The new owner of B8/1 will be embarking on a full restoration. As this car, more than any other Nagari, is so significant, it is important to return it to exactly how it was back in 1969 in this restoration. Step one is to gather up the bits required to perform that restoration. That includes wheels. Bear in mind that this car, the prototype, was constructed before those original Nagari mags, the ones with the steel rims, were produced. In fact, as seen in the publicity photographs on the car's release and in all of the magazine articles, the wheels were pressed steel sports wheels. This is an appeal for information or advice that may lead to finding some of  those wheels (see photograph).
My first step would to be to ask Bill Davidson which I will do tomorrow.
