    Reliable shop for PPI near Peoria, IL and opinions wanted


    I am considering this car, it would be my first long hood.

    I would like to know if there is a trustworthy shop in the Peoria area to have this car checked out.

    I'd also like any opinions on this car.

    Can't help on the shop for a PPI, but I would definitely get one for this car. From the photos, I can see the following:
    • Incorrect steering wheel
    • Incorrect radio
    • Aluminum decklid was not available in '67, but it's a valuable part
    • Square weave carpet is not correct for an S

    I'm sure others will pipe in. This car may have already been discussed here- I've seen it on eBay before.

    Good luck- let us know what happens.

    Hey Peter,

    Peter from Chicago here. I would put a call into Brad Mayeur. He is in Peoria and is VERY well known in the 914 circles. I actually talked to him 2 weeks ago about a car here in Chicago that he was interested in. Great guy, easy going and I am sure he would be highly qualified to do a PPI for you. He has advertisements in all the Porsche mags as well, but, here is his info.
