This 1970 Porsche 914-6 is finished in Tangerine over black and was purchased by the seller five years ago. The numbers-matching 2.0-liter flat-six has since been reinstalled following a top end rebuild, including the installation of pressure-fed chain tensioners. The suspension and brakes were also extensively gone through as described below, and the seller has added approximately 8k miles to the odometer. Previously owned in Arizona, California, and West Virginia, this 914-6 was optioned from the factory with fog lights, a leather steering wheel, and tinted side glass. It is now being offered with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, records dating back to 2015, and a clean Illinois title in the seller’s name.
The car was reportedly repainted by a previous owner in factory Tangerine (Blood Orange/23) due to age-related wear. The Porsche CoA confirms the exterior color as correct and that the car was ordered with fog lights.
In 2015, the 14×5.5″ Fuchs wheels and were refinished by Al Reed of Southern California. They are reportedly date stamped 6/70 and currently wear Goodyear Assurance tires.
The seller has provided photos of the rockers with the covers removed, as well as the targa bar without the vinyl and the rear trunk without the carpet.
The interior is finished in black leatherette, and the seats were recovered in 2017. New Coco mats have been installed by the seller and a Blaupunkt Frankfurt head unit is installed. The CoA indicates that the car is equipped with a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
6,809 miles are shown on the 5-digit odometer, which is believed to have rolled over once. The seller has added 8k miles during five years of ownership, and the instruments and switches are said to operate correctly.
When the seller purchased the car a different engine was installed, though the original 2.0-liter was included with the sale. In 2017 the seller commissioned a top-end rebuild of the engine from Perfect Power, including new valve guides, exhaust valves, valve springs, and Carrera-style oil-pressure fed chain tensioners.
The type 901/38 flat-six was factory-rated at 110 horsepower and is mated to a 901 5-speed manual transaxle. During the 2017 top-end rebuild, the head studs were inspected and said to be in good condition.
Stamping #6405734 can be seen above and matches the CoA, confirming engine originality.
In 2017 the seller commissioned a refurbishment of the suspension and brake system. New Bilstein shocks, springs, and Turbo tie rods were fitted to the car. A new brake master cylinder was also installed. The front calipers were replaced and the rear ones were rebuilt by PMB Performance. Work in May 2018 included rebuilding of the rear brake pressure valve and installation of steel braided lines as documented in receipts in the photo gallery below.
This sale comes with the original 914-6 owner’s manual and tool kit.
The Porsche CoA confirms the original colors, engine number, and options.
