Classic Car Overview

1970 Porsche 914-6 VIN 9140431494 Engine No. 64054858 matching Completed May 1, 1970 Originally delivered to Dr. John Border from Muncie, Indiana by Kline Porsche / Audi Inc in Indianapolis, Indiana on July 14, 1970. Always serviced by Kline Porsche with extensive records from 1970 to 1977, documenting 46,374 miles. The second owner Dave Napier had the engine rebuilt at 47,857 miles on February 22, 1978 by Autohaus On Westfield in Indianapolis, Indiana. The third owner purchased this 914-6 from Isringhausen Porsche Imports in Springfield, Illinois on June 7, 1990, and has owned it for the past three decades. We have the invoices documenting the mileage at 53,731 miles and the car was finished in Black. According to the Certificate of Authenticity, this 914-6 was originally finished in Silver Metallic (color code 8010) with a black leatherette interior with basketweave. This 914-6 was optioned from the factory with USA equipment, leather-covered steering wheel, fog lights, driving lights, center seat cushion, tinted glass all round, alloy wheels, 185 HR 14 tires, and a Becker radio (a Blaupunkt AM/FM Blue-Dot radio has now been installed). Mechanically, this 914-6 runs perfectly with a numbers-matching 2.0-liter flat-six (type 901/38) rated at 110 horsepower, a smooth-shifting 5-speed 901 manual dogleg transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes. The wheels are 14 x 5.5 Fuchs alloy rims with Vredestein 185 HR 14 tires. The interior is all original and is finished in black leatherette with a leather-wrapped steering wheel. This 914-6 is very straight and rust-free with excellent gaps and panel fit. Complete with Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, original owners manual, tool kit, spare tire, records dating back to 1970. An excellent opportunity to acquire an outstanding 914-6 in a very desirable color combination. History Porsches 914-6 variant featured a carbureted 110 bhp (82 kW; 112 PS) 2.0 L flat-6 engine from the 1969 911T, placed amidships in front of a version of the 1969 911s 901 gearbox configured for a mid-engine sports car. Karmann manufactured the rolling chassis at their plant, completing Volkswagen production in-house or delivering versions to Porsche for their final assembly. The 914-6 models used lower gear ratios and high brake gearing in order to try to overcome the greater weight of the six-cylinder engine along with higher power output. They also featured five-lug wheels and ignition on the left side of the steering wheel. Suspension and handling were otherwise mostly the same. By the late 1960s, both Volkswagen and Porsche were in need of new models; Porsche was looking for a replacement for their entry-level 912, and Volkswagen wanted a new range-topping sports coupe to replace the Karmann Ghia. At the time, the majority of Volkswagens developmental work was handled by Porsche, part of a setup that dated back to Porsches founding; Volkswagen needed to contract out one last project to Porsche to fulfill the contract and decided to make this that project. Ferdinand Pich, who was in charge of research and development at Porsche, was put in charge of the 914 project. Porsche 914 replaced the top of VWs line, the Type 34 Karmann Ghia.
