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.
