Porsche needed to replace their aging 912 model with a more nimble, less-expensive and fresh car to keep up with the competition and also to attract more buyers to the dealers. In 1969 the 914 rolled out of factory as a joint effort with VW and produced 1,574 to the market. Only available for the first 3yrs as a 1.7L or the 2.0L 6cyl engine setup. The car was well perceived by the public but they wanted more affordable power, so the 1.8L and 2.0L 4cyl setup was added in 1972-73. The 1.8L was only available from '73-'75 with only 17,773 produced with this setup and only 2,455 in 1975.

This stunning 914 1.8L is quite impressive and is painted in Malaga Red which from our research was only offered one year and exclusive to the 914. This tidy car was produced in October of 1974 and was sold new out of Holbert's Porsche in Warrington PA on 12-21-74 to Mr. William Edwards Jr. Vehicle was optioned with dealer installed options of alloy wheels, driving lights, body undercoating, and Pioneer AM/FM stereo giving it a base price of $6,358 and a delivered price of $7060.00 supported by the original MSRP and sales order that comes along with the car. According to the maintenance booklet the car remained in his care and serviced at the delivering dealer up to June of '76. Then the stamps show service in Arkansas, California and Colorado. Vehicle was obtained by us from a PCA member in Colorado that owned the car since 2010. In 2007 the car was brought to Eurosport Ltd in Englewood CO to have vehicle serviced. At this time the engine was rebuilt along with the following; valve adjustment, rebuilt heads, new valve guides, rebuilt Weber carbs, replaced fuel lines, new throttle cable, adjusted brakes, bleed and fill brake fluid, adjusted front wheel bearings, fresh transmission fluid, pushrod tube, rotor and points, spark plugs, fuel filter, battery, V- belt, intake gaskets, and fresh fluids. The car was sold at this point and logged about 11k miles since the rebuild with some additional service and routine maintenance.

Vehicle is a joy to drive and look at as the color is very unique and stands out from the crowd. Vehicle is in great shape with clean paint, excellent interior and tidy engine compartment. All lights function properly along with hazards, blinkers, fog lights and hideaway headlights. Wipers work nicely, heat fan function properly and even the cigarette lighter works and radio tunes into the stations nicely. Vehicle has a newer carpet set installed and there is no evidence of rust in the “hell hole” or longitudes. The car has been updated from fuel injection to twin Weber Cars and also a Monza dual exhaust that sings when going down the road. This is a great investment and will continue to increase in value. Vehicle comes with two keys, owner's manual, service booklet, several maintenance receipts, radio booklet, original MSRP and sales order when new.
