Im looking to trade my clean and documented 1990 Porsche 911 Targa Black on Black 5 speed for a clean Montauk. Its a straight clean car.
Does anyone know of any Whaler dealers that accept cars on trade?
All the best!

Jack, a couple more bits of info my help.
Where are you located?
What Year Montauks are you willing to consider?
Do you have a preference on power?
Is there any other models you would consider?
Any other info on the car would help as well.

Im located in Toronto, Ontario. But the Porsche was originally a US car, imported into canada in 1991.
Im willing to consider any Montauk that has a market value around the 17-20K US mark. Seems to be what my car is worth. As far as power goes, I see most of the Montauk out there with 90's, no?
The Porsche is an accident free car. 3.6 Litre, 103000 miles. with a full documented engine rebuild at 40000miles and all possible engine updates by a well known Porsche shop in Toronto by a certified master mechanic. All documented history. Original paint. Never winter driven. Perfect motor compression. New Bosch clutch. New tires. Working A/C. Interior in perfect condition. New starter. Aftermarket ipod deck and new speakers. Top in excellent condition. Valve adjustment and tuneup just completed. Interior in mint condition. & Recent appraisal. Would make an excellent daily driver.
Thats the car :)
Hope that helps. Any help on finding a good clean trade would be great. Im selling because the car will not be used. I dont want to leave it to sit for years...

"1990 Porsche 911"
Uh... that looks like a 964 to me... ;-)
(mine is a 92 C2, she just passed 200K miles and is running like new!).
Guys, this is one of the best cars that Porsche ever made. It's essentially the body of the 911 with the running gear (coil over suspension) of the later 993. Classic looks, with modern technical features. I drive mine every day (salt, sand, snow, rain, you name it). It's never left me stranded. Mine lives in the driveway 12 months a year. I even washed it (once).

wrong thread I know but I cant help,,if you buy or own a 964 look out for the belt that synchronizes the dual distributors, this model has 2 plugs per cylinder and the belt is prone to failure if not maintained, and it is tricky to do onown's one, if it fails it will likely cause detonation by getting the spark out of sequence and thus blowing the cylinder head and requiring a rebuild..probably the cause of the 40k rebuild that is mentioned...sorry cant help myself

Naturally if the 1992 and later distributor cooling kit and the new part number distributor belt is retrofitted to the distributors, they are bulletproof. That was only a problem in the very first build series and I cannot think of one that has not been retrofitted. Usually when they break, they just either don't run at all, or run like crap. No reason that a busted belt would cause any major damage though. It's not like it controls the cam (IE, Bent Valves).
Looks like we have a Whaler-Owners 964 sub-group here... ;-)

I've been looking at 1989-1993 964s. Prices have come down quite a bit lately. Here's one for $11K.
