911 1974 Carrera VIN

Body

Vehicle Information: Model: Carrera; Year: 1974; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: 189000;

Hi,I just purchased a 1974 Carrera Targa. The VIN is 9114440080 and engine number is 6345787. This car was owned, titled and licensed in CA for over thirty years by the previous owner who bought it when it was 6 months old.( I have paper work to verify this) My research indicates the sixth digit on the VIN should be a 1, not a 4 and the fourt engine digit should be a 0,1 or 2. None of these numbers match any documentation I can find. I thought maybe numbers had been altered but I pulled carpeting under hood and found the matching VIN embossed in the body and it looks like it would have been impossible for those to have been changed. All three VINs match.Are these sort of inconsistencies common? Could this car be a very late production model that was imported late? Any ideas?thanks, clif
