    Ian, txs.
    would be interesting to see whether your damper is mounted on the same side as for the LHD cars. Any pics? If so, it would prove the hypothesis that the extra mounting console was designed to also suit use in RHD cars.

    No idea how the casting dates can be so early. Yr rack is the same as for my 301379 May 1965 (the rack is mounted and i do not have good pictures other than before restoration).

    It looks like the parts took 6-9 months between casting and assembly at ZF, and then 1-2 more months to get to the car assembly line. Looks like despite the design innovations taking place they (ZF) continued to use the old design parts on stock.

    back to Philippe's original question: I think indeed the one that came off 300090 is the earliest we have seen, but I am still not clear on the serial numbers. Were these racks from ZF also used in other cars than the Porsche 911 in 1964 or early 1965?

    Kardex /Antenna option

    The Kardex (for 911) indicates ordered options like radio or webasto.
    Does the kardex indicates an antenna option when no radio was ordered?
    Thanks,

    Txs! Looks like the double sided mounting consoles for the damper were indeed designed to also allow use for RHD cars. As the design change coincides with the moment the RHD cars came along, looks like proof. Cheers!

    Great to see that the very early ones had a different design apparently.
    Is this original then? and I shouldn't throw it away :-)Name:  IMG_20200111_123228.jpg

    This looks like the polymer one that I believe is correct for yr car. Txs for picture, first time I see a RHD luggage room, pretty much reconfigured!

    Front and rear axles paint and finish

    Hi experts,
    We are about to restore the front and rear axles, suspensions, brakes, etc of the #90.
    We need your knowledge in order to avoid mistakes:
    • What was the type of paint / finish used in 1964?
    • Where could we source the correct screws, nuts, washers?


    Thanks for your help

    Philippe

    Origin of this BILSTEIN AB jack

    Any idea of the origin of this jack?
    Would this jack be correct for my 1964 911?
    Thanks for your help.
