Porsche Of The Day: 1981 Porsche 911SC Backdate Custom

This 1981 Porsche 911SC Coupe underwent a custom backdate-style restoration that spared no expense on high-end equipment. The Coupe was completely disassembled and stripped down to bare metal, then modified with steel fender flares, fiberglass RS-style bumpers, classic pop-out rear quarter windows, a 964 decklid/spoiler, and a backdated nose section with an RSR-style center-fill hood.

It was then painted in the early 1970s Porsche color of Signal Orange and fitted with modern projector-style headlights, aftermarket black sport mirrors, hood tie-downs, and aftermarket Fuchs wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport tires.

Inside, the cabin was redone with lightweight RS carpeting, a custom rear seat delete, a new OEM headliner, a Racemark steering wheel, and a pair of leather MonteCarlo seats from GTS Classics.

The 3.0-liter engine was rebuilt and upgraded with Nickies 100mm cylinders and 10.5:1 JE pistons, Dougherty Racing DC40 camshafts and rockers, an Electromotive XDI Direct ignition system, a PMO 46mm carburetor kit, and a stainless-steel exhaust with headers.

Power is transferred to the rear wheels through a rebuilt 5-speed manual gearbox with a RennShift shifter, Stomski shift coupler, Centerforce dual friction clutch kit, and Patrick Motorsports lightweight flywheel.
