Thread: Early 901 Schutzed Dash?

  1. #1

    Early 901 Schutzed Dash?

    I recently saw some photos of the 901 #6 which belongs to the Ruf Family. I noticed the dash appears to be Schutzed. Thats the first time I've seen it. Does anyone know if this was common on very early cars or is this a more of a one off? Pics below:

    Never seen anything like that on a Porsche.
    Could the British finish that you are thinking of been called "Hammertone," although I don't remember that coating having been so rough in its presentation.

    This kind of coating, much less structure, is also on the turn signal / wiper housing on an early 911.
    Never seen it on the dash, but of course this car is one of a kind.

    seen structure on some early cars (even 65) but way way less than on #6 similar to what richard mentioned. this looks like they wanted to mimic schrumpflack .

    That is a "wrinkle" finish, sometimes called crackle finish. Hammertone is a smooth finish but looks like fish scales.

    it is very very difficult to judge and If I look at the pictures of #6 in Geneve, or any other available shots,
    „wrinkle schrumpflack“…

    For comparison how it’s on the turn / wiper switch housing on early cars.

    Very interesting to get "the full" story.. or as close to it as probably anyone but Alois Ruf can give us. Thank you Haul and all who responded.

    I had been in Pfaffenhausen and have seen #6 in person. Mr Ruf told me, that this is the way he received the car in 1968…with this sort of wrinkle finish. He agreed on the difficult to judge pictures of the dash on Geneva. The hand grip is also not available in Geneva and only to be assumed on later shots.


    Richard, can you upload a sharp view of the coating, please ?
