|The Blakely Bernardi Is An Automobile Produced In The 1980s By Blakely Auto Works Of Princeton, Wisconsin, USA. This Model Is Named After Enrico Bernardi, Italian Inventor Of The Gasoline Internal-Combustion Engine And Automobile Pioneer. The Body Of The Bernardi Was Built At The Factory And Featured An Unusual Form Of Fiberglass Construction. Instead Of A Single Layer Of Fiberglass, As Is Common In Other Kit Cars, The Bernardi Body Tub (The Portion Between The Passenger Compartment And The Frame Or Road) And Other Body Components Used A Composite Sandwich Consisting Of One Layer Of Fiberglass, One Of Stiff Plastic Foam, And Finally A Second Layer Of Fiberglass. The Result Is A Heavier Body Than Usual For Kit Cars, But One With Reputedly Greater Stiffness And Sound Absorption Than The Single-Layer Approach. The Mechanical Components, Including Engine, Suspension, And Transmission, Could Be Drawn From The Ford Pinto, Mercury Bobcat, Or Ford Mustang II. The Car's Design Is Reminiscent Of The Neo-Classical 1950s British MG TD. The Grill Of The Bernardi Makes An Impressive Statement With Its Chrome Horizontal Design And The Hood Sports The Blakely Hood Ornament. Styling Exudes Elegance With Headlights Perched Between The Fender And The Hood. In The Interior The Steering Wheel Is A Simple But Elegant 3-Spoke Classical Affair In Wood And Metal With The Blakely Logo Superimposed In The Center And Woodgrain Accent On Dash Frames Gauges.
