    Derek,

    You are correct about this VIN plate. It is an early replacement plate used to replace the original one. I say 'early' because it is has KG instead of AG. Also look at the rivets, those are not original either. The seller doesn't show photos of the truck VIN stamping or the engine # but does list the production #. This can be used by an interested buyer to confirm the originality of the car.

    That car has been on eBay a few times from the same seller. I have see it advertised for 125K, then 138.5K and now 199K Euro's....No wonder it 's no seller, especially with all the modifications done like RSR suspension, black trim, race oil cooler etc.

    $271,000 for a non matching RS .......

    http://www.classicdriver.com/uk/maga...0.asp?id=13505

    Celebrating 10 years of motor car and automobilia sales at Quail Lodge, Bonhams achieved nearly $9 million in total sales, the lack of several Ďbig-ticketí cars in comparison to other houses leading to a comparatively lower overall total. One of the higher sellers was this 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Touring formerly in the collection of the late LA Times publisher Otis Chandler, selling for $271,000.

    naparsei,

    I case Derek doesn't see this I can answer your question, no #197 is not for sale. It is a very original RS owned by one of our own on the Board and he will likely hang on this great car for many years.

    "1973 Porsche Carrera RS 2.7 #1225

    1225th of 1580 examples completed. The 225th car of the series three production batch.

    This was a normal "M472" or "Touring" model.

    Sold for new for West German domestic road use and delivered new (UN-waxed) with Road Registration. Completed in May of 1973.

    The Facts:

    Chassis No. 9113601225

    Engine No. 6631188

    Matching numbers.

    The car was originally built like this:

    Year 1973

    Make Porsche

    Model 911 Carrera RS 2.7

    Type M472 Touring

    Chassis 911 360 1225

    Engine 663 1188

    Engine Type 911/83

    G-box 783 1183

    Gearbox Type 915

    Color 222516 (Grand Prix White Red Carrera Graphics)

    Interior black

    This car was factory built with option codes:

    M409 Sport Seats left and right.

    M419 Retractable seat-belts left and right..........now has full harness left and right

    M440 Retractable antenna left and loudspeaker.

    Now it has RS light weight door panels

    Speedo KM reads 6983 That is 106983 KMs converted to miles is 67400 miles. This RS runs and handles great with

    only a few small details in the paint. This RS is priced to sell and has all the original numbers and original hard to find parts. Engine and gearbox are stong. Syncros are great. Suspension is tight. Car has been repainted its original color as some point in its life. Drives great at highway speeds and around town.

    This car has spent a large portion of its life in Japan which is one reason for the low mileage. Always appreciating and exciting to own and drive!"
