We are pleased to offer this 1966 Porsche 912 presented in Polo Red over a black leatherette interior. Introduced as Porsche’s entry-level sports car in 1965, this 912 model carries the 1600cc flat-four engine used in the 356 SC. Having undergone a complete bare metal restoration only three years ago with approximately 1,500 miles driven since, this 5-speed 1966 example is said to be in excellent overall condition with a number’s matching drivetrain and a collection of documentation. Showing 107k miles on the odometer, this classic Porsche 912 is now being made available for auction by its seller in Massachusetts.
About 3 years ago, Ellis Edwoods Motorsports was commissioned to perform a full bare metal restoration of this 912 in its factory specified color of Polo Red. The finish is stated to be in excellent condition as could be seen in the detailed images provided in the photo gallery. This 912 highlights chrome exterior brightwork as well as factory wheels with chrome hubcaps which come dressed in Vredestein tires.
The black leatherette appointed interior is said to be in beautifully restored condition with all gauges and accessories remaining fully functional. Noteworthy details include a 3-gauge instrument display with a painted dashboard surround, original seat belts, a factory antenna and loudspeaker.
This 912 carries an air cooled 1.6 L flat-four engine sourced from the 356 SC model. The rear wheels are driven by way of a factory optional and numbers matching 5-speed manual transmission. During the time of the restoration 3 years ago, Freed Performance carried out a full engine rebuild with supporting documentation included. Said to be in fantastic running order with barely 1,500 miles driven since the completion of the restoration, this 912 is ready to begin its journey with a new owner.
The sale of this 912 will include books and tools, a jack and spare tire, a set of two keys and a collection of service records. This 912 offers an incredible opportunity for any vintage Porsche enthusiast, do not miss out.
