I really should do another leak down test. As I mentioned that one was done cold and after sitting all summer.

Any way to make this a 75? haha. Looks like a great deal, just that Calif does not like 76 and newer cars, ugh. GLWS

How much can I sell this car if it was a 75 or older? Maybe I should do another engine swap into an older car. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I live in California and would not buy a ‘76 because the state requires smog. If you’re not getting interest from people in Ca, this may be the reason.

I think updated leakdown and compression numbers will be a better use of your time than dealing with swapping all of this into another car.

Here's a comment from a local guy who rode in my car at an autocross a year or two ago. He's part of the autocross committee for Lone Star PCA and is one of the top drivers.

"It was a very well put together car. Feels the way a 914-6 should feel. All the sensation of a factory car with the drivability and benefit of some modern upgrades. I’ve driven a few and the ones like yours with a few minor tweaks drive great."

If it were a 74 or 75 I.d buy it.

Somebody in the Lone Star state has a helluva deal.

If it had been a 75 it would have been sold a very long time ago.

48 as Oregon requires smog (in the most populated/popular areas) for '75 and newer. You can get the SP plate (which limits how much you can drive) for vehicles over 25years old.

Beautiful car!

I might throw it up on BAT - they had already accepted it before. See what happens....probably need to put the engine lid on and put a real oil catch can first. So if this thread disappears....
