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.

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.
