        Offy made a similar one back in the day and they are still available. Guess who's got one for his M5 build

          Years ago I would have wanted that, but now I like to keep my cars as stock as possible.
          When I was a senior in high school, one of my classmates built hot rods and only used inline 6's, and usually dual carbs and split exhaust.

            Notice the shade of the blue and the lower one the mask was shifted off to one side a bit. Dont matter what it sold for, the pictures are worth downloading and keeping.

              I agree Kevin, HOWEVER understand while this may be NOS, this also may be one that never was installed due to the paint being defective too. I have seen other NOS clamps (-albeit they were the bigger ones) where the paint was not nearly as opaque. Using this one as a 'sample' may not necessarily be accurate.



              Tom, while this might seem a little pricey, consider it this way. Right now with Doug Bruce and others gone, we are struggling to find someone capable of restoring stainless to a high standard. This one could likely be cleaned/buffed in a home shop with minimal effort or expertise, then repainted and installed on a Fine-point vehicle. It already has the correct fastener and the bar on the back, which is costly if you must source those as those are not correctly reproduced either. I think we all would agree that buying time has become very expensive, and this purchase was likely a timesaver for someone.
