Ziebarted from new?
In contrast to the charm of the well-preserved Speedster, an American listing for this 1967 Porsche 912 showed what can happen when storage conditions are less than ideal. It appears this four-cylinder coupé had a hard seven or eight years on the road – first in Massachusetts and then in Ohio – after which it spent 40 years in a damp, unpaved cellar.
The extent of the corrosion is painful, with Fred Flintstone floors, frilly edges to almost every panel and the lower eight inches behind the rear wheels missing. Despite all this, there’s a Ziebart sticker in the window. Was the famous wax protection ever applied, or did an unscrupulous garage just charge for a sticker?
Despite an optimistic online ad description that called the body ‘extremely straight’, we believe the car failed to sell as a going concern.
