stationed in Spain. He brought the car home when his tour was over and it remained in his

possesion until his passing. Having covered only 35,400 Kilometers meant this car was an

ideal candidate for restoration. It retains nearly all of its original sheetmetal, including

the floorpans. Paint markings that were discovered during disassembly were recreated to

give this car the extra detail to set it apart from most. It has been restored following

concours guidelines while also performing tasteful upgrades for troublefree ownership such

as; stainless brake and fuel lines, Weber carburetors and electronic ignition.  This car

performs flawlessly and is sure to give the new owner years of enjoyment.
