This car is 10 sixes past my VIN which was built in June 1970, yet it states this car was built in October 1970 and has a door jamb sticker with the VIN and build date of 10/70. A mistaken replacement sticker? Not sure what to think about this.

"...the Porsche was lightly restored cosmetically (commissioned by the Morrisons) and then driven until 1999 when it went back into storage..."

Car has had a full repaint. Yes, that looks like a reproduction VIN sticker. There are are air bubbles underneath it and it appears to be in the wrong location on the door jamb. Reproduction VIN stickers weren't available in 1999 (although, real ones may have been available through Porsche).

The Vin stamped in the front trunk appears to be stamped up from the bottom. Aren't they usually stamped down from the top? Or did that vary? Something's fishy.

Edit: Maybe optical illusion.

A $114K car with KYBs?

I know there is a lot more to the car than that but really?

This looks like a car that was available through Auto Kennel here is So Cal earlier in the year....
The rear wheel fenders are odd for sure.....

Repaint looks a bit thick and the door jams are lumpy. At this price point paint is everything !

And I agree what the heck is going on with the rear fenders, Yikes!

Similar to Mike's car my 2547 is also 7/70. Way too much work performed for a 25K mile car also. I also immediately noticed the -4 trans main case in the pictures.

I looked at those numbers and swore they were raised. Came back a half hour later and looked again and can't figure why I thought they were raised? It must be an optical illusion. Still many suspect details though.

Yeah I think it is just my brain. When I zoom in on the pic it looks raised otherwise it looks normal.

The drivers door is pinching is the top and in the next photo you can see where the paint is missing at the top of the jam. But it is nice looking! Not sure the price will hold up though. It does have "CHICK IVERSON " a Plate bracket :-)
