From The Tommy Trabue Collection | Unrestored in Exceptional Conditional
Jointly developed, manufactured, and marketed by Porsche and Volkswagen, the 914 was intended as the replacement for both the 912 and Karmann Ghia. Introduced in 1969, the well-balanced and surprisingly spacious Targatopped roadster was equipped with an all-independent suspension and five-speed gearbox as standard equipment.
While the majority of the 115,000 Porsche 914s built from 1969 to 1976 were powered by a four-cylinder engine, this particular car is one of approximately 3,300 914/6 models built by Porsche and fitted with the 2.0-liter flat six-cylinder engine from the 911 T, making 110 hp. This 1970 914/6 is finished in lovely Signal Orange over a black leatherette interior and is equipped with Fuchs wheels, chrome bumpers, passenger-side footrest, and front fog lamps. Presented in very original condition throughout with the exception of a high-quality repaint in its original hue, it presents incredibly well, a testament to its fastidious care. The 914/6 was added to Tommy Trabue’s collection 13 years ago and has benefited from consistent upkeep as evidenced by maintenance receipts on file.
Accompanied by its tools, keys, jack, and spare tire, this 914/6 was serviced in September 2019. Arguably more balanced to drive than its contemporary 911 sibling, 914/6 models, like this fine example, are increasingly sought-after collectibles.
