It's not a kit, it's hand made, one off, all metal.


There's a thread about that car with lots of pictures over at 914world.com ...

Wow, that is the first 914 "kit" I've seen that honestly looks good. I'd love to see more info on the car and the build up process if anyone can point in the right direction.

I found it with a quick search of "diamond plate" :lol: I remember the interior hitting me out of left field.

It is nice to see some amazing art work, craftsmanship, and peoples raw talent. It amazes me that so much can be done to a car, but you can still see where it came from, and to me, that is great work.

More importantly, how can we recreate this design?

With a higher rear deck, box-ier flares, and wider flares

this makes for a much meaner look.
This could easily go into current day production.
Comments?

I hate to say this, but those wheels make it look like a Hot Wheels or Matchbox car. What is on both trunks? The body looks nice, but just not for me. I like both of the other cars on here, the blue and orange one, and the silver one. I think they were both done right, and add to the cars.
I like both the stock look, and the GT looks of these cars. Only very few customs. I know the creator of the Blue one is talking about making a kit of that, plus redoing the car in aluminum instead of metal.

It's "DUB" 914.

oh wait, it's an RC, or maybe a slot, no, must be an RC.
Does not really have anything to do with either of the 2 cars above.
They are really, and that is a toy.
The silver one, I have no clue what the power plant is, But the guy that owns the blue and orange one has a 585 HP 383, the bad thing, is it still has the 901 box. It has not blown up yet, but has not been beat on either.

Hello, I'm the owner of this car. It isnt a kit. I have a friend who builds street rods and is an amazing metal fabricator. The whole car is metal. It has three inch clearance and is 43 inches at the roof. We put a 585 HP 383 stroker in it. The car has a chromoly cage from the front to the rear and the roll bar opens with the door. It is hinged. If you want this work or better done I can hook you up with him. I have been sitting on this car for a couple years as the state of Washington would not let me license it. I can now but have been debating whether to build a completely new chassis - more current in technology or continue with this one. A new chassis would incorporate more of a 962 style design with transverse suspension.

Well if that isn't the perfect pose you have there! You look as mean as the car.

I bet a few hours went into that body.






Joking aside, good pose by your kid.
