Mileage: 53,150

Of the approximately 3,300 914-6’s ever made, only 432 were produced in 1971.  It’s hard to imagine a nicer or more original example than this one with just over 53,000 miles.  #914 143 0240 still has its correct, matching engine #641 4065.  The car had only 38,000 miles on it in 1989 when it underwent a meticulous, bare metal restoration, its one repaint in the original Porsche “8010 Silver” remains in beautiful condition.  The engine was rebuilt to original 2.0 specs.  The car retains the original “tailshifter” transmission, making every drive an adventure in shifting.

All photos were taken within the last month, and the car is exactly as it appears. Extraordinarily impressive, but not a show car, it has been driven sparingly and enjoyed, carefully maintained, always garaged and covered.  As you can tell from the photos, the gaps are uniform and the body panels are flat and straight. The headlights pop up together like synchronized swimmers. 

Original interior is in excellent condition, including a perfect dash with no cracks.  Carpets show some minor wear but are in excellent condition for their age.  Includes the carpeted passenger footrest, and the dealer-installed “All Transistor AM-FM Radio by Motorola Custom Built for Porsche with Push Button Tuning” (owner’s manual description, not mine).

What else is included?

Original vinyl portfolio with embossed Porsche logo is in reasonably good shape for its age—no tears or split seams.  Portfolio contains the original Owner’s Manual in fair condition, the original “Porsche Maintenance Record for USA” with initial delivery information and some useful notes, the two-page owner’s manual for the radio, and a documentation letter from Porsche in Germany dated June 18, 1991 confirming the car’s original engine number, paint color code, and optional equipment (tinted glass, center seat cushion, alloy wheels).  Also included is a fitted car cover and an extra set of four used but decent 5.5 x 14-inch Fuchs wheels with tires.  (see photos)

 What is imperfect or not original?

The steering wheel is obviously not original, though looks period.  As a result, horn button does not work.  Currently running K&N air filters, but original filter housing is included (see photo).  Currently has headers and sport exhaust, but original exhaust manifolds/heat exchangers (pitted) are included (see photo). Front brakes are 911S calipers and rear brakes are 911SC calipers, so there is no functioning handbrake, but original is included (see photos).  Original tool kit is now incomplete and unimpressive (see photos).  The windshield washer does not work (never considered driving the car when I’d need it). The original padded, upholstered headliner (standard on the 914-6) has some small tears near the front latches.  Also, someone along the way attempted to touch up the exterior of the targa top, and its finish is inconsistent. No spare tire. Very small nick in paint on front right fender.

 The car is freshly back from a top Porsche shop where it was serviced, inspected, and fitted with a new starter and alternator (because I couldn’t think of anything else to do with that $2800).  If I’ve omitted anything, send me an email and I’ll answer any questions you have.  Extensive history and mileage documentation available on request.
