There is a list at the back of Jenkinson’s From Chain-Drive to Turbo-Charger of the half dozen or so 904s that came to the UK in period. There have been others since, of course, but these are the cars that were here when new, or newish. The first car on the list is chassis 904-025 – the light metallic green car ordered by Stirling Moss’s SMART outfit. The unusual colour – vomit green to its critics – was chosen because it looked good in black and white! The ...

The tiny details matter. To some of us anyway! We recently spent some time researching the details of glove box lids on early RHD 911s. This is what we found. On cars from the 1965-66 model years, the lock was towards the top of the lid in the middle with a small pull-handle above and the model designation was in italics on the right. It was the same layout as on LHD cars of the same period. Examples are shown in John Bolster's April 1966 Autocar road test of FGX 911C and, in a picture of ...
