1967 Porsche 912

Trade Classics > Auctions > 1967 Porsche 912

PREVIEW

Coming soon to Trade Classics and currently on its way to the UK as we write this preview, a usable ‘daily driver’ example of a SWB 1967 Porsche 912.

This little 912 belongs to a very fastidious owner and friend of us here at Trade Classics; his name is Gary and we’ll let you know more about him and his car pedigree in the final auction description.

Gary tells us this is a great little car.  It’s very good mechanically and drives really well.  It’s a really sound example with no rot, however, it could benefit from a small amount of bodywork correction should the new owner desire.  In our opinion it’s a regular driver and should be driven and enjoyed.

The car is currently on its way back from Canada and will be on live auction here within the next two months at a very sensible reserve price that reflects the 7/10 rating given to us by Gary.

For many years the 912 suffered in the shaddows of its 911 bigger brother, however, in recent years people have started to realise how good these little flat 4s are and as such prices are on the rise.  A very sensible buy and wise investment considering the state of the market right now.

A full review and write-up of the car, along with comprehensive photo gallery and video documentation is on its way.

Quick update. The car has arrived in Kenilworth, having gone through the NOVA process and released by the shipping company. Next up is clean/valet and address a couple of the outstanding issues (like speedo) – then MOT and V5 application. If anyone wants to view, message here and we can arrange.

Hi Andy, you are very welcome to. I’ve responded on DDK. It may take a week for the car to get cleaned and readied for the MOT etc. Let me connect you with William, my son.

Thanks Adam for posting up the pictures. I would stress these were taken in a hurry, without any fettling and cleaning. It was just that I had the lift and wanted to take a few pictures of the underside. As you can see – they engine is clean – and was probably rebuilt when the transmission was re-built, but I have not paperwork as evidence. I do see gaskets and other evidence that the engine has been apart. It runs very well which tells me it has probably had some sort of rebuilt. I also note the steering rack looks… Read more »

hi Gary did I notice / hear correctly that it was running on three cylinders when you drove it on the ramp ? best Andy

Hi Andy. No, the car is running on all four cylinders perfectly. When I worked on the car after I bought it I found that the right hand Solex carb was not working properly. I took off the carb and found that the injector rod was not connected to the throttle linkage. I secured the rod and put it back on. I also found the gasket was not sealing properly between the carb and the inlet manifold creating a slight vacuum leak (which caused a slight lean misfire). I put a new gasket on and this sorted out completely the… Read more »

Hello Andy, thanks for the message. What I like about auctions, and Trade Classics in particular, is that we arrive at close (but generally a little lower) than ‘market’ price. There needs to be something in it for the buyer, and to cover the auction fee. Trade Classics is excellent in this regards. 6% is significantly cheaper than other auction businesses. In terms of value, let’s see how the auction pans out. I’m going to set a low reserve, so it will sell to the highest bidder – all things being equal. Please do feel free to see the car… Read more »

Hi Gary – any Idea what the estimate will be ? Best Regards Andy

There tends to be a debate about the pros and cons of the four speed v the 5 speed gearbox. I’ve had both – and I don’t see too much between them. The 4 speed is more a cruiser, and 5 for better acceleration. Given the relative low power of the 912, I slightly prefer the 4 speed.

The 912 will arrive into Southampton on the 5 March. It’ll then clear customs and get the NOVA sorted. I am estimating it will be possible to view the car from the 25 March onwards – located in Kenilworth. It may not have its MOT, and won’t be able to be test driven, but any interested bidders can see the car, engine running, and drive around the yard.

Seller here, Gary. Happy to answer any questions you may have on my 912. It is now on the water heading across the pond.

Hi Gary
When do you expect the car to arrive and be available for inspection
Many thanks

Good evening Mick – Hello. The car was loaded in Toronto two weeks ago (hopefully you’ve seen the video with me driving the car up the trailer ramp?). The sound as I get it up onto the ramp was the right wheel spinning by the way, not grounding. We expect the car to arrive into Southampton 10 March. Then its up to the garage to get it MOT’d and V5 issued. The jobs for the MOT should be: switching around lights at the rear cluster to get an amber indicator, replace the speedo angle mechanism at the gearbox, get the… Read more »
