Details and History:
This car started life overseas when it was purchased by a member of the US Navy who was
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.
