The 914 is for sale.

The 914 is for sale.

I have decided to find a new caretaker for my Porsche 914.
In this post I will try to describe it as accuratly as possible.

The asking price is set at 350 000 swedish crowns or for international buyers around 35.000 € depending on the exchange rate.

Inital contact via PM on facebook or 914world or whereever you have gotten here from or on email: pcs12234 @ gmail dot com
You can also comment on this post with your contact details and I will reply to you.

Please read to the end to see what is included in the sale apart from the car itself.

Basic facts: Its a 1974 Porsche 914 2.0. Originally sold in San Jose California. The original tach read about 86000 miles. If that is correct or not I dont know and for me it doesnt matter because of the extensive restoration. The odometer was zeroed with the new engine and currently sits about 5200 km.
I imported the car in 2013 and have been restoring and modifying it since then. If you look the all the old posts here you can see alot of the work done.
Almost everything is either restored or replaced with new parts.

Exterior: The paint colour is Porsche Pure White from the 2010 model year. The Martini stripes is layered vinyl that I bought ready made from the UK. Martini logo stickers will be included with the sale. The paint is ok but not concourse level, it has gotten a few stonechips and such since new.

  1. Fantastic car
    Wold never be registered in Denmark i suppose (unless very expensive)
    I have a 1973 1,7 rust free but in need of quite many upgrades. I am in investigation prosess for engine rebuild. Thinking 2056 but how does you 2270 drive on road?
    If I may ask: how much ca. did you pau GBOT for the engine?
    I was clnsidering either have them build of build myself but have GBOT do the heads and check the case. Can you recommend GBOT?

    1. Thank you, the 2270 drives fine on the road. No issues there. If I remember correctly the engine was about 65-70k DKK.
      I will send you an email with some info.
