1968 Porsche 912 2.7L Flat-Six

Up for auction is this 1968 Porsche 912 Coupe finished in Polo Red over a black interior.  Said to have remained in the current owner’s family for over 50 years, this 912 spent many years in storage before the seller began a gradual restoration in 2014 which included the installation of an upgraded 2.7 L flat-six 911 engine.  It is now being offered by its longtime owner out of Florida accompanied by the original tools, spare tire, service records, and a clean title.

The Polo Red finish is said to be beautifully presented with a protective Polymer coating applied over the full exterior within the last 6 months.  Some of the driver’s side has been professionally refinished for cosmetic purposes, although the rest of the paint is said to be original (Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery).  This 912 features a short-wheelbase, long-hood configuration as well as pop-out rear quarter windows and front quarter vents.  The exterior trim and brightwork are said to be original and the genuine Fuchs wheels ride on newer Michelin tires.

The black interior is said to be in great shape with some refurbishments including a reupholstered driver’s seat with new cushioning.  Modifications include an aftermarket wood-rimmed Motolita steering wheel, RS-style door panels, a rear seat delete, and an aftermarket radio with door speakers.  Passenger seat covers are included in the sale and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be working properly.

Approximately 5 years ago, this 912 was fitted with a 2.7 L flat-six engine with Weber carburetors which is said to have been sourced from a low-mileage 911.  The rear wheels are driven through a factory 5-speed manual gearbox and the suspension, braking, and steering systems are all said to have been completely refreshed in recent years.  The seller reports that all mechanical work was carried out by certified Porsche technicians.  A recent oil service was performed and this 912 is said to be in strong running order.

This sale will include a set of 3 keys, some factory literature, service records, the original toolkit and spare tire, passenger seat covers, an instant battery charger, and a clean title.  Offering the power of a 2.7 L 911 in the body of a short-wheelbase 912, this 1968 example is the perfect air-cooled driver for any passionate enthusiast.

    Do you have the service history and if so from when? Do you have supporting documentation of the motor rebuild detailing the name of the facility that completed the work and parts utilized for the build? Has any suspension parts been replaced and or upgraded? Can you provide the motor and trans number? Did you retain the original motor? Please review pic #21. Was the drivers door left open or is there an issue with the door alignment?

  • markbutlerinc (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Hi, Are the tires factory sized and Is the suspension stock? Has the suspension been refreshed or does it look just visually look like it sits lower with less wheel arch room?

  • rreasen (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Hi Seller. It appears the driver's side seat has been redone and looks amazing. What about the passenger and rear seats? Also, when was the car repainted and do you have any photos of the before and after?
