In December 30th 1965, Mr. Reynolds brought his 356 to his local dealership, Gardner Motors out of Fresno California.
In the dealership showroom, the 912 was beautifully displayed, and without hesitation Mr. Reynolds noticed the improvements over his 356, different styling and more interior space. The grey over red was the perfect combination, and Mr. Reynolds sat down with the salesman and traded his 356 plus $5394.47 to complete the deal on a new 912.
