1968 912 junker reincarnation

OK, I have been at my project for 3 years at least, on and off, with interruptions for other P car madness. I must be crazy. Anyway, I have been lurking on Pelican for years with only minimal posts but I think the time has come to start a thread on my project. I owe so much to the Pelican community as far as ideas and bits and pieces. The project will probably take a long time even from where I am now but here goes....

Starting place, about three years ago, a 1968 912 with no drivetrain and weak everything.

I will post a few pics of where I am now, and then I will fill in the history over the next few weeks when I get time to post.

Holy cheesy tub

When I stripped the chassis it was a pretty cheesy mess. It is unbelievable when I look back and I know most of you Pelicanites would send this sorry piece to the crusher but I live way up north in Canada and I wanted a challenge and something to do early Saturdays and Sundays mornings over the long cold winters. I should say that I am a novice at automotive restoration but I have a buddy who is fearless and amazingly talented who does all the hard stuff and I do all the grunt work. Check out the rust !!

Early rust repairs.

The rust repair work went on and on and on. Cut, patch, weld, grind, repeat over and over and over !!!

Yes, It's better than ice fishing

Here are a few more repairs in the rear seats area.

The ol' mortar and pestle encouragement method.

That is impressive. All the work is. Nice job.

Thanks Bob, I have lots of pics of the bring back from the dead process that I will post over the next few days. I also have lots of goodies that I have found along the way that will go into the finished project. It seems to take a long time to load up the pictures. In the end it will be halfway between an old 911s and 911r. Not one for the purists but I will love it.

First parts car

I picked up a 73 parts car that actually looks better than the 68 from 50 feet. The truth is the 68 got most of it's rust sitting in a field in the south. The seals dried out and the rain went in rusting out all the low places where rainwater sits. The 73 was a Canadian car and it's rust condition was more terminal and poorly repaired over the years. The car was more bondo than metal. However it had some great donor metal and was actually pretty solid in areas that I needed. Also it had a metal S front spoiler, deep sixes and a 2.4 that actually ran. The 2.4 ended up in my buddy's 75 Targa for a time while he built a 2.7. Also included was a 901 5 speed, etc. I have kept all the long hood bits for a potential future project. For now I am set on building a hot, light SWB.





Oh yeah I used part of the tunnel out of the 73 as well.

Hello Rich

Rich Lambert's car is oh so beautiful. Rich, I had a pic of your car as my screen saver for a couple of years and it's your car that made me lose my mind enough to do this project. I have some really cool goodies to go into it.

Please stay tuned. I can't tell you how much I value your input.

I am afraid I made a few mods that aren't quite original SWB but I hope you will forgive me. PS your new garage is a beauty as well.

moving on to the sills and the floor

One sill was non existent and the other wasn't too bad. I think the car was listing while sitting in the field letting the rain run to the lower side and sill.

OK now floor and edges

The old tub came with new floor pans that someone brighter than me decided to throw in with the tub, and sell it to a sucka...me. Here are a few pics of the floor and area repair.
