This is a 1976 Porsche 914 that has a 1981 Porsche 3.0L SC engine. Almost all work done to the car has been done by myself (except wrap, bodywork, and specialty rebuilt parts). I have owned the car since 2009. In 2010 I purchased a project 911 to swap the engine to my 914. After preparing the engine and collecting parts the swap was done in the summer of 2014. I have driven this car every fall and spring when there is nice weather. Mileage of engine and car is unknown. Annual driven estimates are 2-4 thousand miles. Engine pulls hard and is a true blast to drive in this tiny car. Previous owners gutted the car for autocross – this is a lightweight 914 with no radio, no A/C, no heat, no electronics, and no comforts. Interior is bed liner – no carpet. I do one or two autocrosses a year. No accidents under my ownership. The car has never been towed home. I also own a 2000 Boxster S that I work on myself as well.


Slight rust issues were fixed by my body guy before being wrapped (paint underneath is faded red). Previous rust issues were already fixed before my purchase (battery hellhole). Racing seats need to be recovered or replaced – I have passenger seat but is not in car. The oil tank oil filter mount was not drilled center so I am using a remote oil mount. This allows for extra oil temp sensors that are featured in the center console and for the remote fan. Engine leaks like any classic Porsche engine as does the oil tank through a fitting or mount I apparently didn’t seal well enough when installed. Speedometer is not accurate – bounces around despite new cable. Carburetors run great however the shaft bushings need to be replaced. Wipers move slow but good enough for Texas inspection.

Price is firm. I do not need to sell and very much enjoy this car. Please note that most pictures in below photo albums are few years old. Both trunks are now painted and car is fully wrapped. K&N air cleaners are now matching. Engine lid and front/rear valences are available for install.
