This 914-6 is in very nice condition with a considerable amount of time and money invested. The paint work was a high quality bare metal restoration and although done 25-years ago, it hasn’t seen much road time. It’s always been garaged.
There are some minor signs of use like a few tiny dents and some slight paint nicks, but very few blemishes. The body fitment is excellent and the steel flare installation was done correctly. The body is very dry with no signs of rust in the usual places.
The battery tray was replaced during the restoration and the “hell-hole” (below the battery tray) has no signs of rot.
The rockers and jack points were addressed during the restoration as well.
The glass is in good shape and appears to be original to the car and wearing the correct factory stampings. Even the windshield is original and further confirmation to the low miles.
This 914-6 was sold new with steel wheels. The 14” Fuchs were an option at the time. Early on, a set of factory 7×15 and 8×15 Fuchs were purchased new from Porsche. They are in decent shape with some fading of the original black paint. The lips have been lightly polished over the years, which was the look at the time. They are wearing new front tires (205/60-15) and 3-year old rear tires (215/60-15) with near full tread. They are all season tires. The current owner attempted to source Pirelli CN36 tires at the time, but they were back ordered for 6-months.
The rear engine cover panel that is metal and body colored was removed and replaced with similar mesh material to help with engine cooling.
The vinyl targa top is also in very good original condition and the seals are in decent shape.
The pop up headlight motors work properly and still have their correct and original white plastic surrounds in good shape.
The engine bay as well as the front and rear trunks are in very good shape with no signs of damage or rust. The original Karmann stamp in the rear trunk is visible and the VIN stampings/VIN plate in the front trunk are also correct and original. Although the engine was completely rebuilt only 15k-miles ago and runs properly, a few small oil leaks have developed over the last 30-years. The engine case is dry.
The transmission is original to the car and we believe was also rebuilt at the time of the motor. It was converted to a side shifter for easier operation.
The interior is largely original and in nice survivor condition. The original leatherette seats have a tear on the driver seat bottom cushion with some small tears on the center seat section that pivots to reveal storage. The original door panels are in very good original condition with no warping or other major blemishes. The original dash is also exceptionally nice with no major cracks or warping.
