I would think that any race cars go for above that since they were very successful. Crashed version? Minimum $1M I would say...
What I'd do is get an SLC without a body and then have someone recreate the GT1 body on it. Drivetrain is already solved, because I put a GT3 motor in an SLC (same block as GT1 engine, except no turbos). :thumbsup:
Good idea. Right now I am using the same strategy having Fran build a 962C off of a SLC chassis. I'm putting a 996GT2 motor with transaxle in the back. Not the same exact motor, as the orig car had a 2.7-3.0 single turbo'd 930 based engine with one head per cylinder. But with quality internals you can run a 996TT motor up to 1000hp all day long, with little to no lag. Just to confirm the orig 962 had titanium vlaves and con-rods?
For a 911GT1 I might do the same with the SLC chassis (I've seen GT1 body ktis for 993 cars) so the molds technically exist. Fran could fab a cage in similar dimensions as a 993 with extended rear clip.
There was a hand-built tube framed LS powered version of one of these for sale on the Pelican site (among others) a few years ago. Street legal and all carbon body/trim iirc and it was white, jsut like in the photo above.
Was cheap too...at least relative to what Tim quoted.
A particular talented gentleman by the name of Nick Dames (first link below under Similar Threads) has said that he has the molds of the 993 variant body and is able to build an original style chassis. He also said he can make the body out of carbon fiber, fiberglass and I'd imagine even jute if he is so inclined. He did report that the shoehorn (or is it cowhorn?) part of the chassis is troublesome to make and vital for the appropriate body and chassis shape. He also has quite a few other Group C and even IMSA cars I think (not sure if he currently has them) and I'd imagine he also can build the chassis and body (money talks obviously). He certainly has the skills to build it so I'd imagine you can ask him for a body + chassis. He did report that he's not so inclined to sell the body by itself.
Mr. Fran is offering the 962 although there was only one picture of it and it was a looongg time ago - (anyone has any updates?). If he offered the 911 GT1 as well, he'd truly be the KING replica community. The 1998 GT1 is specially appreciated
