This meticulously prepared Porsche 914/6 GT was sold new in the United States of America as a 914/4 road car in 1970. The Porsche was converted to a race car in 1972, and raced in countless SCCA events across the USA by several owner-drivers. The previous owner, who bought the car in 2005 had the car and its engine completely rebuilt to 914/6 GT IMSA GTU specification by renowned 914 specialists Aircooled Racing from Wellsville, PA. Aircooled Racing has over four decades history having built several turn key racing 914’s, both with 4 and 6 cylinder as well as 911s with various size engines.
Originally built to SVRA Group-8 standards, this Porsche’s engine was upgraded to 2.7-litre by Aircooled Racing in February 2013, because its owner wanted to move up to the faster SVRA Group 10. The Car was raced in historic events (SVRA, HSR and VRG) until 2014, achieving pole positions, fastest laps and race wins in both sprint and endurance race. The car was sold by Dr. Wetzel to its current owner in December 2014. Very detailed documentation on the works done is available upon request.
