Talk me out of calling Matt, buying it and sending it to Kent and the crew in LA....
I'm busy with my own project. Plus, this one deserves better quality than what I could do and I'm not good at leaving things even remotely stock.
I'm thinking narrow body with gas burners and something like a 2.2.
Again, please: talk me out of it.

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?

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.

Yes most like likely but have dealt with him before his stuff is top notch,I do find his 914 parts are somewhat "up there".
First purchase was 911 internal handbrake parts for one side,he included a set of "wear parts for the other side for free ,like $50 which I thought was fair and parts came beadblasted…..just saying.
No rust in the shell good but I assumed these kits required bastardization to fit the glass panels ? if so the repair work and replacement steel panels could be rather spendy also.

Lots of cutting with a sawzall and then flattening over with a hammer. Adhesive and bondo.

Better question is how does this car go from being on the cover of a magazine to this condition.

Poor 914's have had a rough life.

I saw this car earlier this week. It is a real -6 and it is very rust free. It needs four fenders and the damaged rear panel replaced. I think he is including a replacement rear panel. The original fenders were removed where they normally attach. It had a seized 3.2 in it when Matt bought it and the -6 serial are all present and accounted for as well as the Karmen body number in front of the rear trunk latch. Somebody save it. I have one and don’t need two at this time.

What I don't Understand is that I have always been told from the Purist is that the Chalon's kits on a 914 are and you have a piece of shit because it NOT an original stock car .. Mine looks the Same as this one just a different color and 2.0 eng And I'm being told it's a piece of shit .. BUT Now someone has put a Chalon kit on a six and these guys are all getting moist and talking a different tune .. How is that ??? Don't see the Numbers of what it is going down the street .. Nor do you know what engine is in it .. All I see is all the 914 Chalon kit cars all look the same no Matter What the VIN # is .. So I'm a little Confused ..

If it's cheap enough you can pull off the kit and restore to stock.

I remember around the time of this issue a red Chalon with the whale tale was on the TV show ALICE. I remember something about a pissed off wife that sold the car for a dollar.

@beakster

Porsche 914/4 -- maybe worth $40-50K on high end for a nice conversion with a six.

Very original Porsche 914/4 with something like 5,000 original DOCUMENTED miles in stellar condition went for $90K at auction recently but every mile it is ever driven results in MASSIVE depreciation since the value was in the low milage.

914/6's regularly going for over $100K even for those that are not original and/or restored to a decent standard. A real 914/6 GT with race history recently went over $900K.

Simple math. Has nothing to do with the Chalon kit. Whoever buys will strip the Chalon kit and put back to some sort of 914/6 configuration. Depending on on the reserve price and how the work is done (DIY or professional restoration), it could be a smoking deal or a money pit that barely breaks even.

Based on the flamed out wreck with matching VIN's that hasn't sold, it seems that the value of the 914/6 VIN alone is somewhere above $10K and below $17K. In my mind car this could be higher since the start from point is so much better than with the flamed wreck.
