    Not sure if I've posted on his before. Suspect it sold some years ago

    I might have the may 72 c&cc edition somewhere in my bookshelves

    Location of dealer is not far from my London house but anyone with £2.5 k trying to ring hoping it is still for sale there should know iirc the code prefix on telephone changed on the eighties from 01 to 081 to 0181

    I am a bit confused about the claims in this ad from Stanley Palmer. It claims that BPF 911H was the Toivonen winner of the 1969 Acropolis. I have, what I think is, a fairly accurate history of the Toivonen car (and others) from that event that is completely at odds with those claims

    The car that was (supposed to be) the winner was 119 300 932 registered SM 2929. It sold recently (December 2014) at RM in Paris and the history was posted with it. That stated that after factory use it went to French ownership - firstly to Jean Claude Lagnier where it did the 69 TdF as car #126, 100Km Paris, Rallye Jean de Arc , Tour de Corse, then Criterium de Cevennes. then it went to Marcel Balsa and le mans in 1970 (#62) and again in 71 (#37), Tdf (#130) and Le Mans 72 before going through a number of other french owners including Touroul and Bochand

    On the other hand I have Palmer's car as an ex factory car but Vin 119 300 931 and photos of it at the 71 Monte Carlo and some unidentified places. THAT car was at the Acropolis BUT it was the #4 car SM 2928 for Larousse and Perramond that DNF with a punctured fuel tank. I also have a copy of factory documentation showing it (0931) going to Palmer.

    Hi Hugh

    I don't know anything further tbh but pleased the old FS ad has sparked a mystery. I'll see if I have that c&cc magazine which might shed light. Don't recall which mag the FS ad is from offhand but suspect it is from 73 as that is predominantly my history magazine stash. Off to RAC they have every Autosport and Autocar back to 1899 so can look it up as club librarian and the archivists always helpf to me. Maybe another time as have a busy agenda being London motoring week many events organised by the RAC - attending motoring book of year awards tonight with friends and the motoring lectures day tomorrow so likley won't get time to browse the library or deep archives especially as folks who run and have the keys to the special dusty old corners are probably knee deep in motoring events in lead up to the London Brighton event the club organize with others.

    Dodgy claims on FS ad nothing new it seems ?

    Cheers

    yes a dodgy claim on the ad.... It is always better to claim a car was a winner of a major event and was not a DNF but was it made in good faith because Porsche told Palmer that and he just passed the information along? In the end it really was not material (except in trying to trace the history of these cars) as they were sister cars and almost certainly exactly the same spec
