1958 356A correct speaker grills and speakers

#1 Post by David Austin » Fri Aug 24, 2018 7:07 am

Dr. B Johnsons Restorer's Guide to Authenticity shows a grill that has straight sides and curved top and bottom as per attachment.
I can find oval and round grills claiming to be original 356A grills.
As the speakers were probably dealer fitted am I right in saying they came in different shapes?
Any advice on making sure I get the correct ones?
If anyone has grills and speakers for sale please contact me.
