This Porsche 924 Turbo recently visited Racing Restorations for a steering system rebuild and full repaint in original Silver Metallic. A left-hand drive car which had lived all of its life in southern Italy, the paint had already been redone once, but quite cheaply, so was now all flaking off.

For sale on behalf of a customer: 1988 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera G50 Coupe
We’ve known this car for a good few years. In 2009, it was restored by Racing Restorations with work including new front wings, kidney bowls, flawless repairs to the sills and some other air-cooled 911 rust hot spots. All the work was photographed.
The Guards Red Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera had a full glass-out respray after the rust repairs and still looks terrific: great testament to the quality of work. SVP Porsche carried out a top-end rebuild on the engine while the 911 was in restoration, and we also stripped, powder-coated and rebuilt the suspension with all new bushes and Bilstein dampers.
The owner is quite a fastidious chap, so his 911 has all the bits you want to see on a late 3.2 Carrera, including excellent interior trim with electric sunroof, and the desirable factory sports seats: electrically adjustable and trimmed in perforated black leather. It also has rare and sought-after three-point rear seat belts, perfect for junior passengers. The original four-spoke steering wheel is also present and correct.
An original 1980s car phone handset is attached to the centre console as a period nod. It’s no longer functional but looks cool. Spare wheel, compressor and Porsche tool kit are all under the bonnet. All that needs doing to this car is driving it.
Having inspected a few air-cooled 911s this year for various people, this one stands out. It’s available for inspection here at Racing Restorations: call Robert on 07941 358833 to know more.
Getting deep into rust repair on this Porsche 911 at the minute. It’s a 1974, 2.7-litre car: the second RHD impact bumper 911 ever built by Porsche.
The client is a UK owner, very keen on early Porsches. Factory colour on this one is Emerald Green which is a really great shade.
Step 1 is to sandblast the chassis, so we can see what we’re dealing with. It’s not as bad as we’ve seen! Certainly repairable.
