1967 Porsche 912

[ translate ]

Lot details Registration No: LKE 472E Chassis No: 458782 MOT: Exempt Desirable pre-1968 SWB model complete with correct 5-gauge dashboard Current ownership since c.2016 and imported and registered to the UK in 2018 Subject to a bodywork restoration, repaint and engine overhaul in the current ownership Fitted with big bore piston and cast cylinders Offered with a current V5C and a collection of invoices First appearing in July 1964, the birth of the 911 marked the end of 356-production. Customers immediately noticed the differences from its predecessor - but with many improvements came a large price increase - the 911 was around $2,000 more than the comparable 356 model. Thus, by April 1965 a "middle ground" was achieved. The new 912 (essentially a 911 with a four-cylinder 356 engine) was less expensive and customers quickly noticed better weight distribution and better economy. Eventually outselling the 911 in the years it was current, more than 30,000 had left the Stuttgart factory by the time production ceased in 1969. One particular change during 912 manufacture came in its final year, 1969, when the wheelbase was increased from 2211mm (SWB) to 2268mm (LWB). The engine and rear suspension stayed in the same position but the suspension trailing arms were lengthened. This necessitated the rear wheel arches being moved rearward too. A desirable pre-1968 SWB 912, complete with the correct 5-gauge dashboard, this example is a 1967 model year, built in the earlier production year of 1966 (from the (458782 chassis number). It has been in current ownership since c.2016 and subsequently imported and registered in the UK in 2018. It had been stored in the State of Ohio for 30 years, with its previous keeper. ‘LKE 472E’ has been the subject of bodywork restoration, a repaint and engine overhaul in the current ownership. The bodywork was restored and repainted some 5 years ago, having been originally finished in the same Golf Blue paintwork. Engine-wise the engine was overhauled and fitted with a 1720cc big-bore piston kit with cast cylinders. Benefitting from Continental tyres all around, it has had attention to the braking system, including caliper pistons and pads, and is expected to be driven to the sale if the weather allows. It is offered with a current V5C, a small box of spares and a collection of invoices. For more information, please contact: James McWilliam james.mcwilliam@handh.co.uk 07943 584760
