914-6s that have low miles and are original are going for $100,000.00 plus. Those that have had their floor pans replaced, rust repairs or other non original parts are selling around $80,000.00 and less. Since your 6 has a good chassis without any other mods other than the flairs and oil cooler cutout,( unlike the tube frame yellow car above) lets do the math and start with the $80k.

Subtract $20k for a 2 liter 6 engine ( the ones we used throw away when they wore out, for a more powerful 911 engine back in the day). Subtract $10k to return to stock fenders and paint. Fenders and body parts are cheap and most of the cost is in labor and paint. Subtract $5k for new interior and any other small insularly parts. The suspension is a wash. You can sell the RSR struts, brakes, and wheels for a stock suspension and wheels.

$80k – $20k – $10 -$5k = $45k.

These numbers are an approximation, but this should get you in the ball park. GLWTS
I believe it's silly to think that this car should/would be returned to stock and base a numeric value on this assumption.

I don't believe it should be returned to stock with its very known history - a colorful one at that - and that this car in fact has great value in it being it. Most have to admit that the 914 never, ever was given its day and not allowed to show its true potential and pedigree. This one obviously has done a few things - and I believe it's worth something as it sits.

It's easy to put numbers on things and then start deducting on what 'such and such' would cost.

This case may be whatever someone will pay. Or whatever the seller will let it go for. I think it's an interesting 914 in it's own right - one that does not come up everyday.

I would also comment on the above post and say it would be a complete folly to return this to stock. You want stock? Buy one that is and save yourself tens of thousands that will be needed to get this one there. A 6 is rare - but not that rare.

I say the seller should come up with a number that is comfortable, add 25% and start there.
