Fitted with the rare limited edition 5 speed gearbox and finished in Glacier white with RS bodywork, this matching numbers 912 has undergone a complete bare metal restoration in Nov 2011 by one of the UKs leading Porsche Specialists and has only travelled 11,000 miles since completion.
We are informed that the bodywork is in excellent condition with very good shut lines and zero corrosion, dents or scratches and with the original Fuchs wheels (5 –unmarked). All new windows rubbers were installed in 2011 and the underside and chassis of the car is also like new, no rust or corrosion. Original 911 RS Carrera front bumpers and rear duck tail are also in excellent condition. The interior of the car is no different, with beautiful original leather in outstanding condition, the rear seats have been virtually unused and are simply as new. Both front seats are in stunning order, with very little use since being fully restored. Original roof headlining with nice patina. All carpets are again as new. With most classic Porsches the clocks cease to function, however this 912 has a working clock and also the original Becker stereo and loudspeaker. (In addition, there is an iPod/iPhone connector so external music can be played).
The original 1600cc engine and gearbox have been fully refurbished and run smoothly without smoking or tapping and as Porsche intended. The engine pulls cleanly with no fuss at all. Frequently serviced and currently MOT’d. Both engine and engine bay are extremely clean, again with zero corrosion and no leaks. The cars fastidious owner has also had the twin Solex carbs removed, cleaned and all new gaskets/rubbers installed and valve clearances re-set, and the engine is now described to “run like a dream”. Recently the brakes have also been tended to with all the old brake fluid flushed out and all new brake fluid installed. Garaged over the winter period and driven only in the summer to attend occasional car shows and leisurely Sunday drives to the local pub, the car is described to always drive very well. Thanks to its limited edition yet matching numbers 5-speed gearbox the car is even more enjoyable to drive to many of its counterparts and is said to be very economical.
The car is provided with a current MoT, Porsche COA, spare keys & original master key with Porsche stamp. Numerous photos & video of the restoration available on request.
