I just picked up a really nice, low milage 914-6 and was pleasantly surprised to find that it has OEM sway bars on it. I'm wondering if anyone knows if the factory shipped any 914-6's with sway bars or were they installed at the dealerships or ??

look and see if the rear swaybar mounts were welded in after the car left the factory. you should be able to see if the welds & support bracket in the rear trunk is under the factory paint or if they were welded in later and touchup paint added on top.

that is, of course, if the car still has the original paint!

otherwise, post a picture of the rear trunk floor, right behind the cross-bar and we'll be able to tell you if the support plates are stock or aftermarket ...

PS: what's the VIN ???

i've never seen a /6 with factory antiroll bars, but it was possible to special-order almost anything. (and i do not claim to have seen them all.) i'd guess a front bar might accompany the M471 option but i'm not going to go look through Johnson right now...

all the factory /6's i've seen did have the tabs, tho, for front bars.
i've never seen an original factory /6 with a factory rear bar; neither of mine did, and none of the bunch of 6 or 8 i was classed with in Zone 8 events did.

the Johnson doesn't say anything about antiroll bars at the M471, but DGVWPB says that antiroll bars (front and rear together) were optional at the M471

then I reviewed my prize lists (1970 & 1971) - there were no antiroll bars available at the standard /6

so it's very likely that the M404 option was available later (at least from 1973 on)

Hey SLITS, I'm keeping them all! He who dies with the most 914's wins. In case of a tie, the winner is the one with the most spare parts. New parts taking precedence over used. So as not to remove a good 914 from the remaining fleet left in the world, I have asked to be burried in a rusted out 914. Why do you think I'm holding on to the Flintsone 6?!

The six I just bought is VIN 9140430671. It's white with black upholstery. I checked inside the rear trunk and I didn't see any supports for the rear sway bar. Makes me think it was done at the dealership or by a previous owner. I'll post some pics tomorrow.

Here are some images I took...not the greatest,but......

Glenn gave me a ride (I refuse to drive other people's cars). Nice smooth power....NICE SOUND....supposedly a 2.0 with 911L pistons for higher compression. Tailshifter shifts like butter with no grinds. Handles really well with the sway bars and no there are no weld plates in the trunk. Only minor paint flaws and couple of rips in the seats....powdercoated engine sheetmetal....completely redone engine compartment....completely original with the super rare passenger foot rest (yes I used it). I am more than jealous......but a 22K, a lot more than I can handle.

I'd be more than happy if I could buy such a good /6 for USD 22k (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/dry.gif)

In Austria or Germany they ask for about EUR 25k for such a car (that's about USD 32k) - and they get it (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/blink.gif)

I really didn't want to put my feet on it, but Glenn insisted I use it. It is one sweet running car.

Glenn has indicated he wanted to become more active with the SoCal Group. So to help him along, I will inform him of the events and bought him a butt plug for safety.
