For sale is a 1972 Porsche 914. The vehicle was repowered 4 years ago with all drivetrain (engine and transmission) from a 1974 Porsche 914.
I purchased it off the 3rd owner who has owned it and garage kept it since 1991. He has conducted all of the maintenance on it himself and, conducted the engine/tranny swap on it himself as well. He did not have any maintenance records for the vehicle — however appeared to be a very knowledgeable, trustworthy Porsche enthusiast/PCA member. The car’s condition speaks for that as well. The engine rebuild occurred prior to its swap in 4 years ago and was quite extensive inclusive replacement of pistons, re-machining of all typical internals, replacement of all gaskets, etc. — top/bottom end. There has been 10K miles put on it after the rebuild. The transmisssion was NOT rebuild. However, shifts great and did have the fluid changed in it. Considering it’s the 1974 — it also has less slop than the 1972 original.
The car rides fairly tight. I have had it up to 80mph and it’s fairly solid. Brakes well and has the 1974 all wheel brake disk set up as well. The lines have been recently replaced along with the master cylinder — which I am quite certain is a 911 unit.
The engine is fitted with SSI’s and the fan/defrost works quite well. The lights all work and the car is in excellent driving condition — really could be suitable as a daily. The window regulators work, seat adjustments work, latches and handles all work. Only items I have noticed that do not seem to operate are the radio (car comes with a spare one) and the left turn signal which appears to just latch and not blink. Both are a very easy fix. The car also does have a Monza exhaust which sounds quite good.
