"investment" buyers don't want a salvage title. Honestly, a 40+ year olfd car that hasn't had a tweak? Given that these cars were so cheap for so long, not suprised that an accident would have totaled it.. ie, its a $5K car when in an accident. Costs $3k to fix. Insurance decides to total/salvage it out. Not shocked.

Problem is many still want "investment" benefits, even if the car in question more than suits their needs.

As someone mentioned... this one would just be a case of buy low sell low, vs buy low, sell high. So what. Salvage means open season to flare out, cage, take racing, enjoy as is w/o fear of needing to insure for $100K.

I got my 987 this way. 12k for a 3.4 with 300HP. Air conditioning, air bags...everything checked out.

Can't do a -6 conversion for that, it was a no brainer.

However......................I miss the roar of the air cooled sound....

Here is a great chance to own and drive one of the greatest canyon carvers of all time. Professionally built by Marco at TLG auto, this 1973 914 with a large 6 cylinder SC motor screams thru the hills. Car has been indoors its whole life, and currently has a California salvage title from a front hit in the late 70's. SC motor has Weber 40's, and the 914 side shift gear box has about 250 miles since a full on rebuild. Real fuchs 16 inch - 5 bolt wheels at all 4 corners. Front suspension is from an 85 911 3.2 ltr and just received new pads, rotors, and rebuild calipers. Bilstein shocks at all 4 corners. Racing headers to a sport muffler with twin pipes out the back. Idles quietly but once on the pipe - with the howl of the intake and twin pipes out the back - it gets loud ! Brand new carpet kit and new seats. Originally a red car with a/c, painted white and still looks great. A few dime size rust bubbles around typical areas as the front windshield post, rear sail panels, and rear trunk. Rest of frame and floors are great with no issues. Professional detail already done by Jeff at Classy Cars in Newport Beach. A fantastic project car done by some of the top shops in southern California ready to go !!

A little slice of perfection. Sum of parts less than the asking. I’d rather drive than show. I should list the ABM and buy this one!

What are the reasons NOT to buy this car?

I am seriously thinking about buying this car. Honestly, my biggest fear is that this is some rust bucket. I have owned two 914s before and both ended up being stealth rust buckets. Did anyone look at the Hell hole?


As far as the noise, what could be done to bring that under control?

I am fortunate to a have good friends who are air-cooled Porsche guys so I won't be totally alone, but I really don't want a project that requires that I rebuild the car from scrap. I don't care about the salvage title.

I think it’s pretty darn solid having seen it, Bob and others spent more time with it than I did.

I visited the owners website, mentioned this car was sold.

Would have been a good deal even if you where just hunting for parts.

I’d agree that Ben’s heat exchangers with a good muffler will help civilize the car (heat and defrost are good things), and EFI would tame any induction noise.

If I know it is for sale, I may buy it.
Drive it for awhile then swap the parts and place into my 74 when it is ready.

100% agree.. @jwinner has stock heat exchangers and one of my mufflers on his hot 2.7 with carbs.. I cant tell you how nice it drove.. Not intrusive at all.

This car just needs 3-5k to make really easy to drive..

Isn't it odd that it doesn't have air filters? Why would you run them without something? Seems like a recipe for a worn out motor.
