Push hard and live
I like this theory.:wink2:So maybe I don't understand all this but it seems to me that the worker who was installing the plate dropped the first one and didn't want to bother taking anything apart so he(or she) just went and got another one???
However, the car offers an unusual forensic trail. It is almost entirely original, and unmolested. But, they did a few things. Repainted the Giallo Paglierino to (ugh) Alfa Red. Did some unspecified work on the right front suspicion.
All of the tags are missing from the car, which may have been done prior to the repaint. I don’t think they repainted the engine bay, however. But, since the Touring tags are gone, I’m guessing that’s when the ID plate would have been unscrewed and dropped into the void.
A nice piece to recover. Hopefully the others will peak out from somewhere as well.
