Some shots of front early S calipers, rear Brillstein, front strut, oil cooler on the front of car. Remember this was a 69s engine in a Hot Rod-VW. Built in the 70s.

PMB did them several years ago. He had a thread on them. Vented rears from E's set up.

Some cool stuff or what I think is cool stuff: The owner’s book says it had its engine rebuilt at 64,828 miles.
The speedometer now says 110,000 or so. It has been so long scene I have looked at it.
#41 delivered on 1-4-70 to Dick Barbour Porsche. Engine number 640-4016 long gone.
The book was validated by Porsche Audi Pacific in Culver City CA not 1 mile from where I live now and 3 miles from where I grew up. I live 1,000 Ft from where Howard Hughes built the Spruce Goose. My house was built on land that Hughes Aircraft owned on the bluffs above the old Hughes Aircraft. Today that is called Silicone Beach and Playa Vista

Tool kit was in the car as well as factory jack. I had to buy copy red screwdrivers but what the hell. I have a Hot Rod VW. Waite till you see the NOS radio that I bought. 41 had a 80s loud radio with huge amp put in. I deiced to leave 41 in the spirit of the late 70s and not put her back to what a 914-6 was from the factory. I had to thing on it hard and a number of guys here back when it was up for sale, posted that it was a solid car but did not have the original Eng. and trans and it had the oil cooler and the trick body cowl door for fueling and it would never bring the big bucks.

Well I have really not wanted to sell her and build in this form is what I am doing. With some help from my friends.

Lets go to the front and the Fuel Door on the cowl. The PO was pissed because he had opened the front hood when the fuel door was open and it had bent it. No can do. His lesson that I have to remember. I bent it back somewhat and E’s body shop fixed it up. The early bodywork was done at Dick Troutmans’s in the 70’s Peter Dawe of Dawe’s Motorsport helped build this car an told the PO how he did this welding.

So I bought the car and when Lloyd delivered it to me at my Plastic Shop, he did not know how to open the front hood because the cable broke or something and I said, I knew of a great bunch of 914 guys that may answer it for us. I posted on this board and someone came back with an answer in less that one minute. Guys are still answering me and helping out. Posted pictures of before and after on the finishing of the body in that area.

Before we go to far with the assembly, I have more pictures of each part that was in the “as received from a long sleep”. After these are cleaned and restored and Eric put his new Copper lines instead of the braded stainless in the rockers and we will see more of “the art of the build”. Not deal

I got a Blaupunkt Frankfurt stereo for my 6 that was a factory rebuilt a very long time ago. Paid something like $350. In 2008 on eBay

Eric at PMB Performance will post more pictures as the rebuild continues. Ever part of this car is restored. I was very lucky that the body was in such great shape. It sat in the PO garage from 1986 on till 2007 then it has been shops. No rust on the battery tray. Very lucky on this car.

PMB put the stacks on my PMOs. The PO had non 914-6 air cleaner on it and I am going with the same set up. Will show more. Also the trans after PMB re freshened it. I got a NOS case from AA 9 years ago and it looked great in its Porsche box but after PMB inspected it had a cracked bearing seating area so we are trashing (recycling it)
I got it in the first place, as the old Transmission case looked pickled from what I guess was engine cleaner.

This was the info on the transmission. From the PO. “Transmission Rebuilt 2000 Miles ago by Performance Haus, , Hand polished close ratio 906 gears Late model "side shift" linkage” PMB found that it needed more than just new seals and gaskets. You really have to CK out everything on a restoration. Even N.O.S. parts or you can be S.O.L. That 2,000 miles was 30 years ago.

Sorry for posting on my car out of order but as Eric feeds me pictures I will put them up.
My Wife says that I really do not own a 6 it is just in my dreams. It is a distance from LA to Sandy Utah
