Selling a 1967 Porsche 912 Soft Window Targa
German automaker Porsche would market the Porsche 912 as a car buyers could purchase if they didn’t want to spend the additional money on the power offered by the Porsche 911. In the beginning, it would outsell even the benchmark Porsche 911, making the 912 the best-selling Porsche at the time. In fact, the 100,000th Porsche ever built was a 912, in the guise of a German police car. Porsche constructed 2,562 Targa versions, accounting for just eight percent of total 912 models built. Powered by a 90 horsepower air-cooled 1.6L pushrod four-cylinder, Polish driver Sobieslaw Zasada would use a factory Porsche 912 to win the 1967 European Rally Championship for Group 1 series touring cars. While you may have not learned all these facts after owning a 1967 Porsche 912 Soft Window Targa, these are great tidbits of information to share with prospective buyers and to set your particular model apart from the rest.
1967 Porsche 912 Soft Window Targa
It is difficult to find a Porsche 912 with all original engine components, so buyers will be overjoyed if your model is original. Often, aftermarket parts are needed to keep them running over the course of forty years. Buyers will want to inspect the engine components and service history to ensure which pieces are original. If you have records of maintenance and repair, this is a plus. Rust can sometimes be a problem in 1967 Porsche 912 Soft Window Targa (and other 912’s) and it’s worth looking under the hood especially, where rain gutters were made to flow from windshield past the firewall. If leaks developed over time, condensation could have become trapped in these areas, including the footwells, to create rust that is difficult to see without close inspection. Buyers will want to know the extent of any rust damage. Parts can be difficult to come by in the Soft Window Targa considering its rarity; so close inspection of vehicle specific components (i.e. zipper around soft window) should be inspected to get an accurate idea of the work that may be needed. These are just a few of the most important Seller’s Tips.
