One (1) owner finished in Light Ivory with a Black interior. The original purchase invoice notates the optional equipment as a Blaupunkt AM/FM Radio and vitalizing anti-rust treatment which totaled to a suggested retail price of $7,224.50. On August 24, 1973, the first owner purchased this 914 from Willowdale Volkswagen Inc. in Ontario, Canada. He kept his 914 in excellent condition, never exposed it to harsh weather conditions, and primarily took it out on sunny days. Routine maintenance was performed every year at authorized Porsche dealerships until the early 2000's when he moved from Canada to Southern California for work. Residing in Orange County, California he came across a local shop in Costa Mesa, California where he continued to service the vehicle until 2021. The most recent service was completed on March 23, 2021, at 57,525 miles. Full service included: new oil filter, valve adjustment, valve cover gaskets, spark plugs, rotor, distributor cap, air filter, gear oil, and fuel injection cleaner. This 914 is an extremely dry 914 with nice paintwork, gaps, and panel fit. The exterior trim is in great condition along with the Targa top. The interior is very nice and mostly original, with the seats being recently reupholstered.

Mechanically powered by a 2.0-Liter flat-four that runs very strong with a manual 5-speed transmission. Equipped with four factory Mahle alloy wheels and a Panasonic radio. Complete with jack, spare tire, original maintenance booklet, and owner's manual. An excellent opportunity to acquire a very well maintained 914 with 48 years of service history from the day it was sold.

History
The Porsche 914 was a joint development between Porsche and Volkswagen and was the new Porsche entry-level model as of the model year 1970. The two-seater, also known as the "VW Porsche", was a mid-engine Sports Car. Striking design features included the very long wheelbase for the vehicle length, short overhangs, the removable roof center panel made from glass-fiber-reinforced plastic as well as the wide safety bar. The 914 also featured pop-up headlights. At the time of its launch, the 914 was available with two engines. 914: 1.7-liter flat-four engine with 80 hp from Volkswagen.914/6: 2.0-liter flat-six engine with 110 hp from the Porsche 911 T. These were followed by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 100 hp based on the 1.7-liter engine in the model year 1973 and a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with 85 hp in the model year 1974.
