    (Part 3 of 3 - although it tells me at one point that maximum message length is 10,000 characters, it won't let me send a message of more than 1000 characters.)

    As I see that your interests include 914s and you are keeper of paint codes, I thought you might have an idea of how this came to be. Did Hans or Franz just have a bad day back in November of 1974? I can send pics if that will be of any help.

    Any ideas on how the paint code tag can be wrong? Have you ever run across something similar? Thanks for your input on my mystery.

    (Part 2 of 3) This car is in very good condition - no rust, and no signs of ever having any body work done. I have records back to the original owner, as well.

    I asked PCNA for their opinion, and here is the response I received today:

    Hello Mr. Morsman,

    I have reviewed your comments and the kardex for your vehicle.

    I have confirmed the exterior color of your vehicle is recorded as Scarlett (Mars) Red/H3. The L20C & L31M are paint codes and not listed on COA's. We only list the Porsche exterior color code. The paint code is not recorded on the kardex (just the exterior color code).

    I cannot advise why this may not match the tag in your vehicle. I can confirm that the kardex and how Germany recorded the vehicle was Scarlett (Mars) Red. The kardex cannot be provided.

    Kindest Regards,

    (Multi-part message) I have an interesting issue with my '75 914. The COA and paint color of the car do not match the paint code found on the Karmann door jamb.

    According to the COA, the original color is "Scarlet (Mars) Red/H3." Although the car has been repainted, it's clear from parts that were not repainted, such as around the brake master cylinder and fuel tank, inside both trunks, under the carpet, etc., that this is the original color of the car.

    However, the paint code on the Karmann tag on the front of the driver's door jamb gives the paint code as "L 20 C," which is Nepal Orange. There isn't a speck of Nepal Orange on the car.

    The chassis number on the door jamb tag matches the number on the tag near the right headlight support in the front trunk, so it's incredibly unlikely that anyone has ever switched the paint code tag from another car. The serial number on the COA matches the windshield tag and the door jamb sticker.

    i am after some information on production id numbers
    From your post you look to know somethings
    My car is vin of 911430#@$ 1974 S
    yet the production number under the left hand knew pad has the first numbers 1037***
    from your post that would make the car a 73. it appears to me to be pre 74 but converted to impact bumper, eg standard tyre petrol tank,battery boxes
    engine and gear box later model
    Are there any other places that a vin maybe or is it possible to track a vin from a production number
    The car has been in Aust for 20 plus years
    Any help or contract would be appreciated

    I was thinking of it, more as a spectator than a participant. Van is long gone, so cannot carry what I did the last time. But I do have my tools. I wonder what Mike might want for a 911 trans.
    How many have paid up?
