1966 Porsche 912 Vintage Race Car


Spotted in Colorado Springs is a 1966 Porsche 912 Vintage Race Car for $39,995 USD.   This is a non-sunroof coupe that has been raced for many years.   It has campaigned in PCA and Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing by an ex-Navy pilot.   It was built and refined to be a reliable car – not a hand grenade. On tight tracks, it can still give many 911s a serious run for the money. With the theme of reliability, the engine was built with Weber 40 IDF Carbs, header with custom ‘stinger’ Supertrapp muffler. It runs 3 oil coolers – the stock one in the doghouse, an additional one in the engine bay, and another behind the driver’s headlight. The cam and valve train is mild, so the power band is broad, and there isn’t the danger of valve problems like with radical cams. This can be run for an enduro in 100 degree heat with no problems.   The transmission is a close ratio 912 box that has a slightly lower 5th gear to make it about 500rpm closer to 4th for track use. Koni shocks, sway bars, etc.  The paint and cosmetics are very good, even more so when you consider it’s a race car that’s been used. It doesn’t have nor has ever had any rust issues. It had fiberglass front and rear bumpers and rear decklid with 911R hinges. It weighs 1925lbs, with all glass windows – original Sekurit except for the windshield, so it could be MUCH lighter with some lexan and more fiberglass!
