A very good friend on mine scored what I think could be deal of the century. He is a VW collector and has restored/modified many air cooled VW's over the years. He is not that familiar with Porsches and has asked me to give him advise as to what he has purchased and what he should do with it.

I got a call this past Sunday that he purchased a Porsche 914- 6 from an estate for $1000.00 !!! Of course, the first question I asked was what the serial number was to determine if it was a real "6". Turns out that it was a '74 converted to a "6". From the pictures it looks like it has an early naturally aspired 911 motor. My question is where is the serial number on the motor? We are curious as to how old the motor is and determine what the displacement could be. The motor does turn and there is no outward signs of rust including the Hell Hole.

Tomorrow I will accompany him to inspect further and take some more pictures. I would like to find the engine number at that time.

Dave
