My mental process right now...


(IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif) I have an original six motor in pieces in the garage, I have the guts of a six transmission with the right gear ratios... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/chair.gif) STOP IT! You already have a real six... This one would take loads of body work to be brought back to stock (IMG:style_emoticons/default/chair.gif)

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif) But it is a real six. It needs saved! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/slap.gif) You are not a body man.. this would require a LOT of money and time to fix (IMG:style_emoticons/default/slap.gif)

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/hissyfit.gif) BUT IT IS A REAL SIX!!!!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/hissyfit.gif)

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/screwy.gif) You haven't even finished your big six conversion, your current real six, and your BMW. Plus you have to get Betty's car back up and running, and you want to buy a 914 race car. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/screwy.gif)

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif) DAMN...... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

For the last 10 years I held onto two original 6 motors, thinking a roller would come along. Finally about a year ago I said enough, put both motors in different early 911's and off they went. Then this pops up, a couple of hours away. It's always the way it is, if you have it, you don't need it, if you need it, you don't have it.

I'd be tempted to bring it back to the magazine setup...talk about oddball (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) Plus it'd piss off more purists (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

It would seem to me that replacing 4 fenders
would be a whole lot easier than replacing rusted out
or crash damaged structure..
If the car isn’t rusty, I’ve seen WAY worse saved..
Looks like 99% of the six stuff is still with the car.
Anyone looking for a six project, knowing it
won’t be numbers matching probably could buy a lot worse..

The only problem with that was the two six motors I have, I paid $500 each for them. I'm assuming yours isn't $500.

Nope. And it is disassembled too. I have all the pieces, but it has to be rebuilt.

Right so my situation is I had a longblock in the corner that I paid $500 for, see a six roller come by, grab it, throw the motor in, throw some Zenith's on there, and you have a car. Which is a good spot to sell a car. Your plan would work fine if I was hoping to build a six for myself. Get the roller at a decent price, get the motor bits from you, get the motor built, and have a cool car. You can see the dilemma.

Why would any of you people want an original 6 motor..::???
All I see is that they are a lump and slow and not worth dealing with
if they aren’t matching #. Seems like a contradiction...??

It's great to see how many of us still have the old VW & Porsche mags . I still have the 1960s issue of Dune Buggies and Hot VWs That has the plans for the first "Formcar" Formula V when Brundage first invented the Class. Interesting to see how many of us first got this infection. Al

If it didn’t sell, Matt still has it. Call Retro Automotive in Claremont, NH and make him an offer. It’s a real -6 and one of us should save it. I won’t live long enough to finish it as it would get in line behind my 356 Roadster and my 914-6.

That's right around what I'd be willing to go to. For the right affecianado, I thought it might jump to $17K-$20K based on the other flamed out wreck that has been offered up a couple times in the past.

Hard to tell what reserve was. Could be completely irrational like $50k (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) who knows.

That bidding seems about right for a roller needing complete bodywork. The wrecked one that keeps popping up is at least matching numbers with motor and gearbox. This one will always be a pig in a poke, maybe a cool one, but will never command top money.

I wonder what his reserve was?

Yup, would be nice to know the reserve price.

The other 6 last week that needed a crane to remove from back yard must have been fake.

Call me crazy, but it's at about the max I would pay given what it needs and what it does not come with. I hope someone here grabs it and does it justice by returning the body to a stock or GT body. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

It is crazy what people ask for an original 914/6 engine! if it is not original (even one number off) it is still a none matching engine and you have added nothing to the value of the car...why not put something with more HP.

Judging from the prices on some of his other Porsche items for sale, i think it's safe to say his reserve was much, much, much higher than $10k.
