1970 Porsche 914-6

• VIN 9140431XXX
• Completed June 1, 1970
• Matching engine

According to the Porsche Certificate, this 914-6 was delivered to Competition Motors in Culver City, California. The 914-6 was delivered on June 1, 1970, in Canary Yellow (2910) with Black leatherette and a basketweave interior. Options include Finland equipment, leather-covered steering wheel, fog lights, and forged Fuch alloy 5.5" x 14" wheels. Finished in its factory color combination with excellent gaps and panel fit. The paintwork is in pristine condition with original glass, replacement windshield and the chrome bumpers are in excellent condition. The Fuch alloy wheels have been professionally refinished with new Vredestein Sprint Classic 185 HR 14 tires. The original interior is in excellent condition with only one small hairline crack in the original dash.

In late 2020, European Collectibles purchased this 914-6; it was very straight and rust-free. The driveline was removed, and a full repaint was performed to the original color Canary Yellow. After the paintwork was completed, the body was reassembled using the original hardware and factory trim.

Mechanically, the top-end of the engine was rebuilt, the flywheel was resurfaced, a new clutch was installed, the shifter bushings were replaced, and the entire braking system was refreshed. This improved braking system included rebuilt brake calipers, brake pads, brake hoses, and a master cylinder. The transmission was rebuilt including new synchro rings, 1st, and reverse shift sleeves, 1st gear teeth, 2nd, and 3rd operating sleeve, along with new gaskets and seals. New heat exchangers and a new Dansk exhaust were also installed. The undercarriage is all original and was Ice Blasted including the wheel wells and is truly in amazing condition. The entire suspension was stripped to steel, repainted, and selective hardware was CAD plated. The end result is an excellent running and driving 914-6 that has been cosmetically and mechanically restored to as it was when it left the Porsche factory.

Powered by its matching number 2.0-liter Flat Six engine with a 5-speed manual dogleg transmission. It drives amazing with plenty of power, smooth shifting transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes. Complete with a Certificate of Authenticity, spare tire, and toolkit. The 914-6 is becoming is limited to find and few of them are as well sorted and finished to this level.

History
The 914-6 was produced between 1970 to 1972 and utilized a carbureted version of Porsche's six-cylinder engine. The suspension was upgraded to better accommodate the increased output of 110 hp. Porsche also produced 32 factory-built, race-prepped versions of the 914-6 GT. Another 455 914-6s were either ordered with the "Competition Option Group" GT package or were upfitted with a factory kit.
