Hi Armando, Long time no talk, you and I got together to purchase 914GT headlight opener kits from Germany around 2005ish. One of my gas charged struts is beginning to fail and I am looking to replace it. Do you have a source for the strut OR a source for the specifications? Thanks in advance. Marv

I'm restoring a 914 6 that had some rust issues under the battery. I want to get it fixed as close to original as possible and was hoping someone to tell me with Authority if the 6 had the same 2 oblong holes for the fuel lines through the engine tray?

Did the six have a plug for one of the holes?

Hi Achim! Awful nice of you to post, it is my pleasure and a great compliment coming from you in Germany.

Hello Mr. Serrano
Maybe you still know who I am? Years ago you had pictures of my restorations and conversions including the GT parts that I sell on your website.
If you are interested in the new GT parts that I sell as well as the price list. Can I send you pictures and the price list by email. Best regards. Dante Rubli

Hi 914/6 GT

I'm french and I'm looking for a 914/6 Gt

I found one that come from america and had raced in SCCA. The car lived in california and florida and had been imported to france 4 or 5 years ago.
I want to know if the car could be an original dealer mounted 914/6 GT, the VIN is 914.043.1871.
Do you have any information on this car

It would be very helpful to know a part of the history of this car

thank you very much

Hi, I'm doing a 915 to 916 conversion using Martin Bott's kit
I had some questions regarding the speedo sender pickup
I see you are using a different pickup from factory
Did you have any problem with warpage due to welding the side cover?
Did you have to use the stronger magnets that Martin supplies?
Thx
George

Hello Charlie, back in 2002 I had a rare opportunity to buy a complete 908 race engine for under 135K, I too had the great idea of doing a 914-8 recreation of sorts. At the time the acquisition cost of the nearly new 908 motor was daunting, little did I know how good a deal that was. I calculated the conversion to be too expensive since it was not just the 908 motor cost, but the correct fabrication expenses related to the installation, the gearbox and linkage, the new exhaust, the VDO 10K chronometric mechanical tach just to name a few.

I'm not sure where you're going to find an original 908 crankcase, not to mention the rest of the very expensive 908 components, such as; Magnesium Cam Housing/Covers, crankshaft, camshafts, heads, BOSCH MFI pump, injectors, Mag Fan assambly, etc., etc. Don't be surprise to learn you will be committed at least for 250K, IMHO, more for a correct 908 engine.

Give the guys at Jerry Woods Enterprises (Morspeed) in Northern California a call http://www.jwemotorsports.com as they may be able to help with a few 908 engine reproduction parts. Not sure what's left for 908 original parts. email: info@JerryWoods.com

Good luck!

I just bought a 1971 914-6 #0372; I am the 3rd owner. The first owner had the car until 1974, the second owner until I bought it a couple of weeks ago. The car is an original CA car and it decent shape. Unfortunately it has a 3.0 SC motor with webers and was color changed to black. The car has 89K original miles and everything works except the defroster/blower motor.

Hi Armando,

how are you? We had some contact in the past about porsche parts....hope you remember?

I will build up a 2.0 liter racing Engine with a friend of mine.

He got some titanium rods left from his active race time.

The rods are for the 916,917 and 908 engines. But we are missing the so called bund bearings for the rods.

Do you have an idea where we can find some?

I tried your email where we had contact in the past. Does not work. So I try it here.

Mike Holloway 21-Feb-2008 00:06
Hi Armando-
I own chassis no.914 043 1689. The car was used to knock down an oak tree by a colleague of mine, who was road testing it, just prior to handing it back to his customer. He ended up buying the hapless customer a replacement 14/6 ( this was back in the days when they weren't worth much), and he ended up owning the crashed car. He eventually repaired it , using some front end panels from of a standard 914. In the process he removed the chassis plate, ended up losing it. There is no question over the provenance of the car; it was quite well known over here in the UK, on the club racing scene in general, back in the eighties.
When I approached Porsche Cars head office, hoping to get a new chassis plate, I was told 'no problem, but you will need to tell us the build number, which is stamped in the right hand rear corner of the rear luggage compartment.'
My understanding is that 14/6 cars did not have this number, as the bodies were built by VW, and the cars delivered to Porsche did not,naturally, have a VW build number stamped into them.Porsche did not stamp their own build numbers into them, as they did not actually build the bodyshells. My car is absolutely standard and original, apart from the front end repair work, and it does not have any number of any kind stamped into the luggage compartment floor. The '14/6 expert' at Porsche Cars GB says that it should have a build number. Mind you, he also thinks that the chassis plate should be identical to a 911 of the same period....
Can you offer any definitive advice on this one???
Many thanks,
Mike Holloway

