1967 Porsche 912 Sunroof Coupe
Currently finished in Light Ivory with Black leatherette
upholstery. This is a running and driving 912 that can be driven in
its current condition or can be restored. The 1600cc engine is
matching per COA. Options include a rare electric sunroof, wooden
steering wheel, Koni shock absorbers, and Talbot sport mirror.
Complete with spare tire, ownership history spanning from
1994-2005, and Certificate of Authenticity. Electric Sunroof Coupes
are very rare and seldom are seen, this option was a special order
from Porsche at a cost of $400.
Earliest known ownership starts in 1994 with Mr. Kenyon. A year
later, Mr. Long, from Phoenix, Arizona, purchased this vehicle. In
the early 2000s, Mr. Long, had the sunroof repaired and a top-end
of the original engine was rebuilt both performed by Don Jackson
Enterprises in Phoenix, Arizona. The current owner purchased this
912 in late 2004 and had the transmission rebuilt by Carquip, Inc
in Boulder, Colorado.
In 1966 Porsche made the change to make all dashboards matte black
and feature a decorative band of brushed aluminum. The bumper
guards, which had been chrome through 1966, now incorporated a
rubber strip. Inside the car, a 5-gauge dashboard became standard
in 1967, with the additional gauges being a clock and an ambient
temperature gauge. On rare sunroof optioned cars, drainage vents
were moved from just above the upper corners of the window to the
internal drainage channel of the rear decklid. Roughly about 2-3%
of all factory Porsches made in 1967 were special ordered with the
power sunroof option.
