I just came here to post this.

I want to say “yikes” but I still want it in my driveway. There have been worse offered for more.

Maybe cheap to get into......not so cheap to bring back.
Bring money, talent and time.
Restored is best.

What would make this car cool would be a big six motor and some flares, make a real monster, and in the end it would be a real six, so could justify the money you put into it. Depending on how cheap it sells for.

Why would he put in the ad 2.0 ?? Strange ... Plus No Engine or Trans .. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

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.

The flat sixes equipped on the 914 six was a 2.0l sourced from a 911T. So the ad is accurate.

See, that is why I love this site. Someone asks a question because they are unfamiliar with what makes a real Six and members take the time to explain why it is in fact a Six. Everyone learns in the process. On most other car forums the fur would have been flying. Civility wins the day. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

If I wasn't suffering from restoration fatigue already and had more shop space, I'd bid on this. Looks like a great project and probably the only way I could ever afford a real six. Somebody should get it.
