73 Porsche 914 1.7l matching numbers. Price: £6750
Porsche 914 Project car.
Complete, original matching numbers car that has been baking in the Nevada sun for many years.
The car will need to be recommissioned as it has not been on the road for some time.
The motor is the original EA code 1700cc unit. It is turning but hasn't run for a while.
Steering, suspension and brakes all standard.
One key fits all locks including the front bonnet lock. Doors and lids open and close fine. No saggy doors.
Internally its all original with complete dashboard. All correct switches, period radio and original bucket type seats.
Upholstery is fully original and does show its age in places.
The car has Minnesota title but has spent time in Texas and then many years in Nevada where the sun has baked off some of the older paint job exposing the metal. In some circles this would be seen as desirable patina but the car would lend itself well to a restoration.
Overall the car is very solid. The floors look very good underneath, jack points look good, inner wings seem fine. The battery tray has surface rust but is not rotten.
In the rear end of the rear boot / trunk there are a few rust holes but its a straight forward repair and repair panels are available. In the front spare wheel well there is a patch of surface rust which towards the rear has a few small holes. Not a complicated repair either and nothing structural. Previous owner had brushed some waxoyl into it to prevent it getting any worse.
Sills seem good, doors are solid too.
The body is quite good with minimal damage. There's a shallow dent on the offside rear wing and a few other fairly minor dings etc but overall pretty straight.
A very worthy project car and a great investment. The prices of these cars is only heading one way and that's up.
