Front Script

#1 Post by Helge Tielker » Thu Oct 26, 2017 8:29 am

Guys,
some of our tubs late A and 1st BT5 have a front script PORSCHE.
I would love to know whether it is the same as the script on the back.
Does anyone has one alvailable or does anyone has the right measurement so that I can identify the right one.
We had the discussion earlier and I have seen on an older pic of our car from december 04 1959 that originally our car has been equipped with this script.

any help is highly appreciated.

I have read that the front script was smaller. I will see if I can find the discussion. See Jon Bunin's comment about size: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=37488&start=0

posting.php?mode=quote&f=1&p=120251 So per John Willhoit front and rear were the same size on the early B,and larger than the front script on the A cars per Jon Bunin's post. Hope this helps you.

Thanks Doug
Thats what I was hoping for cause I have an original script which I had removed from the front in early days. I wasn’t sure it should be in place. But my car is dec 4th 1959 - so ... it should be there

How about T-5 owners with front scripts they KNOW are original, measure them and post the results here....that should either clear things up, or really muddy the waters.....

Thanks for the Picture Max....but, you must remember that you are in Australia, so you'll need to flip your pictures for us up in this side of the planet...

Greg, if your car is Nr. 52 it should have a producition dat before 1960 ;) - our car T5 is from 04 december 1959 .. so yours should by end of august or september .. if it is 31 of august or 20 september I am intersted in your car even more ;)

Helge
#108970 was "born" on Sept 29th 1959..according to the C.O.A.
It was the 52'nd one off the line, and the 22'nd 1600 'Normal'....engine # 600122
Seems that the T-5's don't get as much 'love' as the A and the T-6's....
