Car is worth way more that asking price in all the new and working parts, rust repair, structural reinforcement, new interior, and performance upgrades.
A Driving Project about 85% done that should be worth 15 -20K when buyer completes remaining project items such as worn valve guides/ engine refresh, gearbox refresh, left front fender swap, and final paint.
The hard stuff (structural repair, exterior to bare metal, etch & prime, suspension and brake restoration)is done.

Asking $10,500 with spare gearbox, uncracked dash, excellent Left front fender,
and all 914rubber parts awaiting final paint before install.
I will entertain offers starting at $8500 without any spares.

If you are considering a larger type 4 to go in this car, I have a GA case with crank, rods, and flywheel ($500), and 2.0 heads ($800) stashed away, and a pair of 15x7 fake fuchs with 205x50x15 older tires ($400) match to the front wheels on the car. These parts will only be offered to the purchaser of this car and for extra$ above asking price.

I am willing to negotiate on completing the left fender swap and left cowl gutter repair.

DETAILS:
WHEELS /SUSPENSION:
PMB five lug conversion
reproduction fuchs wheels 15x7 front and 15x8 rear
upgraded front suspension with new poly bushings, stiff front torsion bars,
front anti-roll bar (sway bar) with adjustable drop links
rebuilt rear trailing arms, new bearings, autocross stiff rear springs

BRAKES:
Upgraded front 320i brake calipers same size as 911,
PMB rebuilt 914 rear calipers.
19mm master cylinder
All new rotors, new brake flex lines
Parking brake work excellent, all new parking brake cables

BODYWORK:
Car is original color Phoenix red L32K
California car - All structural areas (Hell hole, inner longitudinal, & jack points), have been repaired, maintained, or reinforced for track or autocross.
Interior and exterior of longitudinals have "Engman" style kit sheet metal overlay
Inner firewall has new sheet metal overlay for torsional rigidity
New steel panels in right sail,
Right front fender replaced with no rust excellent part
New jack points both sides
excellent condition steel rockers
Both doors were replaced with excellent condition doors from same year non rusted.
All exterior body panels, doors, and trunk lids have been stripped to bare metal, etched, primed, and currently have an interim coat of L32K. Several bodywork projects remain to be done by new owner before paint: L fender swap and rt rear corner (behind bumper).

INTERIOR
All new rubber gaskets on doors, windows, targa, and trunks ($2000 worth of new rubber)
New interior, including door cards, console, and reupholstered OEM seats ($1500 in new interior)
Aluminum footboards behind pedals and for passenger
stereo and speakers
914 carpet floormats
Custom rearview visor mount mirror
OEM rear view mirrors both sides
Backpad and carpet delete for track look.


ENGINE:
European headers
new bored throttle body & new throttle cable
fuel tank cleaned and sealed
new stainless steel fuel lines in tunnel & engine bay
all new rubber fuel lines & filter
fuel pressure guage in engine bay
Engine pulls hard and starts immediately, good compression, engine has not recently been rebuilt, I suspect worn valve guides but runs well
Great candidate to build a 2056, a big 4 2258 cc, or swap in a Porsche 6 cylinder

GEARBOX:
5 speed manual (3rd sometimes pops out)
new Bruce Stone rebuilt and powdercoated pedal set,
all new bronze shift linkage bearings
Tangerine Racing firewall spherical shift bearing
Tangerine Racing clutch cable mount plate & new clutch cable
new speedo angle drive gear and seals
Spare sideshift gearbox comes with car

ELECTRICAL:
Optima gel battery
New Bosch Alternator
headlight units all reconditioned and working
running lights reconditioned with LED bulbs in tail, turn, and brake lights
LED bulbs in dash gauges.
Hella euro tail lenses ($400/pair)

OTHER;
rear trunk gas lifts replace torsion springs,
Rennwest heim joint trunk hinge mounts
Fiberglass front lip spoiler,
Fiberglass rear GT fender flares (Front fender flares come with car in trunk)
flat tow bar mount plate under chin spoiler - can flat tow for long trips

Project items still to do:
1. horns not working yet
2. fog lights restored and good, no power to front yet
3. Oil press idiot light inop
4. gearbox has no grinding, but sometimes pops out of third.
5. still need to swap new L front fender and repair edge of cowl by L fender
6. hidden small rust spot behind bottom of R tail light
7. right rear bumper mount needs alignment and trunk floor needs some love
8. a few new rubber seals are included, but waiting to go on after paint
9. Final Paint still needed (car is currently rattle canned Phoenix Red L32K), I recommend proper spray of 2 stage, with color sanding and clear coat.
