so is it a 308 or just the wrong decal ....if the former then does it's value reduce as it isn't authentic...and would having a 308 make any difference to the 3 speed manual gearbox the originals had?

not sure how accurate these figures are - from the automobile catalogue: for a HT 253 3 speed manaul - 0- 100 km/h 9.5 s 1/4 mile drag time (402 m) 17 s
and for a 308 4 speed (no data for a 3 speed manual) 0- 100 km/h 8.1 s 1/4 mile drag time (402 m) 16.1 s so those figures are pretty good and better than what I thought. from the same source my poor 81 WB 308 caprice can only muster 10.8 s 1/4 mile drag time (402 m) 17.5 s only a fraction better than the HZ and everyone says the blue 308 was much better than the red with emissions but the WB was "killed" with a 2.6:1 diff ratio....

You've got better eyes than me. The trim and everything else about the car looks accurate but the rubber door strips on the side don't. That is probably just an aftermarket thing though which isn't important. You'd think the 308 decal would warrant some explanation though and if the guard badges are 308 then a 'please explain' would be needed. There is probably a simple explanation though for what looks like a nice car though. I wouldn't be surprised if it is the real deal. A manual 308 would be rarer anyway i'd say! I think they were all 4 speeds though or autos (I could be wrong though)
Of course, someone could have taken the 6 out of the car and put in a 308. White cars with antique gold trim are pretty common. Add a set of hubcaps and hey presto, you have a 'white hot' Only a tags check or someone with a good knowledge would pick it.
OOps, i just had another look at the engine pic, the oil filler cap is on the side!, not at the front. My guess is a later model 308 has been dropped in! It may have started out as a white hot though? That may explain the more sensible price.
