Description for Porsche 914 1974

1974 Porsche 914 factory 2.0L. Engine runs and the car drives and handles good. Took it for a 10 mile run 2 days ago to a body shop for a quotation on a restoration. I was told, $3500 for new paint, $1000 to sandblast and $40/hr to repair any rust. This is almost the identical pricing I received from another shop about a month ago. Both shops are busy and cannot work on the car for a few months and so I can't decide whether to restore or just sell and I keep changing my mind. The car runs strong once warmed up thru all 5 gears. The Brakes work pretty good. The car has 5 lug Porsche Fuchs wheels which are in reasonably good condition with very little scratches. The tires are about 2 years old and good condition and show no wear. The paint is Ok but because of all of the bubbling mostly on the rear fender on the passenger side and a little on the bottom of the passenger door and a small spot on the front passenger fender. There is one other spot on the drivers side door. There are a few small holes in the underside of the pan near the engine firewall and the front bulkhead to the front trunk which are easily fixable. The front and rear bumper were replaced at some time with the fiberglass 916 style bumpers and the mounts to them are rust free. The mileage is unknown but the title shows 33500. I have had the car for a little over 1 year and have done some small repairs including a new carburetor, getting the brakes unfrozen, new door handles,new triangle window on the drivers door and new drivers side mirror. As far as rust where the battery sits there is a little but no holes. There is a hole where the hinge to the drivers side engine bay lid attaches and both of the hinges have been rigged to work. The front and rear trunk areas are clean with no rust. Most of the electrical items work as they should. This price is a deal compared to other 914's which are listed for similar prices and don't run and aren't complete. Just added some photos of the underside and the two trunks open as well as the headlights working.
