#1 Post by Edwin Tiben » Wed Jan 02, 2019 5:52 am

Hello,

Newbie here ;)

I'm looking for photos of the interior trim from a 1956 356a T1 1600 Super with the colors on the Reutters sheet.

The outside is the beautiful Aquamarine Metallic, but very interested how it looks with the grey interior in the car !

if you have pictures of single items, but not the combination thats fine too ;)

Sitze : Grau Gekalit Kunstleder Kaliko
Sitz-Kombination : Grau Cordsamt Ottlieb
Tur-Tafel und Fond : Grau Gekalit Kunstleder Kaliko
Notsitz und Lehne : Grau Gekalit Kunstleder Kaliko
Teppich : Blau Bouclé Geller


Looking forward to see images !

Cheers, Edwin

Do note that the grey corduroy in Joris' photo has yellowed over time. Originalyl it was a much more neutral color, though still "warm". My car has this same corduroy.

Photos of original corduroy from my '53 coupe below. It has been dyed black (poorly), but the photos show protected areas and areas that have yellowed over time.
