Hi
FS: is a 1970 rusty roller, Asking $700 OBO.
The photos tell the tale- this car has been molested, not all by me.
The car last ran when it was parked in a yard about 11 years ago. The engine has oil, plugs don't look too bad, and engine looks complete. Most of the wiring is damaged, and battery well is rusted out. Transmission condition is unknown, may not be original because it came with a second tranny.
The car was in an accident, T-boned the drivers door, which was replaced.
Overall, the body has some useful parts, and complete suspension, steering, and brakes. The various colors of paint in the photos are a "patena" of 3 or 4 coats of paint that were each done poorly.
The driver's fenders and the trunk were cut out for another car. The passenger's door and rear fender are ok, aside from rusty spots. The front and rear panels are ok. The frunk floor is in good shape, not much rust. The fuel tank is in good shape. The hood is ok, just weathered. Front and rear compartments have less rust than cockpit. The cockpit floor and dash are almost disintegrated by rust. The glass is good except for a pit in the windshield.
There are more parts in boxes: headlights, light fixtures, some latches, etc, I will include with the car.
Please ask any questions or for more photos if you are interested.
I will deliver within a few hundred miles for a negotiable fee.

Forgot to add that there are tires and rims so that it rolls.
It steers.
There are no brakes.
Thanks for asking ~

Thank you for the information, I googled it and I got similar numbers from Wikipedia. Going by the numbers on the “world” this would be a low production car first year in manufacturing. That should be more desirable for somebody, I hate to see another 1970 vehicle go. If you think about the 911 ‘s, 356 ’s any first your vehicle is now hitting higher numbers..!

Doesn't look that rusty. Post more pictures of the battery tray area and jack points, interior floor area.

Yes, it is harsh to see it get cut up. It is here if someone wants to get serious. It is too much for me.

Yeah, it is harsh to continue what was started before I got it.
Take it away, someone...

More background...
I don't know a lot about the guts of a 914. So I took on this car to learn some things (reverse engineering). My intent was passionate to get it running again, but as I got deeper into the car, the problems got a lot deeper, and I don;t have deep pockets. I have a nice '75 1.8L that is the inspiration for this odyssey with the '70 1.7L.

And so... as I looked closer at this '70...
Some of the body welds appear to be "stretched". The engine seems slightly skewed compared to the engine compartment. Also there are some unusual vertical shims between the body and the trailing arms. And there is an extra tranny.
I surmise from this evidence that the body was damaged seriously in the accident, getting hit on driver's door seems to have "bent" the car body around the impact, and the engine and tranny got tweaked, perhaps tranny damage after running it while tweaked.

The rusted out cockpit and dash is because the roof and windows were leaking and filling the car with water. The rest of the car is not that corroded. The salvage man I got it from was driving it around town 11 or 12 years ago. I knew him then, and he did not want to sell it then. And so it sat in his yard getting rusty. He is now in his 90s, and so I got it with the title, but he could not find the keys. He has a few hundred cars in his yard.

And so, to cut, or not to cut?

I too believe over the horizon a 1970 will become a sought after model.
I'm working on one right now.

PM me your address.

Those sound like alignment shims. If it has a few of them, that would be normal.

Pezz, while you still have it, try to get a photo of the paint badge on the left door hinge post; upper #is the Karmann chassis #, and the lower one is the paint code. Any engine & transmission # would also be useful. We can add this car and you 1.8 to the database we have.

Hello Dave,

Appreciate your message and your efforts to make 914World function.
I found how to input my VIN into the World database. My '75 1.8L has a COA for VIN# 4702903500. Scarlet (Mars) Red H3 on the COA. Maybe you can check to see if I did it correctly. The paint code H3 was not listed on 914World, or I did not find it, so I chose the name. I can recover the engine/trans numbers, which I sent in, but are not on the COA (surprised me).

Photo of the door badge on the 1970 is below. Color L96D is Silver Metallic..Silver Poly... hardly visible, but it is there.
I'm rather disappointed that I could not do more with this car. I wanted to save it, but don't have the resources. A builder in Portland is interested in it; so it may have a life, or at least is a transplant donor.

Thank you,
Pezz
