There is definitely value there, especially with the use of OEM parts

That appears to be a pretty sweet ride! If you can get into it for the price you want, that looks like a winner! They ain't getting cheaper whether they are a factory slant or not.
I agree with you.. and btw your car is really schweet.. as most Ultrasmith cars were!

That to me makes the assumption that the purchase of one of these cars is based on
"value and collectability." What about enjoyment of use.. after all, its just a car right? Albeit a special car.

I tend to agree w on boost, the best part of the 930 experience atbleast for me is the scooting around in it on the weekends. I vould never havevne of these cars and not drive. I'd love to have a 505 again, and will, but these Allan Johnson cars are pretty special too a this one will surely scratch the itch.

Tt.. by the way, that car you're looking at is gorgeous! If it fulfills the need, and checks out ok, I think you should move on it.

There was what I like to call a sister car to mine for sale her on Pelican about a year and half ago. I call it a sister car as it too was an Alan Johnson Racing slantnose conversion and shared many of the same options as my car such as the console, the Recaro model "C" seats, the original version of the 930S steering wheel that came in the Special Wishes cars etc..

I know haw that its can be as I've had 3 slantnose cars in total at this point,

- a 77 930 that had a custom conversion done to a high level. (long sold, which I still had it to convert back to stock)

- an 87 930 Row Special Wishes car (which was really a nice car)

- My current 930 which is an Alan Johnson Racing slantnose conversion It is far from stock, but I like this one much more than the other two I was fortunate enough to own. This one is also #2 of the 78 U.S. 930 production run with a build date of 9/77.

I have to disagree, true 505 cars will always be more valuable.

Yes, all things being equal,a 505/6 is always worth more.

My Ruf conversion will be for sale soon. Glass and headliner are going in. Touched up the paint in places while the glass was out.

5,500 miles since rebuilt with $40,000 in itemized receipts at Rennsport , Texas. over 550 + HP. Ice cold Griffith AC.


I will post it in the for sale section soon.

Car is way too fast for my needs and limits.


I also have an 84 Special Wishes Moss green Carrera that will be for sale also. Please PM as I don't want to take away from the thread.

[QUOTE=j930;7758381]i believe Alan Johnson used all OEM parts. although its not a true slant nose in that it was built in the motherland i can't imagine how there is not value there.

Good to hear others feel as I do. This is a original paint Fly yellow 79 930 color to sample, then built by Alan Johnson Racing 82-83 with the non vented fenders that were available then. Other upgrades were weltmeister suspension, under body vented brakes, limited slip set @ 80/20 and a 8:41 R&P, better cams, headers, head porting , Andial intercooler . I bought it 14 years ago with 29K miles ( now has 43K miles). It came from factory ( I have the window sticker) with sport seats, limited slip. I got it from the largest car collector in Texas, (J J Moore. approx 400+ cars). I have kept it as it was built at the very beginning of special wishes cars with no vent SN and color coordinated wheels, and it really is a great car to drive, was way ahead of it's time and is original as built in 83.

Yes the factory production 505s are nice, but for others the higher performance quality ones built by RUF, Andial, Alan Johnson,, Kremer, DP and a few others can be very desirable also. I also have a 89 505 with an additional 190 HP, so that now is much nicer to drive.
