1974 Porsche 914 2.0 Olympic Blue

Now available for auction is this 1974 Porsche 914 2.0 finished in Olympic Blue over a black leatherette interior.  Equipped with the optional Appearance Group and larger 2.0L engine, this 1974 example was purchased by the seller from its long-term previous owner out of Cleveland, OH.  The car is reported to have been under the care of its previous owner since the late 1970s and is said to be accompanied by an extensive collection of maintenance records.  This classic 2.0L 914 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Massachusetts with just over 76k miles showing on the 5-digit odometer.

This 1974 example is said to have been previously refinished in its orignal color of Olympic Blue, a pastel shade that was also offered on some VW models of the time.  Some signs of wear and imperfections are noted throughout the exterior, additional images are provided in the photo gallery.  Porsche side graphics have been applied, front fog lights are equipped as part of the optional Appearance Group, and this 914 rides on factory 15” “Baby Fuchs” wheels which will be mounted with new tires prior to sale.

Inside, you will find a black leatherette interior featuring a unique center console with additional gauges and a center armrest with a storage compartment included as part of the optional Appearance Group.  An aftermarket four-spoke MOMO steering wheel has been added and all gauges and accessories are said to be fully functional except for the radio.  A small tear is also noted in the upholstery on the driver’s seat bolster.

This 914 carries an air-cooled 2.0L flat-four engine that sends approximately 95 HP to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox. The engine is said to have been previously rebuilt, although there is no supporting documentation available. An aftermarket Abarth exhaust system has been installed along with Weber carburetors and an MSD ignition box, and the brake calipers are said to have been rebuilt within the last year.  A comprehensive collection of records is said to be included from the previous ownership and this 914 is described to be up to date on all routine maintenance.

This sale will include the original spare tire, a spare engine belt, and a clean title.  A nimble and lightweight mid-engine sports car, this 914 2.0 is a perfect choice for any air-cooled driving enthusiast, do not let this opportunity pass you by.

    @ptkacik It does stay up but I always use the bar
    I don’t know if this was ever mounted to the trunk

  • Bengt (seller) 1 monthago

    @Mach-Schnell No can’t guarantee the mileage
    I normally estimate actual mileage based on wear and tear on the interior.
    The interior is very nice so I believe the miles showed is close to actual
    It’s a very nice car and has been very reliable.

    @ptkacik Hello
    I can’t comment on potential patching of the hell hole. I find it unlikely as there is no other rust on the car, except for some light surface rust
    The right rear rim my inter, is the spare, and that has been repaired
    There are 4 perfectly fine Fuchs wheels for the car + the spare that is mounted currently
    I’m traveling and not able to take a picture of the undercarriage or suspension points.
    I’m sorry

  • Mach-Schnell 1 monthago

    Any idea of actual mileage?

  • ptkacik (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    It also looks like the trunk lid torsion bar is laying in the trunk. Will the trunk lid stay up by itself?

  • ptkacik (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    It looks like the hell hole was patch welded and painted. Can you post a picture of the right rear inner suspension pickup point? It also looks like one wheel was broken and welded back together. How does the spare wheel look? I see the spare tire is shot.

    @MCShack Hello MCSchack

    Thank you for your kind words.
    You are correct ts a very nice car with minor cosmetic blemishes.
    It is apart from some surface rust, basically rust free.
    My only major criteria when buying old Porsches
    It has been a loyal friend to me for many years!
    It does drive very well, is a five speed.
    Unfortunately I’m traveling through next Tuesday and I won’t be able to provide any additional pictures
    See my comments on the hell hole below.

  • MCShack (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Looks really good overall for nearly 50 years. Clock seems stuck at 3:10 in pics, no biggy. There are a few minor things, mostly cosmetic stuff. Love to peek under the rocker covers. Pic or two of underside of targa top to see condition would be nice, also pics of floor behind seats but I'm sure they are like floorboards shown. Hell Hole pictures are a must for some buyers along with more pics of underside including suspension. A driving video shifting through the gears and even into reverse and drive a few feet would be nice. I wish you had more info regarding engine rebuild and other work. Never thought I would like that shade of blue, but I love it on this car. GLWA

    @Manpot Hello Manpot
    The motor was rebuilt resulting in slightly higher cylinder volume. The badge says 2.1 which reflects this
    If you look at pix I believe 58 this is the area of the hell hole. As you can see this is as rust free as the rest of the car.
    I think the battery was relocated for better weight balance.
    I’ll correct the wipers!!!!

  • Manpot 1 monthago

    Very nice 914..but please park those wipers properly! It would be a great help too to see the "hellhole" under the battery with the battery removed. Overall a very nice 914..got to ask what does the badge next to the "914" on the back say?
