    Front suspension, rear suspension, Front bumper brackets, There are some other items, but these three tell you straight away.

    This Cortina based Berly has the large upper pressed wishbone, and spring down to the lower wishbone so typical of the Cortina.

    The Sierra Berly has a Marlin fabricated upper wishbone with a coilover spring going up to a chassis mount.

    Its just like knowing the difference between a Triumph and Marina based Roadster by looking at the suspension.


    Maybe Danny can tell because of other more subtle differences, but they pass me by too..........

    ........... front bumper attachment - does this look the same?

    On my iPad Mini the pictures are not sufficiently large or clear to allow me to see those details. I was hoping there was something body wise that stood out.
    Never mind.

    Hi, it's me again, I first noticed it on my(not so) smart phone as (Ebay pings my saved searches) on zooming in on it,it looked at first to be Sierra, my mistake. Having now looked again on my PC, what a plonker !! Still it's getting the ball rolling, and the bidding is starting to move. Sorry Rusty, & thanks guys.

    If we are still talking about the Berlinetta on eBay, it's ending in around three hours, and even if it is Cortina based, right now it seems a bargain. shame it's not a larger engine.

    There is no manufacturer for the Berlinetta nor has there been for quite a few years. Your best bet , lookout for one for sale secondhand, I get to hear of them for sale from time to time. I also have kept parts for Berlys for many years, but the stock is getting less now, but you never can tell I may just have a part that you require. Good idea to get a build manual before you start. Give me a call if you think there is anything I may be able to help with.
