Motor Number P90781.
Originally installed in a 1957 Carrera GT Coupe.
Completely restored by one of the best Porsche 4-Cam specialists in the World.
Presently strapped to a shipping crate and ready to be sent anywhere.
Exactly as you see it shown in these two recent photos.
This will be a 'threshold sale'; payment in full prior to being made available for delivery pick up (at the threshold.)
Porsche built about 1,700 four-cam motors (ie; one thousand seven hundred+/-).
They are considered quite rare and unique.
If you are looking at this listing, chances are excellent you already know this. [but then...]
Deposit of $10,000.00 to be made within 48 hours of auction end.
We will work out the specifics of balance wire transfer once in direct contact.
My goal is to make this as smooth as possible.
Located in the Western United States- it is an easy matter for commercial freight service loading and transport for shipment.
Buyer assumes all costs of shipping.
Soon after the rebuild was completed the motor was installed in a vehicle, started up, driven a couple of miles, then removed and stored (as shown.)
• It has been sitting -'pickled'- for at least a dozen years. In that crate, covered and waiting -in a climate controlled environment.
Properly 'pickled' with 'bean oil' since being set aside, it is strongly advised the new owner should have it partially disassembled and properly cleaned before use.
Bean oil 'sets up' over time and kind of coagulates in narrow lubricant yields, galleys, and fluid pass through locations. It's the nature of bean oil.
*This "cleaning" flush is NOT a matter of a complete rebuild, but simply a partial tear down and thorough cleaning.
One thing is absolutely certain; they're not making 4-cam motors any more. (Save for CA, GmbH.)
Authentic Porsche 4-cam motors are scarce and hard to find, they don't appear on the market much.
• If you always wanted one, if only to hold for investment value- bid like you want it!
Definitely 'money in the bank'.
It wasn't that long ago you could get a nice 4-cam for $8K!
(Look at the great reference to past ads in the club mag! Shoulda, woulda, coulda, eh?)
This is a NO RESERVE auction- which means it will sell to the highest bidder.
The motor is being made available through other outlets and advertised in print publications- so, subject to prior sale.
I'm ready, willing and able to answer any questions potential (serious) buyers may have. And I'm quick to respond too.
Appreciate your interest in this motor.
If you bid, good luck and I hope you prevail in the end.
PPI can be arranged. Copy of build details goes to buyer -post sale.
Yes, I removed reference to the original builder of the motor because it isn't my place to volunteer his time and effort.
When the sale is done I'll make a conference call introduction between buyer and builder- let them sort it out amongst themselves.
That access is like icing on the cake (IMO), but utilizing his skill and expertise is not a component of our motor sale deal.
**Those are actual photos of the motor. I blurred the nonessential parts because they aren't germane to the object being offered.
Appreciate the many calls and emails I've received.
Yes, open to offers.
My ONLY GOAL is to sell it.
