I wonder where this one will end up ...both location and price?

I have this car recorded in my Register from 1977.  My notes say:
1977: Original colour red with black leather interior, 50,000 miles, floor-change, Nardi carbs.  Had crash to RH side front & a wing bought from B20-3902 to repair
1976-1977: Grant White, San Jose, California, USA [PM letter]
1970-1976: Chris Christopherson, San Francisco, USA  [PM letter]
The registration was USA: CTJ-348 (California)
The engine was: B20.4802 with B24 cylinder heads

It would seem the car has been left for a very long time.  I met Grant White at least once in the UK in the 1970s and he was a really nice guy.  He had bought another B20 in Bristol and I think also had a Bugatti.  I understand from the American Club that he may have died, but I never fully confirmed this.
Chris Christopherson - yes I think it is him!

Look at his other cars, bits and pieces and prices! I wish I could find my old Flavia and Fulvia jacks - they seem to be worth a fortune if you say they are for a Ferrari!

Off subject , but I was trying to sell a windscreen wiper motor to someone in California with a B24 Spyder and he said he didn't need it because he'd had the car 16 years and had never used the wipers ...... Coals to Newcastle !
