Just a week ago I found one of the early ones, number 1743.
It was delivered as the 47th 924 in The Netherlands in 1976 (in 1976 Porsche delivered 87 924's in The Netherlands).
Although it's in driving condition a lot still needs to be done to it. So this is a project for the comings months. For this summer I have planned a roadtrip with it to The Porsche Museum in Stuttgart to visit the theme exposition "The Transaxle Era".
So "taking the baby home to its roots" after 40 years...
