Hi Everyone,

I have a 79 NA originally from Italy, with AC and snailshell/dogleg transmission, and the most weird is it has a turbo front spoiler (94450303500). VIN 92491100xx.

I'm about to have historic registration exam. so I need to provide some documentation for the original parts.

Is there any official information on proving that this NA had a turbo front spoiler? Basically, the same question would be for the dogleg either.


thanks

Dogleg/Snailshell were fitted in early N/A. This is a different gearbox than in 931. Not sure about the spoiler.

I assume '79 should not be counted as 'early'.

How to make sure which one I have?

There should be some online catalogue for the 1979 924 showing the dogleg gearbox.
I have an early NA parts car that also came with the dogleg..and strangely this car also had the 931 nose and front chin
But i'm 100% sure the front end is a modification that was done sometime in the 90s.

thanks. which year is your car?

all I've found about the dogleg is on 924.org stating that

Quote:

"in '79, a 5-speed trans based on 915 internals (the trans used in late-70's 911's) was introduced.

Part # 94450303500 (477-805-581-A, 477805581A, 944-503-035-00) - spoiler

Apparently this is the Turbo version of the front lower valance panel like this one. PN was just updated. Maybe it was a factory or dealer install

Also I have a 79 NA with a 5 speed dogleg factory option. This is the 016Y, or 016Z Euro likely in your case, and these have the 20mm input shaft but are identical to their US or Euro G31 counterparts internally after 1st gear.

Just an update on the original reasoning of the question:

the car passed the historic exam and the MOT, another 5 years of joy ensured!

btw, I also contacted a Porsche Center in the UK which is qualified for restoration, they had a 1988(ish) 924S restoration with this Turbo front valance.

I asked them if this is factory or not, they answered that was a definite modification, but they have just left it like that, and it was sold for a pretty nice price finally.

You can check the car here, very decent pictures (and I like that color actually, I even found the project through an other topic here asking about the green signal color):

thanks for everyone who contributed.
