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.

I got out to look at it Sunday so here's a quick review.

Seller has represented the car reasonably well and honestly so I'm just going to add to it.

ENGINE: It's carb'd and you won't forget that. It started on the 3rd try. A little cranky when cold but idled just fine even with the comp on. It's built more towards a track motor, where all the power is on the top end, like a -6 or suby-6. So it launches kinda dull then whoosh and you're over redline. Noticeable hesitation just off idle like the acc squirt is lacking. Power is down probably 15% because of the 009 and points, but that's common knowledge. Mallory's (IMG:style_emoticons/default/stromberg.gif) so much Raby doesn't use them anymore. It's a $15k motor so I'd invest $500 for a 123ignition dizzy.
Still quite driveable in the city though the muffler is on the loud side. Does a respectable 2nd gear drift. Temps were fine on a 76* afternoon.

Body: Paint looks good except for the few places it's chipped off. A quick buff would really bring out the color. I did discover bondo though. Right front fender midway up and into the door 1/3. About 1/16" thick. Looks like a quick fix as I could of hammered it straight again and that's not my skill set. I'd likely spot paint the bad spots over a whole new paint job.

Another discovery is a big dent at the rear trunk lock. I'm guessing it got stuck and they tried to punch it out??? It's well hidden by the reflector.

A/C: Blows cold on a 76* afternoon - so basically it works, but how well when it's 110* I can't say. There is no Condenser fan -- just forced air while moving, but it looks like a low profile Radiator fan would fit.

RUST: Alot of the problem areas have been re-undercoated with some quality stuff. The door handle and battery tray you've seen. The rear trunk has rust that's been painted over and is kinda iffy.

OTHER: Shifting is a little sloppy even for a 914 -- I'd guess worn bushings or a loose screw. Pads squeak a bit on initial press but lock the fronts no problem. Tires are fresh -- mid 2017. Nothing but quality work throughout, except maybe the door speakers. Stereo is plenty loud.

SUMMARY: A solid driver that if it didn't need a dozen minor fixes would be a $20k 914 easily.

If you are serious and I missed something let me know by Sat 9th afternoon as I'll be in the neighborhood again for dinner.
