Car looks great, many congratulations. The bellhousing is the same as my dry sump. If you need any pics I have lots during my restoration. Just let me know.

Beautiful car - love this colour combination. And yes, what is the square thing on the roof stereo? Some sort of light?

Yes checked with Andy before I bought it Monaco white, tobacco and roof stereo. Spoke to him again today and looks like this was the second one in this spec, 1st being the FYEO car and 4th white turbo Esprit. 3 or 4 white cars in total with Tobacco leather. Waiting for the full research though

there are pictures on this forum from the Belgium "motorshow" (i thought its Belgium) there is also a White LHD tobacco with roof stereo on the picture,

but i ask my selfs, how many Tobacco with roof radio, my car is silver, but i think only the white cars and my Silver car are deliverd in Tobacco brown, i know its very rare!

and i am very happy with it, because my car is the first car ever build! after the essex run,

 

looking out for the whole research!
