On Father’s Day in 2011 I bought this 1972 Porsche 914 1.7. A clean rust free chassis with Texas history but no motor or transmission in it. The original engine had dropped a valve and the owner pulled the drive train to fix it but never got around to it. I bought 2.0 liter car that was a complete basket case with no title and proceeded to do what it took to get the 2.0 swap done. This car fires right up with proper operating cold start valve and drives down the road the way it should. The side shift transmission has worn first and second gear syncros but when the idle is down, it shifts just fine. The numbers matching engine block comes with the car.
Asking $9,500.
Here are the details, there are more pictures to be found by looking up my blog Groosh's Garage.
There is a non-refundable $1000 security deposit. So please make sure you have the funds before moving forward. Full payment due in 7 days.
Please contact me with any questions. Shipping is up to the buyer. I will help get it loaded. Car is located in Dexter, Michigan. I can safely store it for two weeks to allow for pickup if paid in full.
Payment through bank wire transfer US funds. Car will be released once funds are cleared and available at my bank.
Thanks very much, Paul Grusche
