A full restoration was made, including the following :

Full rebuilt of the engine by Rod Briggs and South Cerney Engineering

Body paint, hood and upholstery, wheels, tires, are as new.

Today, the car is absolutely perfect. It is art of a private collection and since the restoration, it has only run for 1000 km.

Ready to give a fantastic pleasure to the future new owner.
