I am going down to see the car this weekend; I can't wait to see it in person.
Cheers,
Michael

It is going to be an original '71 914-6 color, but not the original gold metallic it left the factory in. Neither my or I can stomach the gold. Sorry to the purists who feel that ruins the car. BTW, Porsche only made 4 '71 Sixes in gold metallic.

4 is a pretty low number!

Irish Green is my favorite 914 color. Mine is Light Ivory. I like it.. although next to newer whites it just looks a little "dirty".

So Tangerine? Yellow? Orange? A "6" only color?

Impressive panel fit, looks like you found a place that wants it to be perfect. Looking forward to see it out of the booth.

This is my 3rd 914-6; the first two were '70's. The first was Signal Orange, the second was Irish Green. When I bought my '71, it had already been painted black, back when it was still new by the 1st owner. I am the 3rd owner. As rare as Gold is, I just am not a fan. It could have come any other factory color and I would have kept it that color, but not Gold. Sorry, not hating, just not our thing.
