- Completely restored in the early 2000s and repainted in the original two-tone livery, the car is still in very good condition. The bottom of the driver and passenger seats were thermally insulated by the current owner with TEKNOFIBRA material to make the car more comfortable even during long journeys. The car is supplied with the driver #39 guide , the tonneau and two top covers: an English green interior cover and a waterproof exterior cover. Interior is in excellent condition.
