    FS: 911SC Targa (NSW)

    Anyone in the market for one of these?

    '78. HK delivery. Factory RHD, numbers matching, factory Fuchs, have a thick book of receipts back to 2004. Has had a repaint in the factory colour at some point and I've just had a few scrappy interior things replaced. Car is in Sydney and on Historic rego. Looking for $75k or thereabouts.

    It's called Sienna Metallic and was a special order from the factory back in the 70s. I wasn't sure when I first saw it, but it's really grown on me.

    I googled the colour and it looks more brown/copper on other 911's. Put some pics up without any editing. The colour looks better on the other cars than in your pic...

    Here's one straight off the camera. The colour does change a fair bit depending on light etc, and there also seems to be a lot of confusion between Sienna Metallic, Copper Metallic and Wine Red Metallic, and a bit of variation between the years. It's not for everyone - some love it and others hate it

    It actually looks a lot like clutchmonkey's avatar

    yeah most common google search is this one which definitely seems to have more copper in it.



    x2 on the light changing it, the amethyst metallic in my avatar can look almost chocolate in some light weirdly.

    Mostly just rationalising the fleet so I can work through the bucket list and bring home / use the Pagoda.
