1973 Model

1973 Porsche 914 engine size and color decoding?

I currently own a 1973 model year Porsche 914 finished in Summer Yellow, California car. How can i be sure for the engine size as for the year it came with 1.7 and 2.0 for the California market. And how can i find out whether the color is correct? Thanks

Assuming your engine is still equipped with the original fuel injection system, a superficial way to determine what type of engine you have installed is looking at the air filter. The 2.0-liter has a large, almost rectangular metal air filter box. The air filter for the 1.7-liter engine is smaller and rounded.

The best way to determine the size of your engine is looking at the engine number. In the 1.7-liter engine, the number is located in the right half of the engine case towards the rear end of the car, under the plenum (for a California model a 1973 engine number should start with the letters EB). In the 2.0-liter engine the number is located towards the front end of the car, by the oil filler tube (a 1973 engine number should start with the letters GA).

You can see pictures pointing at the location of the engine number here:

You can find the original color code on a small plate located on the driver’s door hinge post. I believe Summer Yellow is code L13M

You can fide paint codes here:
