As I recall from decades back, the ones on the right are the ones I have.

To really change the subject, which will cause me to start a new thread, does anyone know hat NOS T6B/C deco looks like? I have seen two variations of that, including the rubber variations. Again, let's start another thread before answering that question.

[quote="Sebastian Gaeta"]Yesterday I went to visit a friend to work on a project and took these photos while I was there. This gentleman was a Porsche dealer during the 356 era and has much in the way of NOS parts etc.

Here is an NOS Blaupunkt installation kit that Porsche dealers used. This particular one was a leftover kit from the B/C era and the speaker grills are of the "sorta round" style.




This is interesting. I bought the same kit in 1967 which included a radio. Everything shown here by Sebastian was there except for the wiring with plugs and the speaker cloth. The speaker bezels were there with the wire mesh and wrapped just like the photo. I am now wondering if the parts were not taken and used elsewhere out of need.

Interesting, I just got a set of original speakers from a 356C and the cloth was the same one that Bob Lee stated was factory installed.
The speakers I got came from a survivor.
Maybe they did use different cloths from time to time.
Sorry to open up such a old thread again.
New to me :D
