The example on offer here, chassis #9140432050, is a three-owner example, starting its motoring in Hermosa Beach, California after being delivered to Vasek Polak, one of the first exclusive Porsche dealerships in the United States. From there it went through only one other home before arriving with its current owner who 914/6. A full engine rebuild was carried out on the car through a specialty shop called RM Motorsports, in Wixom, MI, and has extensive paperwork to commensurate the job.
With both companies in need of a new car, the timing could not have been better and so, the 914 was born. It was a mid-engine design, two-seater, with a targa top. Originally, it was agreed that Porsche would produce a 6 cylinder version of the 914, while Volkswagen produced one with a 4 cylinder.
It has been repainted only one time since. A keen eye will note that all of the carpets throughout the cabin are the correct for the 1970 model year along with the Porsche branded mat on the driver side. All new brakes and upgraded fuel lines from plastic to stainless steel to increase longevity connected to the original fuel pump.
