Highly original 1975 2.0L, D-jet FI, VIN# 4752902931. Fully loaded, extensive documentation including original window sticker. Ready to enjoy right now with the benefit of unlimited future potential. $18,500.

This car was out of service since 2007, covered with a car cover and tarp. A pair of 914 enthusiasts rescued the car from the second owner and worked on the mechanicals and cosmetics to give the new owner a car that can be enjoyed now and gradually restored as a survivor or taken off the road for a full-on restoration.

During that process many parts were replaced with correct used components known to be fully functional: distributor, MPS, pedal cluster, accelerator pedal. In addition, PMB rebuilt calipers, an accelerator cable and a 914Rubber master cylinder were added.

The body is extremely straight and solid with excellent body gaps on all panels, including the difficult headlight doors. The front inner fenders are pristine and the jack posts and longitudinals are likewise flawless. The battery tray is fully intact with light surface rust, no perforations and remnants of original paint. The hellhole is solid. The doors, both trunks and engine lid open and close smoothly with that satisfying click.

The bumpers and covers are in excellent shape as is the vinyl and shiny trim on the targa bar and sail panels. Front and rear valances are in very good condition.

The interior is beautiful and a real strong point of the car. The seats, dash, backpad and carpets have no rips, tears or cracks and show very little wear. The door panels are in excellent condition, except that they've been cut for aftermarket speakers. (note: 914Rubber has correct reproductions for the '75 door panels.) the windows roll up and down smoothly. Even the interior light in the backpad works, although it does have a crack. Note: the floor mats pictured are not included in the sale.

The paint is about 90% original. Part of the right rear fender was repainted and is flaky and chalky at the rear edge. There is a small bit of bubbling in a couple of spots: top of left rear fender and top of right front fender near the cowl. The front hood has some rock chips and light crazing. Overall, the paint is in remarkable condition for it's 45 years, with smooth, shiny surfaces and very few other chips. It's a very nice 10-footer.

A note about the color: the paint code on the door tag is L31M (Scarlet Red). The window sticker lists a $405 charge for "Color to Sample"; and the original owners manual lists the color as 1.RED (SPECIAL 911 COLOR). It appears to be very close to Guards Red in person.

The new owner will have some areas to address: back window needs to be re-glued, seat belts need to be cleaned for easy retraction, needs new driver's visor, targa top is not original to the car and needs new seals, engine bay and bottom side needs cleaning and detailing, right headlight pops up but doesn't go down on it's own. The Anza exhaust is aftermarket and is easily replaced if desired. Note: a nearly new (~200 mi.) Bursch exhaust has been obtained and is included in the sale.

It's a great driver: starts easily, idles steadily at 1k rpm, revs freely to redline, shifts like butter, stops perfectly and handles the way a 914 should handle. No leaks.

The option list, as shown on the window sticker, includes: front and rear sway bars, Bilstien shocks, driving lights, heated rear window, Fuchs alloy wheels, Appearance Group, intermittent windshield wiper, tinted glass.

In addition to the window sticker, the sale includes the original owner's manual, key pouch with red keys, key tag with original dealer code, tool pouch w/tools (screwdriver missing), extensive receipts back to the original owner, etc.

Cars like this don't come along very often. I'l be happy to answer any questions an interested buyer may have.
