Description for Porsche 914 1974

One of the most, f not the most desirable model of Porsche's 914, his is an 2.0 liter LE model built byPorsche in 1974to celebrate their Can Am racing success.Produced in very limited numbers the LE cars were offered in either Ivory (L80E) known as "Popsicle" or as in this case Black (LO41) "Bumblebee." Solid body colors with contrasting negative Porsche stripes and painted alloy wheels, umpers and rocker panels, nly 1000 of these cars were built, 00 of each color, nd these limited run cars were produced over a short period of time, ome three months from mid February to late April of 1974 and fall within VIN range 4742914348 to 4742916764 This 914 is VIN 4742915094 was produced in March 1974 and ticks all of the boxes for the LE model, aint code LO41, o sail panel trim (no holes there ever either) correct center console and gauges, he front spoiler is wrong but the straps from the original are still attached to the front suspension mounts.
All 5 of the correct factory wheels are present as is the toolkit and still in its black plastic bag. The jack is there and secured by the proper straps in the rear compartment. Front and rear sway bars are there, lso the signature light gray headlight covers, lack plastic model badges and windshield washer nozzles. The windows are tinted in blue
The body of the 914 is absolutely straight and exhibits no rust or accident damage, ooking underneath there is no sign of repair anywhere, he floors are finished in the original factory paint and underseal, hey will even polish to a shine. The battery tray is excellent and there is no sign of corrosion in the feared "Hell Hole" beneath. Doors fit properly, lunk shut and have the proper gaps. Although the previous owner painted the car in white luckily it wasn't a thorough job, he inside of the front and rear trunks are still factory black, s are the undersides of both lids, hich should make it a pretty straight forward job to return it to its factory color scheme, e also chromed the original painted bumpers as you can see, robably easier to get some painted ones.
The motor has been completely rebuilt by the previous owner to 2.1 liter specs and it has certainly given the car more pep, ew pistons and barrels as well as rebuilt heads and new bearings, he original injection is retained and works extremely well, t starts easily and makes no smoke, he gearbox shift through the gate without issue. Mileage reads 40k but is unknown
