1971 Porsche 914, 1.7L

This is a 1971 Porsche 914 with updated 1.7 liter engine.

This is my "airport car. It is my toy for getting lunch, running parts, and goofing off. It is kept inside my hangar. Though the heater is totally intact, it is never driven in Michigan winters.

I repainted this in 2010 as a driver. I cannot park a show car in public without people having to "touch" it. As a driver, I an OK if they do.

Tailshift transmission shifts like a tailshift transmission. New bushings only do so much with that linkage./p>

Engine overhaul - 2016 - for low maintenance

(stayed with original 1.7L engine. Rebuilt and updated for low maintenance, domed pistons & cylinders, new rings, honed c ylinders, hydraulic cam and lifters, heads rebuilt, new throwout bearing, clutch assy, new bearings, gaskets & seals.

Weber progressive 2-barrel carburator (easy start, strong running, easy tune)

It runs well that most everyone that drives it puts their foot in the gas. It makes for spirited driving and makes all the right noises when driving hard.

It is a "girl magnet". (but not for me.) They the girls the car, not the driver. (Your success may vary.).

Body is solid, including [hell hole] and battery tray.

Heater system is fully functional. Still, it is never driven in winter. It is nice in autumn evenings.

Here we are, approaching June, 2018. It is still a sweet driving car, bringing smiles and making noise.

The car could use a flasher. ... (for the turn signals) ...
