    Very original car. I would be really surprised if they were painted.

    There is a thread somewhere on this site that shows 00009 in it's SCCA configuration. Looks stock. Go to "1969 Competition 911" first picture in post #120.

    Yes, from what I understand from the petrolicious article when the factory sold it to their friend Al who wanted to rally in the US they added the lights etc. to make it rally spec. Most or almost all the trick bits stayed including most alloy parts. Interior looks absolutely original too. But the factory did add the front deck mounted lights etc.

    From the pictures we know 28 had R hinges but itís accounted for. 30 from the photos doesnít seems to have R hinges. (At least it doesn't appear to my eyes)

    So that leaves 29 which didnít finish? What is itís post Marathon history?

    Note the red dish light confirming the red stripe.

    My imagination is seeing body color hinges, that's why they are hard to see. There appears to be a shadow from the right side clevis pin holder. And thanks for the picture, it's not one I have seen before.

    I agree that I can convince myself about the right side.

    The left side seems hmmmm.

    So on balance I was leaning to none but I’m reconsidering. You could be right. I am not sure why they would body paint them though.

    that is a photo that I had not seen either
    Is there any indication exactly where / when it was taken?
    I only ask because the photos I have of car #30 at the marathon all have it (and car #28) with a tell-tail center stripe on the bonnet one Blue and the other Yellow but a colour photo of what i believe is the third car had no tell tail stripe.
    the car pictured has no tell tail but has a #30 - so i was wondering IF it is a a different time (maybe practice) or a different event (none known so far) or is actually 008 (#29 at the marathon) but in this photo wearing #30

    I am not sure of the identity of the car on the far left but it was used as a T-car for the 1969 Monte Carlo rally and I believe the other 3 cars are the GTS's with the one second from the left (I assumed in the past to be 008 and #29 in the Marathon) the only one without a centre stripe
    maybe I have to re evaluate that assumption

    That’s a good catch Hugh. Could it be the coloring of the photograph as well? If you look at the very front edge of the hood it is yellow. I wonder if any of the colors of the photo were distorted. And your photo above - that stripe must be red though it looks lighter I agree.

    It appears to be film they used not paint. So when was it added? They had to drive from Spa to Nurburgring so maybe after they arrived?
