    There was a 4 wheel Berkley (c1960's) on there at the time that went for 21000+ euros.

    I actually think Phil is double bluffing us so the price stays down.

    I'm sure he needs a pile of bits like that for his own Zagato rebuild?

    They seriously expect someone to buy that for restoration??? My Gran had lace antimacassars on her settee that had fewer holes than that bodyshell! Is there actually a single half-decent panel on it that you could use as part of a rebuild? And what would it cost to "restore" anyway? Far in excess of its value once completed - you might as well go and buy a good 'un to start with. No, it's just a pile of parts that could be used to keep other Zagatos on the road.
    I think it's incredibly sad to see lovely motors left to rot away like that. Whoever owns it, or had charge of it, should be kicked up the arse non-stop for a week. At least.

    ...although, I did think, at first, that Phil was selling his...

    Nice paraphrasing by Chris J though. And very true!

    Nice vid but not correct in a few placed. Who but an idiot (sorry Harry) would drive a Fulvia without a carb drip tray and petrol pouring out of the base of the carbs.... The alternator is so close (thats why a drip tray came with the car new)....
