This 1973 Porsche 914 is said to have been the subject of a complete restoration carried out approximately 10 years ago including a refinish in Rally Yellow. Equipped with an upgraded 2.4L engine paired with a 5-speed manual transaxle, this 1973 example is now being offered for auction by its reported third owner out of New Hampshire.
This 914 is said to have been previously refinished in Rally Yellow contrasted by a black Targa top and chrome lower bumper trim. It has been customized with Porsche script along the rocker panels and rides on 15” alloy wheels dressed in Goodyear VR60 tires from 2013 that are reported to have 90% tread remaining. The seller notes some paint imperfections including signs of touch-up on the middle of the driver-side door, a larger area on the passenger-side rear fender, and some clear coat bubbling on the rear trunk closer to the passenger-side. A full paint correction and exterior detailing are said to have been carried out in preparation for sale along with refinishing of all four wheels within the last month.
The cabin is appointed with black vinyl upholstery as well as new matching carpets and door panels. Equipment includes a glovebox, manual window rollers, a four-spoke steering wheel, and an aftermarket stereo. The seller states a plastic dashboard cover has been fitted and the condition of the original dashboard beneath is unknown.
Power comes from an air-cooled 2.4-liter stroker flat-four engine that sends power to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transaxle. The seller adds that the fuel injection system was removed and replaced with dual Weber 40 carburetors. Noteworthy service items are said to include fluids changed and an oil change within the last month along with an emergency brake adjustment, a new fuel filter, several new fuel lines, and draining of the fuel system.
This sale will include a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “Thanks for checking out my auction. I picked this car up a few months ago. I have owned many 914's and this is one of the best driving ones yet. Just a great original 914.”
