I am the proud owner of 1974 1.8 liter 914. The PO blew it up and parked it in a blackberry patch. There it sat for the past 6 years. He did pull the motor and tranny and stored them in a shed. So theres that. The car is a huge project. I am an experienced welder and metal fabricator and mechanic so that aspect doesn't scare me. The car needs major body work. Everything is still there as a far as parts. the glass is good.
I work part time at a machine shop and I took the motor down to the shop today. It looks like the cylinders need to be replaced and I am not sure just yet what "blew up" in the motor. I plan on splitting the cases in the next few days. I'll post what progress I make on it. Excited to get it back on the road!
