    Welcome to the Forum Geoff. It might help to list the engine number you are after (if you know the original numbers?).

          Welcome Geoff,

          Clyde ( Terminator) is very knowledgeable re 1973 cars.

          Not that you need my advice re matching numbers, but I have both matching and non matching cars and I definitely don’t enjoy the matching ones to any greater extent.

            Geoff there is a long recent debate on the Early 911 forum in the US on this very topic.

              Hi Geoff and good talking to you over the past few days.

              I do have a perfect case for you to build that engine if it can't be found it will check the engine number early next week

                Welcome Geoff, good looking car, and well, I obviously love a 1973 911

                My German is a bit rusty, but this is how I translate it:
                fahrzeug nicht konserviert - car is not protected (literally: preserved); did they maybe leave the PVC underside protection off by any chance?
                selbstabholer tourist im werk - Yes, self-collection at the factory (Werk = factory) is the most literal translation.
                BEFESTIG.F.KENNZ.BEILEGEN - Put the plate holder - brackets with the car.

                  Patrick and Geoff
                  the "preservation" comment is regarding the treatment for cars being shipped by various means or picked up either at the factory or at a nominated dealership in Europe
                  the different means of transporting the car from the factory and levels of protection and code for each are as follows
                  0 car waxed - stock Germany sold
                  4 car waxed - export shipping
                  5 car unwaxed - Inland: collected by te dealer or customer; export collected by the exporter inside the factory
                  6 car unwaxed - collected personally by the tourist outside of the factory
                  7 car waxed - collected personally by the factory outside of the factory
                  8 car not waxed - air freight

                  the waxing is the cosmoline type substance that is applied at the factory to protect the car during shipment and then removed at the dealership before delivery

                  the plate holder and brackets would be for the Zoll (export) plates the car would wear for up to 3 months to be able to be driven around in Europe legally and insured without being further registered

                      Thanks all I appreciate the info and support. I have started to put right a couple of the 80s improvements. Mirrors are now correct, wheels are being improved including the spare and tyres. Tinting now removed took day and half and a sore neck. Comfort seats (the originals) will be put back in and original to this car steering wheel going back on. List seems endless and the two alarms, immobiliser, central locking, electric antenna, cruise control, handbrake combination lock are to be banished to the bin eventually....,,
