I am selling my 1971 914 to fund a more practical car to shuttle kids to scouts, kung fu, school and sports. I purchased the car in 2011, and have really enjoyed it. The car has always been garaged and only driven on sunny days. I own a car detailing business and have really enjoyed polishing the chrome trim as well as waxing this orange paint. It currently has two layers of Chemical Guys Lava as a finish. It has not been washed with a hose since I have owned it. The previous owner re built this car from the ground-up. I shipped the car to Tangerine Racing in 2016 for a variety of repairs, up-grades and re-powering. The car looks and runs great. It starts easily and idles perfectly. This car is not a show winner but it is a real looker that runs great. It is a blast to drive, and it gets a ton of attention. This is a solid car that will require zero work to enjoy all summer, fall, and the following spring, etc.
Details

1971 2.0 engine with FI
stock engine installed spring 2016 by Tangerine Racing
The following additional work was done by Tangerine last year:
SS fuel lines- full Tangerine kit
Fuel pump replaced and relocated
Tangerine exhaust, EVO II
new key- The key is a much needed new master key!
rust repairs to jam, and long as recommended by Chris (In fact, I did everything he recommended)
trunk release pull behind plate
new clutch and throttle cables
new clutch tube in tunnel
tuning
starter replaced
brake check and new brake fluid
parking brake cable install
headlight bulbs
I did pretty much everything Chris recommended. The rust repairs were minor and completed with this visit to Tangerine.

The work by the previous owner was extensive. The car has had everything replaced or repaired as needed. Here are some of the details from his ad. I deleted the engine details as Tangerine replaced the engine last year:

"Up for sale is my 71 914 2.0 ground up restoration well over $16,000 in receipts, the pan, inner rockers, suspension console and battery area have all been replaced,every part on the car is new.
Every rubber seal on the body and doors has been replaced.
Delrin race suspension bushings (all of them)
reinforced rear trailing arms
Stable Energies 6pt Roll cage
All Auto Meter Carbon Fiber series gauges
Heated 02 sensor with Air/Fuel ratio gauge (great for tuning)
Corbeau Seats with 4 point harnesses and Stable Energies harness bar
Momo Steering wheel
All engine tin has been powder coated orange intakes were coated with the Stealth coating as well
New fuel pump
New pads and rotors
911 master cylinder
SS brake lines
less then 8,000 miles on clutch
Big Bore throttle body done by Highperformancehouse.com
Minilite wheels
Hal Effect sending unit for speed O (no more cable)
Carbon Fiber look dash
new carpet
Front sway bar with drop links (I have rear sway bar just not installed)
SS outer rocker pannels (painted)"
I have lots of pictures of the build undertaken by the previous owner.
The FI harness is a "like new" refurbished unit from Jeff Bowlsby


You can see two videos of the car on the CFR Tangerine Racing Facebook page. I am now asking $14,500 for the car.
Give me a ring or text. 410-382-1930 I spent over $7,000 on various repairs all at Tangerine Racing in March 2016. I can forward these invoices to any person interested in the car.

Things that don't work or are not there.
No stereo
No wipers but they are included and the posts turn when activated
I recently replaced the turn signal relay but pulled it because it buzzed. I have a different relay.
No Heat
No rear view mirror. It is in the glove box.

Since the car returned from Tangerine, I replaced the shift linkage bushings as well as a new ground strap from the battery. The shift linkage bushing failed completely after some spirited driving once the car had the work completed last year. While not complicated, the job is not exactly simple. With the the new bushings installed combined with the new clutch tube, and clutch cable, the car shifts very well!

The tires are new as well. They were replaced in the spring of 2016.

I don't get why you're not supposed to comment. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Thanks! I think that rule is to discourage people from being rude or making comments that could hurt the prospects for a successful sale.

This pic of the underside shows the custom pipe fabricated by Tangerine Racing for their new silencer and the Kerry Hunter headers.

I forgot to add that I have a lot of spare engine parts as well as other miscellaneous stuff. This will go with the car if desired at the asking price. 2.0 heads slightly damaged but definately repairable as well as a very nice stock lower valence. I know that not everyone is a fan of the snow plow lower valence on the car, and this piece is an easy fix. It is also nice to have this in case you hit a lip, curb, whatever and damage the fiberglass valence. Other engine parts are an unopened case, crank, webcam, connecting rods, fan, clutch, flywheel and more. It all fits nicely in the front trunk!

side with windshield decal. The thing hanging from the front bumper is orange hockey tape that I apply along the bottom edge of that low front valence. The tape keeps that edge looking nice(except when it hangs!) as it does get scraped up occasionally.

Thanks. It is a blast to drive, and I like to look at it almost as much as I like to drive it!
