This copper 1970 Porsche 914 4 cylinder 1.7 litre is a running and driving car ready to be driven or raced. The car has new copper/gold paint and seat covers.  The racer kit is a Premiere Wide Body Kit installed by an Oregon Porsche dealer. There were only 3 put on at this dealership. The kit cost $5,000 in 1980 and "$10,000" to install. The car has been completely rebuilt. It is missing one stud on the front and back right side wheels...spacers must be removed and new studs put in. The emergency brake cables are no good. The defrost blower motor is no good. The heat exchanger was removed to fit in racing headers. Headers go to 3" then into dual track mufflers. It has high compression European pistons, mild cam, MSD ignition, new dizzy. A set of fresh rebuilt racing heads come with it but are too radical for street use. They have not been ported and polished yet. It has a single progressive Weber and runs out of carberation at 85 MPH. It is currently about 125 HP, stock was 90 HP. Owner says needs dual downdrafts and turbo to really go with over 200 HP with those additions. It can take a turbo with the HC heads. It has a rebuilt 5 speed transmission and beefed shifter assembly. New sychro's and the gears are good. Shifting bushings rebuilt. Has new clutch, flywheel and cable. New front rotors, back ones just turned, new pads and rebuilt front calipers. Master cylinder was OK. It has Weilmeister back springs and wheels with new tires. Owner installed stress boxes and chassis stiffening kit. There is rust under the driver side seat. Also know as "The Wedge O' Cheese" this car was a real joke and totally misrepresented by the guy I bought it from. I sold it to a dealer friend in California, who sold it to a customer site-unseen. He had to give the custoimer his money back and I refunded a considerable amount to my friend. It was finally sold for cost through an LA car weekly. Sold for $4,000.
