Barny Brooks in Anglesey has a Garnet Starmist one awaiting or part way through a resto. Pics to follow if I can find them.

EDIT - Here's Steve's car. I saw it at the weekend.


I hope Barney chooses the standard route with his Garnet car. The only reason I get a bit 'evangelical' about restoration to historic standard spec is because such cars are now so incredibly rare. I'm just trying to raise a bit of awareness of the fact. But maximum respect to owners of modified cars too. Your car entirely your choice.

So, with Carl's black painted Aqua car, Steve's Tasman car and Zak Williamson's Honey Starmist car above, that's three mildly modified cars and (possibly) Barney's (standard?) car in progress -

I hope there are others, but fully standard Firenza 1600 / 2000 SLs are otherwise now possibly extinct in the UK?

I must admit I would not have sprayed it black had it not already been sprayed . I will try to leave the rest as original as possible. Just have to decide if to put the Lotus engine in or leave the original in. Will leave the interior as is. Perhaps retrim the from seat as it's split. First to get it running

I forgot about the green 1600 one from the Isle of Man that was sold recently. Not originally green and fitted with side draught Webers for some reason.

This one David?

Again, as you say, mildly modified - non-standard colour etc, but not far off standard. Another one I hope has fallen into sympathetic hands.

It did look good blue. Its in North Weald now on the ramps to check it over and see if the original 2000 engine will fire up. Then to decide if to put the Lotus engine in or sell it.

Keep us updated with lots of pictures and progress, Carl.

I won't try to persuade you in relation to the standard or Lotus engine option... :lol:

Good luck with it, whatever you decide to do. :goodluck:

Fred's old Tasman car, Clemmie, and Zak Williamson's Honey Starmist Firenza are my personal favourites. Perfect original early Firenza colours.

For me, Clemmie would look brilliant with factory optional rostyles and original silver grille - but I think I'm a bit of a lone voice in the wilderness when it comes to promoting originality for the last handful of these cars... :lol:

Who owns Clemmie now?

Steve Bourne owns the Orange Firenza ) and for some time. His previous green Firenza was written off ..
