1969 Porsche 912 LWB
We are very proud to offer this beautiful 1969 Porsche 912 LWB MY.
The car was manufactured in September 1968 and is a left hand drive 1969 Model Year car. It was imported into the UK in 2013 from the arid state of Idaho and was kept in storage until it was first registered in the UK in 2017. The chassis and bodywork is in very good condition for a car off this age; the “kidney bowls” and “smugglers cabin” etc – being free of rust.
This is the most desirable spec of the 912, being the long wheel base version manufactured only in the final year of production. The 1969 MY had a longer wheelbase and also wider wheel arches to accommodate the optional 15” x 6” Fuchs wheels, with which this car is fitted, being shod with period correct Pirelli Cinturato Verde 175/65 25 84T tyres.
The former owner was the first person to own the car in the UK – it comes with a UK V5 that states zero former owners. We have an original 912 manual, lots of maintenance receipts for work that’s been carried out on the car with no expense spared! One of the original keys remains and all the locks match this key. It has matching numbers and comes with a Porsche Certificate Of Production (formerly called Certificate of Authenticity, COA). The car is in its original colour of Burgundy Red.
It also had slightly more power from the factory (103 hp as opposed to 90 hp of the SWB). This car was fitted with the optional 5 speed manual gear box and cruises comfortably at speed.
The previous owner has been a faithful custodian off the car and various items have been attended to with all receipts kept (totalling £6k), including wheel alignment and suspension refurbishment at a Porsche specialist and fitment of new Weber 40 IDF carburettors. The car is mechanically sound and has been regularly MOTd despite being exempt.
The interior has the original “salt and pepper” carpets and original seats in black vinyl. The dashboard is worn, but is entirely original and contains the 5-dial instrument panel.
Part exchange welcomed.
