    Blue Stradale at Auction

    Here:
    https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/a...bertone/852875

    British Leyland door mirrors
    Beta glove box lock, instead of the original boot lock
    The front panel looks jacked up/rotated at the front
    Dzus fasteners on the front panel have been messed about with
    Either it's the wrong wiper arm or missing the covering trim above the fastening nut

    Very nice otherwise. The re-trimmed seats, especially, and original carpet.

    Did some cars have mesh on top of the rear panel (under the rear louvres)?
    I've seen it on replicas.

    Chris, that's weird. Had a look on iPad at the pics and each one that you raised a point on could not be enlarged from the Thumbnail - just a black rectangle with a ?. Spooky!
    Then went on Smartphone and could see them all. I had obviously returned from the Twilight Zone.
    I have lots of hidden talents. The problem is, even I can't find them!

    The interior of that looks lovely.

    The auction is in March Chris.

    Graham Robson says they only actually made 190 Stratos, not 492.

    - but didnt somebody buy up the remaining chassis and manufacture some as continuity cars - getting closer to the magic 492? (I seem to remember reading somewhere)
