That's probably more than VDO has in stock.

I could be convinced to let them go, I picked up a set of R-Calipers that won't fit under them

Blue dash is rare. I have 2 that are tan in color, I think 81-84, look just like yours. No cracks!

^1981-early 1987... Two-tone didn't come out until mid-1987.

Anyway, nice score...

I have a 83 242 turbo, inter-cooled Canadian car with a blue dash, fact is the whole interior is blue, seats, door panels, and hat shelf. The dash was of course cracked, but I did manage to find a blue dash cover for it. mmmm never remembered looking up to see if the roof liner is blue too!
Blue is not my favorite colour, one day I may change it!

Headliner should be black... I'd either go black leather (that is, if you tint the glass) or go tan. It actually goes pretty well with the blue metallic paint.

That is a rare item. I bet the right buyer (who might be a little while coming, but still...) would pay good money for those!

cheers

Nice find, then!

Back on topic, I'm currently clearing out my garage ahead of a house move, and dug out some semi-rare gauges the other day. Nothing wildly exciting, but:
Early 760 (three-segment) boost gauge
700 oil pressure gauge
240 R-Sport boost gauge
(plus a few more common ones)

cheers

James