Hi Armando,
Wow, what can I say? I've been a hard core 914 lover since I first saw one come out and have always wanted to convert mine into a GT. I've been restoring 356s, early 911s and 4-cam Spyders (718 models) for KAM Motorsports in CT in my early days and you have asked about the center park brake set up, specifically the ratchet type. Yes, the Spyders (RS 60 & RSK) have them however the release mechanism is a bit different than yours. Oh hell, early 356 got them under the dash.
anyway, I look forward to hear you driving the car and I hope it would be soon! I'd love to have a chit chat with you in person, hopefully some day!

Good luck and stay on it, man....you're getting there!

John Falkenstine20-Jan-2007 02:27
Great collection of images. I came over to the States In Feb of 72 as a mechanic. The car: a 914-6 ex factory with the 12-plug Carrera engine and all of the lightweight fiberglas items, which were very, very fragile and needed constant attention. The owner lived in Statesboro Georgia. The car was fast, the resources limited and too many cooks spoiled the broth. Turning off the front straight at Daytona, the car was wrecked with Bob Stoddard driving who survived but a bit bruised. It also raced at the Sebring 12 hours in 1972, but a malfunctioning ignition switch caused the car to take off with an engaged starter and ruined the electrical system (I had flagged the switch as an item, but was overridden by the same expert who also ruined things). A pit accident in which an entire dump can of fuel ended up on me and not in the fuel tank feathered my urge to stay in the racing business. I turned down an offer to move to another, better team, moved to Tucson Arizona and never looked back. The picture galleries are really excellent, altough the 914 was never my favorite race car. Altough the layout with the engine was terrific, as with many cars from that era, the customer was part of the final design process, and Aerodymanics for race cars were still in their infancy. When I arrived in the States in '72 I was very, very disappointed with the manner in which the 914 was campaigned in the States. There appeared to be an almost Luddite-type resistance to fuel injection, and backward rules by the SCCA seriously interfered with the 914-6's potential. On the plus side, safety regulations and rules in the US were, far, far better than those in Europe, where drivers were considered something as macho types who died in style with their vehicles at an alarming rate.

I am in the process of doing a six cylinder conversion, and am at a loss as to where to either find or modify the engine lid so that the front panel is also the open grillework. Is a GT engine lid available somewhere, or do I modify the present lid?
Thank you.

Hello Armando
We spoke recently about some "GT" parts listed on ebay and you were good enought to advise me that they were not for a GT at all.
I actually have two 6's (one restored ,one to be a 3L R Gruppe sleeper). I am hoping that you can provide me with a copy of the factory 914 6 race preparation parts list and any associated illustrations. I'm asking for this to help me find or fabricate parts for my oil cooler system and other parts of the car.
Thank you
914-6 GT09-Sep-2006 01:19
Hello Michael and thanks for the great post.

My recommendation is very simple; What ever you decide to do to your factory 914-6, do the best you possibly can to do it 'correctly' as doing something less is very easy to do. I only say this to you because at the beginning, I failed to put my ‘best foot forward’ ending up doing it all over again in some cases (I always recommend doing the mods the factory way, it looks very “Porsche” and nothing else).

Should you decide to put flares on your factory 914-6, please don’t use fiberglass, you will decrease its value. I guarantee it. If you use the steel flares, then have someone that has done it before that you can trust to do a great job (not just a good job, a great job). There are many ways to welding steel flares on a car but probably not many ways to do them right.

Regarding the front oil-cooler. This will get complicated and expensive in a big hurry if you plan to implement it ‘a la factory GT’… Let me explain;

• Front Oil Cooler “correct” reproduction $1,200 to $1,500 (probably $1,500)
• Front Oil Cooler Steel Shroud repro $1,500 (or more?) Not sure yet as we are not done with the templates. Two piece kit, all steel, exact replica.
• Front Oil Lines to Oil-Cooler $ ? (2 oil lines needed).
• Hard-Brass Oil Lines $1,250 (go on side of driver rocker panel) Custom ordered, can take several months…
• Oil-Lines for engine compartment $ ? - They will ALL have to be custom made (price, not available yet)
• 911S Oil-Thermostat $375 to $550 depending where, when and if you find it one.
• 914-6 GT Oil Filler Neck Repro $1,200 to $1,500
• 911S Oil Console $495 or try to find a use one if possible for less (Magnesium corrodes, later made in Aluminum).
• 914-6 GT Oil Console Extension, a reproduction $250
• 914-6 GT or 911 RSR Oil-Pressure By-Pass Valve $1,500 if you can find one.

