IIRC there was just a discussion about that car in another threat here on 914world ... I think it was in the garage (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)

Haven’t seen the car in person. But I know the seller - AutoKennel - Paul Kramer. Good guy and trustworthy.

there is no way this car has 53,000 miles on it unless it was the most abused 914-6 in history. Although a very nice looking car (please do not get me wrong) this car has been extensively restored, and at one time completely taken apart. However the car is well worth the asking price, if it shows as well in person as it does in the hard to see, many pictures. Here are some of the things I noticed in no particular order (and I am not commenting about things like the master cylinder reservoir cover!)
no emergency brake handle rest black rubber cover
the windshield has been replaced
has a funky rear view mirror installed
no screw drivers in the tool kit
the upper dash vinyl has been replaced and is over padded
the threshold plates have black instead of white rivets installed
the fuel lines coming up through the engine shelf are cloth instead of clear plastic
the engine stickers are incorrectly installed and some not original
the headlight box serial number plate has been previously been damaged for some reason, maybe previous wreck?? Hard to tell
the rear trunk floor has been worked and the caulking at the rear panel is not correct, maybe previous damage
the Karmann plate is a reproduction one
the car has been extensively repainted
the blaupunkt radio has a late model bezel instead of the original chrome one
the floor boards have had the original sound deadening removed and funky new sound deadening improperly installed (the original looking one piece parts are readily available)
why did they not paint the floor pan bottom green when they did all of the body work?
the center seat cushion is from a later model car (the vinyl grain does not match)
the fog light bezel is from a 73-76 car
the front shock towers have been recoated with black but should have the top nut and washer black as well

Why was the rack and pinion replaced on a 53000 mile car?

I can certainly see rebuilding the carbs and adding the carrera tensioner kit but it seems like there was just too much engine and transmission resealing and other work on the power plant for, again, such a low mile car.

Thank you George, It's great having someone who knows these cars inside and out weigh in. I may go see it in person and get further clarity on the issues you raised.
