Vehicle History
The car offered at the National Stadium auction is a classic example of well restored Italian spider. This car underwent a full body and paint restoration a few years ago. The deep red matches well the Pininfarina designed lines and arches of the car, on top of the top level restoration, this vehicle is the very sought for covered headlights version. Interior was also overhauled, new seat and panel upholstery was done and every other panel was cleaned or replaced. Engine was overhauled as well, now it can run on traditional 95 gas. All these elements make this small Italian roadster very attractive.
