    That R8 is very early build with the trim above the rear window and the notched front boot floor apparently like a Dauphine.My Dad bought this car years ago from Ian Garratt, then Peter Fowler bought it from him with the intention of restoring it.

    Some of the trim strips look OK. It just might have the very nice early stainless steel door handles too.

    Looks to me as if the wheels we can see are R10 - be worth buying for the wheels if they are 10S......

    It has a late R10 gear lever I think, so the power unit might be upgraded.

    Rare cars, non-Gordini R8s. I hope someone picks it up.
