I own a transmission shop in Lancaster, PA and several 911's. I am looking to buy a well sorted 914 conversion powered by Porsche 6, Subaru, or might consider a rotary or GM 6 cylinder. My preference would be a car that is well sorted and running well. I might consider a car with engine out (porsche only), as I have a 3.0 which I built with 964 cam grind, and cam and rockers hardwelded. This was a cost no object build where I invested 10 K in parts and machine work to have a motor thar was better than new. I just never installed it in anything. Let me know your thoughts. I am looking for a 20K or less car, but may have some wiggle room. No $40000 garage queens, please.

Sounds to me like you should build a car with your engine. You'll have a tough time finding a good conversion car with a Porsche engine for less than $20k, but possibly a Suby or Chevy powered car. I don't know how up on current fair market prices you are, but you might want to do some research. Good luck in your search!

20k for a sorted conversion car is going to be tight. No Porsche 6's will fit in that price, Possibly a non turbo subaru or SBC. They pop up every now and then but get snatched up pretty quick. Good luck!

I have several other cars. My brother was driving my 82 SC 6 years ago and there was a fire in the engine bay that damaged harness and other things. I pulled engine and trans, and did a cost no object build on the 3.0. Later, someone made me an offer I couldn't refuse on the Continetal orange tub. I have a 914-4 that is straight in storage and many parts to build a car myself, but at 64 years old and still working, I don't want to start something I won't finish till I'm 70. My brother owns a 930, an 89 SC, and a 78 targa, all immaculate and available for me to use anytime. I just don't want the responsibility of driving someone else's love object. I am flexable in what I invest, but I am looking foe a solid driver, not something to worship. I own a shop, and could do some maintainance, but don't want another car that is can't be driven. I have had my best times driving my old 911 all over the country, to work, and leaving it outside like any other car. I want to return to this spirit and mindset, and with that, am casting a wide net in considering another car. Several nice drivers have appeared on this forum in the sub 25K range, some selling quickly, others not. I will patient and see what pops up.
Regards
Scott
