    Michael is right. The peanut headrests give the game away on the seats. Either they were not originally leather or the headrests have been changed.

    CPR missed the flapper box clip on the connecting hose and perhaps a sticker on your coil. The fan strap bracket looks odd to me too.

    You need a Weltmeister sticker in the rear quarter window too.

    Enjoy your car. I'm sure you will have been looking forward to this moment when you can drive. Three years is a long wait but worth it.

    Regards

    How come? I believe the 'peanut' shape headrest to be 73

    The seats were leather and black corduroy before.

    Yes to the stickers

    and thanks for the flapper box

    and Yes to the 3 year wait...

    I don't think I've ever seen peanut headrests in original leather. Yes they are 73 but I always thought full leather recaro sports seats all came with leather D shaped headrests. Mine does, and it's a June 73 build.

    When you throw leather/courduroy into the mix rather than full leather I'm not sure. Someone else with that original combo will chime in.

    It's not a great issue. The seats look great and it won't affect the thrill of the drive. Enjoy.


    Regards

    Much research and investigation has been carried out to be completely and absolutely accurate and precise...
    The car was delivered to California in Spring, 1973 and has 54000 miles on her...
    Every bolt, every fitting, every detail has been researched with the aim of absolute originality...
    I look forward to your comments and questions.
    It is certainly a beautiful car, but from the few photos you have posted, there are obvious deviations from "absolute originality".
    For a 1973 US-spec car, the headlights and rear bumper guards would not be original or correct. The car's exterior has a mix of US and ROW components.

    Are you asking for nit picks? I have some in addition to the above. Air cleaner sticker, paper hoses, if not euro (does not look like it), needs fr bumper over riders. Latch panel stickers, maybe more. That said , nice car.

    You are right Jon,
    It was presumptuous and somewhat pretentious of me
    As I am carried away by the excitement of finally receiving my car.... and
    As it is true that I have always preferred the European spec headlights and bumpers, for their 'simpler' lines, I requested CPR to undertake these changes!

    My experience as well and was why I asked.

    Jussy, your excitement is well deserved. She appears to be a beauty.. We mean well but, can be a tough crowd when the gauntlet is thrown down.

    I love the changes you made, car looks so much better without those huge rubber buffers and with euro lights. You would not have had the rubber buffers anyway as your car was built before the changes which occurred in January or February.

    When you receive your COA chances are it will not list a Becker Europa as the installed radio, but for sure that is not the correct radio faceplate for an early 911. Looks like what they installed in the early Mercedes Benz.
