Low mileage 912e?

Low mileage 912e?
Saw this posted yesterday.

They just had an awesome arrow blue 912 that they sold listed at 29 but it was a bit bright for my taste. Obviously this would represent the top of the 912e market, and I think it's probably more in the 30k range. I'm hunting for a car I can daily.

I've always been a fan of the 912s, and would love a long hood but wondering if the galvanized and type IV would make a better daily.

I quite like the copper gold color.

Any thoughts from the gallery?

I had a very nice one. Drives great around town. Not so much on the highway- too weak. The truck drivers will be breathing down your neck. Some like that (Ronnie)

The sound is another minus.

Easy to work on.

Mohrs car:

They say the paint is excellent!? So excellent that they also chose to paint the bolts for the rear lid mechanism. Overspray on VIN sticker and color code tag - stupid amateurs!

Exhaust is not original - an original Bishoff is around 2000 bucks.

Whats up with the door sides around speakers and lever?

Where is the service booklet?

Its a 20K car at best - dont buy it.

P.s. I dont believe the milage to be correct.

Boy, now I know one way to get Christian fired up. Get a 912E out there and get him to dissect it. Nice call Christian. Mohr usually has some nice cars, but this one may be a stinker with a trained eye.

They are not fully galvanized. They were built on leftover 75 bodies.

How would you as a buyer prove it to be not correct - I just call it like I see it. Easy to certify/guarantee what is impossible to clarify.

Do you trust car dealers in general? I sure dont!

Nope. The last half of them were fully galvanized - the ones produced from March '76 and onwards if I recall correctly - and I believe that I do.

This is gold. And i don't mean the color of the car. Good catches on things like the exhaust. I wouldn't have been able to tell that. I too was concerned about the over spray.

I appreciate the feedback.

This is also what I was aware of. Half are. Half are not.

In any case, it didn't look like a 35k car at all to me, but hence why I asked. You guys make me smarter.

Thanks for all the feedback everyone.

Sorry, I knew the end of production was galvanized but my point was you cannot assume it is. I should have stated it more accurately so the mad Dane didn’t get his panties in a bunch.

Here are three from Craigslist (no affiliation) The first two are pretty pricey and the last one needs a total restoration. FWIW, like many people I've always loved Ice Green Metallic.

That's a rip-cord for the ejection seats if the 86hp becomes too much for the occupants to handle!
