1971 911S engine that is in it is 6311776 I think, the 4th digit is hard to read until we get it out of the car for a thorough cleaning.

Finally got the other car off of the lift and got the 914-6 up in the air so we could see what we bought. It's actually quite solid with good pans etc. A few minor spots to deal with, but overall in better condition than we were expecting. We also dropped the engine and transaxle out of it and everything looks good so far. Saw many things to indicate that it has less than 5k on a complete rebuild of the engine and trans as we were told when we bought it. Plan to thoroughly clean the engine compartment and bolt it back in. Also pulled the calipers so we can send them off to be rebuilt. COA arrived this week confirming that it still has it's original transaxle (converted to side shifter) and what the original engine number was. Interestingly the car originally had chrome wheels.

So Porsche ended up putting the engine number on your COA or you figured it out prior?

We were able to find out what we thought was the original engine number which we supplied to PCNA when we applied for the COA. They confirmed the number on the COA, along with the transaxle number, which we got off the one in the car, and it is the original.

Crazy how the factory calls steel wheels that were chromed?
Chrome whole disk wheels?

Car is shaping up.

Finally had some time to tinker some more on the 914-6. We pulled the interior out for a thorough cleaning. Floors look surprisingly good. Pulled the pedal cluster to clean and treat under it, looks like it was rebuilt not too many miles ago.
Replacing the master cylinder just because it looks crusty. Debating whether to go with the 19mm bore or the 23mm. It has the larger SC brakes on the front and stock 914-6 rears which we sent off to the rebuilders.

Opinions on 19vs23mm?

Dash and seats are in excellent condition after cleaning - another pleasant surprise.
Someone did convert the passenger seat to the adjustable type at some point.

Cleaned up the engine/transaxle some more too. Now they are ready to go back in after we finish cleaning the engine compartment and area above the transaxle.

The other 914 we bought from the same estate (currently on eBay).

Caliper piston sizes have not changed, and the 23 is a big bore change from the 19. With the 23 you would get higher pedal effort and lower brake feel. I have always felt that the 19 is a good balance. I do have some 20's to play with, but these are very hard to find. The 20 was used on the 911S from 1969 onwards for only a short period.

Definitely go with the 19mm.
When can I come see your car? Or help you with your project?

While you are at it you should also strongly consider ceramic coating your H/E's and Exhaust.

I think it has quite a dramatic effect on the overall look of the car's undercarriage and has the added benefit of preserving your uber rare H/E's, not to mention no more heat discoloring on the exhaust tubes plus improved heat dissipation. Here are mine that were done nearly 10 years ago and still look pristine to this day.

Not sure when it will be for sale. So far it has been fun to tinker on, but eventually it will be on the market. We scrubbed down all of the pans last week. A little more cleaning in the engine compartment and the eng/trans will go back in after Thanksgiving. We deep cleaned the trunks today. Forgot to get a picture of the front trunk, it cleaned up even a bit better than the rear trunk.

We got the engine/transaxle back in today. Still have a few more things to hook up, but hope to to have it running again soon. Also got all of the calipers back from the rebuilder yesterday - they look great! With any luck we should have it running (and stopping) in the next week. Looking forward to driving it very soon.

Got it running today

We finally got a chance to put a new battery in it along with a new fuel filter, oil filter and 10 qts of Brad Penn. It fired right up and runs great. We don't have a plate on it so we couldn't take it for a drive, but it is quick revving and sounds incredible.

Hope to take it on a test run in the next few days. Also got a chance to take a few more pix while it was outside the shop(we try not to run them inside the shop).

Car is now on the auction site

Several people have asked when this car will be available - it will be on eBay tomorrow 1/15/2018.
Just got it back from the shop that went through some electrical issues for us - now everything works: Headlights, turn signals, hazard flashers, brake lights back-up light, wipers, gauges and horn all working fine now.

Good job on the car.
914-6's are in high demand right now, so hoping you have a great auction.
Best of luck.

Thanks Doug, it's off to a decent start with 4 bidders in less than 24 hours.

By the way, I sold my Porsche Tractor last week. It's on its way to Sequim where it will have to work for its diesel on an apple orchard.
