    I remember Jerry saying it had a cream/white dash panel..... Alan's was the only one that I knew had this...

    Hi John, just an update on developments. We have managed to arrange for someone to collect the Fiat Stilo this Saturday. If you know of someone who can view/assess/value the Stratos at the same time, I can arrange this. P

    Car and Classic is a very good place to advertise a Stratos replica. It's free and gets lots of views:

    'Bit of fight for this very similar car recently:

    Many thanks for your reply John. I believe next Saturday is an option. We have requested more information from Dad's partner but is slow coming. P

    My first car was definitely Alan Cox's first car, and I bought it from Driffield. Here is a picture of it converted to GPs 4 Martini together with Dave Watson's car. We are even in the background.Click image for larger version.

    Omg! Thanks so much for your post & photo Jerry. That looks absolutely awesome. I vividly recall how happy Dad was when he built this car. We gals were very proud of him. I am going to call my sisters right away. Thanks for taking the time to resolve the question. P

    Re: Stratos Transformer seeking new home

    Really sorry to hear about your dad Paula, but you can be justifiably proud of him because he built the car really well, and this was in the days before a knowledgeable forum like this was about to help people. Here is a later photo of the car in a different colour scheme, ( the black and white one) same venue but different villains in the background.

    Best wishes

    Jerry

    Re: Stratos Transformer seeking new home

    Thank you so much Jerry, for your kind words, they mean alot to us. We haven't had the opportunity to speak to many people who met Dad as we were not together as a family for many years. Working with Lancias was Dad's true vocation. Many passed through our driveways over the years & we all have fond memories of our times as grease monkeys. I sincerely hope the person who buys his latest Stratos will love it as much as he did. I can't believe that's the original red car!! They're so versatile & all look stunning. It's reassuring to see them evolve & have an healthy lifespan. If you happen to have any photos of Dad mingling around with the usual suspects in the background, we'd love to see him in action. Thanks again, your time is much appreciated. Regards, P
