Yes, I sent contact info to Ragni, but no reply. Very difficult to navigate their website.Hello Don,
Did you try to contact Franco Ragni for your trunk script ?
From my point of view, Giallo Paglierino body always match with black interior and anthracite carpet.
This is the perfect color of Giallo Paglierino :

I can send you a sample if you want :laugh2:
By the way, I received a nice note from Dave Rundle, the Aussie that restored 01481 while completing its conversion to RHD. The museum he sold it to for a nice price is offering it for resale. At $299,000 AUD! That's about $197,000 USD, presumably with "offers entertained". We can hope.
The discussion around the painting of the heat system seams to be a long sorry.Jay,
Both it, and the heat exchanger housing, had a slight texture. Yes, I'm used to seeing a non-texture here, but these two items, almost certainly never disturbed, were done with a texture. The one I've pictured appears more "wrinkly" than it actually is, probably due to the bright lighting. It's as close as we could get to the original.
Or perhaps you wish to claim that Touring did all of their cars rigidly the same?
Big difference IMO between a 2000 and 2600 Spider ... one ran an engine at the end of it's production life while the other a modern at the time straight 6.
The car we know as the "Berlina" was introduced in the US in 1969 with a 1750, all-aluminum, engine.
The model 10200 four door was referred to in the US as a "Sedan". It may have been referred to as a berlina (small case "b") in Germany, but I'm not sure of that. It had a similar cast-iron 2000 to the Coupe and Roadster, but with slightly lower compression and a two-barrel downdraft carb.
But my point still stands, ie. Alfa Romeo made more of these engines than just for the Spiders hence the high engine number may not be erroneous.
Gee I'm not sure I can handle learning 2 things in one day ...Pete.....
There's no drama about the high engine number. It makes sense just from a spare-parts point of view.
However, the existence of Sedans and Sprints does not explain my engine. The Roadster engines were "00204...", the Sprints were "00205...", and the Sedans were "00200...".
My extra engine is a "00204", so only intended for Roadster use. The Sprint and Roadster engines are otherwise identical, however.
