    last version, with a preowned raid steering wheel and specific hub also preowned, circa 1975
    find the raid perfect combination for a scheel driving experience, but probably not a perfect match for the coupe (that looks better in a Petri style)

    Beatiful steering Wheel (and interior) DeQ. Keep me in mind of you decide that you don't like it anymore (that's a joke!)! What size is it? 36 or 38?
    With your crafmanship, no wonder everything is so neat and tidy!

    Hard to compete with OCCoupe and DeQ but here goes...
    I re-veneered the dash wood with Carpathian Elm burl as an homage to Paul Can's coupe and refinished the steering wheel with input from many on this board.

    Unusual colour combination - marine blue velour on inka orange.

    Also note the RHD wooden front rail on the dash.

    Benji, she's a beauty! Is your coupe registered as a 69? The US 2800CS coupes began as 1970 model year vehicles, just wondering.

    My VIN is 2270003 which I believe makes it one of the first US spec cars. I have the original paperwork from when the car was imported. I believe it was through a dealer in Vienna but I may be mistaken. Unfortunately beneath the beauty lay the Beast.

    Car had stage 4 cancer but the folks at Priola have done a great job and Don will soon have her back together.

    The first 2800CS coupes in the US/NA market were built in September. Another example of the non-consecutive build sequence and VIN allocation as yours is number three but built two months later. All of these coupes have an EPA/DOT sticker confirming them as 1970 models here. In Europe the 2800CS debuted around May if I remember correctly so they are 1969s. Can't wait to see yours when it's done.

    My dash can compete in the "tramp" class :) I just got the pistons for the M90 engine so when I perform the transplant I will address the dash and put some lipstick on my little pig. I'm thinking about turning my (soon to be) old engine into a 650 lb coffee table, it will be fully dressed with carbs and all, I have enough parts to make it completely stock, Zeniths, hoses, fuel pump etc. I could give it to my wife as a divorce present!

    Over the past 20 years I have morph'd my coupe's interior considerably from the stock (Euro delivery) monochromatic dark blue vinyl/velour combo. I transformed the interior into a three-tone one (lighter blue, tan, and "ostrich hide" (vinyl)). Other "dash area" additions/changes include:

    - Courtesy lights (red/white) on door cards
    - MotoLita wood steering wheel and hub
    - Nardi shifter knob
    - Custom hand brake handle (with gator made by my wife)
    - Console/arm rest, via a mid-90's Mazda 626
    - VDO gauge set in dash
    - Blaupunkt AM/FM/CD head unit
    - Fold-down cup holders (!) on door pockets
    - A/C controls ahead of shifter platform
    - Driving/fog light switches ahead of rear window switches
