Footnotes

  • This manual transmission Porsche 968 served as a demonstrator at Strattons, Wilmslow before being sold in August 1994 (at 10,000 miles) to its first private owner, Mr Palmer, a Nottinghamshire garden centre proprietor, for his wife. In December 2010 the car passed via a dealer to the current vendor, only its second private owner in 20 years, having been overhauled by Northway Porsche that summer. In the 16 years with Mrs Palmer, the car covered 32,000 miles, an average of 2,000 miles annually. It was regularly serviced by Merlin Porsche of Nottingham (8/1994 to 4/2002) then The Porsche Centre, Nottingham until April 2007.

    The vendor commissioned another overhaul in February 2011 at 911SBD Ltd, a London-based Porsche specialist (odometer reading: 42,900 miles). In June 2011, 911SBD replaced the differential bearings and Connollised the leather seats, then rebuilt the gearbox in January 2012. Over £6,000 has been spent with 911SBD.

    Since early 2012 (at 46,000 miles) the Porsche has been loaned to The Classic Car Club in London who have kept it serviced, MoT'd and garaged. A popular car with Club members, it has covered a further 19,000 miles, making the current total 65,000. In 2012 a new clutch slave cylinder, reconditioned 30,000-mile-old clutch and a new oil seal/bearing were fitted by Design 911 of London at a cost of over £1,500. Described as in generally excellent condition, the car is offered with MoT/tax to January 2014, Swansea V5C and all bills since it left Strattons of Wilmslow, together with all MoT certificates.

Saleroom notices

  • Please note the vehicle has a re-conditioned 30,000 mile old gear box rather than clutch, work done by 911SBDLtd . The clutch was changed in August 2012 by Plashet Garage, bills on file.
