Reutter Certificate

#1 Post by Rick Woltz » Thu Jun 20, 2019 11:48 pm

I recently received my Karosserie Reutter Certificate of Production for my 55 Speedster.In it it has a build sheet. It has a transparent sheet over the left side explaining what equipment they are describing but no explanations for the descriptions. I went to a German to English translation book and it helped me identify almost every word. Example hellgrau = light gray. What I didn't understand was the description for the wheels. "Rader" = wheels and the description was "Chromeffektlack". In looking this up it seemed to mean chrome effect. So question is, does this mean chrome wheels? Trim rings? Silver Painted?

Chrome effect lacquer = painted silver wheels

Hi, How do I go about obtaining the Karosserie Reutter Certificate of Production. I am starting a rotisserie restoration of my 64 356C. Apparently it has a rare factory electric sunroof and I am trying to get the facts for it.

Thank you
Jim
