Have a blaupunkt radio and a face plate that I was told was VW but I can't find it anywhere. Anyone recognize them?

Radio is not Type 3-specific, especially with black buttons instead of white, but the face plate looks Type 3 to me.

The black buttons are correct for a Y-series Blaupunkt, produced in 1967-68 for installation in a 1968 model year Type 3.

Was black the only choice for the Y-series?
