2-tone painting information for the Type 3
The Type 3 was available with an optional 2-tone paint job from 63-66, the price was 85 German Marks.  I have seen it stated that the N models have a straight line between the body and the roof and the S models have a cleaner curved line of paint.  If anyone has photos of an N model, I would love to add them to this page.
