    You just don't see a car more properly represented than this one...

    Question... was the dash wood supposed to be glossy?

    ....and who can pick out the oddity in picture 132 ? :)

    Too bad they removed the Talbot mirror off the fender, but at least they put a Swan Neck on the door.

    Don’t all 2000 VIN plates say 2000C?

    How could it be original paint as well? Did these coupes have velour carpets?

    Oops, wrong pic. I see cracking paint in the fender gutter. Should the sound pads have the hexagon pattern?

    Where you see that?

    Serial # plate on my '67 CS only shows 2000C. Pics of other cars confirm, as well.

    The carpet was supposed to be something pretty plush, from all the sales literature I have.

    I meant picture 132 (look at the snorkel on the radiator shroud) but in 138 is the missing fuse, and the wrong cap on the clutch reservoir.

    The clutch cap looked correct to me unless early cars were metal? Tar pads are around strut bearing. Is that just a cap on the snorkel?

    I believe the clutch reservoir cap should be black, like the brake reservoir (almost the same cap, but brake cap should have the float sensor...this one does not)

    The tar pads on my car were like this car; smooth, without any pattern.

    Another oddity... there's an extra hose clamp n the upper radiator hose, right in the middle, doing nothing :)

    At this point, these are pretty minor details... though finding the airbox snorkel and an ash tray may cost a few hundred bucks.

    A fine example, indeed. I am glad to see all the detailed pictures. It helps my reassembly, as my car was restored in the '80s and they missed a couple of things... see the tape applied on the underside of the hood down the middle? That holds the wires running from the switch to the light at the top. ...though I'm not convinced that's how the factory did it... hmmmm

    and where do I find the wheel well covers for the trunk??? This car's are perfect!

    Hi Ed,

    You can buy the well covers new but the grain doesn't match. I have a spare set in very good shape - taking up space on the hood of my project car. Let me check my existing ones to see if the spares are necessary. They are kind of a PITA to remove and I'm a bit scared to crack them on the way out. At the same time - space is king! :D

    Just walked through the photos - beautiful car! Here's a couple of comments and questions I have:
    - LOVE the transparent CV boots on the half shafts. What a great way to see the lubricant in there. I have no idea if that is original, but I love it!
    - Love the SS Abarth tag on the muffler - would like to hang that on the wall as art.
    - I didn't read the full description :oops:, but why does it look green on in various places including the bottom? It looks like the car is made of copper and it has a patina (which would be awesome!).

    I hope this car finds a great new home. :)

    Transparent CV boots are factory original for the NK cars and early 1600s. W&N actually sells nice replacements (something I need to add to my list). The outer CV uses needle bearing and they are NLA, many folks replace them with a CV from a 2002. Note there is only a u-joint at the diff, not another CV.

    Green primer underneath... it is odd, but I have seen green primer under some old BMWs and it is usually applied haphazardly like this example. Not sure why. After a thorough cleaning under my car, it was all grey primer, no green.

    The NK covers are not the same, see the shock tower for comparison. Series 1 NK cars use the long neck diff, Series 2 sedans use the sideloader diff and subframe.

    Here’s some pictures of my trunk. I don’t know how the e9 would be different?

    Ed, Check out the shock turret on the BaT coupe.

    Sorry if I'm missing it, Chris. Are you saying the plastic wheel well covers are different between an e9 and a 2000CS ? I'm looking at Google pics of e9 trunks and everything looks the same...

    B2374689-5B88-4DBA-9E89-55AA5B1FF5F6.jpeg Yours looks like mine, but the e9 definitely has a taller profile around the shock mount. The BaT coupe is much lower in that area. And my NK sedan cover is also different from e9 even with the subframe and sideloader diff like an e9.

    Your VIN must be after 1107365 when the 2000CS got the sideloader diff along with the series 2 NK sedans.

    oooooohhhh.. now I see the difference. :)

    Well, rats... what am I supposed to do now for wheel well covers?? (No... I’m not buying this car on BAT)

    I suppose I could use the e9 pieces, they’ll look kinda wonky... hmmmmm.

    Oh, the VIN for my ‘67 is 1107357 :)

    I think the covers are different but the shock towers are identical.

    Look at the distance between the plastic and the parcel tray.

    From my CSI, same as Chris’s
