My car was resprayed. I've never in my 15 years of owning a 914 ever seen....even in California an Ivory white that was the original paint. Mine had only been resprayed once.
I have seen several that have been repainted L80 and done well with black accents including the sail trim is beautiful IMHO. When the& (Porsche) did the BIW I could see why they would think it would look good.

My car was a 1.7 and original with exception to the paint and rims. 14K was the ask.

It was on here this board for a month you were one that replied to the post. I posted it to AT and it sold within a week.

Good luck...just think its a unicorn to find anymore a good orginal car. They are getting hard to find even in Cali.

Just a suggestion....I understand your desire for that perfect car. With that said, as several on here have mentioned, finding the 73/74 2.0, in ivory, in original and superb condition....just might be an impossibility at this point. If you were looking for ANY original survivor in ANY or a LIMITED number of colors....you will likely find. But at this point holding out for only Ivory in that specification....just might be a bridge to far.

Meanwhile you are depriving yourself of the amazing experience of 914 ownership. Would you consider finding that same rare car in another color BUT then continuing to look for the elusive Ivory car? If bought "right" I highly doubt you would lose money on that car if the elusive unicorn car does appear. In fact, perhaps you will actually have made money WHILE you enjoy the car and look for that perfect Ivory car for you. Win/Win. Life is short.

Just a thought.

I am open to other colours but ivory is my first choice , I missed a good car of brad mayer only a few months ago , I have turned down a few good cars but they were all 1700cc not 2,000 cc I recently found a exceptional car in sepia brown original paint but many people told me if its not really what you really want, hang out for the car of your choice or you will never be satisfied , yes I am missing out on 914 ownership but I have other cars I can drive , and I don't want to regret buying the wrong car not really in a financial position to buy a car and sell on if a good ivory car did turn up as in the real world things don't often sell as quick as we would like and then I would miss out on a good white car I now wished I had bought the silver car what was advertised on here recently

Understand your comments. Speaking from personal experience, I would suggest you put condition as your #1 criteria with a '73/'74 2.0 as a very close #2 criteria. Find the absolute best survivor that you can find for the money you have available to spend. Make color secondary. I think you will find that condition and it being a 2.0 car will affect financial appreciation and your personal enjoyment far more than color EVER will.

I would never have selected red as my color of choice for my 914. BUT when my Bahia Red came along and was in such unbelievably original condition, I made the decision to snap it up. I have never looked back and it will take a lot to pry it out of my hands. I've never had someone tell me that they love my survivor but it's too bad it's not a better color. They are too focused trying to understand how it can actually be so original and congratulating me on my good fortune to have found such a pristine example. Not to mention that I've doubled my investment in 4.5 years of ownership.

Yes once in a rare moment I think about whether I could find an equally pristine survivor in that perfect color but you'll never see my selling the one I have in hopes of actually finding one.

Oh....and I think you'd be surprised just how quickly someone will buy that non-ivory car from you if you ever did try to sell it. Original cars will always be a hot item.

Maybe just try posting that you're looking for a pristine survivor. See what happens?

Good luck....

Here's one on The Samba. Original Ivory White with one repaint. Clearly it does NOT check all your boxes, but might be worth a call. Looks like a very nice car IMHO.

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/det....php?id=2291527

Hope the link works.
