying you very good money.

Noooooooooooooooooooo........................

Don Johnson called and he wants his car back?

Seriously though, good luck with the sale, not that you'll need it.

And I look forward to what's next!

Is this a white for white swap over?

GLWS

If that's the case Hugh, surely it's gotta be one of those white 987 Spyder's currently for sale, no? :D

Hugh

The Kid wishes you the best of luck with the sale.

Hell you don't need luck, the car is absolutely drop dead gorgeous and will sell its self.

Let me complement you on the presentation of the car - that's the way do it.  

Staggered about the number of big buck offerings on car sales that look like they've just completed the Birdsville track!

What are the owners thinking?

It would look look good next to the Black Nein in my garage........... but wait then I'd have two precious cars.

GLWS doubt there's a more fastidiously maintained 964 out there.  By the way, you don't mention Aus delivered in the ad wording although it is in the certificate from Porsche.

now, what could be on the horizon......

Just checked the lotto numbers from last night.  Bloody lotto gods obviously not in my corner this week.  If you haven't heard from me by Thursday morning Hugh I guess no lotto win for me this week and you will have to sell it to someone else.  I am really cheesed off with Mid Week Lotto, I was really hoping to win this week and buy VHF911

Thanks for the (mostly positive ;)) comments guys, its definitely mixed emotions and not a decision I have taken lightly. Its amazing how emotionally attached you can become to something like a car, seriously much harder to commit too than I would have imagined..............

Anyway, as it would happen I haven't had much time to dwell on it as the car has now been sold. :o

I'm pleased to announce however, that it has been sold to a local, deeply Porsche affected gent whom I've been assured will look after it in the manner it has been accustomed too! I'm saddened to be moving it on but am very glad that it will be remaining local and I have even been granted visitation rights. :)

Its definitely going to be sadly missed, not looking forward to breaking the news to my little guys................

As to whats next...............well, that's yet to be decided. :ph34r::rolleyes:
