I see Victorian 'Euro style" number plates on the silver  914 in Adam's photos - so I am guessing that is the actual car.

my car is the silver one .. got the wrong size wheels, and lots of missing details. 

 

Agree that the yellow one is off the charts cool (in my view). I will start with the silver and move twd the yellow in time.

Are there many of them over here? I saw one in the car park at the Shannons Sydney Classic recently - first time i've seen a 914 in person.

 

It's a 914-6 though, bit different to the regular 914s.

 

Photos of that silver 1 appear to be in Victoria around Albert Park. I think I saw it on CarSales.com.au not long ago.

Yeah, the one I saw was a 914-6 too (admittedly I have no idea of the differences besides the engine). Cant remember what colour it was now unfortunately.

Thanks Gents,

 

a quick lesson... there is a 914/4 - 4 cyl boxer... then a 914/6 - with 2.0 911 motor, and then the factory decided to race them. They built 47 and these are called a 914/6 GT. The car I have is a 914/6 GT replica ... with 3.2 Carrera motor and correct steel OEM guards. There are many fine details on the car I have not added, but just this week I bought the 10k Tacho, and 250KPH speedo. Needs 15" RSR spec Fuchs wheels - which I have ordered, and then the OEM alloy brakes etc etc .. I'll gradually chip away.

Hi Adam

Thanks for the quick lesson. I have never know much about these cars but have never a bad word about them.
I would imagine putting the 3.2 in a car that size would make it serious fun to drive.

Enjoy the experience

Cheers

PB
