Morning and welcome,
 
I quickly popped F232RGS in to the MOT check site (https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk/) and it looks to have really low mileage although no MOT since 2011. Be great to see some photos of NBC678W and the new one if you go ahead with the purchase.

The guy selling the 924s le mans restored it and spent a fortune on it, sadly when he moved he lost the service history and all the rest of the paperwork, it has 38000 on the clock but it could be 138000 its had 11 owners since new,i suppose i wil have to contact dvla and get a list of its owners,and try and contact them and hopefully find out about the cars history,its hpi clear and ive got a form to apply for the certificate of conformity from the club, so i guess i have got alot of digging to do.
Hopefully someone will have some info on the car from this club.

Both great cars Jamie-just enjoy them both.As you can see,we have 2 924S's but our 1st Porsche was a 924Lux.
 
Both sturdy cars & at that mileage hardly run in if true.Check the belts,change the oil & filter(Porsche brand) if necessary & years of pleasure.

1986 924S Stone Grey.
1987 924S Guards Red
2004 BMW 530D SE Touring Chiaretto Red
1966 MGB GT B Racing Green.

Something is wrong then, 93ZCN identifies it as a 1982 model year Turbo, could possibly have been registered after August 1981 when the Porsche model year starts.

Body is least of your worries! The money is in the engine and gearbox, rebuilding those is very expensive. The value of a project depends very much on how much you are capable of doing yourself and how much is farmed out.

Values of turbos run from £1000 for a breaker to £40k for an OPC restored car. Although £3k to £20k is the current spread of real world prices in last 12 months. But today, the market is tough to sell at strong money.
 
As for restoration, there is no ceiling. OPC restored turbos plus one other I know of have had £40k spent on them. There are two extremely good restos in progress right now in the UK and no expense is being spared. There is a full thread on 924OC. The car although had some minor damage was on surface a very well cared for car. It’s undergone a full 3yr resto and is now in paint. Many surprises during its rebuild. All depends on your expectation of the final restoration. Drivable classic or better than new?
 
If you buy a £5k turbo off eBay thats not run for some years you may have to budget at least the same to recommission to a good drivable standard. Maybe less, maybe a lot more.

If it came with Porsche Cars GB derived 'Lux' pack then sunroof, rear wiper, electric windows and mirrors would have been included as a package. Or all items could be bought as individual items. But Lux pack was a no brainer for most.

I purchased a white 1986, 924s automatic in December 2019. It has only carried out about 2500
miles in the last 12 years I am the 6th owner. This is my third porsche I started with a low millage 944 auto  72000 miles and replaced it with a low milage Boxster 29000 miles 2001 car. I missed my 944 so much I looked for a 944/924 to replace it 
On purchase it needed the bottom of both front wings welding. I am still working on the nearside wing it needs refinishing. I have had the belts changed at Zuffenhaus our local Porsche specialist. They also replaced the oil filter gaskets and fixed an oil leak on the power steering pump. I also had a full service to include plugs filters antifreeze etc. I have been working on the paintwork touching up where needed. I hope to have it up and running this week. I need to include it in the register.
