He may have gotten confused with the car having an 87 build date.
My 88 has the distinct dished rear wheels so I'm placing my bet it's an 89 (Renault transmission) and that left hand exhaust was supposedly UK, not USA?
I believe that for the U.S market the single left hand exit was only on the 89 non-SE and the X180-R. So as this car has both the flat OZ's and the LH exit exhaust my money is on an 89, not an 87 long wheelbase.My 88 has the distinct dished rear wheels so I'm placing my bet it's an 89 (Renault transmission) and that left hand exhaust was supposedly UK, not USA?
Between the 87 and S3 errors, I think I would be checking this out just a *little* more closely if I were interested in buying
Definitely tall price. But it is remotely possible it's an 88 with spacers. The wheels look flat when compared directly:The 88 Stevens redesigned cars started building in late '87. As has been mentioned the rear valance is incorrect for that year, and it is hard to tell from the pics whether they are the deep dish wheels.
In either case the price is a little tall.
Roy thinks I'm an expert on Wings, just 'cause there is an Esprit Wing picture folder on TurboEsprit, dedicated just to me.Lastly, have to say that these early non-SE Stevens models always look longer and sleeker with a S4s/early V8 wing since it extends pass the body line (before federal regulations caught up with the later wings)...right, Atwell?
