Description

This particular Porsche 912 Coupé, a 3-dial dash car, was supplied new through Chuck Iverson Inc of Newport Beach California in June 1966 where we believe it stayed until importation to the UK in 1999, a true black plate car, specified with the desirable 5-speed gearbox option.  In need of some attention at that time, the required refresh was placed in the hands of Specialist Vehicle Preparations of Droitwich in 2014 who were tasked with rebuilding the 912 to FIA specification with the required FIA HTP papers being issued upon completion.

Subsequently, and now in the hands of the present owner, a mechanical overhaul was deemed necessary with Francis Tuthill being the go-to workshop. A full engine and gearbox strip and rebuild followed to original 1600 specification including, amongst other things, new barrels and pistons, heater boxes, Solex carburettors and a balanced bottom end, all personally built by Francis Tuthill who estimated 120 – 130 bhp upon completion.

Now resplendent in its original hue of Gulf Blue, new carpets, sound deadening and door cards have just been fitted to finish this outstanding 912. It should be noted that the FIA HTP papers issued in 2014 expired in 2019 but we understand that new papers could be issued with very little investment. Complete with extensive history files including its original hand and service books, American paperwork, general invoices for works completed, and the FIA HTP papers from 2014, this is an outstanding Porsche 912 with potential as a fast road or a race / rally car should you be so inclined. Your early inspection is welcomed and encouraged.
