1981 Volvo 242 GLT
Tiger Claws II (1996)
night cub wrote The Volvo looks like a rare model, a 2-door, with GLT or Turbo model blackout trim, 1981+ taillights, and pre-1983 bumpers, but the chrome on the bumper is throwing me off. Turbos had all-black bumpers, so I'm thinking this might be a non-Turbo GLT.

1965 Porsche 911 [901]
À belles dents (1966)
We are thinking about same, have very similar knowledge, just going different ways. :sun:

dsl wrote "Externally the 1966 model could be recognised by its straight (as opposed to angled) 911 script"
.

Did autor think about '1966 model' as '1967 model year'?
I don't think so. This change (slant-to-horizontal '911') happened at holiday break 1966.

The Porsche parts' supplier gives an answer about slant 911 emblem:
http://www.sierramadrecollection.com/store/Emblems-Decals-c115/
Precisely:
Link to "www.sierramadrecollection.com"
'This emblem was used up to chassis #305100', usually (not always!) recognized as last 1966 MY car.

dsl wrote So back to this example. 1966 plate date, so should have slant 911 badge, but removed for some reason.


Few grams less. :) Possible, of course. However the plate date isn't good proof also.
Sample: the first competition 911 prototype #300055 was re-registed. Since January 1965 had German plates, for November 1966 French one.

1965 Porsche 911 [901]
À belles dents (1966)
I have been done some (comparing-best-samples) investigation. :sun:

Let's compare 1964-1965 cars because it seems I'm wrong also.
Did Porsche add the slant '911' badge in January 1965?

No. 300049, the oldest 911 in US. Manufactured October 1964. Just 'Porsche' lettering.

No. 300133. Strange, with slant '911' badge (added later?). Manufactured November 1964.

No. 300170. Lonely 'Porsche' lettering. Manufactured probably early December 1964, delivered December 18th, 1964.

No. 300176. Lonely Porsche 'lettering'. Completed early December 1964 probably.

No. 300182. Lonely 'Porsche' lettering. Completed December 1964 probably.
[Image: 300182_1_th.jpeg]

No. 300221. Lonely 'Porsche' lettering. Completed December 22th, 1964.

No. 300278. Manufactured January 14th 1965. Has slant 911 badge already.

No. 300724. Made April 7th, 1965. With slant 911 badge.

No. 301945. Completed August 27th 1965.

No. 302474. Completed April 10th, 1965. Slant 911 badge. Interesting, higher number made earlier. And both cars (#301945 & 302474) have certificates!

No. 303443. Slant badge. Manufactured August 1965 probably. Sold February 2nd 1967.

No. 303982. 1966 MY. Completed September 1965 probably.

No. 304086. Manufactured summer 1966.

No. 305202. 1967 MY. Completed September 1966 probably.

So...

Early PO-R-S-C-H-E lettering was used to 1966 MY.
Individual P O R S C H E letters came from 1967 MY.

It seems the slant '911' emblem was used from January 1965 up to no. 305100 (August 1966), so started three months before 912 production run even.

I think it's worth to change (from 1965 to 1964) the model year of our oldest series 911 samples with any '911' tail emblems.

1965 Porsche 911 [901]
À belles dents (1966)
dsl wrote I've got 2 books which disagree with each other. And with 130rapid.


Nothing unusual. I write articles to 'ClassicAuto' magazine and the sources claim different dates many times.

dsl wrote I think I'll go and lie down in my quiet room ...


Wait! Let's split these different versions, maybe we'll find an answer. :sun:
The trouble is lettering's changes were made in mid MYs, I suppose.
2014-10-06 20:41
1965 Porsche 911 [901]
À belles dents (1966)
Older 911 had this lettering also.
The angled extra-script (absent here) was added mid-1965, to distinguish 911 and 912.

1961 Volkswagen 1200 Deluxe [Typ 1]
Phoenix (1992-1993)
'Beetle' is (very popular) but nickname still.
Australian 50s advertisments said just 'Volkswagen'.
Only one genuine 1955 advertisment claimed '5-seater Saloon'.
Time to time you can read 'Deluxe' name.
Info about 1961 new 66 cars fleet for Avis rent-a-car use the name '1200 Deluxe'
The '1200 Standard' was available for 1963.

Available first time for sedan in 1970.

London - The Modern Babylon (2012)
The similar match is... 1949 Fiat 1500 E only. Only similar.
However, if we know 1936 as correct date of this event, Fiat 1500 is excluded with easy.
Because that time it had flush headlights.
Large quarter windows in front doors also (for A to E serie).

1938 Fiat 1500 B
