70' Porsche 914-6, sn 914.043.1753 - 2007/Sep Sold $20,600

(09/19/2007) Sold on eBay $20,600! Here is what the owner had to say...

Get ready to turn some heads! Up for auction is a mighty fine example of a true factory 914-6 with steel M471 flares, rockers and a double grated engine lid.

Up for auction is a fantastic and fun factory 914-6. The steel flares and polished fuchs make this car really stand out from the rest. A brand new carpet kit and matching leather interior also make for an eye catching combo. I have owned this car for 13 years and have done many improvements and repairs over the years to make this car a blast to drive along with being a very reliable weekend warrior.

914-6 number 9140431753 started out life as a light ivory car when it left the factory. Sometime in the 70's this car was painted a hideous maroon color, I only saw one picture of the car when it was that color and it already had the flares on it. The previous owner did not pass that particular picture on to me when I purchased the car. I do not have a picture and I never saw a picture of this car when it was painted light ivory, so I do not know if the flares were on the car when it left the factory or were a dealer installed option. I can tell you that the flares are a true GT flare and it has the correct steel rockers to match. This car also has the double grated engine grill that only came with the dealer optional M471 kit. These are the only parts from the M471 appearance package that are on the car. This car never had a front mounted oil cooler and was never butchered to receive one. I have had a couple of comments by true Porsche enthusiasts that have gotten a close look at the welds of the flares to the body panels as being "factory quality". The correct steel flared front valance was destroyed beyond repair when I received the car and I tossed it out before found out how rare and important of a part it was. Instead a stock steel non-flared valance has been used and modified to fit the flares. I had one of Automobile Atlanta's fiberglass reproduction flared valances and was not pleased with the quality of the unit, so it was not used. 1753 stayed maroon until the early nineties when it was purchased by it's 2nd or third owner. This owner had the car painted Rauch-Quarz metallic which translates to "smoke-quartz" or more commonly referred to as smoke gold. Factory Porsche color code 662 or X5 for some cars in 1982-1984. At the same time the interior was recovered to nicely compliment the exterior. The same painter that paint's or at least used to paint all of Prince's guitars painted this car. I believe the shop was in Long Lake, MN. In 1994 this 914-6 struck a Ford T-bird that pulled out in front of it damaging the front pan, headlight boxes and hood. At this time the vehicle was still at a low enough value to determine the accident a total loss. I then purchased this car from the insurance auction and started collecting parts. The title was branded rebuilt after being inspected years later. A rust free front end was sourced from Brad Meyer in Peoria, IL. All of the metal work to fit the new front pan was done at a hot rod shop in Blaine, MN called Car Creations. Ron and Mike Stivers at Car Creations have done the metal work on such cars as Goodguys 2003 car of the year. Needless to say they did a beautiful job and I have had multiple 914er's tell me how nice the front end lines are before they even knew the car had body work done to it. After the metal work was done the front end was painted in primer and had to sit on the backburner for a couple of years while I moved to Montana. Eventually the car came with me out to Montana and the rest of the body work was done at Blue Ribbon Auto Body in Missoula, MT. I finished putting the front end back together in fall of 1999. In 2000 I brought the car back to Minnesota where it has been garaged and stored from October to May every year. I have won a couple of car shows with this car and a few autocrosses also. I am selling this vehicle to fund a new 911 project.

Everything on this car works exactly as it should and is ready to be driven by it's new owner. TURNKEY!!! There are not a million little issues that need to be sorted out.

The engine was rebuilt about 1,000 miles ago. The engine is an original 2.0 case with the 2.0 crank. The pistons and cylinders are 90mm 2.7 units and the heads are 2.4. I had the engine and transmission work done at Flatsix. If you look at the first picture on the gallery page you will see my car in the background behind the green Carrera. Take a look at some of the work they have performed for other people and you will see that they were absolutely the right people for the job. The case was sent to Ollie's for line boring and inspection along with the heads that were beveled to accept the larger pistons. A turbo oil pump replaced the stock unit and DR Cams provided his Mod Solex cam to help it breath a little better. All new gaskets and bearings were used along with new piston rings. This was a true rebuild not just an engine freshening. The motor is very drivable on the street but really starts to scream when you hit 5000rpm. It will continue to pull right though to 6000rpm and wants to keep going. Currently the MSD system has the rev limiter set to 6000 so it has not been over revved. Now that it has a thousand miles on the motor I see no problem bumping the limit up to 6800 or so. The sport exhaust is installed and coupled to the headers it sounds like an RSR. It is loud!! I have retained the original exhaust which I will include, but it needs to be sent out to jet hot. The valves have just been adjusted for the first time and the oil was changed, it is ready to run! While the engine was out during the rebuild I had a couple of the oil lines rebuilt too. It really is ready for it's new owner.

As with almost every 914 on the road this car has not escaped mother natures path in the past. Quite sometime before I owned the car the passenger side floor was damaged and had to have a patch panel installed and it was done poorly. The patch has started to rust but does not seem to be structural in any sort. This car does not sag a millimeter and the doors close like they are factory fresh. The battery was relocated to the front trunk and is in a boat box. I am sure the original box was removed due to some sort of corrosion but the wall is solid. You will notice that there is one other picture near the fuel pump that has rusted through metal at the back of the beam. The jack points are fine, as are the hack tubes. I have looked over the inner rockers closely and they are still in good shape. Please don't let this small amount of rust scare you, it is very repairable and is still very solid everywhere else.

The headlight shrouds are painted body color and are a very nice touch when up, much more subtle than the original tacky white plastic. The steering wheel is an old Personal wheel that suits the car very well, feels great and is in super condition. The radio is an oldschool RCA unit that has a built in CB that still works and goes in the stock location perfect. The dash is in great shape with no cracks and features a wood grain that I have not seen in any other 914. The top is in great shape, but the two rubber holders in the trunk at the rear need to be replaced. The felt strips for the door window seals need to be replaced as they are in rough shape. All of the other rubber is pretty clean and has many years of sealing left.
