If it's something you want it's always worth chasing the car, I've dealt with some real bizarro's and gone to look at cars I was sure were from a fake ad, only to leave with a cool car. My rule is to go look at anything, never send money.

Glad this one worked out for you, cool car!

Car only needs some odds and ends, going to do Spokes LEDs and replace the headlights with newer LED versions. I have hoarded parts in my 30 years of 914 ownership that I hope will find there way to this car and take it to the next level.

Its actually weird to work on a car that doesn't look like its old

It’s a lot of car for sure. I drove an 911T with a 964 engine and that car was a beast. Yours must be a whole ‘nother level of fast. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

Its actually intimidating on some levels, after getting the belts in I went and did a big twisty road loop up around my area and actually managed to scare myself a couple times with that motor. Once when I was making a dog leg left and lifted and got squirrelly, once going too fast into the lead in of a tight corner because it just went too fast too quickly and probably the most surprising, when I dropped the hammer in a big straight that had some gentle up and downs and the car accelerated so fast it felt like I got air from one of the crests on the hills (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

Its super-bike like, you have to be on your toes!

Thanks Andy!! Remarkably the VIN wasn't in the 914world DB so despite his passion for the car the previous owner wasn't on here that I know of, his first name was Craig.

Congrats on what looks like a great buy! Few normally-aspirated cars go like a big six.

Years ago, I was following a friend's 914-6—that looked a lot like yours—with the first 3.6 conversion I'd seen…probably around 1995 or 1996...on our way to the Carlsen swap meet. Approaching the exit from the 92 to the 101, I saw a brand-new 993 C4S (a total spaceship to a 914 driver back then...and king of the hill ahead of the 993 Turbo's debut) flying up behind us. Fast. Cut my 914-4 off with a dive bomb into the exit lane and got all over Ernie's silver 914-6 into the cloverleaf, hunting and weaving all over Ernie's bumper. I smiled, knowing what was about to happen next, given the 914 had similar power (and maybe a bit more) with about 1,000 lbs less weight. When those two hit 101, the 993 C4S guy floored it and crossed 3-4 lanes immediately to the fast lane where he thought be belonged. Trouble was, Ernie was a small silver dot by the time the 993 got all the way over. I couldn't see the 993 driver's face over there in the fast lane from my weezy seats, but his face at the swap meet was priceless when he came over to look at Ernie's car and muttered something to the effect of "what do you have in that thing?" Next time I saw him, he was driving a Ruf. I drove Ernie's 914-6 as a 3.6 and later when it was a 3.8, and it was just super quick. Even Ernie was surprised after he built a Dinan-supercharged E36 M3 and his 914-6 (with me driving) just plain smoked Dinan's newest toy.

Have fun with this—I know you will. They can be a bit intimidating with that much power, but you'll get used to it. That's when to watch out. And have fun!

Pete, totally, also one of the reasons I bought full harnesses.
The fact that its even out there in my garage is so surreal I still can't believe it.

Talked about this cars build with James Patrick several years ago as I wanted to clone my car to match, had to bow out at the 250K number he quoted me. Congrats, amazing this car was in my backyard and I never knew it.

Some times if you whip them (other Car) too hard, it's like they are tied to a fire-hydrant. I've even had to let up a bit and sandbag...just to keep them in the hunt (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

@Coondog watching your build (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drooley.gif) and pricing stuff out I knew that this was a bargain in time as much as it was money. And I'm not surprised no one saw it, I don't think he had it out much around town, the car only has about 7K miles total since the build! I'd guess I saved at least 3 years and a TON of money!

Over the years I have driven stock 4s and 6s, as well as hot rods. The fellow that I bought our 6 from had a 2.9 with 906 cams in his. I’ve ridden with Doug Arneo in his with either a 2.8 or 3.2 race motor, our 911sc track car had a twin plug, short stroke, ge80 cam 3.2 and I have driven 964 and 993 cars as well as a Ruf turbo and a GT3. I cannot imagine that kind of 3.8 power in a lightweight car! You are a lucky man and it must be great to play overdog!

Congrats! That is a beautiful car. And I know the allure of a big six. Betty and I were out in Igor one day, and I had a modern gray 911 pass me and immediately duck in front of me. I was just cruising in 6th gear, so I decided to pass him back. Dropped it to 5th, and put my foot down hard. Igor accelerated hard enough that the 911 driver was surprised. He quickly jumped out into the left lane to catch up, but I kept looking in the rear view mirror at the receding gray dot. The whole time Betty was giggling because she could feel the seat back crowding her really hard.

I slowed down before I got to triple digits, but it was definitely a great feeling.

Take care of that car. It is a treasure.

Clay

What a terrific purchase. I love that car and remember when it was built by PMS. I hope to see it a some events in the near future. Cheers, Michael (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

What a score!

While looking for a converted 914-6, I clicked on that link myself a hundred times. I also thought "scam".

I'd be pinching myself as well. Wow, that is just one sorted 914-6!
