That is a lot of car and a great car. Not a fan of the 916 bumpers, etc., but that is easily remedied. I would definitely buy that car assuming it all checks out in person.

Interesting. Not liking the front end though. But A/C and "Loudspeaker in front" listed on the CoA is a new one to me.

Don't see any controls for A/C or ventilation. Obviously no heat either.

Unless the compressor and underdash AC vents were added after the pics were taken,
I don’t see any signs of AC and obviously there is no heat if running headers. I always worry when dealers list cars without much knowledge about the cars.

I remember that car from years ago, the guy really thought he had something and was valuing it on par with the 916s!!!! Of course a 72 914-6 is a very rare animal in itself with only 260 made and never exported

Nice car. I wonder how much to get the regular 914 on the front? I know it must be a lot cheaper to make then flush than go back to original.

Won't pass inspection in most states with the lights in the front bumper.


Antique vehicles, which this certainly qualifies for, don't have to be inspected in VA.
Still need to be roadworthy.

I think the front end looks like hell but to each his own.

The picture of the vin number is an old one with white paint. Also the picture of the inner front wing in bare metal looks to have a weld line running vertically up it...???

As for the front oil cooler you'll never see one done this well every day. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/pray.gif)

A lot of times, 916 bumpers are used when a car gets hit. That was also a common reason for chalon and other types of body kits. The “slope nose” could have been done due to a hit. Who knows what’s been grafted on that car. We’ve repaired lots of cars that were “professionally done”. Look at Cairo’s car. It’s getting a restoration to fix the “restoration”.

You are correct, Chuck Goldsborough thought it was more than it was and it did sell for close to $40k 12 years ago with fuched up paint and the ugliest interior on the planet

it's behind my 911

I am not a fan of the 916's but I actually like the car...the interior leaves more to be desired than the exterior (to me of course). The drive-train is impressive...

Weren't those front end conversions done in Germany back in the day?


Glockler - 9140431258 Greg Fullmer's car - sold for very big money

Attached Image

p.s. - my car has an original 916 front bumper - factory sourced - so - some of ya don't like 'em - c'est la vie

Attached Image

and, yes, those are the factory rallye GT Cibie-Pallas driving lights - also installed oem at time of Germany build

and this is a factory installed GT front oil cooler - note the crafted flange into which it mounts - that's factory workmanship on display

I’d easily believe the build costs with all the modifications that have been done.

However, that doesn’t always translate to selling price.


a'yup ... too often we've seen that - sometimes the value of the conversion = the separate value of the parts, sans the labor

as my lady says - it's an e-ticket ride at disneyland

some of the recent comments here are relevant
