Finished in Burgundy with a Black interior. The body is very
straight with excellent gaps and panel fit. According to the
previous owner, this 914-6 was subjected to a bare metal respray.
The 914-6 was totally disassembled and the body was completely
stripped down to steel. It was repainted in a beautiful shade of
Burgundy metallic which is in exceptional condition. The interior
is very nice with a 914 Scheel-type driver's sport seat, VDO

Powered by a period-correct 914-6 2.0-liter engine (No. 6405458)
which was recently rebuilt in August of 2017 to 2.7-liter
specifications by Charlies Foreign Car Service in Encinitas,
California. The engine was completely disassembled and the engine
case and crank were sent out to the machine shop. The crankshaft
was inspected and was found to be in great condition as well as the
engine case. The cylinder heads were sent out to Motorworks in San
Diego to be rebuilt. The engine was then reassembled using all new
components including new pistons and cylinders, timing chain,
thermostat, oil pump, chain tensioner update, main bearing, and
much more, totaling $26,909. The engine is very smooth with a ton
of power and is very impressive to drive compared to a normal 914-6
with only 110hp. The 5-speed 901 manual dogleg transmission is very
smooth both up and downshifting and the four-wheel disc braking
system stops the car straight.
According to the Certificate of Authenticity, this 914-6 came from
the factory with USA equipment, light metal wheels, fog lights, and
a Blaupunkt 'Frankfurt' Radio. Complete with Porsche Certificate of
Authenticity, original owner's manual, jack, and a spare tire. This
is an excellent opportunity to acquire an outstanding 914-6 that
drives amazing in a great color combination.
Porsche's 914-6 featured a carbureted 110 bhp, 2.0 L flat-6 engine
from the 1969 911T, which was placed in front of a version of the
1969 911's "901" gearbox configured for a mid-engine sports car.
Karmann manufactured the rolling chassis at their plant, completing
Volkswagen production in-house or delivering versions to Porsche
for their final assembly. The 914-6 models used lower gear ratios
and high brake gearing in order to try to overcome the greater
weight of the six-cylinder engine along with higher power output.
They also featured five-lug wheels and ignition on the left side of
the steering wheel. Suspension and handling were otherwise mostly
