Seller Notes: This car has been sitting for almost 10 years. It comes with a clear title. The engine turns over. The car rolls freely. The body is straight and pretty solid but does have some typical 914 rust that will need to be taken care of.(see pics and videos below) This car does not run, has not run for 10 years and will need to be towed to its new home.

This Classic 914 was recently found after sitting for almost 10 years.   

I used to have one of these back in the day and picked this up thinking I would restore it but recently, I have come to the conclusion that I have way too many projects already and I know I will never get to it so I am hoping someone will give this the love it deserves.


All of the glass is in good shape. The windows roll up and down properly. The door latches work properly and both doors open from the inside and outside handles. 


The interior is complete and very nice. The door panels are in very good shape and not torn or ripped. The dash is in nice condition. There are a few small cracks but it is still soft and pliable. All the gauges are in good shape too. The seats are in very nice shape too.  The center console and the vinyl behind the seats and between them is nice too. The carpet is in good condition too.   The steering wheel, shift boot, etc. are all in good shape. Luckily, this interior was protected from the sun.

The body is very straight and there are no signs of any major collisions. The floors are solid. The front trunk is solid. The rear trunk area has some rust where the tail light panel meets the trunk floor but not bad and the trunk floor is solid although it looks rusty, most of what you see is surface rust and looks worse in the pictures then it really is. The doors are very solid. There is a small rust bubble on the front bottom of the passenger door. The quarter panels and fenders are solid. The hood hinges must have had some problem and it looks like someone tried to force it up and bent a small section of the cowl on the drivers side. 
The hinges and springs were removed and are included.
 The front edge of the sheet metal where the front of the hood would close is a bit torn. It looks like someone tried to maybe tow if from there? Should not be a difficult fix.  The rear trunk hinges work and are in place but will need to be adjusted as it doesn't close quite right. The truck lock sticks a bit too.  The doors open and close properly and and the door handles open from the inside and outside properly and the doors line up nicely. All the door gaps are nice and the doors close solid. There is a spot of rust on the top of the drivers side quarter panel next to the door. There is a section on the rear trunk lid, front hood and right rear quarter panel where it had some bondo and it is coming off. It was touched up with paint to keep it from rusting. 


The targa top is in very nice shape and fits well

The Engine and Transmission look to be original to the car. I have not touched it other then seeing if it would turn over. The engine is free and turns over with a jump start. The engine still has oil in it and the oil looks good. The car was converted to a weber carburetor in the past. The clutch pedal feels good and the transmission seems to go into all 5 gears and reverse. The Anza exhaust looks good and the heat exchanger's look good too.

The car has the rare factory option Fuchs Wheels. They are in really nice shape with no curb rash and will polish up to be beautiful. The tires are in good shape with lots of tread left and are all holding air and roll fine. The spare is also a Fuchs wheel and is in good shape too.

Overall, this is a complete 914 that looks like it was well maintained prior to being parked and with a bit of work, will be a great car and just needs someone that is looking to give it the love it deserves. It should be restored and returned to its former glory. Finding one that is complete and unmolested is getting harder. This car could be very nice with some work and a nice paint job. 

The odometer is reading 68,000 and the car looks too nice for the odometer to have turned over but I can not be sure. The seats, dash, carpets and door panels do not show the wear associated with higher mileage. The mileage is likely correct and the title reflects this car being of actual mileage but it is best to say that the True mileage is unknown.  

There are a bunch of extra parts in a box in the trunk and a workshop manual, etc. 

It comes with a clear title.
