1975 Porsche 914 2.0 liter
Up for sale is a ’75 914 that has spent the last 20 years driving on the twisty, salt free roads of the Southeast. The 2.0-liter engine runs great and pulls extremely well. Strong and even compression numbers are listed below. A pair of Weber 40 IDF carburetors and a free flow exhaust let it breath a little easier while giving it a nice throaty tone to boot. The original sideshift 901 transmission shifts well through all 5 speeds plus reverse with no grinding or sliding out of gear. Rockers, hell hole under the battery tray, the firewall and shock mounts are all solid and rust free. The only bit of rust is in the floorboard under the driver’s seat. See pictures. Originally an A/C equipped car, the condenser is still mounted in the front trunk however the rest of the system has been removed.
This 914 was originally painted Berber Yellow (paint code L11D) but was repainted a slightly darker shade by the previous owner. While there are some dirt spots in the paint here and there, it shines nicely. Front and rear sway bars help it handle like it’s on rails and the 914 Fuchs wheels look great and are straight. The spare tire wheel has a crack in it and is included for originality but should not be used.
The bumpers, top and interior are in good shape. The original carpet set has some wear but no holes. The dashboard has some normal cracking and there are two small cracks in the lower seat bolsters but otherwise they are in great shape. An Alpine CD player has been added and sounds good mated to newer speakers in the kick panels. The original 914 steering wheel is in great shape as are all of the gauges (all working). The odometer functions properly and reads 20,071 but I cannot confirm whether or not it has rolled over. All lights function as they should. All of the glass is in good shape with only a small pea sized chip in the windshield near the driver’s side wiper.
All in all this is a great driver that you can hop in and hit the road. Take it on a vintage rally, out to your favorite bit of curves or pop the top and make a run to town. You’ll get some approving looks and have a blast while you’re at it.
Feel free to email with questions or to set up a time to view the 914. The car is located in Athens, GA.
