Up for auction is a 1976 Porsche 914 1.8L that has been converted to a 4.3L GM V/6 with approximately 175Hp and 250ft-lbs of torque. The car DOES RUN but DOES NOT DRIVE so please assume that this will require a full restoration. The prior owner informed me that the 4.3L was rebuilt prior to installation and that an Edelbrock Performer manifold and Edelbrock carb was installed with a ceramic coated Supertrap header and exhaust system, electric water pump, alternator, and Accel HEI ignition system. He was not sure of the specs on the internals so unfortunately I don't have any of the cam, piston, etc information. The engine has been installed with the trans adapter kit, motor mounts, and radiator but the accelerator cable, fuel lines, cooling fan, clutch cable, and shifter linkage still need to be hooked up. Also the car does come with a targa top and the front rotors and rear hubs have been drilled to accept 5 lug wheels although 4 lug Riverias are installed now.
Overall the body is pretty straight and rust free but the hell hole area will need some attention (see pics). The interior, brakes, wiring, lenses, windshield, and seals are all shot too so assume that they will all need attention. Basically assume that all of the cosmetic items on the car will need attention and that you are buying this for the conversion drive train and roller shell only.
The car currently comes with a bill of sale but if you require a CA title I can head down to the AAA office and acquire one for $150.
Any questions feel free to call,

Kelley Blue Book announced its annual Best Resale Value Award winners, and we weren't too surprised to see the list dominated by Japanese automakers - mainly Toyota and Honda. KBB hands out the awards based on the projected residual value of mostly all 2013 model year vehicles, and Toyota skated home with a number of awards including 10 of the 22 overall categories and having five of its products in the top 10 for models with best resale value. KBB's Best Resale Value Awards were announced in the same week as the ALG Residual Value Awards, and there were many similarities between both lists, especially when it came to Toyota.

To come up with its winners, KBB measures depreciation over the first five years of ownership, and looks for the cars it expects to hold its value the best after this time; on average, the report says the 2013 model year vehicles will lose 61.8 percent of its value in five years. Of the 22 categories, 15 slots were filled by Toyota, Honda and Nissan products, while the Camaro and Porsche (Cayenne and Panamera) each took home a pair of awards. If Toyota has anything to be upset about in this list of cars, it's that categories for Hybrid/Alternative Energy Car and Electric Vehicle went to the Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Volt, respectively.
The overall top 10 models for the best resale value in 2013 are, in alphabetical order:
Auto Express reports Porsche will unveil the upcoming Macan SUV at this year's LA Auto Show. Citing an unnamed "insider," AE says that the five-door will bow with engines, suspension and interior architecture that will help differentiate it from its Audi Q5 chassis mate. Big shocker there. We've been hearing the same line since we first caught word of the Macan back when it was still rolling around under the Cajun name. The report does shed some light on the model's pricing, however. That same insider says the Porsche Macan will carry a price tag of 36,000 pounds.

What does that mean for American buyers? Do some quick math based on current conversion rates, and average UK and US prices, and we come up with a sticker of roughly $42,000 here in the land of the free. That fits in line with the rest of the company's stable, with the larger Cayenne starting at $49,600.
Still, we'll wait for more concrete word before jumping behind the AE report wholeheartedly. The 2013 LA Auto Show gets going in late November.
Each year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, a single marque is celebrated with a large and ornate "Central Feature" sculpture, with recent automakers including Audi in 2009, Alfa Romeo in 2010, Jaguar in 2011 and Lotus last year. This year, Porsche gets the honor, and it is using the opportunity to commemorate 50 years of the 911.
The sculpture features three generations of the 911 towering over the Goodwood House. The most recent 991 911 has the lowest position, with an original 1963 car second highest and a 1973 2.7 RS at the top of the pile. Be sure to check out the sculpture for yourself in the gallery of images above.
