Okay I haven't been this tempted in along time. Saw a 73 2.0 car listed.
Doesn't run & has some ungodly spoiler on the rear trunk. Guy was working towards getting it painted. Called him on the phone & could hardly hear him. With me finally having my car on the road again. Feeling the bug a bit more. So I decided I'd go take a look. Here is the good

63k original miles
buying from second owner who also stored it inside
Interior is perfect with no cracks in dash, seats, door panels or backpad
SS heat exchangers
Extra pistons, jugs & heads
2 sets of webers carbs (Along with original fuel injection in a box)
No sign of any body damage & all panels, gaps look as they should
I found one tiny bit of rust below the battery tray. Best hell hole in an original car I've gotten to buy. No rust in either trunk or under the car. The rockers still have the stock rivets. I see nothing around the jackpost or below that worries me
L041 original black car
Car is complete & anything aftermarket like steering wheel. Still includes the original

Bad
Needs paint
Need to get rid of the ugly flipping wing he put on
VW offset riviera's (I will be on the lookout for a nice set of Stock 4 lug fuchs)
Motor needs head replaced. Dropped valve he said.
Tin painted yellow (IMG:style_emoticons/default/WTF.gif)
Windshield cracked
Not a hug fan of the center rear Porsche deflector. So that will go up for sale
Guy has not put it in his name. Has the signed title but no bill of sale. With it being out of state. I am waiting for him to go to the DMV tomorrow. Need to make sure I will have no problem getting it titled in my name

My plan will be to pull the drivetrain & get the motor sorted. Strip parts to get it painted. I will have the outside painted. Trunks & jams are all still good. Overall I am pretty excited for this car (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

Nice find! OG black is so hard to find, especially low mileage and two owners. Seems like a lot of people who have a conversion car also have (or want) a stock 914. If one turned up by me like that one I'd have a hard time not buying it.

Yeah this will stay a bone stock car. Not sure if I will keep it once it is finished. We'll see where the market is.

Title is being a bit of an issue. Guy never put it in his name. Original owner died but daughter had power of attorney at the time. Which has now expired. Anyway I am working with them & they have the daughters name. She is willing to help as well. I put down a deposit so just said I am fine with them holding that. With them working towards getting the title. So I will be keeping in touch but this may draw out for months rather than weeks (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

Finally picked up my newest 914. Took almost 2 months to get the title stuff squared away. Guy I got it from bought from the original owner. He had some motor issue so it hadn't been driven. My guy pulled the motor & started prepping to paint it. Added that ugly ass wing. He did something with a head & it made some noise. So he stopped & got another head. Didn't get the full story but the motor will be coming out & taken apart to check everything out. Then I'll replace what is needed & reseal it. Super happy with this car. I plan to have it apart & off for paint in the next month.

I'm just curious - how does one verify the odometer reading is actually original miles? without another digit on the odometer, there's no way to tell if the mileage has rolled over at least once. you have all the documentation from when the car was brand new?

Nice (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) I hope you keep the patina as it is; just clear coat it. It will be a real head turner.... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Man those are some STRAIGHT bumpers for an OG car. You might be surprised at how well the paint buffs out...

There is no true way I suppose. Just going by some service records. Car sat for close to 20 years without being driven. In a garage thankfully. I have some of the original owners paperwork & mileage from when he sold it. Guy I got it from never put the title in his name. With the motor issue he didn't get to drive it much. Think it has maybe 200 miles on it over when he bought it.

Does it matter that the title isn’t in the sellers name? As long as there isn’t someone else’s name as a buyer, I’ve never had a problem registering a car in my name. I know all states are different but ...

Nice find Jamie! Great bumper tops too. That wing is no uglier than the exhaust. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)
