1972 911 Cabriolet
To All Porsche Owners:
I recently had an older Porsche stolen and recovered; the car was recovered after having been dragged over dirt and gravel roads, through a sagebrush field and pushed into a rocky depression. The recovered vehicle was missing all electrical parts and guages, the dash was destroyed and it had been mechanically abused so that even the steering wheel was warped to the extent it could not be used to drive. However, the car was not driveable because the clutch was completely destroyed, and other damages throughout the vehicle were not, at that time, obvious. The convertible top was up, but the controls and other electrical parts were destroyed and/or removed. Alpine Motor Cars, LLC, in Hayden, Idaho agreed to work on the car.
Alpine Motors was able to locate and install year-appropriate guages and parts, particularly where visible, and upgrade parts where possible. In addition to rewiring nearly the entire car, they replaced the clutch, adjusted the transmission, and evaluated/replaced/repaired the engine and oil pressure system as needed. I was informed at every step along the repair process, and in advance about any and all parts needing replacement, for my consent. Alpine Motor Cars uses an excellent body shop when needed.
When I received the car, it looked much better then when it was stolen. The outside appearance was indicative ot the interior where all the guages, the dash, windshield and panels had been replaced and other things like Porsche floormats added. The engine fired immediately, and was very responsive to the throttle. Driving my car is now a more enjoyable experience. It is smooth, quiet, responsive and stable on the road.
I highly recommend Alpine Motor Cars, LLC, for any and all Porsche services, and they came highly recommended to me by the Spokane Porsche dealership personnel.
