This very low mileage, totally original, mint condition 924, is one of the relatively rare Martini Edition cars that Porsche built to commemorate their 1976 World Championship under Martini sponsorship.
This car was prepared by concours master Tom Scott of Colorado and first shown at the Porsche Club of America’s annual convention, the Porsche Parade, in Dallas in 1987. There, it won the now defunct Manhattan Trophy for Best Overall in Show, a rare achievement for an all-original car. This 924 was the cover car for the November-December 1987 edition of Excellence magazine, which also contained a flattering article on the car. In addition, it was featured in Porsche Panorama in September 1987.
After the Parade, the car went into Dr. Bill Jackson’s collection in Denver until it was sold to Tom Conway, who in turn sold it to Prescott Kelly. Most recently, Kelly has been the President of the Porsche Club of America, and is an avid enthusiast of all-original, older Porsches.
The car is still in mint condition and totally original, including all the paint, with only 7,195 miles. It is complete with its original tool kit, jack, and owner’s manual kit. A copy of the Excellence magazine that features the car and a framed photograph of the Excellence cover shot accompanies the car, along with Martini Edition literature and memorabilia, including a Porsche factory-issued showroom plaque. In 2008, Jim Newton at Auto Associates of Canton (CT) thoroughly refurbished the car mechanically, so it now runs as good as it looks.
For a price that is a small fraction of comparable restoration costs, you can have a 100% original car to show and win in full concours or preservation classes. Price upon request.
