Didn't they put a 1.8 or 2.0 emblem on the rear of the car in '74? Is the emblem still there?

BTW, what's up with that carb linkage? I think I see 2 bars leading to the left and right and an eye hook on the right side. The one to the right might be the return spring.

The previous owner did some weird stuff the linkage is a little strange I would like to convert it back to F.I. it didn't come with the rear emblems. Apparently the engine was just freshly rebuilt but the car hasn't ran in 10 years. It has later model 75-76 heat exchangers, not sure which transmission yet. Just a mix/match of different year parts and pieces the guy has 3 914's and made one good one out of the 3.
I'm thinking I will try and get it running and take it from there, not sure if I'll leave the bus engine in it or try and find a 2.0. I've defiantly got some work ahead of me but that's okay that's why I bought it. I also got a bunch of extra parts with the deal which I will sell off for cash flow.
