Found a -6 project I couldn’t pass up on, and selling a 914 I actually bought last week.
It is a 1974 with what I believe is a 1.8. Recent work to fuel injection system and fuel lines. I’ve cold started it down to 10*F and it just required a couple cranks. No smoke on startup or anything alarming and plenty of power. Pulled hard to 70 when I drove it home.
Original paint is yellow, currently sports a “painted in a shed red” 15 foot job. Would probably clean up with a cut and buff but will never be ready for the concourse without a lot of love.
Clean Montana title, but I think it’s from california and Nevada based on oral history and stickers/receipts on the car. Extremely little rust. Hell hole appears solid. Apart from some surface rust in spots the car seems clean, but I wouldn’t say completely rust free as there is some surface corrosion around places like the battery tray and inside the back seam of the rear trunk.
It’s a great candidate to be a driver, bought it from a guy in town who had it stored in a barn for years so it needs some work with the brakes at a minimum to get this thing on the road daily. Like the ad says, it’s got a stuck caliper that I’m assuming is from a corroded piston, I haven’t dug into it yet.
Body is pretty good, some dents and dings but nothing too remarkable as it sits. It looks like there may be a bit of bondo on the passenger rear fender around the wheel opening.
Here is a link to the ad I have up for it. Interior is all there, but dirty with cracked dash and windshield. I have 3k into it, and would extend that deal to forum members.
When you have a chance tell us a bit about your six project.
