914 for $38K

From recent posts, I know that there are a few folks looking for a 914-6. Well, I just saw this post on the Pelican Parts cars for sale classifieds and thought I would pass it along.

http://www.pelicanparts.com/cgi-bin/classifieds/classifieds.cgi?search_and_display_db_button=on&db_id=850&query=retrieval

If you've got the money, more power to you. However, it forces me to ask the question, "How much is too much for a 914?". To put it in real estate terms, I think that he may have over-improved for the neighborhood.

The same listing also just appeared over at Rennlist

Looks to me like someone is trying to get out oof the car what he has "invested" in it. He hasn't figured out that improving a car is a really good way to lose your shirt... It's like the old racer's joke--
Q: How do you make a small fortune racing?
A: Start with a large fortune.

The same can be said of cars... If he cut his price in half, I bet it would actually sell.

I have a good sense of what it takes to put together a car like that, but I'll eat a Hoosier if it sells for more than low 20's or even high teens. Sorry, but that's just what the market is for a car like that.

OK, so this is a conversion (a 1972). I think I could put that car together from my 1973 for significantly less. Well, it wouldn't have a 3.0, it would have a 2.7. But still.

I guess my question is this: Why would someone go to all that trouble, then sell the car? Like selling a child....

The 914/6 GT with the 3.6l in excellence a few months back is selling for that price except its a real six and IMHO is worth what they are asking.

Maybe this guy had AA price his car for him:

He even has an AA license plate frame. It's a sweet looking car though. Just wish I had 23K to add it to my museum quality collection.

Am I mistaken or didn't the 2.0 cars have the chrome bumpers from the factory...and last I checked a museum quality car doesn't have cut up doors to put speakers in and a tape deck. Just being nitpicky...I guess you can when someone thinks they can get $20k+ for a 2.0

There was someone selling a survivor with under 10k miles, an Italian car, out of Pittsburg. But I think they were selling it for more money.

Looking through the "restorer's guide"

I think the appearence group had the chrome bumpers. Alloys were an option, so they were possible. I found a picture a 1974 2.0 with black bumper.

I also don't think the radio is factory....

In 73 the chrome bumpers were part of the appearance group...basically a stock item on all 2.0 cars.

In 74 chrome bumpers were an option at additional cost and not included in the appearance package.

The appearance group items changed from year to year depending on the marketing strategy of the moment.

Thanks for the info, mine being a '73 I guess I never thought the '74 was any different other than the rubber bumper pads on the back. It's always fun to learn more...Maybe I should get the restorer's guide...it's about the only 914 book I don't either have or have on order

Just to add to the confusion...

My '73 1.7 has factory chrome bumpers and fog lights.

My dad's '73 2.0 has 2L wheels and center console, but with black bumpers and no fog lights.

Go figure

The chrome bumpers were optional in all years, except of course 75-76 when the RBBBs were the only thing going. The 73 2.0s had the chrome bumpers, with the possible exception of some that were delibarately ordered without. I know of one 73 2.0 (Olympic Blue, like my car!) that was specifically ordered without sway bars, so you could get them to leave things off.
