Up for auction is this 1969 Porsche 912 finished in Ossi Blue over a black leatherette interior. Combining the styling of the original Porsche 911 with the simplicity of a lightweight flat-four engine derived from the 356SC, the Porsche 912 has become increasingly sought after by Porsche collectors and air-cooled driving enthusiasts alike. Finished in the desirable shade of Ossi Blue, this long-wheelbase 1969 example was recently inherited by its current owner and has been treated to some noteworthy service items in preparation for sale. A beautiful driver-grade example, this 912 is now being offered for auction out of New York while showing approximately 73k miles on the 5-digit odometer.
Named after a town on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia, this 912 is finished in its factory specified color of Ossi Blue, an attractive shade that was only offered from 1968-1969. Some areas of the car have been refinished and the paint remains well presented overall with some cosmetic imperfections as depicted in the photo gallery. The rocker panels have been repaired and the original floor pans and glass have been retained. A considerable amount of the factory undercoating has also been preserved. This 912 rides on Stoddard reproduction 15” chrome ventilated wheels which are currently dressed in a set of period-style Vredestein Sprint Classic tires. A matching full-size spare wheel is included in the trunk.
Inside, the driver is greeted by a very well-preserved black perforated leatherette interior. The carpeting and leatherette dashboard trim strip have been previously replaced and the cabin stays true to its factory appearance with the correct steering wheel, seats, gauges, and Blaupunkt radio.
Power comes from a series-matching 356SC-derived 1600cc air-cooled flat-four (#4095452). This pushrod-type engine features dual Solex carburetors and is capable of sending approximately 100 HP to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox. Recent service items include rebuilt carburetors, new brake hoses and fluid, a new alternator, and an oil change. The seller reports this 912 to be in strong running order, just waiting to be driven and enjoyed.
This sale will include a spare tire, toolkit, and a clean title. Well sorted while retaining its factory appearance, this 912 makes the perfect driver for any air-cooled purist.
