Gorgeous car, it's one of the 429 LHD 3.0 Liter cars built from 9/72 through 6/73.

It says in the above posted certificate that it was built in May, 1973, which makes it one of the last LHD models built.

More on the car:

However, the info on the link above is wrong, where the guy claims that it has a 'strong' 3.3 Liter engine. The CSL never came with a 3.3 Liter engine. Only the final version of the CSLs were fitted with an enlarged M30 with a capacity of 3,153cc.

According to the date of production, this car should have a 3,003cc engine. Only cars that were produced from 7/73 through 10/73 and from 1/74 through 10/75 had the larger engine.

PS: all the CSLs were produced at the Karmann Werke in Rhein and not in Munich, as it's written in the certificate
