Chariot Red Chariot Red Temporary pictures, too many things wrong here. RF wheel is 1500 type (sorry), and it has Coupe seats and dash, missing door top rail. The paint is a 2k from a German manufacturer called Sandox, but it looks to dark to me (similar to Orient Red). The owner says it was originally a 1500 Coupe which he rebodied as a 1600 roadster.

Cam Cunningham: Photos of my car's interior. The dashboard has been covered in a black rexine type material by a previous owner but there appears to be red paint under it. It has non-standard red carpets as fitted by a PO, and it is fitted with a Moto-Lita steering wheel.
