So the only thing that you can surmise from the single headlight motor is that it was done with factory parts but may not be a Factory Slant Nose 930S. Mine has the RUF Valence. The Duel Exhaust that appears in the pics above appear to be the RUF Duel Exhaust as well.


edit: The conversion was done by Exclusive Motorwerks, a RUF Distibuter, in NY. Ultra-Smith did electronics, stereo's and stuff like that and used this car as a demonstrator.
Correct..
Exclusive Motorwerks was The authorized RUF distributor in the during the 80's.. & Ultrasmith (in NY) did amazing and carefully executed sound systems.. they also did the remote Escort radar detector installs. had one in one of my cars.

Judging by what you describe regarding the single motor set-up on your slant nose conversion, the parts may have been sourced through Alan Johnson Racing as they offered conversions using factory parts..

Note that niether your valnce nor your exhaust appear to be Ruf items.. any interior or engine shots?

Nice looking car btw!
