Description

French title
Chassis # 06416
Engine No. 142536

- Same owner since 38 years
- Original upholstery
- Never restored, in an original state

Produced in May 1973 and delivered new in France, this car was registered for the first time on 30 July, 1974. The current owner acquired it in May 1978 from one of his acquaintances, thus it has been in the same hands for 38 years! It has never been restored and was only repainted in red, the previous shade and probably the original one was yellow. The bodywork is in original condition and reveals some traces of corrosion, especially around the door bottoms. The flat panel under the front luggage compartment has been removed to be remade, but the custom made piece has never been fitted and will be delivered with the car.
The original black Daytona leather upholstery is well preserved and the matching carpets are in good used condition. The car features electric windows (an option on this series), a Voxson Stereo 8 car radio, beautiful Campagnolo alloy wheels and the odometer displays 84,584 km. The engine starts at the first crank and works well, without smoke or any suspicious sounds. This "Tipo E", which came towards the end of production, features some specific features such as a more square front air intake and thicker bumpers.
According to the tastes of the future owner, this car could remain in this condition or could be restored, whilst maintaining the beautiful upholstery and its alert mechanicals.
