With French origin, this superb Eden Roc was registered on April 17, 1965. Its unique and endearing history is largely traced thanks to copies of old registration documents. The car was notably the star of various advertisements including a film made for Philipps for which the car had been repainted yellow. It was sold under the hammer of Arcturial's Mr. Hervé Poulain in 2000. Its current owner acquired it in 2017 and then put it through an incredible restoration for almost 40 000€. The renovation of the bodywork was completed from the bare chassis and was mainly carried out by GTSouvenirs. A new upholstery and soft top complete the package. It is fitted with four new chrome Borrani rims and white wall tires to enhance the car's appearance. The Fiat 126 650cc engine, which had replaced the original one has been fully refurbished. More powerful, it greatly increases the driving pleasure. It will be delivered with a substantial restoration file including invoices and photos as well as its jack, technical guide, and it's very rare Autobianchi tool kit. Ready to hit the road, this Eden Roc, restored without cost considerations, is an incredible opportunity to acquire a timeless cabriolet whose charm and flare are unmatched.
