Beverly Hills Car Club has a reputation for stocking classics and exotics in “ambitious” project condition, to put it lightly. This latest listing for a 1967 Porsche 912 raises the bar in terms of optimistic seller description and pricing at $3,950 obo. We sometimes jokingly ask if a car’s spent the last decade at the bottom of a lake, but this really looks like it might have. Actually, it looks like it rolled down a hill into a lake, where it sat for a decade. Look, if you’re selling what’s left of a car as a parts donor, just identify it as such. Or save us all the trouble; break it down into its constituent parts and list each one on eBay.
Instead, we’ve got a…
Porsche 912 Short Wheel Base Coupe with matching numbers with a dark blue exterior and black interior. Complete with the engine and transmission and carburetors. The engine alone as you can see from recent ebay listings for around $3,500. Great value. Will make a strong parts car.
Um, no. Surveying the commendably complete photoset, it looks like one might salvage the wheels, a few pieces of glass, parts of the seats and the shifter handle. I refuse to believe the engine and trans aren’t seized solid and the carbs wouldn’t disintegrate upon cleaning.
Maybe I’m way off base and there’s nearly $4k worth of parts to be pulled from this literal heap? Maybe our resident Porsche guy can weigh in.
