Then it's $40k+ invested in a 914 conversion. That would be a no. BIG NO. I like being married to a reasonably happy wife.

Hi, I'm new to 914's, and I'm trying to understand the high value in this car?
I'm in the market for a clean, no accident driver, preferably no rust. Based on my conversations and research, rust is a 914 killer, in addition to other wear and and tear issues. This 914 appears to need some rust repair (?) in addition to some other minor repairs.

I understand this 914 is original, but doesn't this also apply to the engine , transmission, and all of the other wear parts?

Thanks for our help, an I look forward to learning more.

The selling price of this car is pretty much the low end of cars in this condition.

If you are scared of a little rust, then the 914 is not for you. This example is about as "rust free" as an unmolested and original 914 could ever hope to be. If someone ever tells you that their 914 is completely original and the battery tray is flawless, they are probably not telling the whole truth, lol.

I agree with this completely. I'm not presenting this as a rust free 914 because there is virtually no such thing. In fact, I included a pic of the battery tray with traces of original paint to illustrate the point. Most of these cars don't survive 40+ years with their original trays.

Another area of major $$ savings is the interior, which in this case is in excellent condition. Seats, dash, back pad, carpets, guages are all original and show minimal wear.

In today's collector market, provenance and patina are important and this is another strong point of the car.

I really appreciate the insights, critiques and questions. I am also open to reasonable offers on the price.

I'd be tempted if it didn't cost so much to get it here. IBH, I'd be buying it to tastefully correct any of the cosmetic deficiencies and re-sell. Cars like this are rare indeed

What number would make it feasible to allow for transport? Let's talk.

Beautiful car, GLWTS! this is well worth the price and more! way more!- last week I got with Haggerty to reset my valuation for agreed value etc and they were putting a car like this in the 40,000$ range + for replacement value based on that condition - I was told for mine it should not be insured for less than $30,000 and we came to an agreed value of $35,000 - I would say having done a partial restoration on my car I can tell you what I spent so far and its close to the listing price of this car! if I were looking at a nice original car vs restoring a car, I would go with this for sure- I know there is someone looking hard at this vs an other car and I would say here now t his is the car he should buy for sure - btw my sticker on my '75 with a build date of 09/74 was $7989. so your car at $8500 like kevin said was an expensive 914 for the day, and mine also had appearance group 2.0 with special order color etc.

Anyway this should not be available long if there are serious buyers out there!

Thanks for you comments and information. I completely agree that this car represents a special opportunity and I've tried to price it to reflect it's value and be fair to the next person who can decide the course of continued upgrades.
