Frankenstein: 1972 Porsche 914 V8

This next feature comes as a seller submission from Bill who told us that it is time to sell his “beloved Frankenstein.” He also describes it as a “1972 Porsche 914 with a small block Chevy wedged behind the seats…embarrassingly wide Carol Shelby Anaconda wheels, polarizing hand-laid fiberglass flares, Singer-esq interior.” The exterior is a bit rough, but the interior is better executed than expected and the wheels (Carrol Shelby Anaconda) have a nice vintage racer Minilite look to them. Find this 1972 Porsche 914 V8 offered for $7,200 buy-it-now or make-offer in Los Angeles, CA via eBay.

This is my 1972 Porsche 914. VIN # 4722918911. It’s powered by a Chevrolet 350 Small Block V8 that was pulled from a 1977 Corvette with about 76k miles. Up top is a brand new Holly carburetor and HEI distributor. A pressure-washed tank, new fuel lines, and a Holly electric pump provide fuel. Cooling is via a 3 core aluminum radiator, twin Spal fans, and electronic thermostat. I built a custom cable shifter attached to a very nice side shift 901. VDO gauges, Tach-Adapt, 22mm front sway bar, nice interior.
Embarrassingly wide Carrol Shelby Anaconda wheels, polarizing hand-laid fiberglass flares, Singer-esq interior.

Personal inspection and test drives before the close of the auction are encouraged and welcome.
