I just came here to post this.

I want to say “yikes” but I still want it in my driveway. There have been worse offered for more.

Thanks Jeff. I knew I had seen that car somewhere before.

Maybe cheap to get into......not so cheap to bring back.
Bring money, talent and time.
Restored is best.

Posted by: Unobtanium-inc Jul 30 2020, 07:48 PM

What would make this car cool would be a big six motor and some flares, make a real monster, and in the end it would be a real six, so could justify the money you put into it. Depending on how cheap it sells for.

OK, who did this conversion????!!!

Having Owning one of these Chaton kit ... I don't think its a TRUE -6 .. I think the seller thinks he has a 6 because of the extra parts .. But mine has the same Parts... Still Dosen't make it a 6 .. Why would he put in the ad 2.0 ?? Strange ... Plus No Engine or Trans .. confused24.gif

Would be interesting to find out if it was that same cover car all these years later !

Posted by: flyer86d Jul 31 2020, 02:10 AM

I saw this car earlier this week. It is a real -6 and it is very rust free. It needs four fenders and the damaged rear panel replaced. I think he is including a replacement rear panel. The original fenders were removed where they normally attach. It had a seized 3.2 in it when Matt bought it and the -6 serial are all present and accounted for as well as the Karmen body number in front of the rear trunk latch. Somebody save it. I have one and don’t need two at this time.

The flat sixes equipped on the 914 six was a 2.0l sourced from a 911T. So the ad is accurate.

Posted by: Cairo94507 Jul 31 2020, 06:34 AM

See, that is why I love this site. Someone asks a question because they are unfamiliar with what makes a real Six and members take the time to explain why it is in fact a Six. Everyone learns in the process. On most other car forums the fur would have been flying. Civility wins the day. beerchug.gif

Posted by: bbrock Jul 31 2020, 07:39 AM

If I wasn't suffering from restoration fatigue already and had more shop space, I'd bid on this. Looks like a great project and probably the only way I could ever afford a real six. Somebody should get it.

My mental process right now...


idea.gif I have an original six motor in pieces in the garage, I have the guts of a six transmission with the right gear ratios... idea.gif

chair.gif STOP IT! You already have a real six... This one would take loads of body work to be brought back to stock chair.gif

happy11.gif But it is a real six. It needs saved! happy11.gif

slap.gif You are not a body man.. this would require a LOT of money and time to fix slap.gif

hissyfit.gif BUT IT IS A REAL SIX!!!!! hissyfit.gif

screwy.gif You haven't even finished your big six conversion, your current real six, and your BMW. Plus you have to get Betty's car back up and running, and you want to buy a 914 race car. screwy.gif

For the last 10 years I held onto two original 6 motors, thinking a roller would come along. Finally about a year ago I said enough, put both motors in different early 911's and off they went. Then this pops up, a couple of hours away. It's always the way it is, if you have it, you don't need it, if you need it, you don't have it.

Posted by: JmuRiz Jul 31 2020, 09:16 AM

Posted by: gandalf_025 Jul 31 2020, 09:22 AM

It would seem to me that replacing 4 fenders
would be a whole lot easier than replacing rusted out
or crash damaged structure..
If the car isn’t rusty, I’ve seen WAY worse saved..
Looks like 99% of the six stuff is still with the car.
Anyone looking for a six project, knowing it
won’t be numbers matching probably could buy a lot worse..

The only problem with that was the two six motors I have, I paid $500 each for them. I'm assuming yours isn't $500.

Nope. And it is disassembled too. I have all the pieces, but it has to be rebuilt.

Right so my situation is I had a longblock in the corner that I paid $500 for, see a six roller come by, grab it, throw the motor in, throw some Zenith's on there, and you have a car. Which is a good spot to sell a car. Your plan would work fine if I was hoping to build a six for myself. Get the roller at a decent price, get the motor bits from you, get the motor built, and have a cool car. You can see the dilemma.

Posted by: gandalf_025 Jul 31 2020, 10:48 AM

Why would any of you people want an original 6 motor..::???
All I see is that they are a lump and slow and not worth dealing with
if they aren’t matching #. Seems like a contradiction...??

It's great to see how many of us still have the old VW & Porsche mags . I still have the 1960s issue of Dune Buggies and Hot VWs That has the plans for the first "Formcar" Formula V when Brundage first invented the Class. Interesting to see how many of us first got this infection. Al

Posted by: flyer86d Jul 31 2020, 12:24 PM

If it didn’t sell, Matt still has it. Call Retro Automotive in Claremont, NH and make him an offer. It’s a real -6 and one of us should save it. I won’t live long enough to finish it as it would get in line behind my 356 Roadster and my 914-6.

