eBay 308 - Are the colors really factory?

Check this out. The auction says the original importer special ordered the car with all red trim (including the top), and an all tan interior (including the dash). I have never seen either of those except when an owner had them redone that way. Could the 308's really be ordered that way?

Here's the auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...%3ASS%3AUS%3A1

Thanks!

Mike

Hi Mike,

Because the car was from a collector it is very possible the factory made a special paint job just for this customer. I am in the SF area if you would like me to take a look at this car for you.

I appreciate the offer, but I'm not ready to buy just yet. I'm still in the learning, and planning stage.

Thanks for the info!

MikeK, You can email the factory with the SN number and they will advise you what the original interior and exterior colors were.

I just got off the phone with a friend yesterday after seeing this topic. The owner was at Infineon last weekend and I can confirm that the paint is real. That is a very cool and unique 308. The only thing I don't like are the red grills on the tiny windows behind the driver/passenger windows.

I agree. I like the red top, as other have done on their own, but I'm not partial to the red vents.

Good info.

Mike
