Car description

For sale is a 1971 914. It has approximately 300 miles on it since getting it back on the road after extensive work. It was last on the road in 1991. It is currently a functioning, road legal car that is driven several times a week weather permitting. A lot of work has been completed on this car but there is plenty more to be done. I planned to keep driving it while I completed the remaining work on it but I am losing interest so it is time to move on. The car has been kept stock with very few changes.


You can be proud to show off your hell hole to all your 914 buddies with this car! The chassis started out in decent shape for an east coast car and I stripped it down and repaired all major rust. Whenever possible I used aftermarket repair panels instead of patches. After repairs were completed, I epoxy primed and painted under the floor, the interior, and the engine/transmission bay. I added undercoat to the bottom of the floor before the color-coat was added. Longitudinals were also treated. Stock jack can be used with no issue. There are a few non-structural areas that still need some rust repair/attention as seen in the pictures. Exterior will need bodywork completed. A few exterior weld seams will need to be worked over before bodywork. Areas that still need paint: Trunks, Wheel wells, exterior.


The motor is a stock 1.7L. It just had its first oil change since being rebuilt. The motor was completely broken down, inspected, and rebuilt. Heads were rebuilt, new oil cooler, rebuilt alternator, yellow zinc plated pushrod tubes, new hardware used and oil galley passages were tapped and plugged. All engine tin was media blasted and repainted with a 2-part satin black paint. It has the original D-Jet fuel injection on it. Everything was tested and gone through. Injectors were serviced, all new vacuum hoses, etc. It runs great. Heat system is installed on the motor with all painted ducting and new flapper boxes. It has stainless steel heat exchangers in great shape. The flywheel on the motor is a lightened unit. New clutch disk, pressure plate, throw-out bearing, and new clutch fork bushings. The transmission has not been rebuilt but it was thoroughly cleaned and all seals replaced. All new shift bushings. All cables were replaced (accel, clutch, speedo, heat). New motor/tranny mounts. The motor still needs a few small things such as a new intake boot and AAR valve but otherwise very little needs to be done to the drivetrain.

Most of the interior is original. Seats and backpad are in good shape. New carpet kit installed. New insulation has been installed on the back wall. Custom sound deadening mats. New vinyl floor trim.
