I've had 79, 86 and 91 turbos and they don't compare to my 77. My car is quite docile at low speeds, but when you get on it and boost kicks in it is like an on/off switch. Just hold on as it spools really fast!

The really funny thing is when I was turbo shopping in 2006, my mechanic said to stay away from the non intercooled ones. There was a white one for sale for $22k with 50k on it, but I bought a 79 instead. Seven years later, the turbo prices went up, but I like the way the 77 drives best.

Rich and Phil,
Thanks for 2 incredible stories and sharing 2 beautiful cars. These “Dealer Finds” beat most Barn Finds I’ve seen by miles! Wishing many years of enjoyment to you both.

Gerry- good to hear from you, it's been a few years

Allen- I'm not sure what factory boost limit was, I have to look that up. The 77 is a 70.4 mm stroke motor vs the 74.4, so motor just revs better, comes on boost faster, it's also a lighter car by over 200 lbs, all of this creates a more lively feel.

Fun story, I'm glad everyone has enjoyed this! I'll get some better pics this WE.

Phil

That's awesome you're able to contact previous owners.

It also turns out car was originally brown, I found some small areas where I could find original paint, looks very interesting. It will be a fun project seeing if I can get car repainted in original PTS color. I'll need to follow up with owner to see if they have pictures of car in original color.

Cover, boost limit was 0.8 bar for the 3.0L, non-intercooled, motors?

I think it was the same for the 3.3 turbos, too, including the 964 turbo.
