Door pockets, seats material and headliner are original. Floor pans are original; a new battery box was installed. Original numbered rear deck-lid grill is noted.

Correctly date coded steel wheels with hubcaps are mounted on newer Falken tires. Full Fuch style spare located in the front trunk area.



Dressed in standard black leatherette material, which shows a healthy amount of patina. Original seats with factory headrest (later production 912) Carpets are a bit thin and worn around both floorboards but would be an easy replacement.

Dash is wavy on the passenger side but free of cracks or splits.

Gauges are clear and operate as intended and there is a period radio mounted.


The Drive

After a test drive locally the car proved to be a quality driver in every way. Good clutch and syncro. Steering was tight for the nimble short wheel base example. Brakes responded and the suspension and overall ride was quite enjoyable. 

The car, which is listed on the 912 Registry, is also accompanied by its original Porsche Drivers Manual & Pouch. Offered exclusively with Mohr Imports Inc. out of the Monterey, California showroom with a clean California title in the seller’s name.
