Concur that buyer got the car at probably a good price. I built a conversion car with a 993 engine in it. $10K for that low mileage 993 engine with ECU seemed outrageous at the time, but a good price today. It would have cost that to build up a 930 or .7R case anyway. I did a bare metal rotisserie thing on it and Tig'd all kinds of steel on it in the usual weak points. Epoxy prime and PPG paint were not cheap. Bottom line is getting money back on a 914/6 conversion is not easy. It has to be a labor of love. I sold that car before completing it and wish I had it back.
Conversions are not as easy as you think. And another problem with a conversion is that you find all sorts of additional stuff you want to do. Takes more time and additional money. It's very easy to end up under water.
