In 1965 Porsche 912 was the cheaper variant of the new Porsche 911 model with the 4 cylinder 1,6 liter engine derived from the previous 356 models. In the late 1960´s 912 became a very popular rally car in due to its better weight balance and handling.
This 1967 model 912 was delivered in early 1967 to Scania Vabis Rally Team in Sweden. The car was driven by Leif Nilsson during the rally season 1967. It was the best Porsche, 8th, in the KAK Rally in March 1967. There are some fabulous press pictures from the KAK rally when the car is oversteering on the ice track.
The car has had a rough life as many rally cars of the time have had. After 4 years of intensive work in 2017-2020 the car is now completely bare metal restored and returned to the original specification as it was in 1967. Even the correct number and advertisement decals from KAK rally are available. The rally specification from the factory was the Recaro seats, front and rear stabilisators, KONI shockabsorbers and dead pedal. Bosch Knick extra lights were installed in Sweden. Period correct rally equipment including Halda Twinmaster and Speedpilot have been installed.
The car is prepared for serious historic rally events and it has all the modern safety equipment including the roll cage. The 1,6 liter engine has been prepared by J-P Pukema together with Pit Schweiger from JPS Aircooled GmbH in Switzerland to a full rally specification. The gearbox has also been optimised with shorter 4th and 5th gear and with a differential lock.
