    If I recall the models correctly, all but the Monza had just two of the
Webbers, including the turbo-charged version. I believe the Monza was the
model with the 4 carbs and there were problems keeping them synced but it
was still a very nice engine. Sturdy, compact and lightweight. The gearbox
was a bit of an oddity though. If I had the space for one, I wouldn't mind
having another, as I had a '60 model.
