Lot #949.1 - This rare, Strosek Design custom wide-bodied Cabriolet features a power convertible top, leather interior and show-quality paint finish. It rides on 18" Turbo Twist wheels with Porsche crests and new Continental Extreme Contact tires with 90+% tread remaining. It is powered by a very strong 2.7-liter air-cooled flat 6-cylinder engine with 5-speed manual transmission. The list of reasons why driving enthusiasts love air-cooled Porsches is a long one, and for good reason. With the 911, Porsche set out to create a capable, durable and reliable sports car. To this day, there are few cars that deliver visceral driving excitement as well as Porsche 911s of all years and variants - the sounds they make and the connected road feel are unparalleled. Finished in a very elegant Arena Red metallic paint finish over a custom tan leather interior, this unique '76 model Porsche 911 boasts a professionally installed, and very uncommon, Strosek Design custom wide-body kit. The custom leather interior shows well with some visible signs of age. The interior also features a fully functional Strosek gauge cluster, billet shift knob and leather-trimmed dash. The Strosek custom wide-body cabriolet conversion was professionally installed at a cost of almost $22,000 in 2001. It has excellent body panel alignment and fit and finish, and the power convertible top is in great shape with no damage. It also has a Strosek rear deck spoiler. A significant mechanical service was performed in 2007. It has receipts, summary of work performed, full gasket replacement, air flow sensor, updated idler arms, tensioner update kit and more. Going down the road, this 76 Porsche 911 Cabriolet will inspire confidence in the driver. It is extremely well-sorted-out and in excellent mechanical condition, having received a high degree of care over the years. It sings beautifully with a signature Porsche air-cooled sound that will tantalize even the most discerning driver. This is a fantastic and unique vintage Porsche with custom touches. This 911 delivers.
