    How do you tell the difference? As a Berlinetta owner I'm not so well versed on the Cabrio.

    Quickest I/D look at the rad grille.

    Hunter = Factory built car - Vertical alloy bars form the radiator grille.

    Cabrio = Self built car - Usually wire mesh grille but builders preferences have led to some other designs, including similar vertical bars. Peter.

    I have noticed a few cars with the vertical grille. I could see something similar on my Berli. It would probably be too easy to phone Marlin and buy one to fit my Berlinetta though, knowing my luck.

    Looks well built - Short wheel base with no boot.

    True however in some cases it makes them a better car as you have a car built to a known standard whereas kit cars seem to fall into very good or some I have seen downright lethal!!
    My insurance company like my Hunter better as well because as they said its a "real car"
    In the past I have had a Duton Phaeton and a Clan Crusader [modified NI Irish spec] Both were well built cars, but the insurance company liked the Clan better its all down to risk for them

    The down right lethal is not limited to self builds - ask a few other second owners of Hunters!
