The 1969 912 is the last year of the early 912 and the only year 912 with a long wheel base body. Many people consider this year 912 to be the most collectible and valuable. The long wheel base cars handle higher speeds better than their earlier counterparts. Fuel efficiency of the 4 cylinder engine is in the 30 mile per gallon on the highway, almost double the 18 MPG of the same year 911 so you can drive this car on long road trips while using little fuel.

This particular car was originally purchased by Joseph W. on May 7th 1969 at Autohaus of Fairborn Ohio. It was originally optioned with a 5 speed transmission, chrome wheels, bumper guards, rear tow hook, antenna & loudspeaker. Total price for the car was $5852 and a $100 trade in allowance was given for Josephs 1960 Volkswagen Beetle. This transaction was recoded on the original dealer sales invoice which is included with the car, a very rare document to find with this old of a car. Another important document is the original maintenance booklet. This document lists the original selling dealer, the first buyer, and the Vin/Engine numbers. All cars were given a tool kit however a large majority of cars today are missing this item. This car has it original 100% complete tool kit. The car even has its original Porsche key fob, door/ignition key & glove box key. Also included are the original Sisal dealer optioned floor mats, there is a receipt dated a few days after the car was purchased for a wood shift knob, key fob, and floor mats. Joseph was an Air Force Pilot who was stationed outside of the USA for long periods of time, the car always remained in the US and was seldom driven which is why the car has such low miles today. Today the car has an amazingly low original 38,000 miles on it.

At some point the battery died in the car and it was put in storage. It sat unused in an enclosed garage for many years and was finally put up for sale. We acquired the car in a non running state and did all the service work needed to properly bring the car back on the road again. A comprehensive $12,000 service was completed and now the car runs like new. Everything from tires, to full brake job, to all new shift bushings to complete engine reseal & tune up was performed. There was some light paint and polishing work that was also done. It starts right up, idles perfectly, shifts smoothly, and drives down the road as smooth as can be. The body of this car has never driven in snow or rain, it has no rust issues and never has had any rust repair - this is a rare an important trait to have on a high quality vintage Porsche. The doors have a perfect ping sound to both of them when they are shut. There is something about a solid car that is just so hard to find these days, I assure any buyer - this is that solid car you have been looking for! You will look at 100 cars and only find one like this.

In summary this is a car you could drive across the country in. You could take it to a weekend show and everyone will love it. It is not a perfectly restored show car. It is not a worn out neglected car. It has the right amount of patina and just the right amount of that old Porsche smell (not in a bad way). It is old but has so many years left on it, its just like you! If you are looking for a no nonsense, matching number, high quality, no rust, no issues 912 then this is the car for you.
