From the Craigslsit add:

The racing set up was professionally done in California
It was raced in California in the 80s
It has 10 in wide Weld aluminum wheels ALL THE WAY AROUND
racing suspension
engine set up with Weber carbs
sport seats.
car is still in storage where it has been for 12 years

Thanks for any input!

I would hazard a guess and say that it wasn't really "set up" for any kind of formal racing. And those don't look like the Weld racing wheels I'm familiar with. A fat-fendered, slop-nose conversion. But doesn't look like it's been built for competition.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif)

Too many heavy parts and no quick release fasteners on the body work.

More pictures might help...interior (cage or hoop? 5 point belts?), what's going on in the front trunk (oil cooler?) etc

Not likely and ex-racer...

Oh, and "sport seats"? From the picture, I can see the back of a stock 914 seat for the driver's position.

I would guess it was a Porsche Owners Club (POC) car. You did not say what size the type 4 engine is but I'd bet it is around a 2.4L and will also have a dry sump installed? The extra wide 4 bolt wheels (as was on my 914 ex-POC) car running clicks allowed you to corner much faster than others. Mine also had a stock 914 seat for the driver that had the side bolsters raised and a center hold cut in the back for shoulder belts. They were also allowed to race with a bolt in roll bar and brace as a cage was not mandatory. If you can see it in person then look for those items.
