914World.com _ FS/WANTED: 914 Cars and Rollers _ Just drove that white 914/6 3.0 L car in Newport

Posted by: Tdskip Dec 1 2019, 03:59 PM

Went to go look at this under the theory that buying one complete is cheaper than building it, and it’s a ripsnorter of a car. The guy who owns it, Joe, is a good guy and he’s got a good history on the car. Engine and gearbox seem really healthy.

It’s too high adrenaline for me, at least as it’s currently set up, the Webers and the exhaust that are on it are a bit too aggressive for what I’m looking to build, but if you want something to wake you up and be aggressive with this might be a good one.

My understanding is that it is a salvage title car, apparently there was a front hit back in the 90s that was repaired. The seller was completely straightforward about it when I stop by to see the car and helped me locate where the repair was done .

Looks like a nice car.. I am going to let you in on a little secret.. The reason I sold my last 914-6 was because it was loud with no heat.. That is why I started doing what I do now.. Creature comforts in my book are heat, and quiet mufflers..

Posted by: eric9144 Dec 3 2019, 02:01 PM

Bummer for the salvage title dry.gif Otherwise I'd probably have been all over this one.
All of the other stuff could be addressed over time, but the title thing will always be a cloud that affects value.

Posted by: Justinp71 Dec 4 2019, 01:30 PM

If he has the stock CIS pistons in the car still you can convert it to CIS. Which isn't too hard but it will take finding a nice CIS system and some homework.

Also I think if you just put on a stock 911 air cleaner and one of Ben's new quiet mufflers it should tame it down quite a bit with some easy parts swapping.

I like it loud, when I went from CIS to webers I was in love... wub.gif

Dont let the salvaged title scare you.
If you like it, buy it. Drive the hell out of it and enjoy.
Looks like a nice car to me.

I was considering this car however the salvage title turned me away. I think it is a good build and as the seller said, you will be hard-pressed to find a better canyon carver. But remember the car you buy today might be the car you have to sell in the future and that salvage title might be a black cloud. I have found salvage cars always have a story as to why they were salvaged.

$27,500 is cheap?

Posted by: Tdskip Dec 5 2019, 09:03 AM

I have no financial interest in this car, but I would suggest that asking and selling price may be significantly different with this one. I’d just pick up the phone and call him, seems like a good guy and I think he’s motivated .

For a good running conversion. Yes. Try to have one built for that price.

By no means am I questioning the sellers character, in fact I applaud him for disclosing that the car has salvage title, and I think we all know it is more cost-effective to find a complete car then it is to try to go out and do it on your own. if he’s motivated to sell he should put a motivated price. If somebody’s looking for a car like this and sees a price at $27,500 but only has a $22,000 budget chances are they’re going to say there’s too much of a spread and the seller won’t come down that low and will look elsewhere.

Its a $20k motor... Your getting a hell of a lot of car for 27500...

Conversion 6's are probably the best bang for the buck Porsches on the market.

agree.gif I'm surprised it's still available.

Posted by: roblav1 Dec 5 2019, 05:35 PM

Agree... $27.5k is a good deal. I'm building one now and am way over that already. My engine alone is $25k.

I can attest to that, as well. Mine's not a conversion nor did it require major restoration, but the expenses racked up in a big hurry.

What does this car use for extra oil cooling?

I have a message in but no word back

DITTO!!! The CIS will give you the gas mileage(?) but there is nothing like the sound of gasoline being fed into the venturies beer3.gif

Posted by: matthepcat Dec 10 2019, 11:10 AM

I would take off the carbs and run a megasquirt based ITB set up. No way would I go back to CIS. Somthing like this: https://www.x-faktory.com/store/c6/EFI.html

I bought a used Cayman as a salvage title. It was hit in the front and the insurance company bought it. 60 k on the clock and for an 06 I've had more fun in it for the last two years.

I considered building a -6 for my 914 before I bought the Cayman. I got a stealer deal on the Cayman because of the title.

To build a car like this would cost twice as much as the asking price. The motor alone is over 20k.

If the ask is 27k and everything checks out that is a killer deal.

If I had space in my garage I'd get it.

Going down now to CK it out. Joe is a nice guy on the phone.

I will let you all know.

Joe had a lot of nice cars over at his place. On to the 914-6 3.0 conversation. Work was done at Mario and dads shop in the San Fernando Valley. The body was not that bad from the front hit back in the day that made it a salvage Pink.
The car had an AC with its 2.0 and the condenser was removed and a piece of steel was welded in but not a replacement panel. The car looks pretty right in the front in the trunk and there are only some small gap difference in the front hood and flip up lights but not that bad.
The car has a Carrera front end and someone put vented disks on rear and spaced out the 914-4 rear calipers for ebrake that works fine. The car has Webbers 40s and at this time does nor idle well and needs some tuning but the car also did not have filters on the Webbers and it is very loud. That and the GT twin exhaust pipe in the center of rear of muffler. Very loud. No extra oil cooling but he has a GT engine lid that does not pop up because it has no springs on it.

The engine looks super clean from the bottom. Jo says it only has a couple of hundred miles on the Eng. and trans was just rebuilt and worked well. The throttle is not smooth at all and this make the car in this state hard to drive smooth. Car has 7in Fuchs all around and is lowered a bit and scrapes the tires when going down or up a driveway at slow speed. Rear lips are not rolled. Paint is older but very shinny and a nice body.
Steering wheel wiggles up and down a little and buy the way you have to yell to he heard by your passenger.

Headers not heat exchangers and as I said very loud.

My 6 at PMB better not be this loud or I will need to rethink it.

If a guy got it at the right price he could do a bit of work to it to get it very nice but way more than my buddie is looking for.

Thanks for the report - I have a loud 912 now so the wife would not like another one, haha. Still tempting but need to figure how much it will take to make it a good fun driver.
