Ford GT40 Fiat X19

In Showroom, p119, we mention the road-going GT40 MkIII using Ford Anglia overriders. Crafty pilfering has saved many specialist makers from the costs of making lights, handles and switches in tiny quantities. Chapman used Anglia bumpers on the Europa, Marina handles and Rover SD1 lights on the Esprit. Lamborghini’s Diablo has Nissan 300ZX headlights. Lancia went to Fiat for the Stratos: X1/9 handles, 850 rear lights, 124 dials and column stalks. But tough luck if you own an X1/9 – Stratos replica builders have snaffled all the spares.
