    I remember the 'SWB' advertised in Classic Cars, on a half-page ad, reading clearly that it was passed by Brocket as the real thing.

    Many of them were fake, they were all purchased on credit, and for him it was a business. That wasn't a collection, it was just an inventory.

    Probably best described as "re-constructed".

    Heard he got out of jail too. Anyone know what he's doing? Btw I met him once. He came around my model shop back in 1992 or so with another local collector during the January auctions. He was a real snob.

    Speaking of this car, does anyone have any period photos of it, with it's original body (photos earlier than what is depicted in Marcel Massini's Vignale book)?...
