Straight and Dry Chassis with original floors, headlight buckets and even the depths of the smuggler box is pristine and rust free, as can only be found in cars from mild climates.

The car is quite civilized and comfortable, but also very sporting, and abundantly clear that the car has been properly and professionally restored. Hundreds of photos and extensive restoration details available online.
