I have a question on the later vinyl owners manual covers. For the late 58-59 As and maybe the early 60 Bs the red cover was used. I have a similar cover with the stylized Porsche imprint but it is a darker red color. The darker on came in a lot of T-6 B literature, was that original to a B ? See the photos, I know the red one came with my late 59, wonder more about the darker one. Also could a mid production 59 D have the paper cover with the manual and "D" supplement.

Hi,
There was many versions of the manual cover and I'd like to know which one was period correct for a late 57 (Nov) car?
Cardboard (with Porsche script), Cardboard (with Porsche crest), Vinyl (with Porsche Script) ?
Thanks.
