1968 Porsche 912: 5 Speed Fun

right rear

I don’t usually write up Porsches, but I couldn’t resist this 912. Porsches always go for stupid money and this one probably will as well, but I’ve wanted a 912 for 50 years, since I first drove one. The early 911’s were heavy handed brutes by comparison. (Forgive the blasphemy, Porsche folks!) Porsche parts are really expensive and Porsche fans are really picky about restorations. The engine in this car got new heads but the engine hasn’t been started since 2006. It has very little rust, one hole in the floor and a hole in the package tray. It is a numbers matching car. It had been prepped for paint but a few of the emblems have gone missing. Bidding here on eBay is up to $12,000 with a day left and very active bidding. It’s in my area, so if anyone is serious, I’ll be glad to have a look, take pictures.

    Way more underside shots than topside shots. With these cars that’s a good thing.

    The suspension attachment points look solid except for what looks like an extra reinforcing bracket added at the rear of the right front suspension arm mount, if I got that right from the upside down pics. I’d want to know what that’s about. The body looks fairly good except for what looks like some bondo on the rockers, so that would need to be checked out.

    For the first time in a long time I’m wondering why the bid on an early 911/912 car is so low. That might make the guys who paid too much for those hulks we’ve seen being sold feel bad.

    The only thing I can suggest is for this seller to download some free image handling software and click on the little semicircular arrows that rotate your images to get them upside right.

    The seller must be pretty excited with the bucket of money this car will probably bring because the photos are out of focus and need to be flipped/rotated. Funny how a simple digital camera or camera phone can baffle people that are otherwise comfortable around automobile mechanics. Regarding the car, these are fun to drive so if the selling price is reasonable, considering the current sizzling Porsche market, then have a blast restoring and driving this fun car.

    Judging from the photos posted, you’d be upside down with this car right from the beginning.
