This is so wrong,

But it was done SO right.

Can only imagine how much fun that car would be to drive...

I really dig the no rocker look.

that bin price is crazy. i would think more like $40s. its not what you spent on it, its what buyers think its worth. never resistered, 'has problems passing emissions in every state...'

$120k? should have just listed it for $1,000,000 as it would have been just as crazy. He invested $135k into making a Porsche 930 into a Vette? WTF is wrong with him? If you're going to invest $135k into a 930 might as well modify a 930 engine..the LS7 swap should be the economical choice of the two otherwise why bother.

little in automotivedom pisses me off more than the use of "invested" usage in for sale ads

argh!

Gee, $130k "invested" for a $120k sale - oohhhhh, I'm going to run and plow all of my money THAT GUY'S WAY and have him "invest" it for me!!! YEAH!!!

Folks are utterly we tar did all too often - friggin PAINFUL

"invested"

God I hate people. Rarely is that term EVER the case in cars - fitting only for true Blue Chip INVESTMENTS (read: cars whose values actually APPRECIATE beyond that which was SPENT).

Um, duh?

neat car tho - absurd ad/price (don't even get me started at the ridiculous attempt @ Engrish... yeah cause online translators are so hard to find/use)...

If you're gonna try to ride the 930 price wave shouldn't you at least have a 930? Don't have the correct 440 Six Pack for your '69 Super Bee? No problem, just drop that GM LS7 in and you're good to go. Makes about as much sense.

Now, I'm not against conversions. In fact I kinda like the idea of a lightweight, reliable power plant with modern tune-ability and reliability, but only with the understanding that it comes with a cost.

This is not a 930 and it does not have cheap Chevy power, a white elephant.
It would be fun, but fun can be had for less money or in a real 930 for that coin.

I'm a huge GM fan and LS-X lover, but sticking that unnaturally balanced "truck" engine in a 930 is just stupid.....

I'm not a big fan of conversions using valuable and or beautiful cars such as a Porsche. Too bad he ruined such a nice car. Now if you have a high production run of the mill production car that you modify the body, suspension and engine and make an uncool car cool that is different...

If someone handed me the keys to this V8 car at VIR, I'd be shortly thereafter laying two strips of rubber from pit out to turn 1.

Price wise, it's about 30% more than a sorted out Cup Car.

It looks like a cool car too me. I think the fact that it says its never been registered in the us and has a salvage title hurts the value more than the water pumper in the back.

I love my my antiquated air cooled 3.3 and would never consider a swap. That said I followed lin7310948's build and I think it's bad ass. Extremely well executed.
Pretty hard to argue with the #s. 700=+ H.P. Modern fueling etc. etc. And IIRC it weighs less than a 3.3
I love everything about the Fleabay car except the mirrors and, oh yah...the price.

It's a hot-rod, not a 930. Nothing wrong with that IMO except:
- lack of brakes
- absurd price
- horribly written ad

It's easy to hate on the V8s with their crude pushrods and mass production, I'm as guilty as most... but that 427cid engine is stupendous. Do some quick reading on it, and if it wasn't for the Chevrolet-association you'd think it came from Europe: all-aluminum, dry sump, fully counterweighted forged crank, Titanium rods, CNC-machine ported heads, Ti valves... At a little over 400lb it's over 100lb lighter than a 930 engine.

No, it isn't factory and pure by any stretch, but it's probably a helluva lot of fun!
