Listed on there with 15K price and 123K miles thinking up there pricewise no leakdown or history,hopefully being a later motor issues may have been sorted,current trendy motor to fit in a 911 but no loom or ecu with that price....really.

I paid 7k for mine some 12(?) years ago.

They don't make air-cooled engines no more ...

not a great deal but in the ballpark.
If you had one, would you sell it cheap?

At a minimum it will need exhaust guides and a reseal.
Porsche used a *rare part on these cars which I've heard referred to as the "extra wear exhaust guide cover" (engine tray).

Good base for a 914 since it's the OBD1 and non-VarioRam intake.
The crazy part is that he wants another 700 for the DME.

I would think offering 12500 would be reasonable, seeing as it would need a checkup/top-end before putting in.

Friend of mine has a'95 in his 911 racecar...kept it bone stock and it always worked great. He added lightness to get performance out of the car.

There are deals out there and sometimes you get lucky but all the air cooled engines are going up in price. Just a fan and shroud are bringing what a whole core engine used to cost. It cost $5-6k just in parts and machine work to do a basic rebuild on a six. That’s separate from the $6-12k in labor.

Our shop is buying any 3.2 & 3.6 that’s reasonably priced. I think prices will be double in the next couple years.

That seems high even now. I've had a '95 993 engine in Penelope since 1999. It's tired now so, a few months ago, I paid $13,500 (Parts Heaven) for a 60Kmi engine complete with DME and all of the peripherals that had very good leakdowns and compression. Didn't need the exhaust which would have been $1K more. Still have most of the old one I got with the original engine.

I haven't thought about it for years but the first engine I bought for $3K plus trading my 2.7L E engine that was in the car when I bought it in 1994. The 2.7L became a 40hr race engine and is still in a 1973 race car. Jerry Woods has rebuilt it a couple of times.

These things are ridiculously expensive... could'a had nearly as much fun with a spec Miata!!!!! Maybe not.

Funny thing is it seems the selling is saying that the car was parted out because previous owner didn't like the body color.

I agree, seems a little high for a motor with no real data on condition, and non-varioram. 12-13k. seems more the ball park. But they are getting more rare...

I was actually going to PM you and ask if you have seen any decent 3.2s that may be available...

Why not just build a big /4 motor?
Should be a better investment .

No I wouldn't sell it cheap,I just don't think that it is worth it due to mileage,no history ,no attempt by seller to check its condition and the fact it is missing loom and ecu,that was more my point.
A lazy seller and a potential grenade of a motor is the way I see it.

It's both overpriced and that is a sign of the times. Makes me wish I didn't let my injected 3.2 go for $4,500.00 several years ago.

I'll never be able to afford a /6 motor again myself theses days....

I sold a complete 2.2 (?) years ago for $800 I think. Worse was when my 964 was totalled with front end damage I could have bought the car back for $5,000. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

My 3.2 needs a top-end rebuild, which is disappointing since it was advertised as 55K miles. I paid $5K for it 6-7 years ago. Erik Shea pointed out that currently a 3.2 in unknown condition sells easily for $15K. So I’m going to say, sign of the times...
