Most of you saw the ABM car for sale a few weeks back. 800 miles later its new home is here in Pleasanton. Exceptional '74 chassis with steel flares. Project car - needs finishing... going to take it slow and assemble things right.

Starting with the interior, then connecting controls, electrical, oil lines, etc. May put LSD transmission in. Will post pictures as I go.

That's one of the nicest "project" cars I've seen. Should be fun putting it together.
Nice score Rob, didn't think that car would last

That is a beautiful looking car…and a real steal if I remember rightly. Is that Alaska Blue?

Dumb question: What's the "ABM" mean in this case?


EDIT: Whoops, I got it. Alaska Blue Metallic. You'd think I would remember--my first 914 was that color!!

Wow, what a great "project" car! I'm used to things pulled from the bottom of the heap. Where was it advertised?
