We are particularly excited about our latest offering, an extremely early 1965 912 that we consider to be a historically significant car for Porsche enthusiasts. This 1965 Porsche 912 was completed in July 1965, and was the 421st 912 Built out of the initial production run of 700 912s built by the Reutter (then owned by Porsche) factory. 912s were also built by Karmann of the same year, but it is generally understood that Reutter/Porsche built bodies are of higher quality, and thus accepted as more valuable. Our 65 912 is in excellent condition inside and out, with the paint appearing as new, and the interior also being lovingly preserved. The paint appears at most 5 years old. The seat covers and carpeting are new, while the remainder of the interior remains in excellent original condition. One of the most distinctive traits, amongst many, of this first year 912 is the body color painted dashboard, in the same style as the 356. For only 1965, Porsche did not paint the gauge surrounds on the 912 Black, and started doing this in 66. These extremely limited, and extremely rare 912s are called the Painted Dash series of 912s. 1965 911s of this era received 5 gauges and the dashboard was painted black, making this unique and lovable trait only applicable to early 1965 912s. The COA confirms that this investment grade 912 retains its matching numbers engine in excellent condition along with its original color combination of Light Ivory over Black.
