CPR Classic is excited to offer this lovely 1966 Porsche 912
painted in Leaf Green with a black interior and green tartan
inserts. This 912 was acquired by CPR from a collector client in
Texas and presents as a very nice driver quality restoration
The exterior is finished in Leaf Green, a subtle and seldom seen
factory color. The exterior paint presents in excellent condition
with only minor imperfections. When the car was repainted, Talbot
mirrors were installed as well as a painted cover for the exhaust
cutout on the driver side bumper.
The exterior brightwork is mostly original and in very nice
condition throughout. The decos and weather stripping were replaced
after the car was repainted along with the horn grills, headlight
rings, and exterior lenses. The bumper guards are unrestored and
show very light amounts of pitting. Overall the fit and finish of
the exterior is very tidy and well executed.
The interior in the car is finished in black vinyl with added
tartan inserts. The door panels, dash, seats and headliner are all
in excellent condition. The gauges are original and in beautifully
preserved condition. When the interior was restored, the owner at
the time also chose to install a wooden shift knob and steering
wheel as well as an aftermarket horn button. CPR will install a
correct steering wheel, shift knob and recover the front seats if
the new owner would prefer.
The engine in the car is period correct and runs outstanding. It
remains in its stock 1.6L configuration and produces about 90
horsepower. The gearbox has standard gear sets and shifts nicely
through all four gears with a tight and sorted linkage. The engine
presents in very nice cosmetic condition with correct finishes.
The 912 was, until recently, one of the most underrated air-cooled
Porsches to consider as an enthusiast. Although not as powerful as
a 911, 912's offer a wonderfully nimble experience at the wheel.
Having a much lighter engine out the back, the car's balance is
excellent with great handling characteristics and a driving
experience that will constantly put a smile on your face.
This 66' 912 will serve its next owner as a perfect example to
drive regularly and take to Porsche events and Cars & Coffees. With
the ever-rising prices in today's classic Porsche market, this 912
still presents an opportunity to own an air-cooled Porsche for a
reasonable cost. Don't miss this lovely Leaf Green 912!
