36k-Mile 1976 Porsche 914 PrivateCars - Dallas - 5 views
This 1976 Porsche 914 was purchased new through Empire Volkswagen, Inc. of Poughkeepsie, New York, and reportedly remained in the state until it was acquired by the seller and moved to Texas in February 2017. The car is finished in ivory over a black leatherette interior, and power comes from a fuel-injected 2.0L flat-four paired with a five-speed manual gearbox. The car was optioned with the Appearance Package and undercoated by the original selling dealership, and additional features include tinted windows, a heated backlight, intermittent windshield wipers, coco floor mats, and a Blaupunkt Seattle stereo. A tune-up, fluid changes, and a valve adjustment were performed under the seller’s ownership. This final-year 914 is offered with a window sticker, dealership paperwork, service records, and a clean Texas title in the name of the seller’s company.
The car was repainted under previous ownership according to the seller, who has provided a number of depth meter readings in the gallery below along with close-ups of the targa panel and roll bar. Features include factory tinted windows, fog lights, a power antenna, and black impact bumpers.
Aluminum 15″ Fuchs wheels are mounted with Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS tires sized 196/65 all around. Brake adjustments were reportedly performed under the seller’s ownership.
Black vinyl seats wear basketweave inserts to match those in the dash and door panels, and coco mats protect the carpeting. The car was optioned with the Appearance Package including a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a center console with auxiliary gauges, an under-armrest storage box, and a dual-tone horn.
Instrumentation includes a centered tachometer, a 150-mph speedometer, and a five-digit odometer showing just over 36k miles. Approximately 200 miles have been added by the seller. A slightly later Blaupunkt Seattle cassette stereo replaces the factory-optioned AM radio listed on the sales invoice.
The 2.0-liter Volkswagen Type 4 flat-four is equipped with Bosch D-Jetronic fuel injection and drives the rear wheels via a five-speed Type 901 manual transaxle. Service performed under the seller’s ownership reportedly included a valve adjustment, a tune-up, and fluid changes.
The car was undercoated by the original selling dealer in May 1976, with a receipt for the work viewable in the gallery along with additional underside photos. An aftermarket exhaust system has been installed under previous ownership according to the seller.
Paperwork includes a window sticker and a dealer invoice listing a green 1972 914 as a trade-in toward the original MSRP of $7,802.55. Walk-around, cold-start, and undercarriage videos are viewable below.
