Value of a Non-Matching (Engine) Esprit Turbo

My Federal (USA) model 1985 looks somewhat like your arrangement. Electric box cover is just flat aluminum secured by a tab at bottom and two M6 screws at the top.

I did wonder about the cover when I saw the original picture with the header tank - hence my request for an image from the rear.

Looks like Thomas has the closest match.

A better picture of an '85 Federal style with cover installed. SteveV8 has templates for this style boot carpet.

Which also has the smaller plastic trims on the internal 'butresses' above the engine cover.   Looks like mystery solved.

Does look radically different to the Domestic / Rest of World covers and engine bay surrounds.

@kalypso - Nice example you've found there. Assuming it's in good shape mechanically, you can enjoy the car now and sort the details as you go. Get it bought :)

Do you guys have an opinion on what fair value on a car of this condition like this is?

I've used Hagerty and BringaTrailer as an idea but they're kinda all over the place. I figure you guys have seen the photos and can chime in with your two cents.
