Early 911 and 912 cars are special in that they are the first generation of a well know legacy. Years ago the first generation 911 and 912 cars were cast aside as not as good as their newer versions. The first generation of a model always has some quirky troubles that get worked out. True the technology and revisions really improved the cars over the years but there is just something about having one of the first ones. This car is a first generation 1966 912 with a 3 gauge dash. The unique gauge cluster is just one of the many details that denote a car built in the first 2 years of production; other details include unique rear decklid emblems, early recessed fog light covers, bumperettes with no rubber trim, dished door handle buttons, unique ignition switch bezel, screw on shift knob (that can accept a 356 knob), early door latches, early engine mount, 15x4.5" Lemmerz steel wheels, early window cranks. While this car is built too late to be a factory delivered "painted dash" car it is early enough that the dash could be painted white when the body is painted and still be accepted by the critics.
This is a project car found in a local San Diego garage where it has sat since 1988. Obviously this has always been a California car as it still has both original black/yellow license plates on it, the plate number matches the pink slip tittle. I believe this to be a matching number car based on the 1966 Vin number and 1966 engine number that fall in line with what should be in this car. This car is sold AS-IS with no warranty. Unfortunately I do not have any documentation/paperwork with this car other than the clear title. The original paint tag shows code 6604 which is Light Ivory, the original interior color was red which really accents the car well. This car will look amazing when finished in white with a red interior! Note that some of the original red interior was painted black.
This car is ready for a paint job to your level of quality. This is a complete un-damaged original car that will be a fun project to get it back on the road. Almost no rust, original floor pans, original rockers. The floor pan has a small area that has been properly repaired in the past. There are a couple of small rust holes, in interest of full disclosure, but these tiny couple holes are nothing compared the rust that most of these cars see. Compared to the majority of projects this car is relatively very rust free. See pictures for details. The following picture is what this car will look like after paint.
Having not been driven for 24 years the car needed a few things to bring it back to life. I was told the engine was in running condition so when it got to the shop we did a compression test. The test showed good numbers in all 4 cylinders. The carburetors were shot so we rebuilt them. Distributor was cleaned out and adjusted. Oil drained and filter removed. New plugs, oil/air filters, cap/rotor were fitted and it fired right up. All of the sift bushings have been replaced and the pedal assembly was rebuilt. All brakes have been serviced - new master cylinder, rebuilt 4 calipers, new brake pads, new rubber brake lines. A new set of tires were fitted to the original correct 15x4.5" steel wheels.
This car is a running driving car but it has not been on the road for some time. It needs to be registered and some final mechanical items sorted and it could then be a driver. A cosmetic restoration should be performed and then it will be a great car. It would have no problem driving onto a transport truck or into a container and then shipped to you. Worldwide shipping is not a problem.
