Thanks so much for this..
I'm at a complete loss with these cars..
The engine number is 6134142
I got it moved out of the garage its lived in for all its life.
With a new battery and fresh fluids it started right up.
These cars are amazing.
This sure wouldn't have happened if it was a Ferrari or Maserati, maybe a Lambo?

So thinking of just going through the whole car, getting everything sorted and checked..
A good cleaning too.
The carpets are worn, and so is the form padding for the drivers seat. I heard about Sierra Madre as a good place to get parts from..

It was my first Porsche and it was a really fun car.

Now, as a Porsche noob, I had no idea as to the strange sounds it could make, and what it meant. I could wind out 1-2 and it sounded great, 2-3 sounded about the same, but it also sounded like the car was farting. This farting/popping is a sign of loose heads, which will necessitate an engine drop and either tighten heads, or replace studs. i.e. top end job.

Just go in with your eyes open, and hope for the best, but expect the worst. I am now on my 8th Porsche.
The owner who passed was a Ferrari guy and drove his Testarossa more is all.
He passed about a year ago so its been sitting maybe a year and half, so not terrible..

The date code will be on the inside of the rim. It could be in the recesses of the petals, or on the hub area of the petals.

For interior carpets, you can also use GAHH. I used them for my leather seat covers, leather dash and some other parts on my Weissach. Other friends have used Autos International, and their materials are very good, too!

For a rebuild, try TRE. If you run across someone named Jerry Marks/Marquez or a similar name, RUN! He ran MotorMeister, and most recently, Stuttgart Auto Works.

Thanks so much for your help..

The engine started up with some smoke.
I let is idle for a while and the smoke went away.
Did a comp test and was 140 all around..
Just got the registration updated so now I can drive it around the block legally..
Is Sierra Modre any good? Their site looks pretty complete with just about everything one would need to freshen everything up.
Thinking of doing the interior for sure, rims, and maybe an engine rebuild to detail the engine bay etc..
Paint looks ok with small chips here and there but its serviceable.

Yes...Sierra Madre is a great vendor for hard-to-find parts. Also try Stoddard's and Pelican Parts.
