3008E is the designation for a Zephyr (Zodiac was 3012E) but I suspect they shared many parts?

it would have been produced before the "2000E" box (actually type 2821E I think but it gets its name from the cortina it was found in despite also being fitted to corsair, Capri, escort, etc).

...Ah, for some reason I always equated it to the Corsair 2000E & never thought of the Cortina...
