Default For Sale: 1973 914 1.7

For Sale: my 1973 Porsche 914 with the original 1.7 liter engine and trans (have Porsche CoA), 66.8K original miles. Original dash, with no cracks. Orginal interior and carpets. No rust, not even the hellhole. It even has the original D-Jet electronic fuel injection system.

I've had the car for over 4 years, and it is easily the most fun-per-horsepower car I've ever owned. It is in very good condition and is an excellent driving car -- we drove it to Helen, GA and back (10 hours each way) in 2017 for Okteenerfest (missed last year only because of schedule conflicts). Plus, it is an absolute hoot to autocross, and it throttle-steers beautifully!

In the time I've owned it, I have performed or installed:
  • Complete fuel system overhaul -- new stainless steel fuel lines, new fuel hoses, new fuel injectors, new fuel pressure regulator, new fuel pump, added inline fuel pressure gauge.
  • Complete brake overhaul -- new 17mm master cylinder, new hoses and hard lines, new pads and rotors, calipers and bias valve rebuilt by PMB Performance.
  • New 123Ignition electronic distributor, new coil, new plugs, new wires.
  • New clutch, pressure plate and throwout bearing.
  • New Optima battery, new voltage regulator, rebuilt relay panel.
  • New Bilstein shock/struts, new turbo tie rods, new front suspension rubber bushings.
  • Installed factory sway bars, front and rear. All steel parts media blasted and powder coated, new bushings.
  • New RetroSound radio and speakers, in the stock location and speaker housings. Adds bluetooth and ipod input while still looking like an original radio.
  • Windshield washer system upgraded to electric pump, with an electric switch added to the original wiper controls (replacing original valve).
  • Repaired cracked original trunk lid mounts and installed new battery tray.
  • Repaired heating system, installed stainless heat exchangers, new heat valves, cable and hoses.
  • New Dansk muffler.
  • 5 new tires installed 4 years ago (including spare).
  • SpokeWerks LED front & rear turn signal lights and brake lights. LED side marker and reverse lights. GE NightHawk LED headlights.
  • New shift linkage bushings. New first gear synchro.
  • New Tangering Racing oil pressure relief valve.
  • New Porsche axles and CV joints (bought new from Porsche dealer, not aftermarket and not rebuilt).

I have attached some pics below. However, more pics are available here: https://billc.smugmug.com/1973-914-Gallery/

I am selling only because we have two kids in college this year, and tuition will exceed our savings and income. Since family is top priority, the car (sadly for me) needs to find a new home. Asking $19,500 OBO.
