    FS: @eBay - Silver 65, claiming silver not common

    No affiliation,
    There is a 1965 car on eBay claiming that silver was a color not available to public order. As the paint was reserved for racing cars.
    That doesn't seem correct.
    Can anyone verify?

    I have a 63 cab in silver.
    I heard they had problems with the metallic. That would make more sense.
    I also read that silver was a declining color those years.

    Also, I thought Germany's racing color was white.
    Except for the story of a car maker removing paint to save weight in a race and the car was silver bare metal.

    Recently picked up a factory silver metallic with red interior color code 6206 It is a 66 911 built in December 65....Also a factory Sunroof Car...I believe 6206 was a 356 color and had to be special ordered on the 65/66 911s....

    1965 Porsche 911 $300K CAR MUST SELL-NO RESERVE - NO RESERVE

    Maybe more laughable than the rarity of metallic silver...

    Owner is "... willing to sell the car for less then $407K."

    I have a lot of cars in silver in my database, so the assertion is just rubbish.
