We have been commissioned to build a 914-6 GT 2.5L Jagermeister Tribute race car for Vintage racing here in the US, Look for this running on the East Coast!
In 1970, Porsche entered a 914-6 with the factory's GT option in the grueling 24 Hours of Le Mans race. The car, identified as #40, was driven by Claude Ballot-Léna and Guy Chasseuil. It finished 6th overall, preceded only by prototype racecars like the V12 Ferrari 512S and Flat-12 Porsche 917K. In addition, the #40 won its class ahead of several Porsche 911S entries.
914-6s also competed in some of the most important race competitions of its era, e.g. Targa Florio with Brian Redman, Monte Carlo Rally and Daytona International Speedway. Walt Maas successfully campaigned a 914-6 "GT" in the IMSA race series.
Here the chassis has been sprayed out in DuPont white DTM primer, and seam sealed ready for the Imron Orange top coat. This must be re-coated with top coat within 18 to 24 hours to follow proper application guidelines to ensure the best adhesion!

The 2.5L is trimmed out with our twin plug distributor & wires, 46mm PMO carbs. We pre-fitted the engine tins, and they are off getting powder coated.
The 16 quart oil tank & cooler system is fitted, along with our dual master cyl hyd. feed and single hyd. clutch master feed. The final fit will be the dual 4" oil cooler exhaust feeds.
