1975 914 6 conversion

I am helping my brother sell his 914 track car. A new marriage, new home and new job have left him little time to enjoy this great car.

We can trace the cars history back to the mid 1980's when a doctor in Ohio started the build with a 38,000 mile donor car. He did a major conversion to the car and went to the track with it doing mostly de's with it. We have over 250 photos of the transformation and over $100,000 in receipts.
After a few years, the car was sold to Art Woodworth in FL and Art co drove the car with Dave Panaccione for several years under the Specialty Imports banner. They ran mostly with HSR, some highlights were winning the night race in 1991 at Sebring and a class win at the 1993 America's 914 Challenge race at Rooebling Road. They had great success with the car. The car was powered then with a 2.8, twin plug engine. After a few years with the car, Art sold the car to Gary Gandy of Parish Heacock insurance. The car now had a 2.6 liter 6 cylinder in it. Gary used the car as a sales backdrop for their STP (Storage, Transport and Paddock) insurance at racetracks across the US. Gary joked that the car had over 100,000 trailer miles on it but he only used the car on the track a few times during his ownership.
My brother purchased the car in 2012 from Gary and sent it to Automobile Assocates of Canton in CT to recommission it for track use. They replaced all of the brake systems, rebuilt the carbs, redid the suspension etc (a $7500 service). At that time, new seats (Kirkey full containment seat for the driver and an Intermediate Road Race seat for the passenger). A new shifter and all of the bushings in the linkages were renewed. New Minilite wheels were bought and the 8" Fuchs from the rear of the car were refinished and moved to the front. Later that summer, a custom, noise compliant muffler was fabricated for Lime Rock sound restrictions.
My brother used the car for de's for the next few years and life bought up with him. He is reluctantly selling the car.

Thanks for the kind works folks.
The car is a great change from the hordes of newer cars that you see at the track these days. It has no driver assists. This is the type of car that will help you to be a better driver.
