    It really depends on what color and other options, Seeing as how they stopped taking orders for the '66s...

    Welcome. Looks like you are doing it right. There are several of us here with '66 300s. How are your turn lens and tail/brake lights? Hopefully they are in good shape.

    Here is mine.

    What is wrong with your tail light assemblies? They are made of pot metal, and they are usually badly pitted. If they aren't broken or crushed, they can be repaired and rechromed. Its a rather expensive procedure. Check with Zymurgy (Mike). His repaired / rechromed tail light assemblies are gorgeous.

    They are also as hard to find as a beautiful 20 year old blonde virgin. And probably just as expensive.

    Welcome. I spent a few weeks in Hann Munden Hannoversch Munden in 2003, I believe that's reasonably close to Kassel? Very much enjoyed it... the geography reminded me of Tennessee.

    Hey Martin! I just noticed your wheel covers. It looks like your car has disk brakes. What other options does your car have ?

    The front turn lens are made to order, by a man in Australia. If you need those I can look of the information. The rear lens are next to impossible to find, like everyone mentioned.
