FS: #518 944 Spec - Utah - $13k

Recommended Posts


'86 Chassis, '88 Drivetrain - SP1, 944-Spec prepared

Located in Salt Lake City, Utah


Contact: Greg Troester - gregt1732[at]gmail.com


Sold w/o title (retubbed car in 2016) but have signed bill of sale from chassis owner.

This is an excellently-prepared race car. Turn-key and ready to go for the 2018 season with PCA, NASA, SCCA, or POC. I've built the car up from 2012 today, with many improvements (see list below). I'm selling the car after a successful 2017 season in order to move to a different platform. Please contact me for more background and to see the car.
