Ghia-Aigle 195 with serial number 0195EL. Often mistaken as a 212 Inter. Port holes drill in car are not original. Body looks slightly different than original.

with the portholes it looks very "Vignale" and different to 0137EL.

I posted a reply in "Telaio", but realize that many of you are blocked. When my dear friend Mark Dees had it, we measured the body as it seemed a bit off. As I recall there was about a 2 inch difference, left to right. Truly hand-built, and someone at Ghia-Aigle lost the tape measure. Thankfully, Mark never started the resto, as he want to "correct" the discrepancy, and he was not known for finishing what he started.
My guess is that it's prettier now than when it left Switzerland. Thanks for the great pix.
