Holy crap, look at the price they are asking for that car.  UK listers, would it really sell for something close to 3,750 pounds on that side of the pond?  If so, my buddy and I really need to get going with the export business we keep threatening to start.  That would be maybe a $1500 car over here.

Here's a car in England with California plates that not only has the 
black vinyl sail panels but a vinyl covered roof, as well.

This one has all of the original elements right down to the AED, the 
parachute seat belts, correct bumpers, and the coachline along the 
sides. But I think George Barris, King of the Customizers, did the vinyl 
roof and screwed the new-look sail panels on it!   :-)

The one behind it with the white sail panels and unadulterated roof is 
the stock NADA 3500S. Options are the choices you have when you fill out 
the order sheet at the dealer.

Roland's story helps explain the difference between a car leaving the 
factory with a mismatched wheel/hub/suspension and a factory option.  
That one wasn't in the dealer brochure or the price list. But I'll bet 
that, once the wheel cover was on, it wasn't all that obvious a flaw. 
Bumpers or body panels from another model would probably have been 
noticed before it got out the factory door.

Cheers, y'all.
