Great little daily driver condition car. I’ve owned it for about 5 years and drive it whenever I feel like without worry. Have taken a couple 500 mile fall road trips to visit my dad in it. Odometer said 49,000 something when I got it and hasn’t moved. Speedometer works. The owner before me brought it back to life with the paint job and dual Webbers. I had to chase down a few electrical troubles and put in a new peddle cluster. Also have given it a couple new tires and a new starter and battery. Other than that I just drive in the nice weather season which is short up here in Northern NY. I find myself picking one of my motorcycles these days instead of the 914 so time to let it go. Soon as I do I’ll end up with a new girlfriend who would have loved riding shotgun rather than, ou-know-where on the bike.
It’s short comings include some peeling paint on the top, ee pic. A few cracks in the dash, loppy shifter, hich isn’t bad once you learn your way around. E-brake cable needs tightening. Leaks a bit of oil.
That said, start it without problem all winter (when it warms up a bit from time to time) and it gives no trouble. I’m always surprised actually. I run non-ethanol high-test in it. Its great looking and a serious head turner. Very fun to drive as it feels like its glued to the road. And you can get parts easily from several places.
NY inspection good thru November. Please come and look it over, nbsp;drive it if you like. E-mail me with any questions but know that while I'll tell you anything I know, ’m not that critical of an owner as long as the vehicle starts and runs and is fun to drive… which this one surely is. Thanks to my friend Mark a professional photographer and a car guy for taking the pics. $500. via paypal within 48 hrs. Rest by bank check within 7 days. Local pick up only. NY DMV is 1.5 miles away and never very busy,( really!) If you're going to register it and drive it home or I can send paperwork after payment. Can make arrangements to be around for your shipper pick up. Remember this is an old used daily driver car. You should drive it before you buy it if you can. If you can't, 'll answer everything I can as best as I can for you. For sale locally so reserve right to end early if it sells. Thanks for looking. Mike
