This is an outstanding reference for anyone interested inrestoring or researching a vintage Porsche 912 or 911. I found thisbook to be quite good with respect to details about the trim andinstrumentation of early 912s... I would have rated the book five stars if color photography had been incorporated: The text and informational portions of the book certainly deserve the highest rating.
Part of the adventure that is restoring an early 911 is coming to terms with the often inaccurate and conflicting information available. The fact that during the mid-60s the Porsche Factory was geared less toward delivering an absolutely predicatble and consistent product doesn't help either. The fact is, when attempting to restore an early car to original you're going to have to believe somebody, and basically this book is the Gospel. True, the next edition really deserves colour photography (for that try "Original 911") -- but this book is really the most accurate assemblage of early 911 data I've found. If you buy this book you have no excuse but to do a great job of returning your Porsche to it's beautiful, pristine and authentic state. So buy it.
The book could have been formatted a bit better for easier use and reference, but it certainly contains a lot of useful information. In restoring my '67 912 it has been valuable in such areas a interior appointments, body details, and manufacturing dates. In an update edition paint chips and more year-by-year photos would be of help. Anyone bringing one of these beauties "back from the dead" should have this book and just plain Porsche fans will find it interesting.
