Porsche 914/6 Restoration Project at Personalized Autohaus

Our customer Thor B. has gotten a very sweet birthday gift from his wife: a 1970 Porsche 914/6 (without telling him!)  She bought the car from a picture; and lucked out. Thor used to own two other 914s before. The last one he owned broke in half  after going over a speed bump.
The car was modified for track racing and had racing seats and bars. Transforming it back to street car has been a pleasure. The mid-engine two seater 914/6 has great performance and is famous for being very economic (914s get up to 30 miles a gallon).

Engine and Transmission Restorations have been performed by Glenn Roberts Chief Porsche Mechanic at Personalized Autohaus
Headlights got turned back into original pop-up lights

Vehicle is being taken apart by Eric Benner and is getting ready to be painted to original Delphi Metallic Green. 

Personalized Autohaus will pull the engine and transmission and vehicle will be fine-tuned and detailed.  Thor has plans in the future to turn his 914/6  into an electric vehicle once the batteries become more reliable.

 If you have a Porsche you would like to restore or service give us a call at (858) 586-7771 to set up a free consultation with Wayne Baker Porsche factory trained expert and owner of Personalized Autohaus.
