"A well-built and potent car in top condition"


Swedish-sold convertible that has been expertly rebuilt. It underwent extensive renovation and alteration over several years before being completed in 2015. Front and rear suspension, as well as brakes from a Porsche 944 Turbo, were used. The engine has 1.9 litres and is well-balanced and tuned. The power is believed to be between 120 and 140 horsepower.

  • Mechanical condition:

    The engine was installed in the car in the spring of 2021. Its foundation is a double-reduced AD block. Drilled to 1914cc with weighted pistons and rods, ground crank (oversize), and an Engel W110 (284) camshaft. Everything is brand new, including the oil pump and strainer.
    Tops machined to match the block's drilling, gently ported, and outfitted with stainless steel valves and fresh seats. Carburetor is a double 44mm Fajs (weber copy) with a switchless ignition system (Ignitor)
    A new clutch with a cushlock plate has been installed, as has a larger exhaust system with a GT13 muffler.
    The front end is equipped with Golf mk1 struts. Spindles from a Porsche 944 Turbo. Rear end from a Porsche 944 Turbo, including front and rear adjustable cone dampers. Stabilizer with a coarser cut. The gearbox has been upgraded to provide a more comfortable transmission on country roads.
    Porsche vented disc brakes with yoke all around.

  • Interior condition:

    Porsche steering wheel and seats from the Porsche 911 in fine shape - electrically controlled but not connected, thus adjustment is done manually. The sound system and bluetooth are hidden in the car. If you look closely, you'll note that the sun visors have become a little saggy with age, and there's a small - around 2 cm - crack on the dashboard. Otherwise, the decor is lovely and fresh and in near-new shape.

  • Exterior condition:

    Professionally repainted in 2014 in conjunction with the renovation. Front and rear bumpers are most likely new and in great condition. In the front bumpers, there are recessed turn signals. Convertible and cover are both brand new. The rubber seals surrounding the doors are a little worn, but everything else feels well-made and well-kept. 17-inch Porsche rims  nearly new 215/45 low-profile tyres.
    The luggage and engine compartments are exceptional in terms of neatness, cleanliness, and order. The engine compartment is elegantly painted white, emphasising the engine's simplicity. Porsche spare wheels are stored in the front baggage.

  • General condition:

    Mostly in great condition. Everything has been evaluated and correctly modified for maximum usability in this extremely useful car. The sound is an important aspect of the car's personality, and it can only be characterised as cool!

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.

  • Once you have called in an item and the reservation price is reached we want you to deposit the entire purchase amount into our client funds account before retrieval can take place.
  • When you need to retrieve a called in object we want you to examine it carefully. If you consider that the item does not match our description you do not need to complete the purchase. In this case the deposited purchase sum and the entry fee are refunded.
  • If you do not examine the item on the spot the call charge will be debited, but you do not have to complete the deal.
  • If you make the entire purchase exclusively at a distance you have 14 days to cancel, but must return the item at your own expense.
  • Your shipping costs and other costs are not reimbursed when the right of withdrawal is exercised. Swedish court applies.
