    Possibly the ex David May Corse I.
    It changed hands a year or two back.

    Re: For Sale - Italy

    David May's car was white/green with Stradale arches, then red with round arches and gold coffin spokes, but little offset on the rear.
    Then, late Alitalia colour scheme with the same round arches and a bit more offset on the (now yellow) coffin spokes.
    David May's car also had non X1/9 'pull up' door handles, which can be seen on all of the above.

    This car for sale on subito, has a different number plate to the ex David May car.
    The steering wheel is distinctive and the triple screen/dash vents too. Does anyone know if David May's car had these features?

    David's car had quite a few unique features, but can't recall the dash vents. That territory is definitely yours Chris!

    I don't know about the dash vents and the steering wheel John, but the door handles, the rear arches and the different number plate make me think that this is not the same car.
    If you search for the David May car's number plate, there's a photo of an Alitalia car with round arches comes up, which does have the unique outer door handles.

    You can see the non cut down targa catches on the Alitalia one for sale.

    Don't know about the cars, but I saw the thread titile and thought the ad was for the whole country... shipping might be a tad expensive though, and of course, where would you put it??

    About 88,500 in real money.
    Just shows, the only safe havens in a global crisis are gold, the dollar or a Stratos replica in an Alitalia colour scheme.






    maybe

    Yes it is.
    One of Lionels last stands.
    It was actually the first chassis built in Frome.
    I actually made that left hand dash mouldings.
    You can just see the chunky adjustable tca's on the front too.
    Only car that ever had them I think
    Someone has messed with the front top coil over mounts, and judging from the condition of the AVO's and other components on show it's clearly not done a lot of kilometres.
    If I'm not mistaken this is also the car which "dissappeared" for a time when being taken through IVA somewhere in the UK.
