'72 RSR replica on Ebay, discuss:
Looks freaking amazing at first glance, anyone know this car? :cool: 806&rd=1

Shuie 03-05-2005 05:11 PM

Looks like a neat car. Sounds good to from the little bt i could stand to read. Man, thats a terrible ad. Never seen the car.

speeder 03-05-2005 05:49 PM

Shuie, Man you are right about the ad. It seems to be filled w/ good info but I was getting a headache trying to read it. That whole long paragraph reads like one sentence. :eek:

This is a good public service announcement for kids to stay in school and do their homework. Even if you wind up just being a gearhead that sells stuff on ebay, it matters. ;)

Jack Olsen 03-05-2005 05:57 PM

It's a good example of a bad sales job. You get the feeling the guy writing it up has no idea of what he's talking about (which probably isn't the case). And the photographs are awful.

Still: a nice car, probably.

Shuie 03-05-2005 06:35 PM

I pasted it into Word, did some formatting, and ran the spell check so I could read it. There is a lot of stuff that has been done to the car. Some of it sounds good (hotrod engine stuff from Jerry Woods and suspension setup from TRG) and some of it sounds not so impressive (cassette recorder)

I don't know why the eBay program does that. I've had the same thing happen to me.

You type in the text with spacing and paragraphs, but then it runs it all together when you submit it.

Finally figured out you need to insert the paragraph symbol after each section of text that you want paragraphed. Weird that it doesn't do that automatically.

Looks nice, but 20k starting bid?

fryardds 03-06-2005 04:59 AM

If the car does indeed have a 911/83 motor with MFI it should definitely start at $20K.

Boy you guys are right his text and photos are terrible for a ad.

If that motor was built on a 911/83 case, it would be worth $20K to the right person without the rest of the car!

Seriously, klaucke, buy a beater '72T, have it stripped to bare metal and painted with widebody flares added, add a rebuilt drivetrain and upgraded suspension, Bremtek brakes, 2 sets of wheels and tires--what do you think you could build it for? $20K would be a bargain for this car, even if it has some flaws.


silverc4s 03-06-2005 04:38 PM

Agreed, looks like a really good car, and a really bad EBAY ad. It probably won't sell this time around. Any Oreganonian's know this car????

klaucke 03-06-2005 05:13 PM

When I said "Looks nice, but 20k starting bid?" I was assuming the engine was built to RS spec, not that it might be an RS # case. I'm not saying it isn't worth 20k, and I fully realize it would cost much more to make this car! But 20k starting bid just seems a bit high.

speeder 03-06-2005 06:22 PM

I agree that most people don't seem to understand the dynamics of an auction, it should start @ $1000.00 even if the reserve is $50k, just to get things going. And keep the reserve a secret, when people start @ their minimum taking price and get zero bids in 7 days I am never surprised.

What on earth are they afraid of? Have they never seen a live auction in their lives? :confused:

I also agree that this car is worth more than $20k if it had a 2.7 CIS motor in it, much less a real RS motor. :cool:

I mis-understood you. I agree, the auction is starting too high.

He states: "Engine: Kahler werkstat, Jerry Woods & myself, new at restoration, Euro Carerra 2.7 race engine, 276hp. less than 20,000 miles" So unless he doesn't know what he talking about that would only describe a 911/83 motor.

Check out the photo of his engine. It most definitely has MFI.

Shuie 03-06-2005 07:35 PM

Not only MFI, but it has some kind of gee-whiz custom high butterfly throttle setup. Either that or they are injector blocks for non MFI heads. :cool:

There is a lot of money in this car. I cant wait to hear from someone who knows it.

Elombard 03-07-2005 02:58 AM

Hmmm 276 HP from a single plug 2.7. ????? IF I was spending that much on a RSR monster I would want more cubes. Very cool car though, I love the color.

Crachian 03-07-2005 12:05 PM

Alert: not a real RS 911/83 motor. When I asked the seller's first response was "Why do want to know the engine number?"

speeder 03-07-2005 12:13 PM

This forum rocks.

That figures.:( If he had a spec. motor built why didn't he say so in the description, instead of being misleading? Totally clueless!

trader220 03-07-2005 04:27 PM

Zero Bids still

The late John Gregory was a veteran 911 engine man who could frequently create MFI 2.7s and 2.8s that were clear of 100bhp/litre. Some were very close to those figures with only single-plug ignition.

I think John's son-in-law (and co-builder) Mike Jacobsen posts here and he could confirm the power limitations of 2.7 engines.
