Hi Mark - car looks nice! To clarify, when you say #107, I assume you mean it's VIN # ending 107 - correct? I don't want to confuse it with production number 107. Whatever it is, it's not in the 928 Registry and I'd love to add it since it's such an early number. Thanks!

Take care,
Jarrod

Its only been here a few hours. The gas is definitely bad but it does run on starting fluid. I really have no idea what all it might need or what its worth.
I'll start digging into it tomorrow

While I hope somebody buys it outright, if you end up parting it and the center console trim bezel is pristine I'd like it.

Very nice. What type of numbers does it have on the odometer?

Would like to see more of her when you get a chance, especially the engine bay.

Thank you,

Brian.

(jedi mind trick on)
It's not worth anything ....
And you will let it go at a very reasonable price to an enthusiast who has been looking for
a low vin 78 for a while

(jedi mind trick off)

So... Mark, what are you asking for this low mile 78?
