Some of you folks got all fired up recently about a P-car find we listed that included a 928, so this 1980 928 “Euro S” (as characterized by the seller) listed here on eBay at no reserve and starting under $1,000 seemed way too good to pass up. This blue beauty is located in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
The seller states that this version is the lightest of all 928s and is both reliable and powerful. I can’t see any rust or even paint flaws in the pictures, but they aren’t particularly high resolution so some questions or further picture requests may be in order. Nonetheless, it’s a very striking color and the paint we can see seems to be in very nice condition.
One of the more unusual features of the 928 is the visible but pop-up headlights. They’ve grown on me over the years after seeming a little odd when the design debuted. The seller states in the ad that over $20,000 of work has gone into this car, which makes me wonder why sell it now? Among the work recently done is a water pump/timing belt replacement 900 miles ago and a near new clutch. The seller says the car needs nothing except to replace the air conditioning compressor and to adjust the Bilstein rear shocks.
Although the interior is certainly worn, the blue leather looks like there’s some life left in it, and that all important third pedal and manual shift lever are in place. That’s an aftermarket Momo steering wheel. Does that look like a 79,980 mile interior? I’ll leave that to the 928 experts. It certainly could stand a nice cleaning. I wish I could show you under the hood, but the seller didn’t include any engine shots–a real shame as to me that’s one of the more impressive engines visually I know of. What do you think this one will end up selling for? And at what price would you be interested?
