    I think they still offer Porsches in Böblingen - the Porsche Zentrum Böblingen is part of the Hahn Gruppe.

    I just got news from the previous owner.
    The engine swap didn't take place in the US - it happened in Zurich around 85 or 86 in a Porsche garage but not a Porsche dealership. Name is unknown...
    That leads to the very likely conclusion that the engine is still in good old Europe.
    Eventually.
    Does this help - I doubt it but maybe anyone around here has an idea how to move on.

    Can one get a kardex for a '73 through the usual non-Porsche sources?

    Yea, my fault.

    is there any chance that it was registered in Switzerland before the engine swap and there may be a registration record there showing its engine number. Maybe a Swiss member can comment on that. Given it was not imported there new I suspect the normal very informative AMAG records there wont apply
