    TBH I think this is really striking

    One of the prettiest Sprite Customs I have ever seen.

    And it’s got a really Honkin Alfa Engine under the bonnet, like 15o HP worth IIRC.there were also a number if BE’s in Hemmings now.

    That Alfa mill is the cast iron version 2L, just over 100HP in standard trim. And having been gone through by Tom Sahines it's certainly impressive. I notice the Webers are the contemporary "Spanish" ones, too. Looks like a great car, would be a fun vintage racer.
