Ladies and Gents
I recently purchased a lovely 66 912 project to build as a little hotrod.
I am getting cold feet as I have just realised I have neither the space nor the time to do anything with the project in the near future. In addition, I am renting a super cool warehouse space to store and work on the car, but it’s not cheap.
Here are the details of the car:
· Make: Porsche
· Model: 912
· Year: 66 (built late 65);
· Colour: originally Light Ivory, but currently donning primer;
· Country of Delivery: German (LHD);
· Engine: Non-matching 2.0L Porsche 914 engine. Engine has slightly more aggressive cams and additional fan shroud.
· Gearbox: Porsche 901 tranny;
The car is currently set up as a rust-free rolling chassis and is now ready for panel fitment, body prep and paint.
The shell was sandblasted and all rust was removed from the car – floor pans; suspension pans; inner and outer door sills; door jams / strikers; rear quarters; rear window bottoms; plus misc patches here and there were removed and new panels welded in by Kustom Kombis in the Central Coast.
It appears the previous owner was planning on building a 912-6 (i.e. a 912 with a 6 cylinder 911 engine), or the shell may have been “updated” in a past life, as the engine mounts are from a 911.
I pounced on this car a few months ago. Of all the longhood project cars that I’ve at over the past 5 years, this was the first truly rust free one. Hard to say no to that!
The car is currently a roller and comes with all body panels (except a front bumper) and all major components.
This will make a serious hot little SWB hotrod. And, most importantly, a blank canvas. If you have the time and space, this will be a very cost effective hotrod build!
