We came across this 1975 Porsche 914 1.8 for sale on Craigslist in Norfolk, Virginia where the private seller hopes to get $6,900. Using the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool as a guide, the private seller currently has his 914 priced $300 below the #4 “Fair” level of $7,200.
The current caretaker of this 914 reports he has only driven it about 1,000 miles over the past two years he has been busy restoring his Porsche. He describes his 914 as “practically rust-free” so you will need to plan an in-person inspection to confirm what rust does exist and whether it affects the structure of this Porsche. Mechanically, the seller completely revamped his 914’s fuel system and completely rebuilt the engine that is now topped with two Dell’Orto DRLA45 carburetors.
While the current caretaker completed a lot of work to get his 914 back to its current condition, he honestly reports a number of things that still require attention and he’s willing to throw in a “1/2 garage of extra parts” as part of the sale. As long as the aforementioned rust is easily repairable and you’re handy enough to make the repairs still needed, this 914 could be a great addition to your garage. Good luck with the purchase!
