Fresh MOT through to 22/3/18.

Previous owner stripped the body back to bare metal and resprayed in Tangerine orange. The paint is stunning, this car really stands out and the body is 100% solid, clean and straight.
Original "bat wing" steering wheel
Targa top in great shape with all latches working well.
Recently fitted Euro/UK spec lights to front and rear
Heater and fans in good working condition
ATS wheels in good condition with good tyres all round.
The engine is strong, starts easily and pulls very well.
Gearbox is 5 speed, works efficiently and is very satisfying once you are used to it.
Over £2,700 spent recently bringing the car up to standard. Serviced last week by a garage who specialise in 914s with an oil and filter change.
The car is fun to drive and benefits from new Bilstein rear suspension making it handle superbly as would be expected for a light, mid engined Porsche.
With Porsche values on the increase and in particular 914 values rising, this car makes a great, fun investment. It also benefits from being classified as an historic vehicle and is road tax exempt with low insurance (current annual premium of £104)
Car is located in Menston, West Yorkshire which is about 15 miles north of Leeds. Any inspection welcome. Car is currently stored at a specialist air-cooled garage with full indoor, well lit viewing during office hours or other times by appointment.
