    the F model was the 1973 model year and your '70 is the C model
    which one do you want information on ?

    1970 914-6 - materialised from the 'Lotto' garage into reality
    1971 2.2 911 S - now back in the UK - sob!
    1975 Carrera Targa (ROW) - missed.
    One of us is fast becoming a valuable antique.

    like Dirk says, in Europe we call pre 73 models f models and bumper models for G models.
    Im mostly interestet in the 1070 model and the diffences in aperence, lights, gauges, bunper horn, engine specs, trim options (T vs. E. vs S) ect.

    I was hoping that there where a tabel that show the differences and some pictures to back it up.

    Euro Equipment

    Dunno about 'RoW.' Think that designation came about some time in the '80s, maybe? I have read accounts of cars being equipped for certain markets --- 'Italy-' and 'Japan-specific' option codes/cars come to mind, but/anyway . . .

    Sorry, no 'table', but --- I own German-market 1970 'S' and, compared to a US-market car, there aren't that many differences = short list . . .

    1) Euro car probably came w/ 'H1' (non-sealed beam) headlights --- dual-reflector + bulb w/ flush glass assembly vs single-reflector w/ inset lens (aka 'sugar scoop') for US

    2) Euro car has different turn-signal lighting. Fronts have small white 'flasher' (enlarged for IT-market cars) + amber 'running light'. Front turn-signal housing + wiring are different, as well. Euro has amber 'running' + red 'brake' rears, w/white 'back-ups'; US car has all-amber front lenses + all-red rears w/white back-ups

    3) Euro has metric instrumentation vs English on the US

    4) Euro seat belts have a white thread running in the middle of the straps

    5) US car has a fuel vapor trap (various hoses + canister) residing in the left front of the trunk, adjacent to the fuse panel

    May be some other subtle stuff --- like interior materials, radios w/ strange reception 'bands', + other odd equipment . . . my car came with a German-language fire-extinguisher fitted to the trans tunnel --- even had a Swiss Car Dealer key-fob

    as stated above. there was no RoW back in those days. French cars got yellow head and fog lights, italian cars had different turn signals and brit delivery cars even had the steering wheel mounted on the wrong side, how crazy is that.

    i believe the 5 speed was standard in Germany, but the 4 speed was standard for many years in the USA. engine power was generally lower because of emissions/ lower fuel grades (designed to run on 87 or even lower octane fuels not available in Europe)

    Swiss cars had swiss equipment...and seat belts were usually dealer installed, so several brands were used and differ for each market. RoW was not Europe only, but Rest of World: Japan, Kenya, Australia, UK, Spain, Italy or Sweden..
