    I've just got word that it is possible for me to get the VIN, but at double the usual cost of a Kardex.

    a 1970 911S. Close to the 911S VIN that I had with a close production number. That made the search easier I'd expect.

    Updates!
    DaveP was super helpful and was able to obtain info regarding the vin based off the production number... But, it comes back to a white car with basic options. Some more notes about this car. It has a factory sport exhaust, Recaro sport seats with tilting brackets, and I believe it to be Albert Blue. I've been all around this car and there is not a sign of white anywhere. Some suggest maybe a factory repaint? I have researched every vin before and after what is suspected and included engine / trans numbers when available. What is weird, this engine is way out of sequence compared to the others. Maybe because it was held for paint? I posted my collected info in the 911 vin reference thread. Anyone with thoughts, input, speculations? I'm all ears

    „Comfort Equipment“ listed on above CoAc is an option for 2.2T only but not for any 2.2S, because any 2.2S has this (S-bumpers, Gold lettering, S-carpet, Oil temp instrument, Chrome door sill plate, Chrome rocker plate ) as standard.

    And yep, CoA have faults..i would call them and insist that „Comfort Equipment“ is not available for a 1970 911S and they provide a wrong info.
    While saying this, tell them its Albert Blue and cannot be Ivory.


    Btw those cocomats look period and could be factory/dealer supplied, keep them or do not throw away. The carpet might be of later make and door lock on B-pillar is usually chrome, looks painted black, as the front vent grills.
    Gear knob and steering wheel probably period and great Recaro seats with the correct, perforated bolsters.
