That yellow car on BAT was a killer buy. I know the car (it's currently at Tangerine), I bid on it, but got stuck in meetings when it ended and got pipped. Guy paid $21,164 (+5% and shipping) for a solid car with a clean 2.4 CIS conversion (looks factory). 914-6 oil tank, proper 5-bolt conversion, Ferrari 308 rear brakes, very sano build.

It's pretty much how I'd do it, narrow body, 2.4L, 5-bolt conversion. About the only thing "wrong" on it is there's a bit of a hack where they clearanced the rear firewall (toward the trunk) to clear the CIS distributor (easily repaired), and it needs paint. Interior is standard "blah" but in good shape.

I'm quite disappointed that I missed out on it.

I think my mostly-restored street '74 2L is worth around $15k, so there's ZERO way I could replicate the yellow car for that price (hell, just buying the engine...) Even if my street car were bought for $10k I couldn't do it.

Woulda, coulda, shoulda...sigh...
