    How to trace history of an old car

    Hello everyone, I am always fascinated by Mr. Marcel Massini in the Ferrari world. He is an expert of everything Ferrari. He is able to tell the ownership and sometimes service stories of a 60s car that was not even his! Is there such equivalent in the early 911 world?

    I would love to learn more about my 1967.

    Beside asking the previous owner where did he get it from etc, what would be a good starting point to try to retrace the history of my 1967?
    Are there any tools online available?

    My vin is 911307407 (which I really like how 2 of the numbers added up equal the ending of a 3 number serie both times. Yes I am weird).

    Best,
    Andre

    Should be a fun search! Right off the bat, that’s not the makings of a ‘67 VIN. It might be a ‘70 but is missing a digit. Could you validate the number?

    PS - you might be meaning 307407 which would be a ‘67 VIN. Talk to davep about the Kardex for the car.

    Do you have a Kardex for the car? If not I would start there. Some will have the first owner on it such as the one for our 356. DaveP can help you get one if you don't already.

    HDA - PM user DaveP. He got both of mine for our 65 and 69. In the thread below he responds on post #12.

    If you’re willing to share, let’s see pics of the VIN locations (trunk, door jamb, maintenance manual, etc.).

    You have a 1967 911 for sure. DaveP will be able to tell you much more.
