and the trunk stamping looks a bit too tidy as well .....

That trunk ID plate is also a replacement, look at the vin stamping type font, its not even close to original!!

It would be interesting to know what the trunk stamp shows. Was the stamp in a different location on the 6's.

Just noticed that the A pillar VIN tag is a poor reproduction as well. The Karmann number in the rear trunk on sixes is in the middle close to the bumper bulkhead.

Uh Oh!! This car is in the World vin database with a warning about the ID plates and a picture is posted of the front trunk plate and it looks different. Looks like Auto Kennel had the listing back then.

Man......youz guys sure know how to pick fly sheeeet out of the pepper.
Radius-ed rear wheels wells, fake tags......oh' mommy what a cluster.
They are asking how much?..............shifty eyes and bad shoes

These types of issues remind me of fake Sunbeam Tigers, of which I was involved in for years, until I wasn't.
Some fake Tigers were so well done it fooled some of the experts until the cars were exposed by other experts.

Thanks for the continuing education on this one. Still learning.

All of their cars seem pricey. The green Benz for $395k? Really?

Nice detective work Mike. This does appear to be the hot potato that Auto Kennel pulled because of questionable history. Has any member contacted the current seller? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)

How in the world do you make that car right after posting photos of it with two different stampings? Which one is real and which one is Memorex?? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) Altered wheel openings, strange windshield post tag... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif) Is PT Barnum selling that car?

A $114K car with a -4 tranny ?


What is the difference between a 4 and 6 tranny? I understand the tail and side shift difference, I just didn’t know there were differences between the 4 and 6 tail shifters.

Look on parts for sale on this site ... Fubawa ( or something like that) has a 901 with ZF LSD represented as a 914-6 box and the posts pretty much discuss the differences.
I believe there are pics of where numbers are as well and the different markings

I just know that the Six transaxles had the serial number on a flat section next to the spine of the transaxle. Here is mine:
