The vehicle in detail

This 912 was repainted by the past owner and is in excellent condition with a few imperfections. The brightwork, rubber seals, aluminum trim, and original Sekurit tinted glass are all in great condition. The electric sunroof has been fully serviced and operates as it should. The upholstery is partially original with an original leather-wrapped steering wheel, VDO instrumentation, and a Blaupunkt AM/FM radio. The Lemmerz wheels are 5.5” x 15” date-coded 10 of 68 fitted to 205 60 R15 tires. Due to a long life in the west coast, the undercarriage has remained incredibly dry with no indication of rust.

Mechanically powered by a period correct 1600cc flat-four engine paired to a 5-speed manual transmission with a four-wheel disc braking system. On June 1, 2021, Air Cooled in Sun Valley, California performed the following work rebuilding the distributor, fuel pump, carburetors, and rear brakes. The throw-out bearing, clutch disc, shifter bushings, and the spark plug wires were also replaced. A new fuel tank and sport muffler were installed and the engine sheet metal was detailed with an oil service and filter change. Most recently, European Collectibles has done a full safety inspection, service, and has had the sunroof serviced including new cables and a new seal. Complete with date-coded spare tire, Porsche Production Specification Sheet, and recent receipts. A rare opportunity to acquire a special ordered sunroof 912 that is 100% turn-key and ready to enjoy!

History
In 1969 Porsche stretched the wheelbase of the 911 and 912 2.3 inches and added fender flares to the front and rear wheel arches. They also added substance to the interiors of the “long wheelbase” cars by trimming the dash differently and adding solid door pockets, shoulder belts, and headrests in the seats. The reason Porsche stretched the wheelbase was to tame the ill-handling 911. The heavy rear weight balance made the “short wheelbase” cars a handful to drive near the limit and they often caught even the most experienced drivers in arrears. Spinning backward off the road was a common thing in these early cars. The lengthened wheelbase effectively moved the bias towards the front wheels and the “long wheelbase” cars were mostly tamed.
