The cars history
This car is a low mileage, survivor, unmolested, numbers matching, clean all over, no accidents or damage history, no rust anywhere, garage kept, non-smoker, adult enthuses owners, with only one repaint and one engine rebuild. The entire car looks and feels like it is a new car. This car remained with its original Porsche enthuses owner for over 40 years and I am the 4th owner.
Paint and body
Show quality, base coat clear coat paint job performed in 2012. The reflection is deep, and the body panels are flat and gives off a stunning mirror reflection at every angle. The body has no visible paint lines and or overspray anywhere. There are no dents and the gaps on the hood trunks and doors are factory perfect and they all open and close with a wonderful mechanical sound. All the cars glass, chrome, rubber, plastic, carpets, painted finishes have virtually no flaws except what is listed in the discloser below.
The carâ€™s interior is cosmetically near perfect, all original black factory Porsche Basket Weave interior. The dash pad is in perfect shape with no cracks and it come with a carpet cover to protect it from damage. The dash, steering wheel, seats, door cards, foot pedals, gauges, control stalks, heater lever, shiftierand boot, air controls, rear view mirror, shifter, ash tray all look like new. The carpet and headliner were replaced a few years ago and look great. It has beautiful new black/yellow Coco woven mats.
Engine, transmission and electrical
This Porsche still has its original number matching drive-train. In 1993 the engine was rebuilt when the odometer was reading 6,320 miles. It has traveled around 24k miles on its 1.8-liter engine to date. The engine is very nice to look at and very clean. All the parts have settled and are well lapped in. It runs and idles perfect and does not smoke or leak oil or make strange noises. I have replaced most of the hoses on the engine with the correct type fabric type originals. It always starts easy, reeves nicely to red line and the transmission shifts smoothly in all gears and the syncosand clutch are working correctly. Everything electrical on the car works as well.
Suspension braking and under carriage
The underside of the car has been restored, it has new brake rotors, pads, calipers and steel breaded brake lines. The suspension has been restored to like new appearance and has new A arm bushings, tie rods, rear shocks, front struts sleeves that are all painted with the correct black finishes and new or restored nuts, bolts and hardware. It handles like it on rails and the brakes with authority. The underside of the car looks like new and is as nice as the top.
About the restoration
I left many of the original parts and their original patinas in place. The car has been gone through top to bottom in a deep inspection process. Every item on the car that did not meet high standards, was replaced with a new original type parts or I have restored the parts to their original type condition. This Porsche has near perfect, to perfect paint, glass, interior, carpet, engine, engine compartment, transmission mechanical, electrical, trunk compartments, suspension, braking systems, wheels, tires, undercarriage and in some areas much better than original. I purchase this car as a high number 2 in very original condition, then bought it home and treated it to a labor intensive, attention to every detail restoration. The quality of all the finishes on the 914 are incredible. This is the only 914 on market that gives you a real look under the skirt and highlights of all the details that are generally left hidden by other resellers. Rest assured that any area on the car not seen in the photos will be just as nice as the rest of the car. Photos of any area of the car are available if requested. I am highly skilled at all the automobile restoration processes and have many yearsâ€™ experience performing similar types of restorations. I work with both antique American and European cars and do these restorations as a hobby in my spare time. Many of my past projects are in museum, private collections and appreciative owners that show and share these special cars around the world.

This Porsche 914 is in museum/ show quality. The car is in #1 condition! It has been conservatively restored, enhanced, cleaned and groomed from top to bottom. This car will score very high at concurs events and will always win at your local car show. This car is extremely reliable can be driven from Dallas TX to anywhere, without malfunctioning. You should take your money out of the risky stock market and invest it in an asset you can touch, one that will only appreciate very rapidly in the near future. I am asking $39,995 or OBO. Compare the rest, but if you are looking for the best, this is the one!
