Al Reed Polished Cam Tower

I had this polished for my old 944 and then never got around to installing it. It is fully polished w/ black relief around the PORSCHE letters and clear coated. Done by Al Reed Polishing. You can see by the masking on the backside it is "as received" from Al's shop. The end plate and that bracket were not polished.
Sorry for the off center picture.

It has been gathering dust in the garage for quite awhile, time to let it go to one of you guys. $150 takes it. Buyer pays actual shipping.

First person to post "I'll take it", gets it.

PM me, email me at estradad@metro.net during the workweek or vdanestrada@yahoo.com over the weekend.

Hmmm...I received an email telling me "SamGrant" responded to this ad...but no response here, no PM either.

Sam if you're out there, try again or send me an email to my home, vdanestrada@yahoo.com. Thanks for your interest, Dan

Sorry, I saw "take it" and went nuts, then I saw the $150 and deleted my post. I just had a cam tower redone but was going to grab it for a close friend. Nevermind, its still up for grabs!

Sam, Thanks for the clarification.

I have been out of the 944 world awhile now. Am I out of touch on the price of these parts? I paid over $100 for the cam tower BEFORE it was polished by Al...which wasn't cheap. Let me know what you think.

Hello:

What year was the 944 that this came off of? Or, in other words, what year 944 would this fit?

thanks.

As far as I know it'll fit any 8 valve head. I was planning on putting it on my '87NA, it was idenitcal to the non-polished one on it.

Later after I sold that I was going to put it on my '86 951 and my mechanic told me it would fit fine. I sold that car too so....

Thanks for your interest, Dan

Thanks Sam, thanks 944mech,

Someone make me an offer guys. Its a beautiful part and would make anyone's engine compartment looks better.

Did I mention that chrome and polished parts make your car faster?!

I would love to buy it, but just last tuesday I sent out my spare cam tower to jesse at 944powdercoating.com to have it painted black w/ chrome letters.
If only you had posted it last week!

SOLD to Aribop with Eldorado in second position if for any reason the sale doesn't happen.

Ironically, I was out taking additional photo's at Eldorado's request and about to upload them when airbop's "I'll take it" came through.

Here are the pictures anyway so you'll know what you're getting. I think it is a beautiful piece (as is all of Al Reed's work). Kudo's to Al.
