1976 Police car, build numbers.

Hi, just joined.
Looking for a bit of advice, I am usually involved in old military vehicles, however things happen and here I am.
I have recently bought a 1970’s ex police car (Belgium) it has been in a barn/ garage for the last 35 years.
A lot of 6 were bought in the mid eighties direct from the police auction, all in bits and varying states of repair, of the 6, two were stripped and sold, 1 was brought back and used, then sold, 2 went away (no idea) and the last one remained in the garage with around a 100 other cars.
the car is a 911 Targa, the stainless steel section behind the front seats has the holes for the blue light to mount on. It would seem the car is 1976 or 1977 police build narrow body 2.7.
I would like to confirm build numbers for theses specific vehicles, I have the numbers from under the bonnet and on the dash metal frame.
 
any advice appreciated.
Thank you.

    A Google search which I guess you may had done brought up numerous bits of info including:-
    -------------
    It's always fun to learn about cool, obscure versions of our favorite cars. This ultra-limited production 911 police car is one of just 2o built for the Belgian police force in the 1970s, and Petrolicious put together a video documenting just how hard it was for the owner to actually find and acquire it.

    Thanks jdpef356, yes I have seen and watched all those posts, I have sent an email to petrolicious hoping to gain contact with the owner, just waiting on a reply.
    The Porsche club would seem to be the best source of information in the UK regarding Porsche, alas the model I am looking into was not here, however at some point someone may be able to offer some help, as you have done.
    many thanks, I will post the results here if anything of interest shows up.

    I went to the local Porsche dealer, it is as has been reported the Porsche certificate is no longer available, however they put me in touch with customer services who have opened a case file.
    It sounds like they will be able to help, and time will tell.

    The man running the Porsche Pictures Past website could be a good source for your research. He´s a mine of information and I remember a series of pictures of Porsche police cars (356s though) that he published. He might well know about the 911s also.
     
    Contact via website: https://porschepicturespast.com/
     
    Hope that helps,
     
    cheers,
