Weird week for Modifed Porsche’s!

I love to see when people do strange stuff to Porsche’s, trying to improve upon perfection, it is amusing to say the least. The first one is a 356 that is described as,
“1964 PORSCHE 356 WITH 930/911 LOOK MUST SEE CAR IS SET UP FOR 930 MOTOR WITH 944 TURBO BRAKES WITH POWER BOOSTER CAR IS SET UP WITH 5-SPEED TRANSMISSION NEEDS MOTOR CLEAN TITLE IN HAND MUST SELL OR TRADE NO BS CALL 914 804 9842 OR EMAIL”

Here is a link:
I can’t really give a better description than that…

The next one I found was a Boxster that the guy shoved a V8 into. He had to extend the frame by 4 inches and he said all you need to finish it is, well, I will let his words tell the scary story,
“-I GOT THIS IDEA SEVERAL YEARS AGO –WHY NOT PUT A CHEVY V8 IN A BOXSTER—-i bought a boxster that was a salvage veh. with hardly any damage –i guess it was a recovered stolen car—so i wanted to put a v8 in it –i should have done my homework because it would not fit —so i extended the body/ chassis 4 in. and made a complete subframe for the engine and trans and it turned out just sharp —the extended body gives a whole new look to a boxster with very european lines –it has a chevy small block hooked up to a porsche 914 trans —all it needs is a radiator –shifter–and wiring to complete —car has no title –just never got one –its a project that has so much potential—only have a few pics –but call if interested —-973 714 3175”

More and more of these are coming up so I thought I would add a few. The first was a trike made out of an A Coupe, it took balls to make this one. The description read,
“ONE OF A KIND PORSCHE TRIKE CUSTOM

1958 PORSCHE 356, OWNED BY A MEMBER OF AN ICONIC FAMILY, BECAME AN ALL ORIGINAL ONE OF A KIND 3 WHEEL CUSTOM CHOPPED TRIKE.
A ONE OFF CUSTOM SINGLE WHEEL FRONT END WAS DESIGNED AND INTEGRATED INTO A RE-ENFORCED FRAME.

THE ORIGINAL PORSCHE POWER-TRAIN AND CHASIS WITH MATCHING NUMBERS FROM 1958.

THERE IS VERY INTERESTING LONG TERM COLLECTIBLE VALUE FOR THIS ITEM.

ENTERTAINING OFFERS ON THIS ITEM AND A DUNE BUGGY THAT IS A CUSTOM BODY CREATION BY KENNY HOWARD AND OTHERS.”

The 2nd addition was a very weird Speedster kit, someone got real funky with the paint. The description read,
” 1955 Porsche Kit car body with a homemade frame . VW type 3 Motor but engine is stuck and needs a rebuild. Pictures tell the story. Some extra engine parts included.No title . No trades cash only”

Because nothing says safe like homemade!wavy5
