This story begins with the car being delivered to Porsche of Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA. The comprehensive accompanying history file notes that the final US owner was Mr. Ewbank, who as a younger man had been a test driver for Porsche USA. The plan was to completely restore the 914 but ill health prevented him, and his wife ended up selling the car. 
 
RRT 141M was first registered in the UK in 1996 and owned by a Mr. O‚ÄôRourke and his family for the next 12 years. It was under the ownership of the next owner, a Mr. Nie, that the Porsche finally got the restoration it was promised including 
a full bare-metal respray in its original seventies colour of Sunflower Yellow.  
 
The works included a new interior, new wiring harness and new upgraded (1974-stamped) alloys. There are receipts detailing all the other work undertaken in the truly impressive history files which also includes a full photographic record of the renovation.  
An enormous amount was spent at 'Raw Speed' engine builders to increase the capacity to 2000cc but retain the original engine number (013124). Further mechanical works have been completed by Williams Crawford and Roger Bray Restorations and full details of this are in the file alongside multiple invoices, two magazine features and a full album of photographs.
