That red BBR one is post #18 is great looking.

A lot of years ago (15+) I was looking for a chassis into which to install the modded powertrain and AA rebuilt transmission from my rusted out '73 2.0 chassis and came across an available chassis and body at BBR that was someone else's cancelled Monterey project. It already had wide Fuchs wheels, 5 lug suspension conversion, etc and I was very close to pulling the trigger on it. It wasn't long after the conversion had been written up in excellence and I still have that issue here somewhere. I thought it was a very Once I started running the #s on what it would take to finish the way I wanted to do it, I just wasn't flush enough at the time and it also would have been difficult to manage with me on the East Coast and them doing the finish work on the West Coast.

I eventually found in Seattle a freshly repainted '74 2.0 with a black interior but nothing else, which was perfect Had it shipped to me and then spent about 4 years of late nights, early mornings, and weekends moving good parts over from my old car, adding new, upgraded parts, sandblasting and repainting or powder-coating just about everything, to end up with this.

that I then took to dr914 for a final tune and alignment. Anyway, thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Since this was a thread about convertible conversions, I do have a '79 928 Spyder that was a convertible conversion done in the '80s. It was someone else's stalled restoration project that I bought, did a bunch of work and upgrades to, and finished it up summer 2015. Build sheet is in the attachment below. It and the 914 are two totally different cars, but both a lot of fun!

Thank you for your updates.
The 928 convertible looks great and very appropriate for US coasts.
I only seen one prototype picture but never built by Porsche.
