G & R Automobile metal tag?

I just purchased a 1978 911 Targa. In the glovebox I found a long metal tag:
stampings are in "quotes".

"PORSCHE"
MFD. BY:
"G & R AUTOMOBILE
MANNHEIM GERMANY"
IMPORTED BY:
(left blank)
DATE OF MFG. "1978"
GVWR "1500 KG"
GVWR FRONT "650 KG"
GAWR REAR "930 KG"
VIN "911...."
TYPE "911"

This is a ROW car.
Anyone seen this tag before?
Thanks,
John

That’s from when theyimported it and federalized the car making it US legal. It’s usually on the driver’s door jam.

check inside the doors for a side impact bar. They were not "delicate" installing US legal stuff.
