Around the end of 1962 top sender fuel tanks went from black to gray. Information supplied around 15 years ago was as follows:

Reutter coupe: Black 112147, October 62 Gray 112582, November 62
Karmann coupe: Black 212218, November 62 Gray 212648, January 63
Reutter cabriolet: Gray 158099, March 1963

Any new info out there?

I'm pretty sure all bottom sender tanks were black. Is that right? I would like to know if the rear grilles on 119779 were anodized.

Sorry I can't answer the question about the rear grilles - I don't know if they were original...
