hi all

i was looking at a 75 b the other day that had the badges and originally 
was green(sort of an olive green not brg). what i found interesting was it 
didn't have rostyles but  alloy wheels( not le wheels) which were stamped 
made in england. the car was originally a calif model so i am told. the 
owner said the wheels had a centerpiece but these are missing.

is this the same typoe of model ross refers to??
