Norm, thanks, we'll change the tooling of the tabs to reflect that. But the part won't have any funny wallpaper/stickem paper; that's up to the customer to decide which weird thing to put on.

Brad,

Maybe you can get some German shelf paper.
That would drive the purists nuts 15 or 20 years from now.

Christian, I assume that the build date was around Christmas? :D

I found the build date and despite what we all think, it was not near Christmas!
For the record, 10/23/1958. I think Pumpkins would have been more appropriate.

Another sample.
This is from Miss April. Just removed it today. Not the most exciting one, but original none the less.

John Hearn just pointed out to me that the liner on my ash tray is the same as Sebastians at the start of this thread.
Sebastian, my coupe is # 222019. Is your car close????

Could be on to something Paul. Can we guess that they bought random rolls of contact paper, used them up and went on to another roll? And of course that roll of contact paper could/would have a different pattern since it was simply purchased as needed?

Paul, Sebastian
Your cars are 34 numbers apart.... If you look at my post on the first page of this subject you will see my theory of these "papers".
I was in Stuttgart three years ago and was determined to find if they bought the wallpaper from the nearby wallpapershop. I went to the shop to find it boarded up and out of business.......
We need a "detective" in Stuttgart to investigate more, are you reading this Christoph???

Hi John, my apologies for not remembering your post! In my defense it has been five years since you relayed that story to us :-)

I am all for a database to collect different images of the wallpaper/contact paper that they used. Perhaps this thread could serve that purpose for now?

Speaking of ashtrays, mine has rust/corrosion inside the tray and on the bottom. Is there a way to rid this stuff and can the tray be disassembled to get at it?


I think the ashtray is the same as the MB 190SL, and still available from MB, though the mount is a little different.

Personally, I think Porsche directed their employees to bring in a wallpaper sample from their mom's kitchen....

Great idea to have a database.
Please include chassis number and date of manufacture (if known!) and we can see if we can peice together (no pun intended!) a picture of how many cars had the same type of paper.
With a large enough database we could the determine if it was a roll of paper or a sample book that was used.