As you can see, it’s not going to be easy and I’m not sure what you have in mind as far as the implementation of the front oil-cooler. If your 914-6 has racing history of any kind, then I highly suggest to start saving your dollars to do it the right way, the factory way. If not, then you can always do what others have done and that is replace each of the above components with what ever works and does a similar job. It will never look correct but it will for sure be a whole lot cheaper.

Where are you located? Let me know… Feel free to call me on the cell if you want to chap of have any further questions.

All the best! Armando Serrano

Your collection of photographs from the restoration of your 914-6 is simply amazing.....I just brought home my first Porsche (1970 914-4) and your photo-documentation will be "PRICELESS" in my efforts to refreshing the car to its original glory.

Hello Armando, I own 9140431306 currently with a 2.7RS MFI and original 2.0L in garage. I've owned the car for 18 years. It's about to be sent out for M471 flares and restoration. Your site reinvigorated me to get the car out of moth balls (has sat for 8+ years) and start to enjoy it again. Thanks for all your efforts!

After much debate, I've decided to go "modern" and am installing a 3.6L DME motor, 915 trans w/ZF LSD and so on. In my youth I was a mechanic and still work in the car business -- I guess I've just become spoiled by how well current technology works. Having said that, the finished car will retain ALL of the other original and correct aspects of a M471 optioned model. Again, thank you for putting all the terrific content on your site. Mike

Hello Dino and thank you for visiting my GT site…

To be honest, I have no clue on a 914-4 to 914-6 conversion as my 914 is a factory 914-6 and NOT a conversion. I have never done a conversion from start to finish, specially using the late motors as the one you mentioned. My suggestion is very simple and it provides you lot’s of already true and proven implementations…

Go to the Pelican Partshttp://www.pelicanparts.com/index.htm 914 Technical sectionhttp://www.pelicanparts.com/914/914-6_construction_kit/914-6_construction_kit.htm as well as the 914 Technical Articleshttp://www.pelicanparts.com/914/914tech_articles.htm and don’t fail to also visit the 914 Club by going here http://www.914club.com/index.php and post your questions there as well as searching their database. You will certainly get plenty of information from those two sources.

Sorry that I can’t help you in that area and thanks again for contacting me first.

Hello Armando,
I'm actually looking at doing the upgrade of a 3.6 engine in my 74 914. Is there any way I can ask you some questions about your conversion. I've took a look around your site first and still have questions concerning the difficulty of mounting the engine in the 914. The older engines mount no problem as there are plenty of engine/firewall mounting kits for the 3.2 and older 911 engines. They also have no trouble bolting up to the 901 tranny. But I've heard that the mounting of a 3.6 is another story altogether.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

An absolutely great site. The pictures are just brilliant at telling the story! It is a great source of shared knowledge for me.
Oh!, and by the way, I am in the process of converting my 914-6 ( which was a 914) into a GT replica for Tarmac ralley racing in Australia.
On that note I have a tailshift mechanism and trying to keep it as original as possible but still have a direct shift, I am in the process of removing the offset to the shift rods just after they pass through the fire wall, installing a universal joint and then fitting a direct rod back to the gear box whilst still clearing the exhaust headers.
Dohave any photos in your file system showing your solution??? and do you know any secret to getting the most positive gear change???
Steve Hurt 23-Mar-2006 04:20
I really enjoyed your site and the restoration efforts. It reflects your love for the 914-6GT. Orginality is hard to accomplish especially getting all the required parts in the smallest detail; having to manufacture the missing ones and the ones there is no longer around. The effort of commitment, support, and commitment is self evident. Your efforts are at the highest professional level. Keep going and I will return to enjoy again and again.

Thank you Chuck. I wish my GT was already done so I can drive it. Maybe one more year or so... : (

The Porsche family tree respectfuly honored in words and pictures, well done!
I wish my 914-6 was a GT. Take Care

Hi Steve!

Glad to see you had a chance to log on to the site. There are an awful lot of photos, specially the “vintage” race photos. They’re timeless! I hope you decide to keep your 911 as I do look forward to some day being able to go out and have fun with our Porsche’s.

