Default Sunbursts

Here's a publicity photo of a new early 31XX car fitted with sunbursts and wearing the dealer plate. I don't think many people think sunbursts are better, just some like the style and most just want them on their car if delivered that way. Halibrands are clearly the more exotic wheel, being lighter and having more of a sports car heritage as many of the top racing series ran similar wheels. While I think if a car has survived this many years in the configuration it left SA it should be preserved that way, many Cobras today are being converted to boring "day one" clones that do not represent the aura of the cars back in the day where most owners fitted them with optional original factory upgrade parts.
