Need help from owners of 1974 914 cars

Do you own a 1974 914? I do too and know of a few others. Several of us are collecting certain information about the 1974 cars to understand certain details for our cars. This information is not available elsewhere without your help. Summary details will be posted here after sorting the data. Please contribute if you can, either by a message on this BBS or privately to me at:

bowlsby@aol.com

Please provide as much as possible of the following about your 1974 car:

1. VIN
2. Chassis number and paint code from chassis plate at drivers front door jamb.
3. Rear drivers door jamb label date
4. Do you have light grey headlight relay covers in the front trunk?
5. Engine code and transaxle code if original

Thanks!

The 2 liter will be between the fan shroud and the oil filler and the 1.8 should be on the top of the engine toward the back of the engine on the passenger side. The transmission number will be on the very bottom edge of the transmission, I had to shoot mine with brake cleaner to read it. It is at the seam where the trans case bolts together.

I just picked up a '74 1.8 in silver metalic (L96D?). The VIN # is 4742910874 and it has black relay covers. It also has 42K original milesand is going to make a sweet platform for my 3.6 conversion, the hell with keeping it original!! It's amazing how tight things are at only 42K!
