1971 Porsche 914 Barn Find OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE TO BENEFIT THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY




Description:

Fresh from long barn storage, this 1971 Porsche 914 was recently rescued by Joe Battista, a long-time Porsche enthusiast, who was helping a widow clean out her late husband's things.

Jeff Greenberg purchased his dream car in 1973. Later that year at his 5 year High School Class Reunion, he met his future wife. That same night they had their first date in his new car. When she asked how he could afford a Porsche, he responded he barely could. Jeff's wife can't recall exactly the trouble the 914 was having, but in 1978 when the couple moved to the country the car was towed into the barn. Because Jeff was a hard worker, an expert sailor and pilot, the car was forgotten. Jeff fought a long hard battle with lung cancer and lost the battle in November 2011, at age 60. When Jeff's widow decided to sell the farm she needed the car out of the barn. Her realtor put her in contact with local businessman and Porsche enthusiast, Joe Battista. Joe purchased the car for $100. Joe, not sure at the time how he would get the car out of the barn or what he would do with it, promised he would donate any money he received for the car to cancer research. With the help of several good people who all donated their time the car is at auction today.

While perusing Jesse Mortensen's 'Barn Finds' website, we came across this and offered Joe a spot across our auction block without charge. Joe and his friends put some tires on it and freed up the brakes so that it would roll. Glenmoor Gathering sponsor Passport Transport offered to provide half the cost of transportation of the car to the auction, (we are still seeking another sponsor for the remaining amount).

All proceeds from this sale benefit the American Cancer Society. Your bids are tax-deductible, there is no commission charged by us.
