I'm new here ...

Update July 10, 2019: Not sure if I should kill the below info or if it has value for others...
Sold the car, but kept the alloys.
Will list them here tomorrow in the parts section and put a link here after I swap them and take pics...

Meanwhile the Prelude (dropping ask to $1200) at the bottom really needs some love...


Update: I really need to sell this car right away, as I am moving.
Please make any offers and I will build a list and start contacting offers in order of best to worst tonight/tomorrow.
Either message me here or send email through craigslist ad.

I have a 73 914 with 71,497 miles and a rough body that I had been intending to restore.
I am reasonably sure it is a 1.7 with a side shift.

Car is in Sunnyvale, CA and I am hoping there is someone local who would want it.

craigslist ad with more info here:


I was originally hoping for something like $2400 as someone could part it or restore it at that price and double their money, but I would take $1800 or a reasonable offer to sell it immediately.
Open to advice on valuation.
I am assuming an in person transaction - cash only and buyer arranges to flatbed it out of here.
It was registered till January 2019, but it is on non-op now.
Thanks for info mepstein!

I would appreciate any advice, leads, and obviously offers to buy!

I should probably mention that I have another engine with heat exchangers and a partial trans-axle, but I still have to dig them out and take pics...

Also, off topic but I have an 82 Honda Prelude Type 1 if there is any crossover interest...
Same as update above - I need it out of my driveway now!
Hoping for $1400, but again a reasonable offer to get it out of here..
Its ad is here:

I had a look at this car on Sunday. The seller, Tim, is highly motivated as he is moving.

There was too much rust in the hell hole, drivers long and sail panel/door latch area for me to be interested in taking it on as a project. It also looked like the rear trunk floor has been replaced. Otherwise, it is generally complete, with a side shift transmission. There are Mahle wheels on it, which can be negotiated in lieu of the “roller” steel wheels. The engine is indeed a 1.7L. Body damage down the left side as seen in the photos, but no visible front end damage. The spotting on the hood is not rust, it’s moss.

It’s a big project, or a parts car. But as I mentioned, the seller is very motivated.
