Thanks to reader Henry for forwarding this post in the Pelican Forums.  300hp in 2,300 pounds.  Killer.  Looks like the job was done right from reading the description.  Bare metal restoration, reinforcement everywhere and five lug Fuch conversion. At only $13,900 it seems like a bargain when compared to Monster Miatas.  Too bad it’s pull me over red.

“1972 Porsche 914 V8 as seen in the January 2010 issue of Retro Cars magazine article by John Glynn (Concealed Weapon), and Porsche Picture of the day (6-11-2011) in the Early S Registry thread by John Z. Goriup.

This was originally a 1972 914 1.7 that was purchased and converted to a 914 GT style with a V8 conversion by myself. The chassis is rust free as it had a bare metal restoration performed with a baking soda paint removal system.

The cars handling is completely neutral with little or no sway. It has a very firm and taught feeling with exciting acceleration. It has been seen at two RGruppe Treffens and a Targa California.

It weighs approx. 2300lbs and has 300 + HP.
