The condition and originality of this vehicle is testament to the care and attention by its former keepers. It’s rare to find such a highly original car, that retains its DNA and patina that cannot be replicated when project vehicles and partly stripped vehicles are ‘restored’ for resale, this car represents the pinnacle of the pre-73 models
