65/66 912 look and runs great. Irish green   Price: 55000
1st year production 912:

After all of the hard work and money I put into this 912, I really don't want to sell it but I should since I wiped out my savings paying for this car. I bought the car 3 years ago from my neighbor in AZ were it had been used and stored for 40 years. He was the 2nd owner and bought the 912 when it was only 3 years new. I had no intentions of fully restoring this car when I bought it but one thing led to another and here it is:

Body: Fully stripped the car down to the bare metal and had every possible body part removed. Had the car blocked, primed and then shot in original 6406 Irish Green PPG. The paint is near flawless. I kept all the original glass but installed new rubber everywhere and had all the door frame/parts re-chromed. The engine compartment and frunk were sanded, primed and then repainted also. The painted dash is original paint from the factory. The 5 gauge cluster was a special order item dealer installed.

Drivetrain: The engine was rebuilt with new larger P&C to 110HP and matched with a custom exhaust and is the best sounding 912 I have heard. It is throaty, responsive and relatively fast. It growls in between shifts and is amazing to drive. The trans had the 1/2 synchro replaced and the whole unit re-sealed and is a 5 speed. The carbs are stock Solex's and have been difficult to get where they are now. They are not perfect but if fires right up and run very well. Jeff at Aase Motors has done the majority of the work on the motor/carbs etc. The engine was just tuned including valves by Hergesheimer Motorsports and runs very smooth and idles well.

Interior: I tried to keep as much original as possible but some things just had to be replaced including, the headliner, steering wheel, trim pieces, rear dash and an extra set and new door panels. I have the original door panels in now and they look worn but I like them better. The seats, carpet, front and rear panels are original. I had the clutch/brake/accelerator assembly fully disassembled, rebuilt and painted so it feels tight and works flawless. Bushings in the shifter were also replaced.

Suspension: The rear shocks have been replaced, bushings on the trailing arms front tie rods and bushings etc. There are no squeaks or pulling issues and the front was aligned. New tires also. I have 2 wheelsets, stock steel rims and 14" fuchs with brand new Michelins.

I can email more pics and video's, price is firm
