    Coupers,

    I was going through the old pics and something caught my eye that I hadn't noticed before, the two-tone E9 (how many could there be/been ?!?! ...ha ha)

    Anybody know anything about this mystery E9 (Salzburg or Zandfordt, circa 1971) with the two-tone Alpina like paint parked in the Schnitzer paddock? A defector? ;-)

    Licence plate starts with 'REI...' The plates I have seen with the early two-tone Alpinas have started with KF SC...

    Possibly a customer or company 'road' car? It does not have the Grp 2 'bubble flares' of the period which makes me think it is a Grp 1 or 'road car'.

    Neat. ;-)

    Do you have a larger resolution lbk
    It was also a '72 built in September of '71.

    I was wondering how you spotted the REI plate with that terrible pic. Let me enhance with my evening-crime drama technical skills...
