Remaining minor issues:

If you look closely, minor body work needed on inside left front wheel well to make perfect (see picture). Body is perfectly straight with paperwork from Custom Alignment (suspension specialists) in Mountain View, CA.
Jackpoints should be ground off and replaced
Tach bounces sometimes when you have the turn signal on?
No front spare tire (picture of tire in front trunk outdated)
1st gear synchro will need replacing in a year or two.
I'm selling because I need a daily commuter but Bay Area traffic is horrendous and not fun to drive a fast car slow all the time. I also have a new baby and need something with a back seat. I bought in September 2017 and have put about $4,000 in sorting out little issues like full tune up, sticky throttle cable, frozen fuel sender, worn out shift bushings, etc. It now runs as well as you can expect with technology current 45 years ago. Starts no problem, revs happily past redline in a heartbeat, suspension is tight but not punishing, will inspire terror and a stupid smile on your face. Will also confuse all the fast cars you leave in your dust because "it's only a 914?!".
Any questions about the car, please feel free to contact my Porsche mechanic, Bill Eason, of Eason Auto Works: http://www.easonauto.com/ or (510) 420-1262.
Happy to arrange pickup with shipping company of your choice. Good luck.
