Thread: Mystery 911 S ?

  1. #1

    Mystery 911 S ?

    I purchased a car that was stolen and recovered from the 70's... It was issued a NYS vin number but everything that was original to the vin is missing! I do mean everything. Engine numbers, trans, all the normal vin number plates and even the production number behind the dash pad.

    BUT... I did find a perfectly clear production number under the dash pad! 1002937... (sorry for the upside down pics, posting off the phone). Now the question, how do I find a vin to match my production number?

    I contacted COA but they weren't much help... Back in the good old days they'd offer some serious info Where do I go from here?

    I think the car was originally Albert Blue? (currently black)

    Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated! At this point, seems like a great driver and I'm excited to get it on the road again. It has been stored since the early 90's! It would be a blast to find the original build info for this car. I think it's hiding more than I know!

    Options:
    Sport Seats
    Oil lines through the body
    S bumpers
    911/2 engine stamp (missing all other numbers)
    6" fuchs
    front mount oil cooler
    higher RPM tach

    Thanks 928cs for that info. I'm hoping to figure out the vin number that is associated with this production number. I've come up short with COA :/ DaveP has given me a in-between and that's very helpful but I'm hoping I can get an exact based off the production numbers. It has some exciting options and I'd love to know if it was ordered this way or just outfitted afterwards.

    Indeed, you would have to start with range of values for the combinations VIN-production number for the three series available for the 1970 MY: T, E and S, and then narrow them as much as possible around your production number.


    911 T Coupé 911 010 0001-100???? 911 010 2418-100????
    911 E Coupé 911 020 0001-100???? 911 020 1304-100????
    911 S Coupé 911 030 0001-100???? 911 030 1744-100????

    May not look all-that promising --- but I think you have the most important bit . . .

    . . . the production number

    Here's what I did . . .

    My suggestion is to contact the Archives at the Porsche Museum . . . tell them everything that you know about your car --- + be sure to include all the documentation that shows you're the owner . . .


    . . . then ask for their help

    Can't hurt . . .



    . . . + good luck


    HtH!
