1973 Porsche 914-6
3.6 Conversion The Best Of The Best
This is one of the finest 914-6 conversions to come out of our award winning Porsche 914 shop. Custom built for a gentleman whose life story changed, no expense was spared in making this car a Florida street rod, nice enough for a any Porsche show yet as fast from stop light to stop light to very cooly astound any rice burner.
Built from a one owner 1973 chassis taken to the body shell, we started from scratch on this one to create the ultimate 914 super car. We started by welding in a 914 GT chassis stiffening kit and predrilling the oil cooler, air conditioning condenser, air conditioning compressor, and oil tank holes. We then welded in the dual club sport mount to handle the power of the 32,000 original mile 1992 964 engine we later installed. We then refinished the complete car in two stage original phoenix red color and replaced every rubber seal and interior piece with the best available parts. The perfect running 3.6 was detailed with factory fit 914-6 custom made sheet metal, MSDS tuned headers, and stock 914-6 new Dansk muffler. Palo Alto speedometer built a custom factory match tach, and we beautifully incorporated the Motronic 3.6 wiring harness into the 914 original factory one. The rebuilt transaxle features the so called "beefy" intermediate plate and is connected to rebuilt CV axles, tapped rear hubs, Bilstein shocks, factory 914-6 rear springs, and 914-6 rear rotors. The front end is all late model 911 with low slung front sway bar, turbo tie rods, Bilstein shocks/struts and reproduction Mahle type "gas burner" wheels with Michelin tires. For the most part, everything is new or rebuilt on this example, and has only recently been completed so there are virtually only test miles put on this 914-6. The air conditioning system is a new one custom built for this car, perfectly cold with r 134a and using dual fans to cool both the condenser and the front mounted oil cooler. Custom fabrication here includes the beautiful metal housing, and a custom fabricated GT front chrome bumper.
As you all probably know, we have done many of these six conversions at our award winning 914 shop so are very familiar with all aspects of these cars and how to get them just like the factory would have done it back then. We have many rare examples (including the famous Peter Greg Brumos 916 and the so called last six, a factory kept GT conversion, so have plenty to reference. With stock 2.0 six cylinder 914s in this condition selling for well over 125 thousand dollars, but too collectible to be driven, this car is the best of both worlds, tremendously powerful, reliable, make from the far superior late body shell, true to what the Porsche factory would have made if they had continued the sixes, yet as a conversion, able to be driven and enjoyed. With over 100 thousand spent on this conversion, you will not be disappointed.
