1985 3. 2 Carrera (ULEZ compliant next year)
Great value and great history
All-important engine and Gearbox rebuild + £1000s spent to keep it in great shape and driving as it should.
White Gold Metallic with Grey/ Green Interior with Pinstripe

A great spec (rare original options for a non-turbo - see Certificate of Authenticity), great colour and a great value driver's car. JZM looked after this car for 15 years for the previous owner who spent a whopping £50K+ on keeping it just how he wanted it, including all important engine rebuild (18, 000 miles ago) and gearbox rebuild (15, 000 miles ago), plus Turbo Steering Arm Conversion. Thousands of this spent on bodywork upkeep on common issues like sills and kidney bowls. I have had this 911 for five years and I spent another £9K on purchase; tidying it up and having a new Dansk Exhaust fitted, under body checked, steam cleaned and Wax Oiled. I've kept the car in premium storage but used it regularly. It has been looked after in my ownership by JAZ. Regularly serviced and MOT’d with no advisories in my ownership, no leaks, and drives great.
It has a great service history and huge file. I have been in touch with the enthusiast owner before the previous one (they were friends). He had the car for five years and it's clearly not an abused 911 which was sadly the case when these cars were cheaper. The V5 shows 11 owners but it seems some owners switched the car in and out of their businesses (which was common), so the history suggests a lot less owners. I have had the rear and front spoilers removed but they can come with the sale.
This is not a show car – but it’s in great condition for mileage and age. It all seems solid, and you'll see from the pictures, it presents really well for its age and the colour combination creates great interest. I have owned many 911s and I looked at many 3. 2s when buying this. This was just what I was looking for at the time - a well maintained, great value 911 that I could drive and not worry about, with a great 915 gearbox which I love for its considerable lightness over the G50 which makes it more sprightly.

Due to storage costs I've been reducing my number of cars and have now been daily-ing a 993. This 3. 2 holds a special place in my heart, it's been a great looking, super reliable jump-in-and-drive car. Since new it's been driven not cosseted - it wears it's miles with pride - and it seems all the owners have loved it and looked after it as I have. It's time for somebody else to do the same.
