Needs TLC: 1977 Porsche 924 Martini Edition

I know that a sub $5k Porsche has to have many problems, even if its the least desirable of the water cooled P-cars. However, today’s 924 is a Martini Championship Edition which means that it is one of 3000 built with white paint and some cool Martini blue-red racing stripes on the side. Today’s example is in need of some work, but the price is good. Find this 1977 Porsche 924 Martini Edition offered for $3,500 in SF Bay, CA via craigslist.
