1969 Porsche 912 5-Speed Ossi Blue

Now available is this 1969 Porsche 912 Coupe finished in Ossi Blue over a black leatherette interior. Based on the flagship 911 model, the 912 was introduced as Porsche’s entry-level sports car with a 1600cc flat-four engine derived from the 356SC.  This long-wheelbase 1969 example features an upgraded Ansa exhaust, a retro-style digital radio, a 5-speed manual gearbox, and chrome 15” wheels. Reported to have been under the care of its previous owner for approximately 20 years, this 912 has undergone considerable recent service and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.

This 912 comes finished in Ossi Blue with chrome brightwork and a single driver-side mirror. Named for a town on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia, Ossi Blue was only offered from 1968-1969 and remains one of the more desirable nonmetallic blues in Porsche’s color palette.  The car is believed to have been refinished about 20 years ago with noted imperfections including cracking of the finish on the hood as well as some bubbling near the hood crest and door jambs. Rust is also present near the antenna and battery tray, detailed images are provided in the gallery. A quad-tip Ansa exhaust system is equipped along with 15" steel wheels with chrome hubcaps and Doral tires.

Inside, you will find a classic black leatherette interior with basketweave pattern inlays on the dashboard, seat centers, and door panels.  Features include a heater, three-point front seatbelts, pop-out rear quarter windows, and an upgraded period-style digital radio paired with a loudspeaker in the center dashboard. The seller notes some cracking on the dashboard and confirms that all gauges, lights, and accessories remain fully functional.

This 912 is equipped with an air-cooled dual-carbureted 1600cc flat-four engine rated at 90 HP. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed manual transmission. In preparation for sale, new brake calipers and pads were installed along with new shifter bushings and a rebuild of the fuel pump. Images of the undercarriage are provided in the gallery.

This sale will include a rare set of original blue carpet floor mats, an original Porsche leather key pouch, and a clean title.   For those in search of a classic long-hood Porsche, this rare 5-speed Ossi Blue 912 is not to be missed.

    @VertexAuto I'm referring to photos 135 - 138, for example.

  • VertexAuto (seller) 6 monthsago

    @tryanindy A compression and leak down test has not been performed.

    As for the front wheel wells, I’m not sure what you are referring to. Can you please reference a photo number? Thanks!

    @VertexAuto, please see previous question about compression and leak down numbers?
    Also, is there some kind of repair material applied to the front wheel wells, as seen from inside the front trunk?

    Thank you

    @theralphiej Oh and does the heat work well? looking to ise this as a daily in frigid NY.

  • theralphiej (registered bidder) 6 monthsago

    Any leaks? @Vertex Auto, are you able to send it in for that 3k job at the buyer's expense?

  • VertexAuto (seller) 6 monthsago

    @justlookin1 Yes. We do believe so. We don't have a COA but both the number do match the model and year.

  • justlookin1 6 monthsago

    Also the transmission/ Thanks

  • justlookin1 6 monthsago

    Is the flat four the original engine the car was born with?

  • tryanindy (registered bidder) 6 months, 1 weekago

    Do you have recent compression and leak down numbers?

    Also, can you comment on whether there is some kind of repair material applied to the front wheel wells, as seen from inside the front trunk?

    Thank you

    @XabBlue You are looking at about $3K in parts and service.

  • XabBlue 6 months, 2 weeksago

    @VertexAuto, I'm trying to gauge what the cost would be for some important repairs that I see are needed. To have a reference point, what would Vertex Auto charge to repair the following?
    1) The battery tray and suspension pan rust, along with any rust in the nose/latch panel area.
    2) The hole in the front suspension area, and fastening the front of the torsion bar tube to the repaired area (see photo 185), where it is currently unattached?

    @Pcars Yes, Ossi Blue is the original color. Pic 96 shows the original Karmann badge that shows the color code 6803. https://www.rennbow.org/porsche-colors/OssiBlue

    As for undercarriage rust, the floor pans are in great condition. No rust, no holes, and are the original floor pans. The battery tray and suspension pan do have rust, especially on the driver's side. This is a very common rust area due to the battery and the replacement parts are readily available.

    Can you confirm OSSI is the original color? Rust in the front pan or floor?

  • VertexAuto (seller) 6 months, 2 weeksago

    @Maui928 Good point! Yes, this was actually addressed right after this video. It now ideals nicely just a tad over 1,000 RPMS. It just took a small adjustment/tune.

  • TRracer (registered bidder) 6 months, 2 weeksago

    Air Brigade looks at this 912 as an example of why a 912 is the ideal entry-level Air-Cooled Porsche: www.AirBrigade.com

  • Maui928 (registered bidder) 6 months, 2 weeksago

    Does the high idle in the video calm down to a normal level after a period of time? The car is already warm in the video so there may be some adjustment needed.

  • VertexAuto (seller) 6 months, 2 weeksago

    A walkaround and drive video have been submitted. I'm sure @pcarmerket will have them up shortly.

    Startup and driveby video would be appreciated!

  • VertexAuto (seller) 6 months, 3 weeksago

    @Maui928 Yes, a '69 LWB. I love the subtle changes between the 65,66,67,68, & 69.

  • VertexAuto (seller) 6 months, 3 weeksago

    @karlosism There is no documentation to prove how many times it's rolled over.

  • karlosism (registered bidder) 6 months, 3 weeksago

    How many times did the odometer roll over, if any?

  • Maui928 (registered bidder) 6 months, 3 weeksago

    This is a 1969 model year. Cool car; GLWTA!
