Maybe even putting down what it is listed as?

Any kind of clue would do :)

That has to be it. No oil painting is it? There's something very wrong with the styling, especially over the rear wheel arches and that bulge in the body that should be there as a haunch over the rear wheels is too far back.

Bloody hideous kit car from the 80s. Looks Like what it is - a right dog's breakfast. I had a bit of a kit car phase in the 80s and I remember that thing from the time. Complete travesty to do that to an Alfa. The Minari was a bit better (http://www.minari-register.org.uk/).

Cheers,

Nigel

Been down the pub Guinness don't make it look any better. You're not encouraged to bid then.:p

I think the Minari is a cracking little thing. Will consider one when I can't get into (or more accurately out of) the Strato's any more.

I like quite a few kit cars, but that one doesn't look very good.

Is it me or are the rear wheels too far back in relation to the arches?

The S&J "Milano" was a kit car based on the Alfetta GTV, produced in the late 80s/early 90s. It had a GRP body and tubular steel chassis, although it utilised the donor cars' bulkhead and screen surround. Most were based on 2.0 cars, and had different nose with pop-up lights; the one in the ad being based on the GTV6 and with the original style front is rare. But rarity does not guarantee value... Shame it didn't look a bit better, as at the time there was no shortage of rotten GTVs with good mechanicals.
