11/23/2019 Car has been sold.

For sale 1974 model with a Raby turnkey 2270, Tangerine exhaust, full instrumentation, working A/C, rebuilt suspension and brakes, new seat upholstery with heated seats. All the right parts, done right, but needs some cosmetic work inside and out to make perfect. Located in Las Vegas but current registration in California.

As promised, a more thorough listing of the cars condition.

I purchased the car in 2008 as a bone-stock 1.8 liter with very little rust. The actual mileage was unknown. In the time I have owned it I put maybe 6,000 miles on the car while making the following modifications (although some modifications have less than a few hundred miles on them):
The good:
1. Raby 2270 Performer engine: Turnkey build from Jake; installed with Tangerine Racing 1-5/8” EVO exhaust, EVO II silencer, and heat exchanger kit; Derale Atomic Cool remote oil cooler with thermostat controlled fan, dual fuel filters, vacuum oil breather system, all SS hoses with AN fittings.
2. Raby rebuilt transmission, looked like all new parts
3. Front and rear suspension rebuild: Bilstein shocks, bushings, bearing, sway bars, ball joints, turbo tie-rod.
4. Rebuilt brakes, F&R: Set of four PMB rebuilt calipers, SS brake lines all around, rebuilt 19mm master cylinder, emergency brake works fine
5. Rebuilt axles from AutoAtlanta
6. Aftermarket air conditioning: Parts from Nostalgic Air, with front trunk condenser, engine mounted compressor and under dash evaporator. Spare tire mounts on top of condenser
7. Leather reupholstered seats with two-level electric heat inserts
8. AMCO aftermarket center console: CHT gauge (100-700); EGT gauge (700-1700); oil pressure gauge (0-80); oil temperature gauge (scaled to red); voltage gauge (8-16); and clock. Console has elbow height arm rest with small storage compartment, and controls for the A/C and heated seats.
9. New Hankook Performer 205/60x15 tires
10. Various OEM rubber seals replaced, including targa top/windshield seal.
11. Buyer can haul away all my spare 914 parts stash (about 6 boxes worth) which includes items such as new L&R side view mirrors, new F&R bumper tits, new OEM turn signal switch, OEM rubber for most of the rest of the car that I didn’t already replace, various powder coated body parts (L&R lower sill covers, rear valence, speedo/tach dashboard trim), various 914 books and repair manuals/binders.

The less-good:
1. Needs some visual body and paint repairs, although the only two known rust areas are some bubbles near the driver door handle and the beginnings of deterioration on the battery tray (does not intrude on the chassis or battery support)
2. Passenger compartment restoration about 60% complete. Needs back pad, door panel and dash front upholstery.
3. Under dash air conditioning unit interferes with passenger side foot well speaker. Speaker grill would have to be modified. Car comes with new L&R speaker grills for new owner to modify.
4. I installed struts the rear trunk lid which prohibit storage of the roof
5. Various mechanical and electrical idiosyncrasies such as electric rear trunk lock, driver side headlight randomly refuses to close then arbitrarily does, weak heating and ventilation
6. Raby rebuilt transmission, there’s a reason he is known for his engines! Kind of sticky shifting, may just need breaking in (has about 500 miles on it).

The LESS less-good:
1. The Raby engine came with a Mallory Unilite ignition system. After fighting for years with increasingly frequent blown ignition modules ($100 a pop), I replaced the entire setup with a stock 009 distributor and points setup. As a result the engine does not rev as quickly and power is probably down. Buyer gets all the original Mallory pieces, plus the extra coil, resistors and power filters I bought trying to clean up the power.
