356/8 It was a 1300 normal. A plain jane car but I guess that makes it kind of rare for a 53 to have a 1300 normal. I see lots of 1500's but not many 1300's.

Very cool Jim! Yes, very rare. I've only seen one other 1300 with the 356/8 designation. Nice confirmation of what these arcane numbers mean.

There was some wrong information published in the Registry magazine several years ago on what these model designations referred to, plus some wrong information from Porsche itself in some old documents, so I've been trying to dig up actual cars with actual chassis tags with actual model designations on them to sort it all out. =)

Just thought it would be useful to know that I have just received the package with the fuse board Tom Coughlin directed me to on The Samba site and it is superb. The service from the supplier GR & Sons of Laguna beach was also simply superb.
Thanks Tom for pointing me in the right direction & George the supplier
