    What are some rare options you might find on an early T,E,or S?

    Rear Wiper?
    Electric Windows?
    Some sort of revised heater?
    Certain Driving or Fog lamps?

    The VDO external thermometer was a very rare option on the early cars. It would fit in front of the shift lever in a specially made tin enclosure covered in vinyl. I have seen one on Ebay, and one in a '71S. The thermometer is still available by VDO, but not in chrome ring version.

    The dictating Blaupunkt that was an option on Toms' (Sithot) car would have to be rather rare.

    I've always considered the glass to be half full...that is until I reached middle age and realized that it is actually half empty.

    I had that on a '77 911 Targa. I thought it was somewhat rare. I had no idea that it existed before the mid year cars came out.

    I don't think you'll find many cars with the suitcase straps, travelling bag, suitcase, or shirt case designed for the rear seat area.

    Sunroof on an S car is still pretty rare. Love the 'no rust' option. Factory AC is rare, but there were reasons people didn't order them (same reason a lot of folks pull them out and save em in a box - they don't work well).

    Some cars had various window tints (mine had a 'green tint'), but if you can find an original windshield, its probably in bad shape unless you find a concours garage queen.

    Anything from the Special Wishes dept is rare, but I haven't heard of too many Kardex's on this bboard that had those.
