Up for auction is a 1976 Porsche 914 1.8L that has been converted to a 4.3L GM V/6 with approximately 175Hp and 250ft-lbs of torque. The car DOES RUN but DOES NOT DRIVE so please assume that this will require a full restoration. The prior owner informed me that the 4.3L was rebuilt prior to installation and that an Edelbrock Performer manifold and Edelbrock carb was installed with a ceramic coated Supertrap header and exhaust system, electric water pump, alternator, and Accel HEI ignition system. He was not sure of the specs on the internals so unfortunately I don't have any of the cam, piston, etc information. The engine has been installed with the trans adapter kit, motor mounts, and radiator but the accelerator cable, fuel lines, cooling fan, clutch cable, and shifter linkage still need to be hooked up. Also the car does come with a targa top and the front rotors and rear hubs have been drilled to accept 5 lug wheels although 4 lug Riverias are installed now.
Overall the body is pretty straight and rust free but the hell hole area will need some attention (see pics). The interior, brakes, wiring, lenses, windshield, and seals are all shot too so assume that they will all need attention. Basically assume that all of the cosmetic items on the car will need attention and that you are buying this for the conversion drive train and roller shell only.
The car currently comes with a bill of sale but if you require a CA title I can head down to the AAA office and acquire one for $150.

"There have been some small mistakes and we will do it better. For example the design could be better." - Matthias Mueller.
The design of the Porsche Panamera has been divisive, to say the least. Pretty much any Porsche with four doors was going to draw the ire of enthusiasts, but the fast-back-style roofline, prominent curves and seemingly never-ending hood have particularly irked some brand loyalists.
About 30 years before Ferdinand Porsche designed the Volkswagen Beetle, he created the Egger-Lohner electric vehicle, C.2 Phaeton model - or simply, the P1 - you see above. This was the first vehicle created by Porsche, and the car gets its nickname from the fact that he had stamped "P1" on many of the parts marking it as the first Porsche... sorry, 356 No. 1.

Now while you'd think that such an important piece of Porsche heritage has been in a museum or even the automaker's not-so-secret lair, it has actually been sitting at a warehouse for the last 112 years. Thankfully, that's all about to change as Porsche has recovered P1, and the car will soon be on "permanent display" at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart.
The P1 has a 3 horsepower motor capable of delivering a top speed of 21 miles per hour and a driving range of 49 miles, and, like many vehicles in Porsche's history, the motor is positioned at the rear of the vehicle. According to the press release posted below, the P1 finished first in a 24-mile electric vehicle race in Berlin in 1899, but it has been sitting since 1902.
Each year, J.D. Power and Associates surveys original owners of three-year-old vehicles to find out what kinds of problems they have had experienced over the last 12 months, and then it uses this data to create its annual Vehicle Dependability Study. This means that the models in the 2013 study are 2010 model year vehicles, and J.D. Power rates each make as well as the top individual models based on how many problems were experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100).
Debunking the idea that carryover models are more dependable than new or updated models, the 2013 study found that the average carryover model experienced 133 PP100, while all-new or redesigned vehicles for the 2010 model year had 116 PP100; vehicles that received minor changes fared the best with just 111 PP100. The overall average for all makes was 126 PP100, which is the lowest figure since the findings were first issued in 1989.
