Hi all,
I’ve been a 914 enthusiast since they were first introduced in 1970 and have over the years owned 7, with three of them being original 914-6’s.
I have decided that I am going to sell the 914-6 that I currently own and have owned for 31 years and 8 months.
Parting with the car is probably tougher on me than cutting off my right arm.

I could use a little help in determining its value and potential market.
Many of you on the west coast have seen the car at events over the years and hopefully will have an opinion.

To start: it’s an original “6” vin #9140431952

Here are the details:
1995 993 3.6 carrera engine. Stock factory build. With chip. 25-30 MPG
Billy Boat stainless headers with heat
Dansk polished stainless steel muffler w/dual exhaust
Hidden front BAT oil coolers (3) with thermostat control and fan. Runs cool even on the hottest desert day.
All oil and fuel lines plumbed with aeroquip lines and fittings.
Carrera starter
Carrera 915 transmission with Vellios side shift conversion. Built by George Vellios himself.
8:31 ring and pinion with 29:21 5th gear for freeway flying.
Wevo semi sold trans mounts and wevo shift couplings
Short shift kit on 915 shifter
Carrera complete front suspension with rack and anti sway bar and big brakes w/slotted rotors.
Limited edition 914 rear anti sway bar
180 lb rear springs with Koni shocks
Recently overhauled 914-6 rear brakes and fresh rotors. Stainless lines
19mm master cylinder
7 and 8 inch x15 factory Fuchs crome plated by Robert Woods
215/55s on the front, 225/50s on the rear.
Koenig 914 seats (extremely rare)
Deist seat belt harnes both sides
New European carpet, headliner, trunk, mats, door panels, dash top etc.
Carrera gages, electronic speedometer
Rennline dead post
Momo steering wheel
Blaupunkt CD with aux input and 100 watt amp and custom speakers (sounds great!)
European lenses front and rear with split dual bulb European turn signal lighting in front
High intensity head lights with electrical relay twin bulb total 155 watts per side
New tinted windshield and trim recently installed
Door glass and window mechanism updated to later model tinted windows and fuzzy window track for quiet wind noise free ride
Tinted thicker rear window and quiet insulation behind interior seat panels
New rubber seals all around
Twin outside mirrors

I probably forgot a few things, but if you can think of it, it’s probably got it.
Recent service, runs great (understatement)
Drives fantastic.



In summary. Probably one of the nicest 914-6’s around.
Great body, no rust.
Recipes for everything!
I can supply a bunch of photos.

Whats it worth?

UPDATE: February 22, 2019. The car is available for sale.
Asking price $75,000 OBO
JIM 760.333.4221

The car is SOLD.
Thanks everyone!

PRS914-6 would be the closest, but it wasn’t a real six. Same motor and trans. I think it sold for around $60k

This car was at a couple WCRs, I think I talked to you at the Medford event a couple years ago?

There are few cars to compare it to. It's really nice.

Real six, huge motor, tons of mods, purists be damned.

This car is its own category.

To the collectors, it's not stock enough. To the drivers, its too nice and real six enough. White isn't everyone's color. If it had steel flares though......

To me, I want it. This is exactly what I'd drive happily.

I'd say $60-80K which is a wide range.

$60K to a flipper or foreign person this month. $80K if you sit on your well deserved number and that right person will come along.

Its really worth $100K if this is your exact build dream car, because it would take that and more to create it, and BTW, no one will build a 914/6 with a real /6 ever again.

Good luck with the sale and I hope you've had a great ride all of these years! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif)

That is a beautifully built Six. I am going to say $80K and I wish I had the money to buy it. GLWTS. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Wow Jim, I never thought...

Such a great car, and such a thoughtful build. Whatever it sells for the buyer will be happy. This is one of the cars that cannot be replicated without spending metric tons of $$.

Yep.... I started this project almost 32 years ago when the collectors couldn’t care less about 914-6’s. Back then people looked down their noses and called the 914 a VW. Who knew that someday the car might be collectible?
Stock wasn’t much fun with a little 2.0 six.
I’ve had some people tell me it’s too nice. I’d be glad to give it a few dents or poke a hole in the muffler for the right price.
When I painted it white, my friends called the car a “refrigerator “. The name stuck, and for many years I told people that I was going to drive the refrigerator to the event.
Personally I never cared for the big steel flairs. Seemed out of proportion. Just my opinion.

Thanks everyone! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
