About 6", cut the floor down like the VW pan on a dune buggy.

But the VW bug has a back seat! 6" is a lot to loose, especially if you're tall.

Mod a CFR rear trail arm lower kit and move it forward (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)
Impossible to know with a trial fitting.

I'd be more concerned to see if the front struts will fit. I know they won't fit on a RSK kit.

The RSK kit that I saw they used the front end of a bug and 914 in the rear, total custom tube chassis.
To me, if you run into the same issue, this might be a waste of a perfectly good 914 tub.

Luckily for everyone I am doing a mock-up on a 914 I paid $300 for years ago, long before I start cutting on this one. I am doing to dry fit everything to the first chassis, this way I make all the bad cuts on the one that doesn't matter.
I don't think anyone will shed a tear over the center seat monster getting sliced and diced. That car has been sitting at the old warehouse for about 7 years, I couldn't bring myself to get rid of it, and now I'm glad I didn't.

Seems like after slicing and dicing a race-prepped chassis (removing 6" from wheelbase and/or changing susp. geometry) that has been successfully tested, balanced and raced, you'll be starting all over again. But then again, if you just plan to take it back to VW roots and cruise between stop lights, then go for it. It's your ride.

Sorry to butt in, but.....

I also agree with Glenn. Authentic vintage race cars have potential dollar value and nostalgia value for the entire community. Your frankenstein car may come out to be very cool, but will have value only to you.

I have seen a lot of well built 914 track/race cars sell in the recent past with no provenance, why not start with one of those?? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

I would have, except all the guys with recent builds wanted $25,000-50,000, I picked this car up for $15,000. I also got a lot of guys with half built 914/6 conversions wanting over $20,000. This car represented the best value.

This car was not my first choice, I really wanted an older six conversion that needed cosmetics, but none could be found. I then started looking at race cars and like I said, anything built recently was 2-3 times the money.

If anyone wants to trade their six conversion for this car, I am all ears.

This car has not seen a track since about 2005, I will return it to driving. The last owner did not drive it, not once. It was also for sale on ebay for a long long time, so anyone who was interested had a chance to buy it. Like I said, this was not my first choice but there was nothing anywhere near the price, not for what I got, a carbed 3.2, with a sequential gearbox.
@gms, are you showing me what a 904 frame looks like? That's great but if I fabbed that up and built it, then it's not a Porsche. If I build this car, it's a Porsche.
