So, after having had the pleasure to drive this beautiful, unmolested, all original, 37k miles 914-6 today, i can't help but wonder if we should attempt to list all the differences between an early /6 and early /4 in terms of originality.

I believe it would be of tremendous help to have a list of things "to look for" when doing a PPI on such a time-capsule.

What do ya'all think?

i'll start ... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

- it should have a flat /6, 2.0L motor (doh!)
- firewall center engine mount
- no /4 mounts
- factory oil-tank
- different relay board
- "hook" for the oil-line on drivers side rear long
- 911 style ignition switch and column for '70/'71 models
- *no* hole in the front trunk for the /4 air hose to the spare tire
- black "tar" around the front upper shock towers
- different windshield washer bottle
- electric washer pump
- real 5-lug axles
- "914-6" badge
- handthrottle in front of the shifter
- different throttle cable routing, using a tranny mounted pivot
- different paint code on the karman badge
- different VIN, starting with "914" (doh! again)
- no rain-tray under engine lid.
- Dash top has no center vent


- "dogbone" pass. side footrest (did early /4s have those too?) - Yes
- different center console (did early /4s have those too?) - Yes


what else?

My '70/4, build date 01/1970, was delivered w/o the tethered footrest and did not have a headliner.

Another difference between the /4s and /6s.......the brakes!

My "plain Jayne" '70 914-4 did not have a center console.

Neither the '4 or '6 had a headliner.

My six had no headliner also, but I bought it in 1997 so who knows. Now Dr.914 told me at parade it was the way it came from factory! HELP!!! Who's right.

You are right. No headliner in the early sixes from the factory. Do not when it changed but all 71 and 72 sixes had a headliner installed

It appears that most early 914s, /4 or /6, had a radio/antenna installed by the dealer. I can't remember seing an original early car that didn't have a Hirschman antenna, if one was installed. I'd imagine that the P+A dealer would be more likely to put a Blaupunkt or Becker radio in a /6, as opposed to the dealer installed Motorola that came in my /4.

You can't see them, but the 914-6 rear axles and CV joints have one more spline than the 914-4s do. (Not much use knowing this for a PPI though)

Rear brake caliper & handbrake is way different than the 914-4.

Hi guys,

I have a serious question. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)

Can a late 1970 914-6 with a 0 after the 914 on the vin # and titled as a 1971 be converted to a factory 1971 M-471 option car????
Example: vin # 91404321?? (late#'s) and titled as 1971 be a real 1971???

Inquiring minds want to know, because I know of a 914-6 that's for sale??? Need answer ASAP.

Wolfgang are you interested?? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)
