1967 Porsche 912: The Last Barn Find?

1967 Porsche 912

The auction listing for this 1967 Porsche 912 starts out with this statement, “Just when you thought all the good barn finds were gone…” What, who thought that? That’s followed up with the bold claim that all the “undiscovered barn finds are likely behind us“. People have been saying that one for years now. There will continue to be barn finds around to discover for as long as people continue to buy cars and park them in their garages. They aren’t going anywhere and neither are we! Still, we have to agree with the seller statements about 912 values following the lead of the 911. This one has been resprayed so it can’t really be considered all original. Heck, I’m not really even sure what makes it a barn find? It does look solid and savable though so it might be worth a look here on eBay where the auction ends tonight.

    I love the color and being a 912 it’s a little unusual, and that’s a good price for 2016. I love the seller’s statement, “..while I would not recommend driving the car a long distance, without first going through all the mechanical systems, it is a car that is ready to be driven and enjoyed as it is being enhanced and freshened.”

    Things that sellers will say.. “no visible rust” (i.e., there’s most likely rust everywhere but on the surface), “these are really rising in value” (why are you selling it then), “I’ve looked for one of these for years but now have to sell, my loss is your gain” (car-flipper alert) This looks like a great car that will probably never lose value.

    Wrong seats. Seinfeld car is original paint. Blah blah blah. Just another needy 912 with a lot of hype from the seller.

    He’s listed as a private seller, but makes the statement that he’s owned over a 100 Porsches, that makes him a dealer. I think the State of Indiana and Michigan would like to talk to him about not being a licensed dealer, and bring his checkbook along also.

    Not so sure I’d rather have this than a 3.0 liter SC for about the same money, but it seems like a pretty nice car. A stock Porsche muffler would be a big improvement. And stock seats would look right, but maybe not so comfortable. The wrong color paint is a big turn off to me- but I can paint. But I guess that’s what the market is today.
    A perfect car would be much more.
