HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

What would you pay for this 951

Post  rooster on Tue Feb 14, 2012 2:05 pm

I've been looking for a 951 LS1 transplant candidate for some time now. I've driven a few that were 'ridden hard and put away wet', thre was just too much neglect to make it worth while. I was hoping to find a runner so that I could access the overall condition of the car on the street and have the added benefit of selling the motor for a few bucks. I have not been able to find that $5-6k runner that I was hoping for, maybe I'm dreaming and the just don't exist. Anyway I'm back to my fall back option which is my brother's 87' 951, 92k miles, and a blown head gasket. It has been sitting for 10 years and will need a complete going through to make it safe for the street/track and the LS1. The good news is it's a straight car with nice interior and a LSD transaxle (option code 220). '87 or later is what I prefer for ABS and late off-set so I don't have to swap a bunch of suspension. It obvioulsy has some pros but many cons since it's been sitting.

What would you guys pay for such a beast? I've got $2k stuck in my head (heck the LSDs go for $1500 alone right?). Discuss.

Thanks.

I'd say between $2k and $3k depending on actual shape. Being that it's family, I'd say $1500 tops! Razz

Sitting for 10 years?!! Even though the transmission may be worth $1K, the calipers pistons and/or seals may be shot from sitting as well as the shocks. All said and done, you could be into it for close to a grand just to get it to road worthiness.

BUT....it is your brother and thats a WHOLE 'nother animal. If it was my brother selling it, I would give him what he's been looking to get (but he would just give it to me anyway).

What to pay

Post  fliermike45 on Tue Feb 14, 2012 3:43 pm

Where has the car been sitting? Was it dry? The bodies of these 944/951/968's are tough and unless it's been in an accident should be rust free. It's worth buying for the late offset and LSD transaxle.
The 951 front body panel is much prettier than the ugly 944 style.

The worn/corroded stuff needs to be changed anyway for the LS1 swap as the brakes need upgrading along with stiffer springs and new suspension bushes/shocks etc.

I would say 1500 to 2000, worse case you could part it out and make a small profit, people will stand in line for the LSD transmission. The 951 front end, header panel and fenders are also worth some money.

Turbo style, late offset, LSD and a blown engine. Sounds to me like the prime LS1 swap candidate is right in your brother's barn (or backyard, or whatever)!

I never buy or sell from family for one simple reason. If buying, I try to find someone strapped for cash and pay way less than it's worth. If selling, I try to find someone with more money than brains and get more than it's worth. Also, due to liability, I don't deal with family unless i'm willing to give it to them.

Keep in mind that 951 track cars with blown engines come up from time to time in full track dress for 5k. Without knowing the condition of the interior/exterior you will have to replace all of the suspension bushings, front a-arms, tie rods, and as stated struts and shocks. Tranny should be drained and main seal replaced. CVs replaced. Betting that front wheel bearings need to be replaced as well.

'87 does not guarantee ABS. Both master cylinders should be replaced, as well as flex brake lines. '87 front calipers will have to be upgraded.

Depending on the condition, a part seller would pay 3k for the roller, IMHO.

Thanks for all the feedback folks and thanks for the input on what needs to be addressed. Most of it I was aware of, some not (wheel bearings, etc.). I'm going to have a talk with my brother and make him see the real value of what he has. If not, its back to the classifieds.......
