75 914

So I thought I started a thread, but I can't find it so...it must not have happened.

Earlier this year a friend and I bought a couple of 914's. Well actually he bought another too, but that is another story.

I thought I would post some of my work on here. Normally I run in the 911/930 forums, but I do like these little go cart like cars. The goal here was to find a good deal on a 914 that was not a complete basket case in the way of rust and get it on the road with minimal (think relatively for a 914) work.

We found a good/fair deal and the car is not a basket case. My buddy was going to do the motor work and I would work on the other stuff. I didn't take a lot of early pics of the car but here it is on my lift.




One of the first things done was pull the motor. I can get a 911 motor out in under two hours, but this took me a little long. I have never pulled a motor out of a 914. Pretty straight forward. I do like air cooled motors and not having the cooling lines.

This thing was covered in west Texas dust... It is everywhere.




I also took off this 916 bumper. It is not my thing.


There was evidence of a light hit at some point in the past. I am going to straighten some of it out and live with it. This is not a restoration, just some spruce up.




I cleaned up the edge a little with a body dolly and a couple body hammers.

Looking a little further, the car appears to be in decent shape.

in back

The back wasn't too bad either.


Looks like the wheel rubbed severely at some point. Going to clean this up and put some worth undercoating later.



I did find some rust, can you guess? The hell hole. It was minor and I will show the repair I did a little later. Gotta run. Talk at y'all later.

Already sold the front bumper locally. I think I am going to keep the rear and put a different front fg bumper on.
