That means it's almost impossible to compare prices.

Not a true student of this market, but my impression is that a lot of guys who are/were in the historic Porsche race car game are aging out. Hence, their rides are coming on the market. Some of them will likely be great values for some younger guy looking to get into it. Just not a lot of those guys/gals around. Of course true factory race cars are holding/increasing in value, but the home built historics seem to be fading. The market seems to value either low mileage, bone stock original street cars or highly restored/modernized GT-type vehicles, a la' Singer.

Agree on the aging out thing. My biggest buy mistake ever was getting my 67 912 instead of a 70S racecar that was $10k more. Same guy had both cars.

I got over it. I doubled my money on the 912 and used it to buy the 74. It's been a long time since I actually went out of pocket to buy a car.


Pmax,
Counting fuel, food, lodging, entry and disposables figure several grand a weekend. That's if nothing breaks and no crashes. The more you do it the less you spend per event as you get things dialed.

There's a lot more to it then simply cars aren't selling. Like street cars not all are equal. The good cars sell quickly and the not so good sit until priced correctly. Hard part is everyone thinks their car is correct.
You have to remember Porsches are for a small group then when you factor a race car in that might be 0.1 % of Porsche fans? So yes they sit longer but there is still a market. I'm biased though

subscribed, I'm guilty. I'm a Porsche guy. More cars and parts than liquidity. Want everything. I have a perfect project and it's not selling, the price is fair but I've only had two interested parties and both had 0 posts, ie Nigerian Porschephiles . I'm thinking of making it into a DE project, installing the engine, new motor/trans mounts/ rebuild cv joint and do a bearing service, rebuild steering wrack, patch the front pan, install RS tail I have, rebuild gearbox with 7:31 rp or short gears, install a wave track lsd, stall in a cage, I have the racing seat, harnesses, rattle can the Fuchs to get rid of that ugly chrome., I have a trailer. Hmmmmm

Lexan the windows, leave the interior in place and buy a lightweight perlon carpet kit. Remove the heater system and dash and install a Tach, oil pressure light, oil temp and fuel using some simple system sold at Summit racing. Leave the torsion bars streetable, stainless steel brake lines, leave sway bars stock, rebuild the calipers, install new rotors, headers because I won't need heat, and stealth muffler ssystem, install front strut brace and used camber plates and stock bushings throughout. Buff it out and see what happens. I have new fiberglass to replace the front piece that is cracked. It's white and I"ll rattle can that.

Seems like a plan.

1970T 3.0 EFI Wide Body For Sale $35,000


I also have a 2.4 mfi pump I may install and get rid of the megasquirt and find a used ignition system to bring it all together.

$45-50k for a sorted vintage racer used to be pretty standard, with them costing 80-100K to build. Seems like a lot of them are sitting right now. Thoughts?

How much are those racecars worth ?

Well, some poor sob sunk $73K into a race car at a well known shop, top notch according to the Interweb and some here, and ended up with this. You tell us how much they are worth.



$53k body work or $73k body work? You decide

He seems to think disturbing every single thread is a community service.
