Description for Porsche 914 1970


1970 Original Porsche 914-6 Race Car Engine Needs to be Repaired

I am pleased to offer this 1970 Porsche 914-6 race car. The car was born as an actual 914-6 (see pictured COA in picture section). Currently, the non-original engine is disassembled and ready to be rebuilt. Car comes with a valid and clear title but it is not street legal in it’s current state. VIN # is 9140432139.

See balance of description and history below:

History according to the Current Owner:

This 914 started life as an original 914-6. In 1987, the car was purchased by the previous owner and he proceeded to add 7” front flairs and 9” rear flares. Vehicle was stripped down to bare metal. 914 race car spot welds were added to give the chassis additional strength. A full welded roll cage was installed. The car was painted Guards Red inside and out. Over many years of racing, Aircooled Classics in Knoxville, Tenn., continued to tune and modify the car. In November of 2000, a Quafle ATB differential was added to vehicle. Adjustable rear coils were installed. The car was raced until mid 2007 according to PCA race logbooks. That is when the engine suffered a main bearing failure. We were told that the engine was immediately shut down and towed into pits. Engine was disassembled and inspected. The engine is a dual plug setup with crank sensor ignition and dual-coils, still attached to car. The crankshaft will need to be repaired. Everything else looks good. The previous owner spared no expense while racing the car. Sadly, the owner died during the rebuild process. Car was bought as it sits. Intentions were to put the car back together and go racing. Too many projects and not enough time. A great photo album and receipts are included with the car.
