READER AD: 1966 Porsche 912 Project

Here’s a project for someone wanting an air-cooled Porsche! The seller also has a large stash of other sports cars that may be worth a look.

What Makes It Special? I purchased this car off eBay with its non-original motor not running. I drove 500 miles to pay the seller who said he had another buyer. Looking at the car, I thought someone was in love with price Purple Rain but after researching I believe someone copied the color of the Porsche Jubilee Edition. This is just the beginning, there are other cars; ’67 BMW 2000cs, ’67 Alfa Duetto, ’71 Alfa GTV 1750, ’67 & ’69 Fiat Spiders, ’61 Simca Plein Ciel Coupe, two RR’s ’64 & ’84 limo, ’61 Alfa Touring, ’06 Big Dog Mastiff, ’86 Alfa Spider. Take it all for $344,000.

Body Condition: The body condition could use some rust repair or just drive it until you’re ready.

Mechanical Condition: The engine is a flat-four 1500cc running at the moment. Gas peddle linkage is stopping the car from driving and I’m going to fix that as soon as I can.

    Now that I’ve seen it what happened to the paint!! Looks like salt water corrosion!! It’s kind of good for me though cause a have a customer with an 83, 911 in her garage!! Hasn’t been driven since 86 ( last registration date on window) and I’m wondering what I should offer her for it!!! 4 flat tires and I’m sure it’s got bad gas!!!!

      When I have bad gas I pop a couple of Tums. Drop a few in the tank and see what happens.

    That isn’t a 912 unless someone spent a lot of time and money trying to make it look like a newer model

      Well the Vin and Kardex would tell the tale but who would put those Eighties bumper and whale tail on a 66? If it has a 4 it must be……I guess. What a FrankenP-Car though.!

      If someone does buy this for anything close to the ask, I’m gong to start selling ice to Eskimos

    If that is a 1500 flat four it’s a VW type 4. Real 912s were 1600 slightly modified 356 engines. Price is way out of whack for this car.
