1973 Porsche 914-6 | GT Tribute

1960 Volkswagen Panel Bus

Before

“Want a free 914?” Um, who would possibly say no to that question? That’s how this 1973 914-6 GT Tribute restoration started when our client’s dad offered it to him. It belonged to his dad’s friend, who passed away. Our client was all in. Not only would this be a great tribute to a family friend, it would also be a scary-fast, handle-like-it’s-on-rails fast… fast enough to race on the track. Or, to turn heads on the street. There was lots of work ahead.
