10k: Repeat Offender: 1973 Porsche 914 w/Chevy V8 Swap; Sleeper

We featured a mid-engine swap monster late last year - it was a 500 horsepower Converse Engineering kit swapped 914 and it failed to meet reserve on ebay after bidding stopped at $5k.  Now, find the same 1973 Porsche 914 with Chevy V8 for sale in Santa Monica, CA back up on ebay with bids starting at $8,700 with no reserve.

The Porsche 914 with Chevy V8 is one of those timeless classics, a logical conclusion for the question of what to do with a cheap low powered sports car and America's disposable cast iron horsepower machine.

Perhaps there will be a bidder at $8,700, but we would expect more action if the seller had started the auction where it left off a few months ago at $5k.
