1974 Porsche 914 2.0 Big Bore Widebody description
This car is awesome, looks great, is a blast to drive and will be a great example of a 2.0 Targa 914 once buttoned up.
No reserve. I can ship it wherever you like just let me know. Car does run and drive fine so we can drive it to a shipping company or they can come pick it up. Iâ€™m near Fresno California.
If you want any specific pics or video of me starting it up and how it sounds please email me and I can get you whatever you like. I really wish I could finish this but it just sits under a tarp in the garage and it canâ€™t go with us to the new house. I am a total PORSCHE guy with 3 currently. I really love them and this is a great example of one of the last true air cooled street legal go carts! Especially with the big bore and wider tires and Stance.
Good luck.On Jan-01-18 at 22:03:09 PST, seller added the following information:
UPDATE: I got a 13mm deep socket with a slit in it so I decided to change out the cylinder temperature sensor. It seemed to make the idle much smoother but after warming up it still sputters and backfired lightly when you throttle it so at this point it can only be a distributor cap issue or possibly a cold start valve. It really just needs a tune up. Someone who knows what they are doing. Iâ€™ll update if I find out anything else. Thanks again and good luckOn Jan-01-18 at 22:26:57 PST, seller added the following information:
I forgot to mention I had them switch the car from points to electronic ignition When it was in the shop. Itâ€™s a possibility itâ€™s a distributor cap issue thatâ€™s causing the sputtering and backfiring. Whatever it is, Itâ€™s a simple fix Iâ€™m sure of that. Anyone who works in these cars should be able to tune it up in no time. Just being upfront with everyone.
Another solution would be go back to points or to go to carbs like many do to rule out issues with fuel injection. I didnâ€™t want to go that route. I donâ€™t mind the fuel injection. But lots of guys go to caress Thanks
I have had some questions so I will go ahead and comment:1) to clarify this car is a factory 2.0 and big bore kit was added. I am not sure what size bore.2) The fender flares are fiberglass not steel and they are all blended into front and rear fiberglass bumper covers. If you wanted to go back to stock front and rear fenders you would have to cut the front and rear bumpers away and install stock bumpers.3) the car starts right up. Idles perfectly fine. Drives. As soon as temperature is in the engine (5 minutes or so), it becomes very rough. Idle drops, sputters, backfires. If I had the time and desire I would take it to get sorted out but we are moving and that is not an option. I have been told by a few people it could be a possible ManifoldPressure Sensor. This one appears to never have been rebuilt and is floating around in the engine bay. Something to think about.
I want to be clear this car is wrapped in vinyl. It is not painted! It looks decent but it is far from perfect. Many areas are not great but it is perfectly passable until you paint it or decide what you want to do with it. Car is considered a work in progress because it is not finished. Under the vinyl is a mixture of the stock red paint and primer and clear to help the vinyl attach better. Many of the compartments and gaps have black plastidip over the original red paint.Again, as stated, by no means is this vinyl perfect. I planned on painting the car and this was just something to pass the time until that happened. Please ask for specific pics if you want them. I have no problem taking whatever pics or video you want. Also you are free to come by and see the car at any time.Thanks and good luck.
