Timelapse Video: 3.2 Carrera engine removal
Did you know that globally, around two-thirds of all Porsches built are still being actively enjoyed by owners and enthusiasts? Or that classic Porsche cars (those which have been out of production for 10 years or more) represent over a quarter of the Porsche cars on the road in the UK?
What better way then, in the 50th anniversary year of the 911, to celebrate this remarkable durability and breadth of passion, than for Official Porsche Centres to use all the parts that remain available off the shelf from Porsche – and the expertise that lays within every OPC workshop and that of their affiliated Approved Body Repairers – to restore a Classic 911 back to full glory!
Demonstrating the knowledge and support available from an OPC in the repair and maintenance of Classic Porsches, participating Centres have entered an internal Porsche competition and are now actively restoring their chosen cars, with judging for each entry to be made by the end of September.
Total 911 will be following the progress of local OPC, Bournemouth, as they and their approved body repairers, Poole Accident Repair, restore a 1985 3.2 Carrera.
Points will be awarded for mechanical restoration and body and cosmetic restoration, and Bournemouth OPC have started by removing the engine and gearbox for polishing. The 911 has now been handed to Poole Accident Repair who will begin the paint and panel restoration. You can follow the progress of the 3.2’s restoration every week on Total911.com or via www.pooleaccidentrepair.co.uk.
