There are multiple smaller invoices plus a service on 04/09/1997 at 135,411 miles. There is also an invoice for £661.94 from 14/11/97 at 135570 miles. An emissions test on 5/9/1998 indicates 141,997 miles and tyre receipt on 05/03/1999 is noted at 146552 miles. An HPI check certificate from 12/5/1999 indicates it was bought by a Mr D O’Rourke of Ingatestone with major invoices (mainly from HGW Engineering, Hornchurch) as follows: 27/05/99 £560.69 (149822 miles) 9/9/99 £383.88 (151330 miles) 12/8/00 £495.45 (159960 miles) 30/8/00 £1,147 ex VAT 30/8/00 463.51 (160,489 miles) 16/10/01 458.32 At this point it appears to have changed hands to a Mr Cove who transferred the number plate RGC 877 to the vehicle. There are no other records from this period until a DVLA Certificate for the plate G510 PCE was issued on 29th October 2004 by the DVLA. An undated invoice for £2995 indicates that the car was sold by a Mr Les Packman of Cambridge to Mr Barry Johnstone of Slough with a note to deliver to Northways Porsche, Reading – their report indicates it was clearly not running and the engine was “Fubard” according to the notes!. An invoice dated 21st July 2005 from Heyes Engineering in Stroud details the engine rebuild for a total of £4,700. From this point until the end of 2005 there a number of invoices from Porsche Apart, The Porsche Shop, Porsche Reading and Europorscha totalling £1591.34. In 2006 Mr Johnson continued his restoration work with invoices for a JDS ECU rebuild for £325 (which I replaced again last year), and a power steering rack from Porscheshop for £513.26. The last mileage recording is the MOT of 14/8/2006 at 176,643 indicating 16,154 covered over the previous 6 years and only 3000 miles less than the mileage when I bought it 9 years later! From this point the only records in the file are MOT’s – 14th Aug 2006 @ 176643 miles 25th Aug 2007 @ 177550 miles 5th March 2009 @ 177713 miles 12th March 2010 @ 178287 miles 11th June 2012 @ 178545 miles 18th April 2013 @ 178744 miles 4th Sept 2014 @ 178,749 miles I acquired the car on 19th February 2015 from a Peter Bentley along with a large box containing the history file, workshop manuals and car manual. I stored it for 2 years then in 2017 started work. The paint was covered in micro blisters after a bad re-spray (and was the wrong colour) so I took the decision to strip it back to bare metal and start again. In doing so we took the opportunity to panel beat the rear arches to widen them, the broken front bumper was remodelled and a new spoiler was added. The result is a car that looks subtly updated from the original. (I still have the original spoiler and various parts so everything can be returned to original apart from the rear wings). Aero mirrors were added and the car painted in Polar Silver. There are a few small outstanding issues – primarily the door mirrors are manual operation as the motors are not connected, the central locking works on the passenger side but needs to be manually locked on the drivers side and the oil pressure gauge is intermittent. Private plate not included.
