    It's nobody's business what cars I own. I will tell you one thing though, they're air cooled and I beat 'em like they owe me money.

    Allow me one comment :-) Description says "very original condition" Well... shouldn't the underside be body-color instead of rattle-can black?

    Funny you mention that. A gent I know asked me to look at a car he was buying (photos only). It was an "E" being offered by one of the buy 'em put 'em back together shops and then hit a home-run.

    The very 1st thing I noticed was the tachometer. It was the wrong item. I mean sore thumb wrong. Redline was "T"/"SC" range. I was astounded that this place who pride themselves about their cars could
    overlook such a detail.

    I think the speedo is correct. Early ones went to 250. Later ones went to 300.

    Mobius911 is correct, and the early one's that went only to 250 had CHROME buttons, as does the one on the RS. Peter's picture/link, that one has to later and (incorrect to an RS) black button.
    You could always check the DATE STAMP on the back of the speedo. For a RS this early in production, I would imagine the stamp would be 11/72 or thereabouts.
