    Well, it seems my previous thread was removed as it was deemed that I was looking for a buyer for this car and therefore should have been in the classifieds section.

    Just to clarify, please do not contact me if you may be interested in this car. The sale of the car is being dealt with by others and not myself.

    However, some may be interested in the restoration work carried out. So, I will be adding links with photos of this restoration for those interested.

    It was fitted to the car with amp. Not sure if it is factory correct or not but all booklets are present with handbooks.

    If my memory is right, the Blaupunkt "Car 300" existed with different faces, but it is period correct for mid-nineties' cars; common on Opels, notably...

    After receiving paperwork from Tony Willis (Maranello concessionaires archive) It has transpired that my 308 GTS Chassis #31009 was ordered with wider wheels? And was shown at the 1980 London motor show with P7 wheels? What do these P7 wheels look like?

    And, how would I know if the wheels currently fitted are the original wider wheels or standard width wheels?


    Thanks

    Standard = 6 1/2 x 14 - wider = 7 1/2 x 14 - P7 = 16 in

    So check your tyres initially for 14 vs 16 - it is extremely unlikely your car has standard width wheels - checking the six digit part no on the back to the parts book should confirm although the advert already appears convinced 7 1/2 fitted

    PS you might wish to edit the addresses out of post 12
