Classic Car Overview

1970 Porsche 914 Heres how the 914 came to be, according to Classic Motorsports: In the late 60s, Porsche needed a replacement for the 911s four-cylinder cousin, the 912. At the same time, VW needed a replacement for the Karmann-Ghia that would ideally be more than just a fanciful-bodied Beetle. Perhaps over some hefeweizen and sauerkraut (these are the only things I know about Germany) Ferry Porsche and VW executive Heinz Nordhoff hammered out an agreement where their respective companies would build the car together. For consignment the joint venture between Porsche and VW in the form of a 1970 Porsche 914. This air-cooled boxer style mid-engine car has the engine of a VW and suspension of a Porsche. Styling was a mixture of square and rectangle design with some aero thrown in for giggles, and an open targa top if you wished. The hidden headlights and mid-engine design lasted until 1976. Exterior A fine rust free (rare) example of the 914 here bathed in white respray with stainless steel and black accenting throughout. Its low profile, boxy styled body has straight steel with nicely minded gaps. Hidden headlights are upfront along with some running lights in the lower bumper grille. A black fiberglass targa style removable center top is seen, and it fits between a mildly raked windscreen and a large black B pillar on top of the slightly sloping downward rear deck. The rear valance shows the round hole pipe exit, the only year to have this feature. Doors and lighting features new seals, and the wheels have been upgraded to the 1974 version with trim rings. This boxy little sports car is nicely presenting. Interior Simple black vinyl covered doors with an inset actuating handle greet us prior to stepping inside. Once there we sit in German styled high back bucket seats which are a fairly flat design and incorporate tuck and roll vinyl inserts in black. These buckets sit in a sea of black carpeting with coco woven floor mats on top. The original dash with new covers is sitting in front awaiting its driver to get up and go! There is a period correct radio within this original dash, and we can also note the passenger footrest option installed. All black and all nicely presenting. Drivetrain Just behind the passengers, for even weight distribution, sits an air cooled numbers matching 1.7 liter 4-cylinder engine topped with dual 1-barrel carburetors. A 5-speed manual transmission with a new clutch disc pressure plate and throw out bearing is on back and a 4.429 final drive is formulating the rear axle. This engine was completely rebuilt by a Lancaster County certified Porsche tech which included pistons, cylinders, machined heads, valves, valve guides seals and gaskets. Now it runs like a Swiss watch. Undercarriage Structurally sound, the consigner states the fuel tank has been etched, coated and has new internal filter and hoses. Brake pads were resurfaced, and the calipers were rebuilt. New muffler and chrome exhaust tips and excellent heat exchangers with great heat and defrost capabilities. It has new tires. Disc brakes are upfront, and matching discs for the rear with independent suspension upfront and independent MacPherson struts on back. Drive-Ability A quick starter, smooth runner and good accelerator. Handling and braking were excellent, and it was a fun throwback for this writer who first drove a 914 to learn how to drive with a clutch! (ca.1975). This not oft seen version, and not oft seen with no rust, but this example well cared for, and rebuilt engine and drivetrain, leaves us with a cost-efficient Porsche/VW collaboration that has its following. The Hell Hole on this 914 is excellent. So if you are one of those who do follow, this one deserves a close look.
