    Pete, given enough "forensic analysis", I'm sure that you can turn any old kangeroo bone into a long lost classic!

    Now, now Horsey ... you know as well as I do that I won't need any "forensic analysis" 'cause the chassis numbers will be nice and clear.

    Think about that one for a while ;) ... for those that think chassis numbers are everything :)

    Okay, fellas, thanks for taking the thread off in a new direction. The question remains. Does anyone know the current whereabouts of chassis numbers 0061S, 0127E or 0162ED?

    Haven't have enough time to sort out 225 Sports, but 0162/ED may have been scrapped after a fire.

    What comes to 061/S and 0127/E, one of them must be 1 of 2 Vignale "thin pillar"-coupes built, the other one being 065/S.

    Best wishes, Kare

    Please Kare,
    Can you give more information about the 2 "thin-pillar" coupes and what car became 065S, I've never see anything about this. It's very interesting !!!

    Yes, 0127/E had the thin C-pillar like 065/S. It also had very unique decorative trim along the sides that incorporated the front turn signals. Any idea where this car is today?

    I doubt this very much as I have never seen anything to support the claim. It would also mean that two very special and almost identical cars would have been built one year apart (Yes, I suspect the other on instead of being 0127/E is 061/S). For a while I suspected that we are talking about one and the same car here, but it seems not to be the case: the trunk lids are clearly different.

    Best wishes, Kare
