Factory-finished in Sunflower Yellow over brown vinyl, this 914 is equipped with a 5-speed manual gearbox paired with a fuel-injected 1.8-liter engine. This West Coast example features black and yellow Coco floor mats, new Sony speakers, and extensive documentation. Nicely appointed and well-maintained, this 914 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California.

This 1974 example was ordered in Sunflower Yellow (L13K). Exterior features include a removable black roof panel, a chrome side mirror, a black vinyl upholstered roll bar with chrome-plated trim strips, Porsche lettering across the mid-engine ventilation grille, black bumperettes, flip-up headlights, and a single exhaust outlet. The original 15” wheels wear Solar 4XS tires dated 2017. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.

The cabin is upholstered in brown vinyl and features black and yellow Coco floormats. Equipment includes manual roll-up windows, a four-spoke steering wheel, and new Sony speakers. The seller reports all gauges and accessories to be working properly.

Powered by a mid-mounted, air-cooled, and fuel-injected 1.8-liter flat-four engine, this 914 offers up to 76 HP and 100 lb.-ft of torque at the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox. Stopping power is provided by standard four-wheel disc brakes. Inspected by top reputable San Diego Porsche Mechanics at both Völlig Autowerks and Black Forest Automotive, recent service includes a new flange seal and wiper blades.

This sale will include a clean title, owner's manuals, a toolkit, a spare tire, a sales brochure, a clean title, and extensive service records.

The seller would like you to know: "I've owned many Porsches over the years including 87' factory slant-nose 911 Turbo, 911SC, Boxster, etc. Every configuration- rear, mid, and front engine. This is an efficient & tight 914. Drives like the German wind-up toy, it was meant to be. I've had more compliments on this 914 than my, current, 17k mile 911 C4s, or 67k mile 968. This car is an extraordinary find. She's a beaut! Good will hunting & all the best to you, and yours. Thank you for your consideration."

    Msandford74 - I did not post running videos. The car runs great. If you want, I can try to get one today or tomorrow, but I think auction ends, soon.

  • msandford74 (registered bidder) 1 yearago

    Hi, maybe I missed it. Is there video posted of the car running, driving and going thru the gears? I apologize if they are posted.

    KD914 et-al: I believe the painting is original type, and clear-coated. Major refurbishing completed by Autohaus Bayern, Automobile Atlanta, and St. Helens Auto Body. I have reams of invoices & receipts. Also, have the original purchase from Gleaves Porsche dealership. During this millennium alone between $15k to $20k (or more) of restoration + upgrading, e.g. fittings, brakes, Bluetoooth USB, etc. This is a beautiful well maintained 914 example of restoration done by some of the best mechanical outfits on the planets. I am rifling through more historical data, and I will post more photos, soon. Thank you again for reaching out in earnest interest.

  • KD914 (registered bidder) 1 yearago

    @Betta17 Thanks so much for the additional info and excellent photos. Do you happen to know if it was repainted in an original type, single-stage paint, or if it’s a two-stage paint? Thanks again!

    Hi KD914 - I will take more photos of floor, today. I will post them. New paint overall, a beautiful job. I did not supervise it. That said there are no dings, or blemishes. I purchased this 914 from a dealer's collection. Plus, Vollig Autowerks ran PTG test and there were no major variations on the meter readings. It went from showroom floor to my garage, ever since - driven in sunny S. California, never in the rain. Thank you for your consideration.

  • KD914 (registered bidder) 1 year, 1 monthago

    A tidy presented 914. Can you remark on how much, if any original paint is still on the car? And if basically all new paint, could you provide info re the repaint. Also, can you provide additional photos of the existing brown carpeting w/o the coco mats to show the overall extended of the UV fading. Thanks so much. GLWTA. It shows well.

  • Betta17 (seller) 1 year, 1 monthago

    Achtung, meine Porsche-Fans: Mirror finish, clean, tight, & well-preserved original 914. Lmk if you can find a better one. Danke for your consideration. All the Best, Your fellow Porsche enthusiast.
