914World.com _ FS/WTB: 914 Parts _ WTB Porsche 914-6 Airbox & Snorkel (and a few other bits)

Posted by: johnlips Nov 6 2019, 12:16 AM

Looking for a period plastic airbox and snorkel for a 1970 914-6. Just picked up an original Six missing a few parts. A beautiful car throughout, I'd rather have the correct airbox rather than the rain hats that came on it.

Also looking for one (1) Fuchs 6Jx15 (date 10/75... now I know this is a long shot).

Could use a good condition Blaupunkt Frankfurt as well.

Just located the correct 380mm leather steering wheel needing resto. Any advice on where to get recovered would be greatly appreciated.

Dallas custom steering wheel.

If you want the paint color on the spikes to be correct, get it painted yourself with SEM trim black, then send it to Dallas.

Are you looking for mono or stereo version of the Blaupunkt Frankfurt?

Thanks Boss. I’ll look up Dallas and the paint is in good shape!

Well the Six currently has two speakers and a late model CD player. That’s getting tossed for originality. The COA doesn’t specify whether the Frankfurt was mono or stereo, so any input you may have would be greatly appreciated. I’m going for originality.

I appreciate it!

Rebel Racing sells a nice air box, not stock, not cheap, but carbon fiber and very cool looking.

Sounds nice but not for me. Post a pic, would love to see it.

I have a Blaupunkt Wolfsburg from my 1970 /4, including the original speakers. Radio is mono - 2 speakers, but they both play the same thing.

I also have a really early steering wheel dated 10/69 (914.347.804.10) Not sure if /6 steering wheels are different from early /4's. Others will chime in.

I'll post pics.

Hi, thanks for posting. Unfortunately it doesn't work for me. From my research about steering wheels, it appears to be a 380mm from a 4cyl.

Best,
John

Really just interested in the airbox, snorkel, and bases. I have the other pieces you mentioned. If the price is right, I'd consider all of it.

Best,
John

I have both versions of the Blaupunkt Frankfurt (mono & stereo) what is your budget? Radio plus all the install parts is not cheap.

I’m interested. I do have one or two of them somewhere but can’t locate them off hand. What would you need to get for a complete stereo setup with the clips and correct knobs?

Would love to see your new car (!), and may have an original 914-6 snorkel I am not using. Need to do some digging.

You might get lucky on that 15x6 with a 10/75 date stamp over on the early911sregistry forum, and there may be some good info on restoration of early stock steering wheels, too!
