Odd steering wheel.  Modern Nardi?

Is the heater not connected?

Sitting a bit high at the back?

I wonder David what else you'd spot if you saw it in the flesh!

Some other quick findings:
Radiator top not correct
Radiator cap not correct for a series 4
Radiator blinds not connected
Why is the interior of the bonnet body color, and not black?
Multicolored electrical wiring, instead of black
....
... and finally, oh horror!, the button on the brake fluid reservoir is down!  Grin

This car was featured and discussed on BringaTrailer.com back in January.  Some of you might enjoy the comments thread; if you're not familiar with BaT it will at least give you a flavour of this slightly addictive website.

I particularly enjoyed this quote It can sound like damning with faint praise or an exercise in pointlessness when you say that an old car drives in a modern way (then buy a newer car!), but a B20 has modernity where it matters and oldness where it matters more.

Though strictly speaking very few of the cars on the BaT site are restoration jobs, its sort of been highjacked over a period. As Will says interesting comments plus you can filter the cars by country of origin if only interested in Italian cars, or a straight Lanica/Aurelia search
