We came across this Silver 1975 Porsche 914 1.8 for sale on Craigslist in Melrose, Massachusetts where the third owner hopes to get $13,000. Using the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool as a guide, the private seller currently has his 914 priced $500 above the #3 “Good” level of $12,500.
The third caretaker over the past two years reports he purchased the car in Sacramento and that its a rust-free example with 147K miles traveled. This 914 features a rebuilt engine now topped with twin Solex carburetors, however, the original fuel injection system is included as part of the sale. A great selling point is complete documentation going back to the original owner.
While the body appears to be rust free based on the pictures provided, the aftermarket dash pad has us concerned about the condition of the dashboard underneath, especially since this was exposed to the California sun for many years. The same holds true for the driver’s side seat bolster shown. Depending on how those items look in person, they may become bargaining levers to get the final sale price lowered a bit. Good luck with the purchase!
