Description

I recently found a 1974 Porsche 914 Beach Boys Racing Monterey in the middle of no where in Oklahoma and had to rescue this very rare and special car. I have been in contact with the owners of BBR (Beach Boys Racing) in California and they have told me only 109 of these cars were ever made and also that they do still have all the molds to make the parts so you can finish this car 100% or make it run and drive it like it is.
Here is what I know about the history of this car:
The BBR Steal kit was installed in 1996 and the owner put over $25,000 into the car with over $4,000 in wheels and tires alone. In 2005 this car was sold in Mount Dora, Florida for $12,500 to the people I bought the car from that live in Spiro, Oklahoma. The only other history I have on the car is that it last drove in 2009, was last started in 2013 and then was parked in a barn. The car is now being stored in my garage in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
I have personally cleaned the car and gone over it to figure out what all needs to be done to get it back on the road and here is what I've found (Pictures will give a more detailed story):
- Rats have chewed through some of the wiring but the harness can be patched without replacing
- Oil looks really good so no water has been inside the motor
- Rust isn't too bad compared to most Porsche 914s
- The BBR Steal kit was done very very well, gaps look great and only some paint damage is present
- The 17in OZ Racing 5 Lug Wheels look very good and if anything are worth a few thousand alone, high performance tires do hold air and are also in very good shape.
I think with maybe a few days of work this car could be running and driving again, I am just not at a place in my life that I can take on this project. If I had a shop I would never let this car go because I know that I will never see another car like this one and that it will only go up in value.
I have the Clean Oklahoma Title that was issued 5/30/2008, I have the two car ads posted by the Original Owner in Florida, and I have One Key that is a little bent but if you are careful you can bend it straight and have a new key made.
Here is a little bit of my 914 experience:
When I was in 7th grade my Dad found a 1974 Porsche 914 on eBay and ended up buying it for me for my first car and I instantly fell in love with it. In 2007 my 914 blew a fuel line and burnt while I was driving it. In 2008 I bought a 1999 Porsche Boxster with the money I was saving to rebuild my 914. I am 24 now and still have both of those cars and I will never sell my 914. She will be rebuilt one of these days but I don't have the 10k-15k to fix it right now. Porsche 914s will always have a place in my heart.
This 1974 Porsche 914 BBR is the rarest 914 and the rarest car I have ever seen and I know I will never see another one. The only way this BBR will be sold is if I know for sure it is going to a good home.
I DO HAVE A LOT MORE PICTURES OF THIS CAR!!!
