1974 914-6 Conversion for sale in Seattle
I tried to buy a 914 when I was 15 years old as a project car. Great plan, until my parents found out. Still, the dream of a street legal go-kart persists. Usually my dreams focus around cheap non-Porsche engine swaps, as most 914s leave a bit to be desired in the power department. Going the high class route would be doing a sweet swap with a more fortified Porsche engine, which is what we’ve found today. The list of enhancements is exhaustive; I’ll leave it to the seller’s words:
Body completing stripped, fenders reworked, acid etch primed and painted DuPont Chroma Black. The job included both front and rear trunks, engine bay with engine removed and door jams. The cost for this work was over $10,000 in 1993.

Exterior: Overall 8.5/10
Paint- DuPont Chroma Black- The paint on this is gorgeous. It has a deep and consistent shine with none of the orange peel they would have come with from new.
