My 1976 2.0 with 24,500 miles: This front trunk is original with the exception of the amp put in by the P.O. (see story below).

View with trunk tray in place:

The amp has a funny story behind it. This isn't just some dumb kid who cut up half the car for bigger speakers, the first owner actually fitted a CB radio. Apart from this highly visible amp the setup is actually very discreet and nicely done, I even found a bsiness card from the CB radio place in southern California that did it, most likely in the late seventies. The setup comes with the amp, a late seventies Motorola radio (the car apparently had a Becker Mexico, which came in a box when I bought it) and the CB handheld mike which mounts tastefully onto the middle console in the passenger footwell. I can't test this setup until the motorized antenna works again, unfortunately.

View with the trunk tray removed into the spare tire well:

I didn't know it myself until I went out and just disconnected one of them and switched on the foglights. With the big old rubber bumper you can't even put your hand behind there and feel along.

On early cars ( I don't know when the factory changed it), there is a threaded installation point near the leading edge of the trunk. The first photo in this thread shows the installation point. There is another one on the driver's side as well, with the threaded hole empty. After reading your post, I looked at Pat Garvey's front trunk and didn't see any tow hook installation points in his '72. That's probably explains why he shows his tow hook with his tool kit, as later cars didn't have the interior installation points for the aforementioned hook. I wonder if '71s have this tow hook mounting point?

Nope! I usually keep it with the tool kit, because that's where it was displayed in the "olden days" of concours, plus it's not susceptible to being banged when removing the spare, rendering it bent.

Attached photo shows correct placement ina late '72. This does bring up the question of just when (if ever) it was moved to the tool bag.

Very nice!

Note to the newbies and/or uninformed - major change here with the fuels evaporator tank & note the charcoal canister is gone from the front. Other little things too.

I thought those were suspension pickup points...hmm.

Here is a early 70 that just needs a bit of cleaning up for a show. 150K miles and off the road since 1982.

Nonetheless, an extremely nice 914! Color's not bad either, cause it's close to red!

Hi Guys,

Just crawling back from (6) days of baby sitting our (2) grandchildren (boys 1-1/2 & 4-1/2 yrs.) Lynda & I are bone tired. It will be another week before things are back to normal.

Just wanted to show details of my 1974 front trunk. I'll take more detailed photo's & post later next week.

Tom

Hi there...I noticed a 'drain hose' on your brake fluid resevoir??
Was that OEM on your model year?? (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)
