Personally I wouldnt buy a car that needed that much work unless it was a parts car for something else. Way to many good rolling chassis in California to consider this kind of work.

Case in point, This one is 1k..

Good morning, thanks for the response. Good advice for sure, but the car I am looking at is otherwise complete and runs. Balancing that against, for example, that purple shell with flares that are not to my personal taste.

If a rough ballpark for replacing the front clip is lower than bring that purple shell to same running condition that impacts my thinking. Make sense?

They are all ultimately expensive. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/evilgrin.gif)

Thanks!


Is this the white 914 that has been floating around online for sale for awhile?



I think I know that car as well if it is the one in San Gabriel! Depending on where you look it is currently listed at $6,500 and $4,500 simultaneously.

If so that car has been for sale since April at least if not longer.

I wouldn’t pay more than $1-2k for a car that needed a front clip.

I agree with mepstein. They always need more work than you think.

Two points
1. If this is not a six or LE ------RUN ! It is not worth the agony....It will be expensive and there will be more damage as already stated. .
2. Chassis needs to be measured to determine if it has been tweaked ( as someone so aptly suggested) . That requires real skill and technical information
As a friend once said " this car for free would be expensive"
Good luck