Charlie

Posted by: Superhawk996 Jul 31 2020, 12:28 PM

That's right around what I'd be willing to go to. For the right affecianado, I thought it might jump to $17K-$20K based on the other flamed out wreck that has been offered up a couple times in the past.

Hard to tell what reserve was. Could be completely irrational like $50k confused24.gif who knows.

Posted by: Unobtanium-inc Jul 31 2020, 01:22 PM

That bidding seems about right for a roller needing complete bodywork. The wrecked one that keeps popping up is at least matching numbers with motor and gearbox. This one will always be a pig in a poke, maybe a cool one, but will never command top money.

I wonder what his reserve was?

Posted by: framos914 Jul 31 2020, 02:52 PM

Yup, would be nice to know the reserve price.

The other 6 last week that needed a crane to remove from back yard must have been fake.

Posted by: Cairo94507 Jul 31 2020, 03:51 PM

Call me crazy, but it's at about the max I would pay given what it needs and what it does not come with. I hope someone here grabs it and does it justice by returning the body to a stock or GT body. beerchug.gif

It is crazy what people ask for an original 914/6 engine! if it is not original (even one number off) it is still a none matching engine and you have added nothing to the value of the car...why not put something with more HP.

Judging from the prices on some of his other Porsche items for sale, i think it's safe to say his reserve was much, much, much higher than $10k.

Yes most like likely but have dealt with him before his stuff is top notch,I do find his 914 parts are somewhat "up there".
First purchase was 911 internal handbrake parts for one side,he included a set of "wear parts for the other side for free ,like $50 which I thought was fair and parts came beadblasted…..just saying.
No rust in the shell good but I assumed these kits required bastardization to fit the glass panels ? if so the repair work and replacement steel panels could be rather spendy also.

What I don't Understand is that I have always been told from the Purist is that the Chalon's kits on a 914 are and you have a piece of shit because it NOT an original stock car .. Mine looks the Same as this one just a different color and 2.0 eng And I'm being told it's a piece of shit .. BUT Now someone has put a Chalon kit on a six and these guys are all getting moist and talking a different tune .. How is that ??? Don't see the Numbers of what it is going down the street .. Nor do you know what engine is in it .. All I see is all the 914 Chalon kit cars all look the same no Matter What the VIN # is .. So I'm a little Confused ..

If it's cheap enough you can pull off the kit and restore to stock.

All I see is all the 914 Chalon kit cars all look the same no Matter What the VIN # is .. So I'm a little Confused ..


@http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showuser=19055

Porsche 914/4 -- maybe worth $40-50K on high end for a nice conversion with a six.

Very original Porsche 914/4 with something like 5,000 original DOCUMENTED miles in stellar condition went for $90K at auction recently but every mile it is ever driven results in MASSIVE depreciation since the value was in the low milage.

914/6's regularly going for over $100K even for those that are not original and/or restored to a decent standard. A real 914/6 GT with race history recently went over $900K.

Simple math. Has nothing to do with the Chalon kit. Whoever buys will strip the Chalon kit and put back to some sort of 914/6 configuration. Depending on on the reserve price and how the work is done (DIY or professional restoration), it could be a smoking deal or a money pit that barely breaks even.

Based on the flamed out wreck with matching VIN's that hasn't sold, it seems that the value of the 914/6 VIN alone is somewhere above $10K and below $17K. In my mind car this could be higher since the start from point is so much better than with the flamed wreck.

My beef is .. a modified 914 is a Modified Car no matter how it's been modified some more then others .. No matter how some guys want to justify it or call what you (mine) a stromberg.gif .. Bottom line is that these cars are 40+ years old and ALL need help in some way sawzall-smiley.gif welder.gif smash.gif .. I remember stirthepot.gif years ago on this subject when I went from 911's to 914's .. Which in the 911world a 914 is stromberg.gif
I have learn otherwise .. smile.gif

Ultimately it doesn't matter what you or I think.

Free market price is set by the price a voluntary buyer is willing to pay to a voluntary seller.

Well at least your were able to finally see that the 914 is by far the superior platform. dry.gif lol-2.gif and came over from the dark side. Nothing wrong with a Chalon in my book, I used to desperatly want one in the late 80's early 90's. My tastes just changed with time and now I prefer the GT look but hold nothing against Chalons. beerchug.gif

agree.gif Superhawk ...

I see the Chalon kit on a 914 is like the Slantnose on a 911 or (930)
or Widebody Slantnose 914 .. lol-2.gif
