Thats a shame because they are such a sweet drive on injection.
Probably worth searching out the parts to put it back to standard.

I wouldnt know where to start, it was running fine having just been on a 150 mile round trip to the west coast ramble and then dropped off at the shipping agents last Friday.

Cool another 9fourteen joins the ranks Thumb
If you want to return to the original fuel injection, Angus at Greatworth Classics would be my first call.
Welcome along and in the 50th year celebrations as well, good timing!

If you need any help with anything just post up or PM me. I do have quite extensive knowledge of these little gems Rolling Eyes

its partially dismantled with just enough installed for it to run, turn, stop etc...
The car was rammed with all the parts that have been removed so figuring out whats what is first
It needs completely stripping for prep and repaint, retrim etc.....

Not for any reason beyond idle curiosity, but roughly how much does it cost to ship a car from the US these days?

The shipping cost was $1200, there is a payment to unload at this end of £380
There is a cost to move the car from the owner to the shipping agent in the states, in my case I paid the vendor to deliver
Then there is the cost to transport from the dockside to your address, I used Shiply
Lastly there is tax to pay at 5% of purchase price
All in it cost me just over £2K

Sweet ride - I've always had a spot for the 914 (and it has pop-ups just like my 944.... in fact some of the parts for the pop-ups are shared with the 914! Hand )

I went to look at that last weekend
It was past saving in my view, the chassis integrity was gone and it was folding in the middle and nipping the doors up
The floor, front and rear boot, doors, wings, A pillars, rear quarters were shot through
It had been a jersey car most of its life and was complete and the interior wasnt too bad, the dash and centre console, door cards, and back pad were in good condition so valuable to some one with a US import with sun damage
It is a 2.0 litre model but not running so if it turns out to have a good engine and transmission it would have value.

I went back today to see it through the auction
I set my limit based on the nominal value of parts that were of interest to me and I pulled out at £1600, it went for £1650. I was initially going to go £1800 which would have then cost circa £2000 including the commission but decided I could buy a lot of parts for £2000 hence pulling out a bit earlier than planned

I hope the winning bidder is a member, it would be good to know his plans and how he valued it
