Nothing is perfect: ’66 Porsche 912
This car may have some things going for it then again, it may not. We’ve become a bit gun-shy lately because we have seen a few examples of misrepresented Porsche 912s up close and first hand. True horror stories that makes one wonder why buyers don’t spend a little extra time and money for a Pre-Purchase Inspection. Today’s 912 was originally finished in 6608 and that readers is Aga Blue (unless the seller misread the color code). Aga Blue is a great color for an early 911/912. Someone painted this one Polo Red a while back. I guess it is presentable as is until valuations rise high enough to warrant a restoration. Perhaps you are handy yourself and have access to a rotisserie and welding experience? Have at it. These early 3 gauge cars with the slanted 912 script on the rear deck are among the earliest of its kind. Collectors like them for that reason. If you are not handy you may want to pass on this one. Paying a shop for a total redo is crazy. The asking price of $25,000 sounds good if you compare it to some nice examples with $50,000 price tags. Again, check it out before you proceed and that doesn’t mean just talking to the seller. Click here for the listing.
