I mentioned a few weeks back how the Porsche 912 could serve as a worthwhile substitute for those entertaining the idea of finding a pre-1974 Porsche 911T and were perhaps less concerned with collector values. The two models share many similarities, but the 912 typically comes at a fraction of the cost. The car featured doesn’t make for the best comparison with a well-kept 911T, but it could make for an interesting alternative for any buyer who doesn’t mind taking on a bit of a project. Here we have an unrestored 1967 Porsche 912 looking for an owner who doesn’t mind putting in some work. The exterior appears to be Champagne Yellow, a very nice and period correct color.
Tag: Heap of the Week
“It was a running driving car when parked” has to be one of the most pointless things that is put into a used car advertisement. First off, in order to park, most cars needed to run. They need to drive to where they were parked. But then, something happened. Something happened that made you not go start the car again. Sure, we hear the stories from time to time about an owner who died, left the country, suddenly became completely uninterested in the car. But usually, those cars are first generation Ford Tauruses or Jeep Wranglers; it’s not often that they’re a 1987 BMW M6. Well, we do get the typical ad lines – selling for a friend’s widow, car ran when parked, looks good when sprayed with water. But with the frenzy of activity in the M market these days, is it worth the risk to step into a legenary S38-powered M6 that’s been sitting for 15 years?

Need something to keep you busy in the continuing grey days of winter? How about a pair of 500SECs projects to keep you out of trouble? (Well actually this may get you into trouble, financially or with your significant other) Carter also noticed this ride and linked it off our Facebook page.
Here we have what appears to be yet another case of picking up the pieces where a previous enthusiast ran out of time, money, or interest, but the seller instead states that they are selling due to illness. This may mean that the projects aren’t as bad as the ones being sold because someone got in over their head. Eitherway though that picture above shows a once great car looking sad. Not horrible though, we’ve seen a lot worse, but look at it just sitting there in a pile of leaves all cold and alone.
What we actually have is a rare, but non-running rare Koenig widebody 500SEC and a not as rare, but running parts car.
