    Referred here from one of the license plate frame threads.

    Piecing together my car's early history. 1972 911T, early build in 8/71. I've been told the dealer code is UAT, which appears to be Los Angeles/Tourist delivery.

    Not sure what actual LA-area dealer helped the first owner place the order. The warranty booklet has a hand-written delivery date of Oct. 4, 1971 (04/10/71 in European date format). I'm assuming that is the date of delivery here in the states, not at the factory tourist delivery, since the mileage at delivery (in the same handwriting) is shown as 01932. So a short 1900 mile vacation in Europe after delivery?

    Dealer number is written in as 422-A08.

    In the dealer stamp area there is a hand-written note of "Dr. Ing h.c.F. Porsche" that also appears to be written by the same person as the date and mileage notations. Over that is the dealer stamp of "VOLKSWAGEN PACIFIC INC. Culver City, Ca. 90230"

    I've gathered that 422-A08 indicates a Porsche/Audi dealer supplied by VW Pacific, but which one? I haven't seen the A08 in other threads yet.

    Any thoughts or comments?

    In my data it seems 422-A08 is actually Volkswagen Pacific Inc. at the same address despite the stamp showing 000 in the right corner. So perhaps their service dept?

    OK, that makes sense. So it looks like my car was special ordered for factory delivery via VW Pacific. Probably not an important bit of knowledge, but fun to track down.

    Here's the info I was given by the seller of my car. Apparently he got this from a Porsche contact in the UK.

    -9112100317
    engine 6120560
    color 8080=silvermetallic
    interior 11=leatherette black
    dealer UAT=Los Angeles/Tourist delivery
    options 400=alloy wheels 6x15
    404=stabilizer front/rear
    453=Blaupunkt Frankfurt
    470=Comfort
    559=cooling system
    568=colored windows

    Obviously the translations from German in the UK are no better than those for CoAs here in the US. The '
    559=cooling system ' is factory A/C.

    The factory A/C and factory installed Frankfurt (rather than the more typical antenna/speaker for dealer radio) seem to be a bit unusual for a T coupe unless it was Tourist delivery. So I'm thinking this was all correct.
