Saleroom Addendum

*Please note this vehicle is sold on a Bill of Sale. Please note that Porsche historian John Starkey has recently updated his research on this car. According to Mr. Starkey’s corrected provenance, the car was sold from Gerard Meo to Andre Jaussoin in 1976, and then to Phillipe Roux in 1977, and not M. Raymond Touroul, as stated in the catalogue. Please also note that Mr. Starkey has clarified this car’s extensive race history from 1975 until 1979. The auction catalogue’s references and archival images of racing this period should be disregarded, in favor of the following corrected record:
Tour de France Automobile, September 1975, Egretaud / "Fancy", No 198 (10th Overall)
Championnat de France des Rallyes Gr 3 1976 – 1978
Championnat de France de la Montagne Gr 3 1976 - 1978
