posted in: Online Around the Net | 0

“Car is Titled as a Porsche 912 in my name. Car has approximately 75 miles since built. Built to show and drive on the streets NOT BUILT TO RACE. Must wear ear protection when driving, because of the straight cut gears in trans axle.
This car is powered with a LT1 383 and is back with a 3 speed auto trans axle from trans axle engineering. Tansaxle alone cost $15k Please look them up on line. There is well over $30K plus and hundreds of hours in this build. 
Four wheel disc brakes ,Rack n pinon steering, QA1 coil overs, Holley fuel pump, Auto meter gauges, Hurst quarter shiftier, 17 Fuchs wheels, Aluminum low back seats, 355 ring gear, All glass is new, etc… Wipers still need to be wired wiper motor is installed. Does not have horn.”
I got turned onto this through my 914 V8 eBay sale.  The current owner wants to buy my car.  He asked me to look up his auction and I was skeptical.  917 replicas never look right to me and typically have poor finishes for my tastes.  They seem to always end up red with crappy wheels.

But after looking at his build, the quality, the detail, the Fuchs, coupled with my conversation with him, my eyebrows seem to be further up my forehead than I anticipated.  The three speed auto trans axle is actually sequential and came from Inspector Gadget’s movie car.  As my head bobs side to side, I succumb to the outrageous allure but it’s still not my bag.

On eBay in Lake Helen, Florida for $14,000 to start, no reserve.
