But my carpet was originally wool, due to a carpet strike in Germany in 1970 (not cognac velour as noted). And my hornpad is black, not brown.


Aaaaaah Gerrett,
We never got a copy of your datacard and Production-order.
If you have it not digital then you could fax it to me 0031-475-572465. I could digitalise it then for Giovanni
Giovanni and I would apriciate that very much.

Now you can see how much info we can get together from these data.

I have no picture of your steeringpad, but the sheets says it should be brown ..... Is your pad original or is there new leather used or is it recoloured ??? who knows ... It could be in the sheets are made typo's ....
5.5 Gigabytes on pictures and no picture of Gerrett's steeringpad. That is a shame

How are your foodrests ?? were they in velours or in wool ????

special code 798:



This code 798 appears on later datacards, when the owner choosed for an uncoded combination of wood for the particular colour.
For example Code 766 in combination with burled Wallnut

at last there was a code 3XX for fabric check / Diamond:

We have no sheets from this interiorcodes, but I know that the only SWB-Landaulet from Graf von Berckheim had that cloth also (in brown).

Now I found a other SWB with the same stuff. ( I hope the picture is clear enough to recognize)

Hi Paul,
many thanks for this great topic. But I saw a little mistake. I think the pic for Code 741 shows my own car and there the leatherparts are darkblue. Originally they were lightgrey til the preowner painted them darkblue. So the velour and the leatherparts shouldn´t be similary like Code 742.

Hi Wilfried,

Thanks for that hint.
I had not seen that it was not 100% original.
Obviously I have to study more on this item

I will remove that picture, because it shows not that interior as should show.

But I only can add to this if I (or Giovanni) get more datacards and then I have to study better, if those cars ar still original. So I should be more careful.

Thank you for the correction.

Oh wait... This is the elusive Coco Chanel leather map pocket 'option'. Which I definitely have.




For those who still don't know what "Pompadour-Taschen" are, here a picture:

Hmmm,

sharp eyes Gerrett,

when you train a little more you can identify soon some more (and new) cars .


Do you have also that specific Austattungscode 298 ???
or do you have the regular colourcode with the normaly fitted kind of wood .... I have no clou, because the colourcode (believe 387 ??) and the interiorcode from you car are still missing in my database.

We still don't know when the factory started to use the codes 298 and 798 for "specific mixed non regular available" interiors ...
I still miss a copy of your datacard ... ((although I even could mention your keycode and retaildatum)) ..
So we can't make your car complete (yet) ..

At this moment we have collected about 130 datacards , so still missing more then 2500 ..
@ ANYONE : The more datacards we recieve, the better conclusions we can make.

At this moment we have collected almost 200 datacards ......
Still are (many) more wanted ......

The more we collect the more we can tell about codes and interiors.
So , please send in datacards for our registery and database ....

On the other hand I discovered the first SWB with leather in the front and with velours in the rear, without that that particular car has an divider.
That seems pretty UNIQUE !!!.
We are investigating the Vin , but haven't found that yet .....

See the picture ....

(RUUD this is also very interesting for you : See the name of the pic !!!)
