Many of you think that NOS is an acronym for New Old Stock. Perhaps it does, but sometimes for me is means Unable To Resist! I already had a very nice Factory Issue 356 B Spare Parts Catalog, then I saw this one that is pure NOS. Sometimes NOS does not mean it is in good condition, but in this case, it is really really great condition. Part of what happens to these B catalogs is the maroon paper on at the binding end fads, tears or in other ways becomes cosmetically poor. I think this book was kept in a box, away from damaging light. Even the front cover is much brighter than others I have seen.
Pictures below and I have now added it to my Documents Section
Want to know how much a 356 part cost "back in the day". Porsche published books that had the spare parts prices and these books were at each dealership. Prices show ALL parts that were available and the price for the customer and the dealer price. The two books shown below are now added to my collection. All pages intact!
I have no history on this umbrella, but it just struck me as a fun item to take along in the car. It has lots of wear on the wood handle and some signs of being tossed about like we all do when getting into a car. Anyway, no claims this came from the factory, but it certainly could have. There is a very small tag on the inside that reads "Hugendubel Co mbH Stuttgart". If anyone reading this knows more about Hugendubel or PORSCHE umbrellas, please contact me.
