Soft Window Targa
1967 Porsche 912 Soft Window Targa Originally Bahama Yellow
This is a very rare numbers matching 1967 Porsche 912 Soft Window Targa. Original color was the very attractive Bahama Yellow (paint code 6605). The original black leatherette interior remains in fair condition with cloth inserts in the front seats. The original engine with the improved European heater runs strong. Just completed installation of new fuel tank, replaced fuel hoses and rebuilt the original Solex carburetors. Valve adjustment, new spark plugs, new distributor cap and rotor and oil and filter changed. Original 5 speed 902/1 transmission. This is a desirable early short wheelbase 912. Correct 15″ x 4.5″ chromed steel wheels with correct caps. Documented with factory Kardex. This 1967 Porsche 912 Soft Window Targa is an excellent candidate for restoration.
Early Targas came with a “zip out,” flexible, plastic rear window, now commonly referred to as “soft window” Targas, or SWT. Porsche advertisements of the day show the car in four different configurations: top and rear window buttoned up; top off and rear window up; rear window down and top on; and both top and rear window off. Lowering the soft window requires the owner release two tension bar handles located inside the car under the Targa bar, and then unzip the window halfway around and lay it against the inside rear fire wall. An optional tonneau cover can be snapped in place to cover the flexible plastic window and give a finished “cabriolet” appearance to the open space.
