Anybody got one? The car I bought has a couple rust holes in the back of the muffler. It just passed TX inspection like this but I'd like a perfect one, if such a thing exists.

You may have already checked with these guys first, but here it is anyway. I didn't find exactly what you're looking for, but maybe give them a call to see what they can do. There was an OB 928 in a salvage yard in south Mobile County Alabama a few months back...

Thanks Joe. Mine's from the first model year though. The '78 and '88 are very different, to the best of my knowledge. Plus I do want to retain originality - weird, I know.... It even has the original working radio and the roadside gloves are still heat-sealed in their bag, never opened in over 37 years....

Fully understand! I just saw it and thought it might work for you. I get originality! I trying to do that too.

Hey, when you get a chance, could you post a picture of the co sole, including the radio? My is completely disassembled and I'd like to get a model to follow!

Thanks!

Getting a bit off topic but hey, It's a forum amongst friends... :)
Let's see if this works - higher def pics of what I posted already linked from my photobucket account. I don't have the car yet as the new clutch and a few other items still need to be taken care of. Will post better pics after I get the car safely ensconced in my own home... Click on the pics, will take you to photobucket. there just mouse over the pic to see the + sign and click on it to enlarge.

Definitely off topic, but much needed! Thanks!

Good luck on the muffler each!
Have you tried this place?

Not about originality in this case. The difference between 16V and 32V is light years apart. They are not even CLOSE to interchangeable.
