1975 Time Warp Porsche 914
Found here on The Samba is a very original 1975 Porsche 914 1.8. This 914 was originally sold in Pensacola, Florida and has spent its life in the Sunshine State and Georgia. The car still wears its original Laguna Blue color (paint code L50C) although it has had one respray. The 914 features rare white vinyl seats, center bolster and door cards, which offset the blue nicely. The stitching at the center of the rear bolster has pulled slightly and there is a ¼” rip on the upper passenger door card. Other than that, the interior is in great shape. The original grey carpet makes a nice contrast and shows very little wear. The factory Blaupunkt AM/FM radio is present and works although it is slow to turn on. All of the gauges and lights function as they should. The mileage is 112,131. I have a stack of records dating back to the cars’ delivery in August 1975 including the original window sticker from Bill Campbell Porsche + Audi in Pensacola.
The original 1.8 liter Type IV motor is present and retains its Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection. The 1.8 pulls nicely and cruises at highway speeds with ease. The side-shift Type 901 5-speed transmission shifts in all gears and the four-wheel disc brakes stop well with no brake fade. Period correct German ATS five-spoke 15” wheels are wrapped with Bridgestone Potenza G019 Grid 195/65R15 tires that have very few miles on them. Originally an A/C equipped car, the condenser is still mounted in the front trunk however the rest of the system has been removed.
The shock towers and floorboards are in great shape. Rust present is a silver dollar-sized area of surface rust on the passenger side rear fender, slight surface rust in the rear trunk (no holes) and a hole at the base of the passenger side firewall.This 914 runs and drives great and is perfect for a spring trip to the mountains or your favorite section of twisty road.
The car has a clear title and is in Athens, Georgia. Feel free to email with questions. $11,500 obo.
Late ’72 Built Porsche 914 Project
Found here on The Samba is an early ’73 914 Project.
Originally painted Olympic Blue (L51P) this 914 has been resprayed red at some point in time. The original 1.7l remains although the fuel injection has been swapped for a single Weber. The motor spins freely however we haven’t tried to start it. The preferable side shift transmission is present and engages in all 5 gears + reverse. The interior is fair but will need some work. The rockers and floors are sound less one rust hole at the back passenger side. The hell hole has rust that has been painted over by a previous owner and the battery mount moved to the rear trunk. Assume that this area will need more work. All in all this is a good project or a great complete parts car for your other 914. We have several other parts available if interested. $1950 or best offer. Feel free to email with questions or to come see it. The 914 is in Athens, GA. Sold as is with a bill of sale only. Buy these up before they head north along with the other early Porsches.
1975 Porsche 914 2.0 liter
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.

Porsche 914-6 Rally Recreation in Nevada
Well, its for sale folks!! The VintageWerkes first saw this radical rally 914 in Monterey, California at Laguna Seca in 2010. The owner took a run-of-the-mill 1970 1.7l 914-4 and transformed it into a fire breathing 914-6 stripped down and then built back as a rally car that could probably tackle the Dakar. A 2.8 liter twin plug 911 motor is mated to a 915 gear box and all the rally garb you could imagine has been added. Now get this….with everything blazing you’ll have 14 lights shinning on the front of this thing (we hope the alternator has been upgraded) so the road should be pretty clear ahead. Couple that with a full roll cage, period rally gauges and a Red Stripe beer paint scheme and this would be a blast at any vintage rally event. Find it above on The Samba for a steep $55k. Do it yourself though and we’re sure you’d have more in it than that.
1972 Porsche 914
This is our ’72 Porsche 914. It has been in the family since 2007 and has received several upgrades along the way. The stock 1.7 liter engine has been bored to 2.0 liters and received a mild cam. We replaced the original fuel injection with dual Weber carburetors and a Borla free flow exhaust was added. The original 901 tail shift transmission was swapped for a newer side shift unit and suspension and tire upgrades were made. We’ve left the paint and body work original as it shows a nice bit of patina from its time in Arizona, Texas and Oklahoma with previous owners. The result is a lightweight, fast and fantastic handling car that has been used in several road rallies and even landed on the top step of the podium in 2012.
