    I came across a 16" x 5" Borrani wheel with what appears to be partial RW number digits of 0 7 7 stamped on the outer rim edge after the "C.BORRANI 16X5 RECORD" and perhaps manufacturing date code of "9-54" on the inner rim edge.
    It supposedly came off a 250 GT Europa 5+ decades ago, but based on above details, could that be correct application and if yes, which other models it might've come with ?

    Also, a 3-carburetor Air Cleaner assembly with FISPA tag Tipo 2231.01 supposedly from SI 330 GT.
    If correct, which other models it might fit or be accurate for ?

    RW3077 (16 x 5K) - application is yes 250 Europa GT. (My notes say TR front application as well, but not sure if that is accurate, or which TR)

    Timo: RW 3077 is the correct front wheel for a 250 Testa Rossa (Pontoon style).

    Thanks Dyke (and again "lancia"),

    It appears to be in pretty good shape (with nice "patina"), i.e. not much oxidation on aluminum or curb rash on the bead edges.
    I guess it'll probably be closest I ever come to "having/owning" a "Pontoon" 250 Testa Rossa (or Europa GT). :)

    So the air cleaner housing still remains a bit of mystery ?

    Timo: the air cleaner is from a Series 1 330 GT. It should fit any Tipo 209 motor due to the carb spacing, but the later cars have different style air cleaners.

    I was not aware until just recently the old nuts were made by LOBO and they have gone out of business.

    Thanks Howard !
    So what you’re saying is that even if components, hardware or parts are supplied by Factory authorized/official network supplier, it doesn’t necessarily mean the items are authentic or correct. :eek: ;) :rolleyes:
