What I would like to see is how much would a balls to the walls quality 914/6 GT build bring? Even then I think it will struggle in the same way custom short hoods still haven't reached any high numbers.
I agree with your analysis of it. Nice original 73-74 2.0s are mostly worth more than many /6 conversions. However, it really is a case by case thing. Some were done a long time ago to a low standard. Others are being done now to the same sort of standard as Flyin Hawaiian's 911 stuff. Look at what PMB and Patrick are building for examples.

It's mostly a curiousity thing for me. I've decided to make a /6 out of my bumble bee. I'm probably devaluing it in the short term. I don't really care because I've always wanted a /6 and real ones are now out of my reach financially. I'm not buying any $50k+ car in the near future.
