1975 Porsche 914 appearance groupFor Sale Zambezi Green 1975 Porsche 914 2.0 with appearance group package $35,000
3rd owner and I have the contact details of the prior owners if requested
I have rebuilt the original 2.0 engine and bored it up to a 2.3 liter with bigger pistons, cam shaft and all and any parts needed for it.
Updated to electronic ignition with exterior oil cooler and fan under rear trunk.
The fly wheel, pressure plate and all parts for the clutch are new.
The transmission has been rebuilt with synchronizers replaced, seals and shifting bushings are new.
My Porsche currently has 82,290 original miles. I bought the car from another Porsche enthusiast who bought my car as a package deal with a 69 911s from a broker who bought it from the original owner. The 75 914 had been sitting in a storage shed for over 20 years, and its registration and license plate stickers last read from 1982. The car originally had 52,000 or so miles on it when I bought it and I had been convinced by a few mechanics that the engine needed to be rebuilt.
The engine was rebuilt with European Motor Works, please feel free to speak to George the owner and he will fill you in about any details or questions regarding the engines performance and build specs. (310-644-8038)
I fully re-painted the car to its original color L-64 Zambezi green with Martin at Beach Boys Racing in Venice Beach Ca.
The engine compartment insulation pad/fire wall pad is new.
This is a carbureted engine with new 44 Weber’s.
She has all around air shocks (Konies) both front and rear original sway bars and new rear springs.
New fuel pump, new starter, all new stainless steel fuel lines, break lines and new hoses. Everything was overhauled. I even had the windshield washer fluid updated to an electric version using the windshield wiper switch. All parts that were suggested were power coated, Ive done everything to the car that an enthusiast would want to have his/her 914 restored to.
Most of all the mechanical work and my continued up-keep of the car is through Alex Wong at Precision Tech Motor Sports in Culver City (I highly recommend him for any 914 owner looking for a honest mechanic) 310-822-4566
I only have 2 aftermarket rubber seals on the car purchased from 914 rubber. (Main targa top seal and the trunk seal)
Door locks lubed and repaired and work perfectly. The windshield wiper lever was replaced and the bulbs in the dash have been replaced too.
I spent a lot of money updating the stereo system to integrate with the original factory installed radio so all is hidden. (Stereo upgrades done through Al-and Edd’s in Santa Monica) amp, crossovers, new speakers and passenger floor sub that is unique and hidden. So you can play the radio through the original radio with modern 4 way sound (not the original 2 way) and also have an auxiliary output cable to use and switch between radio or aux.
The car has 5 professionally chromed 2.0 Fuchs and new tires.
The car has been my daily driver for the past few years and very reliable and fun to drive. All electricals, everything works on the car with the recent exception of the seatbelt sensor light now working.
The car comes with the original 1975 owner’s manual and dealer advertisement broacher’s for the car. (also I have binder of original early 70’s magazines)
I’m into the car for well over $50k+ (stopped counting) I had my rotator cuff on my right shoulder repaired 4 weeks ago and I cant drive my car and so she’s sitting under a waterproof car cover in my driveway.
The dash top is flawless and original, all original window glass is in good condition except once minor freeway chip on the front windshield that had been applied glue some 3 years ago when occurred.
I backdated the rubber 1975 bumblers to early chrome bumpers w/o the bumperets.
I have done so much with this car, re-upholstered the interior in full, added seat warmers, stainless steel heat exchangers, completely re-painted the car at Beach Boys Racing in Venice. (Original shop next door to where Otto’s used to be)
I have many collector item parts that come with the car. Currently I have the original 914/6 leather steering wheel and also have a vintage leather Nadi racing wheel and hub that I had on her before.
There’s many items Ive paid for to have my 914 in her current condition that I have not listed. Ive had such a love hate relationship with her from the beginning as I have invested so much money into getting her to the current condition.
Believe it or not the car has no rust (besides some very minor surface rust in some areas as I live close to the beach and she’s very straight)
Unfortunately due to regular use, there are some minor imperfections from my original overhaul. I do have 2 minor door dings on the passenger side door from other people opening their doors at parking lots and one minor one on the driver’s side door.
The dash face vinyl has started to peel and simply needs to have some minor touch ups at a upholstery shop to glue it back in place. The other is the very small freeway stone chip on the windshield glass, and that currently the seatbelt light is not turning on.
I am hoping for someone who is in interested in buying my car be in LA as I am unable to drive my 914. I am very happy to go with you to any mechanic to get a PPI inspection, or to have a reputable enthusiast from the 914 world forum arrive to my house and view my car on your behalf.
I have had a love hate relationship with my car, from finding her in original condition, and not knowing the financial journey to come and the experiences with sorting for parts, and time and energy spent during lengthy periods of the engine rebuild, to the transmission, to the electricals and many other experiences along the way.
A very well cared for 914, clean title in hand and registration is through to August 2017.
I am in no rush to sell the car and or interested in low ball offers. If the add is still up the car is for sale, otherwise has sold or I decided to keep it.
If interested contact Peter at 323-788-3856
With permission, I am also happy to pass along contact details for 914 reputable enthusiasts who know of my car and can vouch for her condition.
