My husband bought his brother's 1972 Porsche 914 hoping to restore it someday. He passed away before he could dive in to this project. The folks over at the Porsche 914 Facebook group have helped me with what pictures and info I might gather for a listing, but you will soon find out I do not know anything about cars. What I do know:

* Clean Minnesota Title
* It's been stored in our shed for the past 20 years
* My dad said the tires are good but they will not stay inflated
* There are pictures here and I can take more if requested. I couldn't get a location or a good pic of the "longs" though.
* There is quite a bit of rust as shown
* My husband said the engine had been restored at one time when his brother owned it. I don't know any more about this, though.
* The title gives the VIN number plus says 2D, which I think means 2 door.
* I have the keys but no other documentation for it.
* It would need to be hauled.
* A group member advised me to clean the dust, etc. Since I don't know the correct products to use or if I would do more damage, I opted not to do this.
* Based on my VIN number search, it's a 4 cyl. It's believed to be a 1.7L engine.

I got a range of prices over on the Facebook group, so I am starting with those. I can't do anything with this car except remember how my husband was looking forward to it as a retirement project... so I am willing to take other offers. I'm located in the Brainerd Lakes area of Minnesota.

Sorry for my lack of knowledge about this car, but I'm glad to try to find out what I can if you have questions.

Cindy - $1,500 is a very fair price for the car. Good luck with the sale. Mark

Hi Cindy, I'm sorry for your loss. This is a very helpful group, I'll try to answer some of your questions.

First, you're correct that this is a 4 cylinder car. In it's present condition I think you're probably in the right ballpark for price at $1500.

For a 1972 car, I believe that would be a 1.7 engine.

I am in Minnesota too, but pretty far away. And really I don't have room for another car so I can't buy it. I'll pass it along to some friends though.
