IMHO that's just someone wasting a listing fee on eBay.

One could debate whether Xs will ever get to any kind of collector status, but this guy has a "Jay Leno" price on a car that has been "improved" with a 1900cc turbo diesel!

I thought that there were no right hand drive models made until about 1977.

... but certainly not a RESTORATION... more like a RESTIFICATION... HA!

I love it though... it takes real JUEVOS and real DOLLARES, and real FORTITUTE to turn a blind eye to improvements and RESTORE a car to EXACT factory condition.

I think if this truly was a restoration, it might indeed be worth the money asked... but alas, it isn't.

Sure makes us LOOK and YAK though... and besides, I don't have the necessary ingredients to restore a car anyway!  HA!


My best,

That was my understanding, as well (1976 or 1977, depending on who you ask). I don't think there were any RHD 1972 models anyway, since most '72's were built for the Italian/Euro market (AFAIK).

Also note the chromed Lido bumpers (not made in 1972), the later-style targa bar plastic vents/emblems (early cars had the "Bertone" logo cast into the plastic, not on a separate metal piece like this later type), and the rear panel & trunk lid are missing the stainless-steel surround trim. Those don't look like early-model seats or door panels, either. Oh, and it should have red rear turn lenses, not amber!

Obviously, knowing the actual chassis number (VIN) of this car would answer all questions of it being a '72 or not.

... assuming it's still available ... I have no idea, but it is a real '72 with a 2 DIGIT vin (!) and was being offered for around 5000 Euro at the time ...

You're right, of course. I was thinking of '74 USA X when comparing the seats, then thoughts jumped to the tail lenses. So I got 6 out of 7? LOL.

Hi Bernice...

If it was me who mentioned it, then yes I have seen (and heard!) this car, approximately 5 years ago at the Stanford Hall Auto Italia car show. I do believe the owner mentioned that he still had the original engine, but didn't want to put any extra mileage on it Have to admit that I didn't realise at the time it that was from '72, just looked like a late 70's Lido to me, and because I didn't realise it was from the early seventies I also didn't spot that it must have been converted from left hand drive. I do know of at least one other car in the country that was converted to RHD.
