Autobahn Porsche - 2023 Porsche Classic Restoration Challenge - Almost There

We’re almost there!!!

In our last update, we worked on getting the wiring in our 1978 Porsche 911SC for the Porsche Classic Restoration Challenge(https://www.autobahnporsche.com/journal/2023-porsche-classic-restoration-challenge-wiring/). A few days later we took it out of the shop for a little preview at our Autobahn Porsche Coffee & Donuts event(https://www.autobahnporsche.com/journal/autobahn-porsche-coffee-donuts/).

Today, the interior is getting put back together. The gorgeous-looking “Cork” interior was restored by cleaning, restitching, and giving it some major TLC to make it look factory fresh. The dashboard looked great when we got it a year ago, but the restoration gave it a bit more pop. The seats and carpeting were thoroughly cleaned and brought back to life. Gone is the patina from having a 40-year-old car.

On top of that, the air-cooled flat-six engine has been put back in the engine bay… but more on that in the next update.

For now, swipe through our photo album to see how far we’ve come!
