For Sale: 1974 Porsche 914 in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

The perfect balance and plenty of fun factor is how these 914 2.0 liters were advertised by Porsche. And that statement still holds true today. The 914 offered three 4 cylinder engine options; the 1.7 and 1.8 liter motors were inexpensive enough to attract the budget buyer, the that want to spend just a little more and have a car that was fun to drive in all gears optioned for the 2.0 liter. It had more total horsepower and more low end power in all gears, and it was also paired with a 5 speed gearbox giving it the ability to get out of the hole quick and achieve healthy triple digit top end.

The 1974 Porsche 914 2.0 liter offered here is a highly original example that sports an older repaint in its original factory color, code L 64 K Zambezi Green. The car is powered by its 2.0 liter engine (engine number GA014164), 5 speed gear box and rear wheel drive. The motor is fed by dual Weber carbs and managed by MSD ignition.

The interior is two tone tan / charcoal and appears to be all original. It does show some expected wear and the original dash pad is a little stressed. The gauges are the original VDO and remain in very good original condition.
The engine area is clean and tidy. The dreaded "Hell Hole" located under the battery tray is clean and solid. The exterior Zambezi green paint lays flat and deep and glossy. It is an older repaint and shows some minor chips, scuffs etc.

In April of 2008 and at 46116 miles, the engine was removed and was completely rebuilt at a cost of over $10,000 dollars. Since the car has remained in the same owner until our recent acquisition. The car starts with ease and pulls strong in all gears. The suspension and steering are tight, and the brakes stop strong and straight. Other highlights include: Original steering wheel, full size spare wheel and tire, upgraded radio.

The Porsche market continues to surge around the world, with that, the Porsche 914's have fallen into favor among driver enthusiasts. Their handling capabilities rival anything that is on the road today. The feel and driver feedback is direct creating a car and driver connection that cannot be duplicated in todays vehicles. Documentation includes the receipts of the engine rebuild and some other service history.
