Chassis no. 9141430233; Engine no. 6420185. Tangerine with matte black stripes over black vinyl. 1991cc flat six, 2x3 Weber carburetors, 5-speed, Fuchs wheels, G Force T/A tires.

Evaluation: Known history from new with Porsche employees Art Director Erich Strenger and Gerhard Blendstrup before being acquired by the present owner. Restored in 2008. Empty radio hole. Sound paint and interior. Fresh, clean engine compartment and chassis. 1972 914/6 engine with Webers.

Bottom Line: A legend among Porsche fans, the second of just 23 built as a homologation special to qualify an uprated 914/6 for SCCA C/Production competition. Steel flares and front valence, 21mm wheel spacers, flared fiberglass rockers and wide Fuchs wheels. Another 16 were built to M491 specs along with 400 “GT Conversion Kits” for dealer installation. Used in Porsche promotions and now beautifully restored even though it is re-engined. Its exalted stature among mid-engined Porsches is shown by this result which is even higher than a 914/6 GT would bring.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
