1976-78 was only used on certain panels. '79 SCs was the first year for a completely treated car.

this from Porsche ...
"In 1973, Porsche was the first in the automobile industry to weld galvanized sheet-metal panels into the Porsche body. This marked a milestone in corrosion protection for automobiles"
"1975, Porsche was the first manufacturer to introduce hot-dip galvanized steel for the entire body"

entire breakdown ...
Body Galvanizing in Porsche 911
This is a controversial, rumor-laden topic -- here is what I was able to find from sources that should be authoritative. Note the weight tidbit found -- so the body shells didn't really add too much weight because of the rust-proof steel per se.

Thyssen steel = steel with Zinc layers on both sides; thickness of the Zinc layers varied from 10 um to 20 um, depending on exposure conditions (Frere, p. 201)

1970 – Galvanized steel (not Thyssen type) used in floor pan and wheel arches (Bob White in Pano V: 142); the “entire platform, including the floor, the longitudinal members, the wheel arches and the seat pans were galvanized.” (Boschen & Barth, p. 124)
1971 models – had galvanized steel in area particularly exposed to rust (Frere, p. 201)
1972-1973 – Thyssen steel use began (Bob White in Pano V: 142)
1973 – Thyssen steel: rocker panels, inner rocker panels, floor pans, & some other parts (Chuck Stoddard in Pano V: 142)
1975 – Thyssen steel: entire body treated (Bob White & Chuck Stoddard {began in Feb. ’75 production} in Pano V: 142, 192)
1976 models – had Thyssen steel in entire body except roof (Frere, p. 201)
1977 models – on – had Thyssen steel in entire body (Frere, p. 201); an “important step forward was the use of zinc-coated sheet steel for the manufacture of the entire body structure (except for the coupe’s roof on early production cars). Coated on both sides, this made the structure virtually immune against the formation of rust….” (Boschen & Barth, p. 143)


The Zinc steel added 22 lbs. to the weight of the body structure (Frere, p. 202)

There are a number of Porsches I want to own before I'm to old to enjoy and appreciate them...I really like the outlaw 356 models out there that have been "Frankenstein'ed". Then again, I'm not a fan of the purist nonsense. It's your car, put your signature on it...I do with everyone I buy!

I may go to The Porsche Parade this year down in Savannah, Ga. during the summer.

Mike

The Porsche attended the Amelia Island Concours this past weekend where it was reunited with the Chevrolet Aztec.









Back in 1962 a pair of bank robbers on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list traveled from the East coast to California where they each bought a custom car - these are the two cars they bought - Dean Jeffries Kustom Karrera and Bill Karr's Aztec. We were able to get the two cars together on Sunday afternoon for the first time in almost fifty years.

Serious want, but I'm afraid my checkbook might be a little light.

Went to a big car show here in Stuttgart this past weekend. You can only imagine how many cool cars were there.

Some of the examples...















My favorite:














And b/c this is Stuttgart, I see 911 turbos like Civics around here every day.

They were shooting a new hopped up porsche and flagged my dad down and asked to take a pic wioth his car in it!!! I am really amazed that the newer porsche body style really isnt much larger than his old 356.
