Evaluation: Represented as the only known 914 finished in special order Ice Green Metallic. Recent restoration work including paint, upholstery, and rebuilt suspension and brakes, but not fully redone because it wasn’t necessary. Gorgeous underbody. Two cracks in the left rear taillight lens. A few paint chips on some panel edges. Light wear on the steering wheel. Little to nitpick.
Bottom Line: We are long past the days when the Porsche crowd didn’t take four-cylinder 914s seriously, and both Gooding and RM have sold top notch examples for over 90 grand. This same car was the last lot of the day at RM’s Monterey auction in 2018, and it sold for $61,600. Its odometer shows just 378 more miles since then, it’s in essentially the same condition, and if anything demand for 914s is even stronger today. This, then, was something of a bargain for such a strong example with special order paint, and a costly couple of years for the seller.
