I just picked this 72 up in Tennesee.
She has a V8 COnversion
(sorry not a true 914)
But truly fun to drive
Just looking for some advice please
She came with 916 GT bumpers and a flare kit
I'm leaning toward selling these and buying standard 72 front and rear bumpers
Could anyone tell me how much can I expect from selling these?
Also advice on keeping the bumpers?
cut re-glass flush with fenders??
Thank you for buying that car.
Been eyeing it up on Craigslist the past couple of weeks.
You may have saved my marriage!
Love the color combo.
Are the flares fiberglass or metal?
Congrats! I've seen that car a few times on Craigslist in the AL/TN area in the last couple years. I've always thought it looked really nice....especially like the wheels, don't know what kind they are, but they look great!
The rear is lifted to clear the tires? OMG, stop the redneck madness. Glad you are getting a grip on this project. Lose all the stupid afterbits and make this car right again.
Any advice on the bumpers would be great
Keep or sell?
cut and re-glass in line with body?
It has single stage on it but its in bad shape
updated pics into and album
hope it works this time
i think it is working now!
Your pictures are working now.
I think you should sell the front and rear 916 glass and buy some stock bumpers. I think they look the best without the flares on.
You would need to cut and fill the glass now and that would be a lot of work and it would not be as easy to sell the glass bumpers later if you wanted to after you shorten them for the fit without flairs.
A lot of guys like the 916 look but you would have to put the flares on. In the end what do your want? Do you like the look of 916? Add up just how much it will cost you to do it. I had a Black 74 914-8 car with a 916 body in glass on it and a lot of people liked it.
I bought it to sell it.
Thanks for the advice
I do have the kit for sale
I hope to get enough to buy standard bumpers
That front bumper looks to be the correct shape and not a cheap knock off. Are there any part numbers on it?
That is a good question
I will jack the car up and take a look underneath
Agree with above, that car looks great! I'd go with some stock or fiberglass stock-look bumpers. Looks like that 916 rear is for a flared car.
Thanks for the advice everyone
I just sold the flares and have re-listed the bumpers
