MB Vintage Cars is only a few hours from Moto Roster HQ and seem to have a constant supply of SWB Porsches for sale. Their offerings generally range from rusty rollers where the value is basically in the VIN, to nice clean drivers. This one is much closer to the clean driver side of things, but it is just shabby enough to get our attention. What's your guess on the price?
This 1967 Porsche 912 is listed on eBay and TheSamba and it looks like it has the potential to be a nice driver. It has low miles, the original engine, replaced floorboards, and non-matching 4-speed.
There is some rust under the older respray but other than that, the body looks free of any major defect. There are waves and imperfections in just about every picture, but it's a good level of wear.
The engine bay looks extremely neat and the underside presents well with older replacement floorboards looking practically perfect compared to the rusty originals we normally see. It looks like there are some new brake lines peeking through as well though no real mention is made of service.
There is one shot of the underside that we can't quite place, but it almost looks like an elbow from a black pipe. We're drawing a blank on what it is, but hopefully we're just confused by the angle and it's something obvious.
We're interested in any 912 within a 200 mile radius of our home garage, but this one caught our eye because most of its downsides are cosmetic. The updated interior likely cost a non-trivial amount of money, but it sticks out poorly in this 912 and would need to be replaced. The paint job is older, and a bit sloppy but due to it's age at least we don't think it's hiding anything too insidious. We'd also be curious as to what necessitated the 4-speed replacement.
Other minor issues include some missing trim, mis-installed trim, an off putting aftermarket radio and whip antenna. Again, all minor details, but they push things further into driver territory.
The bubble is still intact so we don't think this one will work out for our plans, but if we could get into this one for the low 20's, we'd buy it, strip out that interior and start driving, fixing, and tuning as we go.
We're reminded of another 1967 912 out in California that we featured a few weeks ago. That one sold for about 26k and maybe had less going for it than this one.
Find this 912 on eBay outside of Cleveland, OH.
