What is something like that worth? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif)

Hard to say for certain, which is part of why I plan to sell at auction. In general, early rigs are popular, and the factory soft top models are rare. The factory winch is a plus as well. Best guess is $30k+, probably mid-to-upper 30s.

I also mfg. these 6 into 1 tuned headers for the vintage fj40 if your cast iron manifold is in need of replacement (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welder.gif)
Get the 914World discount as well (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I didn't need those for this one, but that looks nice. Are you advertising them anywhere in the LC community?

QUOTE(914_7T3 @ Nov 2 2018, 08:32 PM) *

@Arne Here is a nice ‘68 available in the LA area!

Like the 914 before it, no telling when/if I'd do another one. If I did, I'd certainly start with a more needy example than that one!

Yes, the color is a big part of the attractiveness. It IS a correct period Toyota color, but one that is rarely seen. It is a big part of what makes this rig stand out from all the beige Land Cruisers of the world.

I hope not, I'd like to think it sees at least a little gentle use in the future.

Well, just like the 914 before it, I'll need to sell it before I can move on to something new. But I'm not going to sell it for a big loss, that's what reserves are for.

Trying not to get my expectations too high, but I think it will do well also, Jamie.

Auction over, and it is sold (pending payment, of course). I feel I did OK. Thought it might have pulled a bit more than it did, but I had carefully set the reserve at a price I could live with, and it cleared it, so it's all fine.

Search for the next project can begin in earnest now. Ideal project would be a LWB long hood 911 in an interesting color. But even though prices have softened some on those, they may all still be outside my budget. So other vehicles will also need to be considered.

OK, I punted on the "interesting color" part. Currently "chalky red", neé Silbermetallic.

1972 911T coupe. 2.4 MFI, 5 speed. Original spec was Fuchs, F&R sway bars, Appearance Group and factory A/C. No sunroof, crank windows.

Plan is for mostly stock, but with better seats. Definitely back to original silver. It will replace the '84 Carrera as my "keeper". Seller is doing a front pan replacement on it now, then it will be shipped here to Oregon. 4-6 weeks away, I'm guessing.

Yes. As a long wheelbase, no-sunroof '72 with the forward mounted oil tank, this car is probably one of the best balanced 911 versions ever. Stuff some wider tires in the rear and enjoy.

Wonder where I can find a pair of 7R wheels that look like flat sixes?

They make reproduction 7R wheels but I'm pretty sure they look like deep sixes.

I'm going to need to buy at least a pair of wheels at some point in the project. Two are original, but the other pair are repro, and the spare is MIA.

But yeah, to get a pair of 7Rs that matched the front flat sixes I suspect I'd need to have Harvey weld me up a pair. Probably not going to happen. Finding flat sixes isn't all that hard, even if I want the early ones that use the 3-ear caps. But waiting to get to the front of Harvey's queue for weld-ups just so I can buy expensive and hard to find wide rear 15" tires doesn't make a lot of sense. I've got more important fish to fry.
