True 914-6, Restored and Beautifully Detailed

1970 Porsche 914-6
s/n 9140430882
Velvet Red with Tan Interior

This restored, rust free example is in impeccable cosmetic and mechanical condition.

It was recently repainted in a color very close to stock. The color is in fact a later factory hue that was originally applied during the late 80's and early 90's to 911's, 928's and 944's. The repaint was a very high quality job, and there are no significant scratches are chips anywhere on the car. All the body panels are extremely straight with good gaps throughout. All the stainless trim and window frames are straight and all lenses and badges new or restored. The car sits on brand new tires (Bridgestone RE 750), and beautifully and correctly repolished rims.

The dash, door panels, seats, and console upholstery are exceptional. The carpets are nice, with very minor discoloration. The door jams and rocker sills are all nicely detailed.

Both the frontal compartment and rear stowage area are fully restored, repainted, and nicely detailed. The engine compartment is also detailed and remains completely stock.

This car was owned for quite a few years by an elderly woman in Los Gatos, California. The car was serviced during this period by Ken Mack, former owner of Ken's Sportech in Campbell, CA. Mr. Mack, who has since sold his business and has since retired, ultimately bought the car from the elderly woman after many years of persistently asking. Mack then went about building a more powerful engine, beefing up the suspension for autocrossing and time trialing, but kept most of the rest of the car completely stock, such as the exterior and interior.

Mr. Mack put in a race-bred motor; high compression pistons, 2.7 cams, and a 2.2 liter motor, which may be from a 911S. The exact mileage on the motor post rebuild is unknown, but suspected to be 40,000+ miles. It puffs a bit of smoke when you start it up, especially if it has been sitting for a while, but once it is running, the smoke goes away and it runs flawlessly. A recent compression check was done by Tom Amon at Mobile Works West, and all cylinders were between 175-185 lbs. The carburetors are in good shape, and there seems to be nothing that is urgently needed at this time as far as the engine is concerned. It pumps out an estimated 160 hp, and has quite a bit of torque, especially in the lower gears.

During the time that Ken Mack owned the car; he was involved in an accident driving the car at Sears Point. The car was taken to Cecil Beach at Bodystyles in San Jose, California, and repaired. The car had to be straightened, some parts replaced (hood, fender, etc.), and finally repainted in the color it is now. All the work was very professionally done and the resulting car is a superb example with no evidence or repairs visible from the underside or in the bodywork.

After owning the car for some years, he sold the car in 2001 to Ryan Rossen, who purchased the car through Road Sport in Campbell, CA. Mr. Rossen owned the car for about a year, hardly drove the car, and eventually decided to sell it. The current owner purchased the car from Mr. Rossen and has owned the car since 2002.

The current owner has kept all receipts for work done during his ownership. Since 2002 all of the seals were replaced in and around the cabin, the flywheel replaced when he performed a full service on the car a few months ago. The clutch was virtually new. The first and second gear syncros are strong, both up and down. The brakes were serviced recently as well. The rear rotors are a bit worn. The front rotors and pads, and rear pads have been replaced, new OEM rear rotors, still in the box, come with the car. The car also comes with two front rotors that are cross-drilled for better braking. These cost over $600 new.

With the car come brand new Lloyd car mats, a car cover, tool bag with tools, extra front and rear brake rotors, and the space saver spare, and all records for work done during the current ownership period.
