Flooring Required: 1966 Porsche 911 Coupe

The Porsche 911 is legendary in the European sports car segment of the collector car hobby. Based off of the 356, the 911 first rolled off the assembly line in 1964. This particular car is a 1966 and can be found here on eBay with a current bid of $35,300. Being sold by MB Vintage Cars in Cleveland, Ohio, you can find a link to their website here. You can also read a very detailed history of Porsche 911 here on caranddriver.com.

This car shows pretty well up top and probably looks great from thirty feet. Unfortunately, nearly the entire floor pan is gone. There are holes on the driver’s and passenger’s sides as well as the rear. There will be a ton of fabrication and welding work ahead in order to get the structure back in this car. The original color of this car was sand beige, which is a pretty classy color that you don’t see as much as red, black or white.

Unfortunately, besides the rust, the engine is not original. The ad states it is a 1968 vintage and the block is “broken.” While these weren’t the fastest 911’s made, they did get a step up in horsepower for 1966. If the original (running) engine was still installed in this car, there’s no doubt the bidding would be much higher.

Overall, this looks like a decent investment. As long as the restoration costs do not get too out of control, there may be a profit here. Do you think this car is too far gone to be worth restoring? Let us know your thoughts.

    A 912 in such condition (i.e. in need of restoration) is worth 11.000 or 12.000 $, otherwise it’s merely frantic speculation

    Well, at least it’s not sitting on a pallet.

    The 911 was not based on the 356 and was in fact a completely new design from the ground up. Where the 356 featured more than a few Volkswagen-based components (such as the chassis and engine design), the 911 shared nothing. Ferry Porsche is rolling in his grave because of that 356-based comment!

    As classic steel said, this baby spent time laying on the ground. Never saw such extensive rust. Even up in the front suspension, and that’s what you can see in the pics. More where that came from. Somebdy thought it was worth it, Gone! wow…wouldn’t know where to start!!

    Good luck to the new owner!

    Right, so the floor’s knackered, the engine’s not original (and that’s knackered too), and the interior looks knackered. How much? Get real.

    Big Porsche fan, but not this one. Not much here unless the paper work is in order and the data plate and bulkheads with vin stamp and production number are there, if so ….you may find them transplanted to another vehicle. There is little hope for this vehicle
