We all know you guys drive on the wrong side
I'm being sarcastic of course but I truly am interested in whether the current livery as shown above is the original livery and by chance I recreated it or by some strange coincidence, they repainted in a livery that nearly exactly matches mine?

The listing says "original chassis and body" although the Angola car clearly had several bodies and a multitude of aerodynamic modifications, so I wonder if they are one and the same.

Pick one of these from Le Mans 2012 http://www.gt40s.com/forum/375622-post8.html - age eligibility implicity was plateau 5 and 1080 did win the Angolan Championship (!) so give or take a change of color scheme......
