Description

Its red paint was laid in an older restoration, but remains lovely and near perfect today. As a collection piece this limited production roadster is one of just 276 and presents extremely well and as a collector car is a fabulous example. The black interior is complete and correct ready for a new driver. The engine shows the patina of a driving car despite its status as a collector car, because it is occasionally taken out on the open road. Its obscure and allusive nature make this roadster not just sporty and fun but collectible in the purest sense of the word.
