I bought this red 1972 Porsche 914 from California and, like many cars from the West coast, is rust free. Although its body condition makes it a rarity in itself; that is not what makes this car unique. What adds tremendous value is the engine… a 1965 date coded 911 engine that is in excellent running condition.

Like all air cooled Porsches, 914’s are rising in value and this car is a great one to have. With this car you get not only the 914 looks and handling you also get an engine that is worth possibly as much as the car itself. Let me list the attributes of this excellent machine.


Very straight body with original panels and a pretty nice quality repaint in the original Bahia Red. A few small chips here and there consistent with occasional road use. The paint is very presentable
Absolutely solid and rust free hellhole, front and rear trunks, floor pans, sills, jacking points, etc.
Targa panel painted body color
Body colored mirror (attached to quarter glass…no holes drilled in doors). I also have a matching mirror for the passenger side that I have not attached
Excellent chrome bumpers
Fairly new gray carpets and matching upholstery. Not factory original but look very nice and is comfortable. One small tear in drivers seat. See picture.
Solid dash with one small crack. I keep a dash cover on it. The crack is above the ashtray....see picture
Door panels are in nice shape as is back pad and door cards
Momo leather steering wheel and Momo shift knob


Everything works including hazard lights, seat belt light, horn, fog lights, etc.
Factory fog lights. Good replacement lens incuded
Headlights are flat..H4's?
Custom triple gauge with oil pressure, oil temperature, and fuel gauge. Also has low oil pressure light, alternator light and parking brake light
Restored 911 tachometer
Brand new Alpine stereo (satellite/CD/AM/FM/MP3, etc…) with brand new Infinity speakers in factory speaker pods
Brand new power antenna with switch. I installed a switch so I can control when it raises and lowers. You only need an antenna for AM/FM so why have it up in the air when you don’t need it?
Battery relocated to front trunk
Battery Switch in engine bay
Alarm system

Suspension: This car handles exceptionally well! I’ve owned approximately 10 914’s and this one handles better than all of them

21mm torsion bars (upgraded from stock 18mm)
180 lb springs
Rebuilt front brake calipers from PMB Performance
Stainless steel flex lines
New (last year) Falken tires
The wheels are Rivieras that have been machined to accept a custom machined center cap. They are 4 bolt wheels. They look good in person and anyone who sees them in person likes them. Of course, they are easily changed out to 914 Fuchs, Mahles, Pedrinis or other 914 wheels of your choice.

Engine: Okay…here is the money shot….the differentiator…the reason this car is unique

Completely rebuilt '65 911 2 liter engine with 2.2E pistons and cylinders.
Serial number 901561 (65 serial numbers are from 900361 to 903550)
Electric fuel pump
Bursch performance headers
Dual triple Webers rebuilt
Engine pulled and resealed
Factory 914/6 oil tank and engine mount
New oil hoses
Correct 914/6 factory throttle linkage and clutch cable bracket
Excellent running engine. Good oil pressure and oil temperature. Just drove car 40 miles this morning (8/16) ...see picture of oil temperature and oil pressure.
Nice shifting 901 transmission
New heavy duty clutch. pressure plate, and throw out bearing
