Just to be funny someone with the latch with the vw logo go buy a flat piece of Alunium and bolt it to it with to bolts as tight as you can and see if there is any raised letters. It won't happen the steel will flex. VW stamped there parts on Porsches..

Ok then do a test: you or the new owner put a drop of paint stripper on the logo. See how paint stripper dissolves aluminum.

True, just bolting the steel latch to the aluminum will not transfer the stamping, but years of driving while it's slightly fretting together will transfer an impression. Just my .02 centavos.

Don't forget the primer and paint. The latch is not bolted to naked alloy.

Regardless it's still a super cool tail and well worth the money he was asking.

Man Fred we need some details or a build post on that engine and the car. 1800 lbs and 374 hp at 9300 sounds fun. Crazy fun! I have a 2100 lb 300 hp at 7300 car and it's a blast and can't imagine how much fun yours is.

Sounds like one of your race motors, Fred. Do you detune at all for the street?

Tail

In the early 80,s I had a customer with an early 75 Turbo he bought from an employee from Porsche.It had this tail with the underside done the same.It also had vacuum assist brakes but no part numbers on the aluminum housing.I was at Peter Dawes shop about 2 years ago and they were restoring the 1st RH drive 930 that was built for the mayor of Hong Kong in 1974.That had vacuum assist brakes with no part numbers on the housing.Rhode Scholars has this car for sale right now in NC.I never checked the underside of the tail on the 75 with a magnet for aluminum or steel.I found a picture of the front and will look for a pic of the tail because I do not remember if it had the larger grill opening.Point is back then early production cars had some different parts put on depending on what was sitting around.Interesting to have seen 2 cars with power assist well before 1977 production.They used pressure fed tensioners on some cars as far back as 79.Ciao Fred

Yes you are right - for there is no impression on it if it was tightened over 1300 lbs of force...it was simply impressed of the reversed BUM VW logo on it that is probably on the softer part like undercoat area on the latch area...or perhaps when it was fresh painted at that time and the latch was installed right away caused the impression of the VW logo - hence it made a raised letters when tightened no more than 18 lbs of force.
