  1. duplicative response on another site:

    You are referring to the "bravo" wheels vs the more common OZ Route 17" wheels right?

    your question might arise from my recent transaction (which was excellent by the way).

    I have the eurospares Bravo replicas, and the only tires (tyres) available are from you, and are the Michelin TB measuring

    215 55 R15 fronts

    295 40 R15 rears

    I found somewhere on the interweb that the original tire (tyre) size for the Siloutte (where the bravo wheels originated) were

    195/50 VR 15 fronts

    285/40 VR 15 rears

    but i can NOT confirm this, i just found it on the internet on a lamborghini site. I sent this information to you, and you confirmed those tires would NOT fit on my eurospares replicas.

    for anyone reading this, Longstone is an excellent company with great product and strong knowledgeable customer service. Buy with confidence, no affiliation.

  3. Hi

    Thank you Sledge4.2

    we do try to be knowledgable, but i have to say that is not always that easy with cars of such low volumes as the Jalpa.

    This is what i have found out about 16" wheels

    That is pretty easy

    205/55 R 16 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ P7 N4 - 205/55 x 16 Tyres (longstonetyres.co.uk)

    225/50 R 16 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ P7 N4 - 225/50 x 16 Tyres (longstonetyres.co.uk)

    However it is these 15"! wheels that seem odd. Are 15" wheels on earlier cars? and are they wider rims?

    would these fit?

    I doubt this is from 1981, see a boat engine and a later Jalpa with rubber bumper, also a green primered QV engine lid, not before 1985 I'd say.
  5. Good catch. The photo when I saw it said 1981, however certainly later.

  7. Hello all,

    Had the pleasure of viewing a 84 jalpa today. Its been sitting in a barn/garage for over 10 years. Little info is known about the overall condition of the car(the owner passed) and the family is dealing with settling loose ends. The car seems to be in ok condition considering its been sitting so long. The car has 16K miles, no key, mouse nest in engine bay, driver seat has a small tear, and some rust in rockers/wheel openings-not terrible. They believe the car ran up until it was parked but not certain.
    I know its pretty hard to estimate without seeing, but what would a ballpark number $ be for a car like this. It appears someone bought a white one on here that ran/drove for 30K.
    What is a reasonable offer for a car with no key and unknown mechanical condition?

    Thanks for any and all input!
  8. Many variables. Did it sit outside on grass or inside a dry, not damp garage? Is there a transferable title? Spare tire & tool kit? They are the same as a Countach & have a significant value. Is the car a euro or US spec car? Shape of interior, etc.
  9. The car has been sitting in a unconditioned garage for a long time. It does have surface mold on the interior but I believe I can rehab that. Currently working on getting a title, spare tire/tool kit isn't there. It says "imported" on door sticker but not sure if its us spec or euro.

    Overall the car has a lot of potential as long as it doesn't require any major mechanical repair.
  10. Hi,
    when you share some details I can for sure help, since I'm running www.jalpa.ch

  12. Having the car sit for 10 years and some of the other issues listed- would budget at least 30 k to get it right again
  13. These are such fun cars to drive- but it is the noise that is intoxicating. many were discarded when they were cheap- can we know how many are still road worthy from the original 410?
