I've seen it for sale before, about a year ago IIRC. The photo's suggest it's in good condition but I'd questions the "original".

Some of the details are incorrect;
windscreen and rear window trim should be plain black rubber not chrome strip
seats are incorrect
steering wheel incorrect, infact the whole interior re-trim is more "in-the-style-of" rather an accurate recreation.

But the biggest thing for me is it's not a fanalone engine. It's an S2 engine, which probably means it's got an S2 'box, and which is why it's got the incorrect tachometer. That would have me wanting to check chassis numbers and a few other things. Doesn't matter from a performance point of view, but if he's asking 100% Fanalone money one should at least expect a 100% Fanalone!

Not that they are unique to fanalone, but the rear reflectors are the wrong way round in my view. That always irritates me!

How can you tell if its a S2??

The alternator mounting is different. A Fanalone has two cast lugs in the block (same as the dynamo'd cars). S2's with the electric fan only have one lug (moved forward) and a plate hanging of the water pump. This has the plate. It also has an electronic rev-counter. Fanalones have a mechanical one (and the are ~1,000+ if you can find them) which, as with the other S1 cars is driven off the back of the distributor drive via a spur gear. Again this car doesn't have that. So I reckon it's an S2 engine. depending on the date of the car it should have a piggyback gearbox, The last 200 odd had the S2 'box fitted. The chassis number will tell if the correct gearbox is fitted.

Looks a nicely done car though.

Overspray on the engine is always a sign of being a bit slap-dash I think. No need for that.

And you would need to go down to the gym before trying to park it with that small (modern) steering wheel.....

I can confirm that parking a Fanalone with a small steering wheel removes the need for gym membership.  Mine looks good though!

The one in Australia?  That belongs to the father of a very good friend of mine.  If anyone wants more info or photos I have several I can share.

Yes, Bill May and I went to see it a few years ago and we were both rather disappointed, to say the least. I mentioned it somewhere on this forum, probably under "Augustas". Germay might well be the best place for it!

Here's an interesting one, paperwork suggests it has been converted from RHD. Never heard of that before  Huh?
