The "new to me" 1970
was once owned by Bob Wood of the California San Francisco Bay area.
He was one of the 914 Club founders from what I understand. All of
pictures I could find can be viewed here.
Brown 74 2.0 4 cylinder. SOLD!
||I bought this car in Santa Barbara CA. for $3500 One owner car
with 161,000 miles and the motor has never been rebuilt. Repainted
the original metallic silver in 1990 and only driven about 4k miles after
that. Unfortunately, this car was wrecked. I'm in the process
it out (very slowly). Need anything from an early
914? Here are some more pictures.

||Purchased November, 2000 The previous owner sold the car for
$1000 because it would not pass Colorado emissions. As it happens,
the shop that she had paid over $700 to had left the two rear spark plugs
loose, as well as several carb base plates and manifold nuts loose.
$140 for new muffler and some exhaust gas analyzer time at a local shop
and emissions sticker and collector plates were complete. The car
has Weber 40 IDFs installed since 1990. I put on a Bursch exhaust
and replaced the Bosch 009 distributor with a 050. 5 2.0 Fuchs with
Pirelli P6s were purchased for $600 and will be mounted as soon as I fully
them. This stock steering wheel has to go also. I'm thinking
about a MOMO Racing Line model.

switch in any position. The text on page 2 is a tiny bit small, but
it can be read.
||I attempted to rebuild a heater blower motor without much success.
Mechanically it was shot. You can see in the pictures that the choke
coil from the power lead to the brush kept de-soldering itself when the
windings smack the magnets due to the shoddy bushing in the bottom of the
housing. Notice the grooves in the magnets. Replaced it with
a motor from a 73 single blower unit. The mounting flange of the
motor was too large to fit in the 74 double outlet housing. With
a die grinder I removed approximately .050 all around the mounting hole
in the housing. Sandblasted the mounting clamp. Works like
a champ if not a tad weak. The motor is a smaller unit, but it beats
