Thank you Franco.
Ciao!TJ, judging from what they have fabricated so far I reckon these people are able to make anything well, those contours are pretty. The nose and lower valance illustrate their technique, a section at time, the buck is the thing that that remains fixed while all the shaping is referenced to it, incidentally the buck would have been a lot of work to create again we see another discipline wood work, restoration it is so diverse.
some 1900CSS where equipped with a floorshift gearbox , this is a original AR gearbox and not a nardi. ( see picture 1 ) and these cars have a not a U shape in the alu column.
There is also the NARDI aftersale conversion for mounting on the gearbox
( see picture 2 ) , you can remove all the steering/column shifting parts , but then you have an U shape in the alu column.
the Nardi steering wheel was an option for all the 1900 models.
If there is interest :
I have made NEW repro copy of the original NARDI conversion for mounting on the gearbox with modified better H shifting and a locking system for 5th gear and reverse .
I make also repro of the non U shape alu column and make conversion .
We do also make conversions and complete rebuilts from steering/column shifter to original AR floorshifter ( picture 3 ) and (picture 2 , which was rebuilt and convert from steering to floorshifter )
