This highly original and outstanding 1968 Porsche 912 was completed on May 6, 1968 and imported by Porsche of America Corporation in Teaneck, New Jersey. It was sold to its first owner on 6/18/68 by Connecticut Volkswagen and Porsche dealer, Ted Trudon, Inc., with 35 miles on the odometer. From the original date of purchase to 2005, an extremely detailed log was kept by the owners and the entries included everything from service work, parts purchases, cosmetic freshening, driving impressions and winter storage procedures. Each entry in the more than twenty-five handwritten pages includes the date and odometer reading. In addition to the notes, another sixty pages of receipts are on hand and although the notes end in 2005, the receipts go all the way to present day. In the past year, this 912 received a service and tune-up that included new spark plugs, a full chassis lubrication, new sway bar bushings, new shocks, new brakes all around and the clock was repaired. On the road, it feels very solid, drives and brakes straight and is well-tuned.

In its present condition, the car presents extremely well and looks a lot more restored than original, however the reverse is true. The body is in excellent condition without any noticeable dents, dings or rust. The Sand Beige paintwork has been sympathetically restored as needed and quite a bit of the exterior is wearing original paintwork. Meter readings range from 2.8 mils to just over 10 (a mil is .001/inch) and are only slightly higher in the left rear corner. The exterior trim is very good except for minor pitting in the front quarter windows. The glass, lights and reflectors all show very well. The wheels and hubcaps have chrome that is even and bright and the Vredestein Sprint Classics have a lot of tread and are from 2017. The interior is mostly original and excellent for being so, which is good because many 1968-only interior features are not currently available. This is an exciting opportunity to purchase a 912 that has it all - condition, historical documentation and a matching numbers driveline.