Let’s stay in touch. All the best!

Hi Armando, a year ago, I got re-interested in the Porsche 914. I found a genuine 1970 914/6 wreck to restore. Just recently started to strip the car to prepare for bodywork. Each time when I get back, somewhat disappointed, I regain hope and lots of useful stuff when looking at your work. Keep up the spirit and congrats for your fabulous work!

Do you know of any source that replicates the GT headlight cable actuated kit?
BTW I emailed back in March, my original 6 has been apart since then and I have gone "over the top" as far as making a GT (update) car. Car is at paint now, nothing has been untouched on this car, should start going back together late this year.
Doug Shelton 31-Aug-2005 17:36
Hello Armando!

Wonderful web site. I've just recently become "re-interested" in the 914-6 and find the photo galleries and surveys of recent sales to be quite helpful in deciding whether my interest is realistic, or just a pipe dream. Thanks for this great effort.

Regards,
Doug

Hi Armando,
First, I would like to complement you on your 914-6 GT web site. Your dedication to the marque speaks for it self. I recently completed an 8 year restoration on 914-6 ser # 914 043 2638. I decided to follow the path you've taken, create a 914-6 GT for the street. If you would be interested, it would be my privilege to provide pictures and data about my Porsche.
Either way, thanks for providing a source this project.

Regards,
Tony

Hi
A friend of mine has just bought a 914-6 with the chassis no. 914 043 0248 which was imported into the UK from the USA some years ago where we think it was raced. Does anyone know this car? Maybe was originally Green - now Gray.

Thank you for the "heads-up" Jeffery on the Marelli cap and rotor! My friend Bill Noon is currently bidding those parts and hope that he gets them. Thanks again and good luck with your project. ;)
Jeffery Patterson 25-Mar-2005 18:54
I don't know if you are interested but there is a 12 plug Marelli distributor cap on ebay. The item # is 4537827807. I hope I was able to help you in your search as I have a 914/6 that I have been putting back together for the past 20 years.

Armando incredible site!! I too am a GT fan, and a 914 fan for 35 years. I have an orig. 6 with many upgrades, 3.2 motronic, 915 trans, 911s suspension etc. Are in the process of transforming to "GT look" and will be installing my new 3.6 euro 993 engine. I have used your site for inspiration and reference. Great work, keep it coming.
DionRonio 13-Jan-2005 20:18
Armando,This is a fantastic site for 914 fans. I currently have a 914 73 2.o The pictures and info on this site is just incredible. I find myself spending too much time on the computer instead of in the garage!
914-6 GT12-Jan-2005 01:07
Hello Steven, I would start by looking in the current and recent past issues of "Panorama" (you will find several ads of factory 914-6 cars for sale). Place a "WTB" (Want-To-Buy!)ad at the Pelican Parts Classifieds as well as the Rennlist site. I would also join eBay and create an automatic search for a "914-6" car, you will be notified as these cars become available. Glad to hear you like the 914-6 GT site. Hope this helps...

Armando, you have an awesome site. Not too many people go to the level of detail in photographing, narrating and organizing thier photo's. Of course all the old porsche racing stuff is really neat to see. I am curious as to what they constructed the velocity stacks out of on the 8 cylinder racing engines. Looks like plastic? or some sort of resin?. I suppose just like with the injection lines they turn more brown from the fuel with the more use they get. I know that the red RSR stacks were plastic (although I have seen some of the 2.8 rsr stacks in steel), but appear to be simpler in design. Would love to know the answer.
CHad Hallmark 24-May-2004 15:27
Great site. Please keep updating it. This is the best 914 site out there. I have some pics of my GT if you are interested. It is almost complete. These cars are a ball to drive on the street and track and I hope enthusiasts keep bringing them back to life.

You bet! Won't miss it for the world! I will be rigging up the Lufthansa 914-6 GT of Mark Allin with 3 Hi-Res Color video cameras and 2 audio sources to capture part of the event. I also hope to do the same for Carl Thompson's new 917. These would be an awesome video! Hope to see you there.

Hi Armando,
really like the detailed 914 pics. I'm a 914 nut myself. Together with my dad we own 2 914's (unfortunately "just" two 1973 2.0 914-4's haha)
As I said, love the pics and I can look at them for ever, they really get my hands itching to do some work on our own 914's.
Have a good one!
