You're welcome to take it for a spin any time! We're down in Henderson, kind of near the "M", but currently out of town for a couple weeks.

There is no reason I know of that it couldn't. I only drive it around town now.

This looks like a really good deal to me. If I wasn't scaling back...and just lost several years of my retirement...

You've done a nice job developing this car, GLWTS

bump again to top.
Yes I agree just the motor alone is worth that price already.
Someone should have a good buy on this!

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/red914.jpg) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rocking nana.gif)

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.

Thanks for the review, Chris, and adding things I wouldn't have known how to look for. Just to confirm, the "down 15%" power thing is on the Raby dyno'd 170 horsepower, not the stock 914 horsepower of 70-100 hp.

It has current registration and license for California so no smog required to change title there.

A smog check is not required on a title or pink slip transfer or vehicle registration renewal if the vehicle's biennial smog certification was submitted to the DMV within 90 days prior to the transfer date.

Would your car pass a smog in CA if needed?

This is kind of a big deal in CA.
