After over 11 years of ownership, my 914 is up for sale. A Boxster has followed me home and taken the 914's spot in the garage, so the 914 must go. If you are looking for a show car, you can look elsewhere. This is not it. This is a driver. Comfortable on the street and perfectly capable as a daily driver. But also extremely competent as a weekend autocrosser. I have run this car in autocrosses with PCA throughout my ownership, and is capable of top 10-15 overall finishes with the GGR PCA series - only beaten by dedicated race cars and and other Porsches costing 10, 20, or even 30 times as much. Really quite amazing for a little old 914 with ~100hp.

- 1974 914 2.0 (modified motor, see below)
- Signal Orange color
- Chrome bumpers
- Garaged for last 11 years, very seldom driven in the rain.
- Motor: 2056cc, #73 webcam, 8.3:1 compression). Under 20K miles on rebuild. Built to last 100K miles.
- Stock D-Jet fuel injection
- Stainless Steel Heat Exchangers
- Custom Flowmaster muffler - no anemic sounding VW here. But if you prefer, I'll swap it with a Bursch for lower noise.
- Pertronix Electronic Ingition
- Ceramic Lifters (NLA, probably worth nearly $1000 alone)
- External oil cooler with fan (mounted under rear trunk)
- Transmission in good shape. Replaced 3 years ago and gone through at that time.
- 5 lug conversion (done with stock parts)
- 6x16 polished Fuchs all around
- 205/55-16 RS-2 High performance tires (under 5K miles on them)
- 180 pound rear springs
- 19mm adjustable front sway bar
- Elephant Racing Poly-Bronze trailing arm bushings.
- Turbo Tie-Rods
- Fuel pump moved to front trunk
- Optima sealed battery.
- Front-to-rear fuel lines replaced with steel (original are plastic)
- Momo 'Competition' steering wheel
- Carbon fiber dash face
- additional gauges installed (2 are in place of original ashtray)
- JVC CD stereo with amplifier and 10" Polk Subwoofer in passenger footwell (easily removable upon request)
- Interior in good shape (some minor tears in seat bottoms)
- Pilot driving lights
- Custom 3rd brakelight mounted under targa bar.

- California Salvage title. Was hit in the right front many years ago (before my ownership). Right front fender and hood were replaced
- Paintwork. Not a great paintjob, plenty of nicks and chips. Looks better in photos.
- Engine drips some oil. But hey, it's an aircooled motor. Don't they all do that?

Mechanically, this car is excellent and very reliable. I pretty much haven't had to touch the motor since I rebuilt it just over 4 years ago. If you know what you are looking for, you will notice that this car has most all of the desirable modifications for an aggressive street car / weekend autocrosser. I've probably forgot to include many things, so I'll add things as I think of them.

Price reflects salvage title and depressed economy. $6000 obo.
