I recently found one of the knurled front trim pieces for my early 1600,after an 8 year search. Unfortunately FedEX destroyed it when I shipped it to SanDiego to be refinished,so, here I go again. I need one of the front hood trim pieces for an early 1600. It is the same as any later trim pieces only it is knurled. I have parts for trde or cash. Slightly damaged OK. Thanks, Dan

Hi Jim, Thank You for the nice comment. I'm just a retired Lugarwagen mechanic and enjoy restoring these cars.I've done Coupes,911's,and lots of 356"s but the E10 is by far my favorite. I just consider them my form of art.  dq

Currently have an '73 Atlantic Tii and a '72 Red Tii undergoing completes. Both w/ sunroofs. Enclosed pic of my '67 2000cs almost totally an original survivor 70k miles. I sold it to a guy in Wisconsin several years ago.Also a '70 1600 that was a very cool daily driver that I fixed up to take to Europe last year.That trip got delayed due to a health issue. Sold it to a friend in Vegas and it got totaled by a pickup 2 weeks later. It got hit so hard the rf shock tower snapped off the distributor. Passengers uninjured.   Take Care.   dq

Your 1600 is fantastic! Not that there's anything wrong with the others... I've never seen one in Schwartz.

+1

And with ti/tii 5" steel rims, the depth being emphasized by the dog-dish hubcaps! Really a great look. (Or are those 14" NK rims, possibly 5.5 x 14?)

Regards,

Steve

Steve, Black wasn't offered in '67, it was a last minute decision. They are Tii wheels that will be removed and going back to the original 41/2",now that I found  new set of 1600 beauty rims to go with the new dog dish hubcaps. I do have the original no headrest seats for it also,that are being redone.

So......what do you have?     dq

Thanks, Dan,

 

And that's the beauty of rims: it's an easily-reversible modification!

The esteemed Anders, who created The '66 Bible, might have evidence of Schwarz being offered from the inception of the 1600-2 in March 1966. His discussion of exterior colors and the factory-recommended interiors in the original post of the following thread certainly suggests he's looking at an early paint and upholstery brochure (my earliest paint and upholstery brochure is November 1968 and it shows Schwarz as of that date).

 

http://02forum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=8603

 

Anders has Schwarz on his list of original colors. I'm confident he'd be happy to point to his source for Schwarz as an original offering and/or adjust his list of colors as needed; he is truly dedicated to making The '66 Bible as accurate as possible.

 

Keep going with the restoration of your '67 -- I owned one back in the '70s -- and please post more photos!

 

Best regards,

 

Steve

Steve, Thanks so much for that link. What a great reference point. Now I don't feel so bad about changing from red to black. Will you be going to Monterey?  We have about 8 cars going, that I know of,from here in Denver.  dq
