Detail By Owner
Outstanding 1974 Porsche 914 targa convertible in coveted Ravenna Green color with brown-and-black interior and center console. Purchased from original California owner nine years ago. Meticulously maintained since new–regularly serviced by expert Porsche technicians. Never seen snow. Extremely clean in and out; no rust in front and rear trunks, minor surface rust on battery tray. Floor pans are solid and rust-free. Overall, car is a head-turner with a manual six-speed transmission that shifts dutifully and with a strong, original engine that performs well. Original leather interior is in excellent condition featuring appropriate period patina. Replaced worn carpeting with fresh OEM-type. Odometer read 58,000 miles when I purchased the car. Current mileage is only 60,740. Replaced fuel pump two years ago. Added short-shift kit, chrome wheel rings, and CD player with AM/FM radio. Replaced speakers with upgraded type, but maintained original baffles, which are in great shape. Removable targa top also is in great shape with appropriate period patina. New battery, almost-new tires with lots of tread. You’ll note in the photos that the car has chrome bumpers, an option offered by Porsche in ’74. As for imperfections, the rear trunk lid has a small blemish, hardly visible even when close up. Some minor surface rust in one small spot on passenger-side door jam and in one localized area on driver-side rocker panel. A couple other minor flaws exist, but other than that, the car is exceptionally clean. This terrific 914 should be considered a very high-end driver that could be a show car with minor work and investment. Comes with shop manual and Covercraft car cover.
