Odd "Arnine" photo on eBay

Post by isaksenj » Sat Apr 16, 2011 6:39 am

An interior photo of what appears to be a reworked R1-9 is currently on eBay:

All longitudinal seats, funky flourescent lighting, smaller diameter fans with the old housings left intact, (rather delicate looking) handbars instead of the strap mechanisms, and what appears to be a R10/12/14-style rollsign housing.

Were there other experimentals beside the 484? (The car with PCC-style "bullet" lights)?
