    2735GT, and many other SWB similarly now dressed with wider wheels, would be more attractive in my view fitted with period original specification wheels, which were narrower and of nicer proportion. Compare to stance of 2689GT above.

    I tend to agree with Lancia about wheels. It may amuse you to know that when I imported 2689GT it had 3 different size wheels (and was thoroughly trashed in every way). It had been bought by a Roman for his young son as a driver; if you know anything about traffic in Rome you'll understand the dents everywhere. Nice to see it in the hands of a real enthusiast now. He gave me a ride in it a while back, it was as I remembered it. Open the throttles and it coughs and sputters until you reach 3 or 4000 RPM. Then hold on as all hell breaks loose.

    The first series cars were fitted with 16-inch wheels. These are the best looking of all the SWB's with the more attractive nose.
