This 1976 Porsche 912E was purchased new on June 14, 1976 at T.N.M. Lathrop Porsche in Niantic, Connecticut by a Dr. Rowe. Finished in metallic silver over a black interior, this non-sunroof example features 15″ ATS wheels and black side stripes. Power comes from a 3.0-liter M930 flat-six mated to 5-speed 915 manual gearbox, both sourced from a 911SC. The seller acquired the car a month ago, and 147k miles are now shown on the odometer. This flat-six-powered 912E is offered at no reserve in Pleasantville, New York with a tool roll, owner’s manual, and a clean South Dakota title in the seller’s name.
The exterior is finished in a metallic silver and features a single chrome sideview mirror along with European-style H4 headlamps with chrome bezels. The car was reportedly repainted eight years ago and is not equipped with a sunroof. An invoice in the gallery shows that the front floor pan was replaced by Rennwerk in Elmsford, New York in 2011. A 911 badge has been added to the engine lid.
15″ ATS “cookie cutter” wheels are mounted with Michelin Premier tires showing 2015 date codes. A strut tower bar has been in the front trunk, and black Porsche-script side stripes are present above the rocker trim.
The cabin is equipped with comfort seats upholstered in black, as well as a white perforated headliner. Photos of the floor panels beneath the black carpets can be seen in the photo gallery below. Additions include rear lap belts, Rennline floor boards, and a fire extinguisher in the passenger foot well. Some scratches are evident on the driver’s door pocket.
A later-model Porsche steering wheel is installed along with a Pioneer head unit and a 911-spec tachometer and oil gauge. 147k miles are shown on the odometer, 300 of which were added by the seller in the last month.
The 3.0-liter M930 flat-six reportedly came from a 1982 911SC. The seller states that a top-end rebuild was done before the engine was installed about 10 years ago, and photos show oil lines for 3.2L Carrera-style pressure-fed chain tensioners. The oil was changed and the alternator belt was adjusted in September 2018. Cylinder pressure tests showed 110-125 psi and 4-7% leak down across all six cylinders. The 5-speed 915/63 manual gearbox is also said to be from a 1982 911SC, and the shift lever received new bushings in 2011.
Some receipts are included in the sale along with the factory owner’s manual. Videos below include a walk-around, cold engine start, and in-car driving.
