    Does anyone know what the correct wallet is for this car. I believe it to be the cloth embossed type with the prancing hore logo and not a leather one.

    Does anyone have one for sale?

    does a 1977 use the same pouch as the 76 cars, or is it the plain leather one?

    Could I ask clarification on that - I thought the fabric pouch went into the early eighties ?

    I have been offered several wallets of the leather varietyfor $300 but can't find one of the fabric type ( I'm not paying $1,000!) Did Ferrari interchange the wallets ? The fabric type shown above maybe for just European markets?

    My 84 QV has the fabric pouch. I'm assuming its original... not sure but was told it was....

    My '76 GTB steel car came with a leather wallet. It is undoubtedly the original one because I bought the car from the fanatical original owner. There was nothing the original owner did not know about this car and what came with it.

    My 1977 has a brown leather document pouch with Cavallino stamped on the front in silver. It's original as the car has been in the family since new.

    Could some of you possibly post pictures of your wallets for 75 to 80 era 308's? How do they compare to the new plain leather ones being sold on eBay?

    Also, does anyone have a pic of the 1977 owners manual? I have two of the red with black horse ones which appear to be for 1976 cars?

    1976 and 77 cars had leather pouches, 1978 was the first year for the cloth.

    My 76 glass is identical to this, the extra i have that they do not include is the warranty for the radio card, and the radio Blaukpunt manuel that i have. Everything else is bang on the same.

    Sure looks like the earlier GTB's came with the leather type as per Dino and Boxer. Sounds logical that they changed to the fabric type around 78. So I guess I sound be looking for a leather type.

    Would an early 1977 steel car have had the same books and manuals. As sad as it is that everyone keeps the tools and books when they sell these cars, its even sadder to see the amount of money this stuff is worth. But when you consider that offering it with the car doesnt make the car any more valuable, it is kind of stupid to just give it away.

    Some Boxer's came with the same as the 308's material ones.
