This is a nice 1969 Porsche 912, priced to sell, 99965 miles, matching numbers, 5-speed, LHD, resprayed in its original factory colour of Irish Green (Kunstharzlack 6806) with tan interior, Blaupunkt radio, and steel wheels. The car starts on the button and is running, driving and stopping well, with full NOVA clearance (all UK/EU import duties/taxes paid), a new set of tyres, new fuel tank, and a new battery. It is all-original, and a prime candidate for restoration, with its original factory maintenance records showing service stamps dating back to September 1969. As we all know, these cars have skyrocketed in value in the last few years, with fully-restored examples attaining in excess of £75,000 at auction. Apart from being a beautiful, classic design icon - and a great investment - they are reliable, economical (30 mpg), and simple to maintain. They are also getting increasingly hard to find, especially at this price point.
This car could also be MOTd and driven as is. The body looks good from ten feet, but the paintwork is not great has been badly filled in places. The undercarriage is generally not bad, but will require some welding around the rear torsion bar mount, and possibly a couple of other locations. The front end and battery area are (unusually) solid overall; the interior is not that bad, the glass is all in good condition, the rear pop-out windows and front vent triangles all work well, and the lights are all functioning. The original driver's handbook, spare wheel and jack are all present. Here are some other areas that definitely need immediate attention: the headliner is missing; the interior door handles are not working; the driver's side window is not going up (needs new regulator), the dash has a crack in the centre, and the driver's seat has a couple of splits in it.
These should all be relatively minor jobs for someone who knows these cars - interested parties are strongly encouraged to come and view the car, which is located near Lavenham in Suffolk. Many more photographs can be viewed at:
