Hi Mike - been a few years since we last had contact! Many names were copied from hand written lists; in some cases handwriting is very unclear + copies have faded and so there are many "best guesses" among listed names. After looking at quite a few such lists I dare to suggest that "Brodesca" might...

Grigio argento

Grigio Argento 20265A by Italver is the basic silver color used by ferrari at this time (towards mid 60's). I think "A" stands for acrylic paint, which were introduced around 1960 or so.

Unleaded & valves

[quote="tyang"] >Hi Kare, >I'd be curoius to see if the roasted valves on that FIAT were directly >related to unleaded fuel. In this case I think I'm quite safe saying yes.
