1970 Porsche 914Porsche 914-6, enuine original six, he story of this car is that it started life as an Irish Green, an Jose, ne Owner car and still retains its proper CA Blue Plate.
In 1985 a local Porsche garage wascommissioned by a surgeon to build a fast track car, o they sourced this local car from its lady owner, t was in superb rust free, ccident free condition. They removed the motor and built what was at the time pretty much a state of the art 2.7 motor based on a 1975 911S case, t was fitted with European pistons and barrels, he internal components were all lightened and matched, hey also bumped up the compression and fitted WeberCarburetors.To the body they flared the original fenders by cutting a line along the top and inserting a triangular piece of metal front to back enabling the boxed flare (you can see the fillet from underneath) The front fenders received the same treatment although it was fashionable in those days to remove the turn signal housing and flatten the fender, his they did. Inside the car received a roll hoop behind the driver, hoop under the dashboard and tubing radiating forward from the front bar and back from the rear bar through to theadjacentcompartments. At the rear the metal tubing goes through factory holes in the trunk, he front is donewith little effect to the surrounding areas so could be very easily removed. The work is done very professionally and without damage to the surrounding metal.The nose received an oil cooler behind the bumper and several round holes were cut to the front trunk floor for the air to escape. Also from the front panel run some very nice metal tubes which direct air to the front brakes which are larger aftermarket aluminum calipers, he rears are the original 914/6 items. The rear of the monocoque has been strengthened as per normal with the panels on either side of the inner wheel wells and again this is done very professionallyThe battery has been relocated to the rear trunk in the middle and this is one ofthinly things I reallydon't like, he battery tray was removed from the inner engine compartment as the roll bar tube would interfere with the battery fitting.The transmission is a later side shifter, am told that it has a set of close ratio gears in it
The story goes that the car was finished and taken to the track for the new owner to drive, e took it out in the first session and scared himself to death, s soon as he came in he apparently never drove it again, t was then decided that it should be converted for the road, ut into primer and left, t was then simply parked in the owners garage where it sat from 1989 until the end of last year, he last registration tags on the blue plate are from 1989.
Motor & TransmissionThe motor is based on a 2.7 S motor from 1975, t has been fitted with European Pistons and Barrels and the compression was raised, t has correct 914-6 manifolds and exhaust,carburetors are correct Webers. When we found the 914-6 it had not been run since 1989, am told that the motor hasn't even covered 100 miles since the rebuild. To wake it up fresh oil, ilter and a new fuel pump were fitted, he carbs, rand new back then were quite plugged up with old fuel which had turned pretty nasty over the years, e have been cleaned them out and given and fitted new gaskets, otor starts and runs incredibly well, arbs pop and bang and would probably benefit from a proper rebuild, he motor makes no smoke at all. The transmission is a side shifter.
ShellA super solid shell with a perfect "Hell Hole" the well known danger area below the battery tray-always a place of concern on 914 models, he actual battery tray itself was removed. The floors are original and excellent with the exception of one piece of rust on the lower part of the floor which is about 2" x 4" its simply where the water has sat in the lowest point, ockers, ulkheads, ront pan, nner fenders are rock solid and excellent with absolutely no sign of accident damage. The inner fenders front and rear are solid and show no accident damage, he body number is still visible on the trunk floor, he doors are without bubbles or any rust, ll suspension points are good.
WheelsThe wheels are genuine Fuchs 7" and 9" X 15" and in excellent shape, nly one front wheel has any curb rash and that's just around the edgeSuspensionThe suspension is all Bilstein, ellow shocks at the rear with front anti sway bar, ts very solid and obviously set up for performance
This car would be perfect to make a fantastic GT replica, will supply some original front fenders cut from a parts car to convert the front of the car back to stock, ear quarters just need to have the triangular fillet cut out and two sides welded back together, y idea was to fit GT steel flares and make it into a canyon rocket
Included in the sale are a pretty comprehensive set of brand new replacement rubber seal for the car, hey are all new in the bags, ostly Porsche OE, lso a spare roof which is painted red and smooth plus various other parts that came with the car
