PROJECT: Sympathetic Restoration – Bob’s 1976 930 Turbo Part 1

About a year ago our long term customer Bob was on the hunt for an early 3L 930 Turbo. Something that would need only a bit of sympathy and care to bring back to its original glory, something with a very retro 70s colour combination and something he can keep for many years to come. His hunt concluded when he found this beautiful English delivered, Cooper Brown Metallic with Cinnamon trim 930 Turbo – the deal was done and the Turbo made his own.

Fast forward to today and we’ve been piecing back together this sympathetic restoration. First off the body was stripped, repaired and repainted all in its original spec. After receiving the newly painted shell back at Autohaus, we began fitting parts – first the brakes were given a once over, bits that needed replacing – replaced or restored. Suspension was next and the installation of the new roof trim.

Now it was time for assembly, glass was first to go in and then bumpers and side splats. Stuart and Anthony have begun work on the wiring look and getting all the gauges in and sorted. The engine and transmission have been refitted – whilst the gearbox has a full rebuild the engine was quite strong and only required a major service, detail and a simple restoration.

Soon the lights both front and rear will be in and the next step will be bumpers and interior. Stay tuned from more updates – as they come!
