Mike takes on a Porsche 924, the first car he ever turned around on the series. Will fixing oil leaks and worn interior be enough earn a profit?
Work Completed: Engine main seals replaced to address oil leak, engine parts cleaned and painted, cam belt and tensioner replaced, sump gaskets replaced, clutch replaced, engine oil changed with multigrade oil, warm-up regulator modified and refurbished to address rough idling, transaxle linkage geometry and gear lever extended to improve gear change, interior refurbished, damaged front valance fixed, exterior polished.
Notes: US spec car with 95 hp engine and four-speed transmission. Mike recalled his memories about restoring a Porsche 924 during the series’ very first episode. Being a 1977 model, the car is older than the one in the very first episode.
