Probably more likely to be a standard windsor with Cobra rocker covers, than one with the correct heads etc.

I'd be very careful buying any special US car especially outside the US where specialists who know what to look for are a lot thinner on the ground, and aren't always as knowledgeable as they may suggest.

Like most things do your research and buy wisely rather than on the spur of the moment.

Before you fall in love with the first thing you see.... a couple of choice vehicles that I spotted at Arnage last summer - vive le difference, as they say!

I agree with Andrewl.

I have spent a lot of time in the US and am fairly well read up about cars and I could not even begin to take you through the myriad of spec's and model changes for the '67-'69 Dodge Charger ( a well known car, of which lots were made and share the same body, the same 'B' body of the Coronet) let alone all of the millions (literally) permutations of Mustangs.

The US car industry is much more short term and fashion driven than the rest of the world.

The boot is often on the other foot, I have seen many a 12 valve BMW 528i sold as a M5 in the US, and any Turbo Volvo wagon passed off as a T-5 R.

Most US car clubs are 'Real Friendly' and will help you through the pitfalls and tell tale signs of any model car you choose (did you know that there is a Plymouth Super Bee club. Not bad for a car that was in production for 9 months! :shock: )

@ MrKawasaki.

Is that an Ogle under the MGC Lemans rep?

EDIT: " of course it is, I have just read the caption on the picture frame :roll: "

Yes an MGA - poorly labelled images on my part.

Another excuse to show my personal 'weapon' of choice - Norman does Mulsanne!

Neil

PS. Consider this thread hi-jacked!
