I thought that was the car I called Malcolm motors and talked to the wife sue I think her name is and she told me that she has every window sticker of the cars they sold . as I was talking to her I asked her how many white 69 road runner did they sell and she told me that that was the only white one and that it is a low production color .when I told her I have a real white one she in a stern voice she said that I need to put it back to the right color .it was great talking to her about the car # 167 and that she would like me to send her pictures of mine which I did after the car was painted .
I still don't know how many W1 W1 69 road runner where made . but that car went to the right person great story

Did original starters have a label of any kind on them?

Mike, there is really a lot we have in common Smiley  
 
"You do not even go somewhere else, I tell you there's nothing like Munich. Everything else is a waste of time in Germany" Ernest Hemingway
 
Great story, thank you for sharing it with me. Yes, the old airport Riem is now the Munich fair. It's on my way to work, so I drive by every day. With the other motorcycle company you certainly mean KTM. They produce great motorcycles. Smiley But as you might image, I like BMW more, they're on a good way. I also drive a BMW as a daily driver, so does my wife.  
 
I love my triple green Charger, although it's not the most popular color. I would like to own a green A12 SuperBee. But if it has another color, I wouldn't mind. Wink

Out of curiosity,how would you explain the over spray ? I have three of these,all N.O.S.,1972 production and I would assume they were painted before assembly!

Did the power lead at the starter terminal end also change with the 560 starter?

i would guess that's remnants of black overspray on the casting....
 
Here's another Restored Starter...Not on an A12 car...but shows the overspray:

From the Archives, the 8400 mile Bee, 309948, wearing a "560" starter as indicated by the TSB above.  This starter does have the black hot lead insulator, but does not appear to have the tar sealer on it.
 
Over spray from the barrel?  Again, not sure what I am looking at, dirt or paint?

From the Archives, the Butter Bee, 301771.  This is a "150" starter.  There is a tar type sealer placed around the hot lead.  It is visible in the picture.  Speaking with John at Almost NOS today, this is something he has seen many times.
 
It is hard to tell if this is a black or white "insulator" by the hot lead.  Almost NOS said they have only seen white on the "150" starters, and I agree with them at this point.
 
There is discussion about the starter barrel being painted after assembly indicated by over spray on the aluminum housing.  Does this starter have the over spray or not?  Not sure what I am looking at, paint or ????

The display said it was sold at Malcolm Motors.
