Evaluation: Five owners from new and stored for many years. Formerly owned by Nick Alexander. All original except the varnish on the wood and a few minor details. Even the side curtains are original. The paint is buffed through in places and the upholstery is torn and stiff but largely complete. Neat, lightly oil misted engine compartment and chassis.
Bottom Line: Sold by RM from the Nick Alexander collection at Monterey in 2009 for $110,000. It would appear that the Nick Alexander provenance and really impressive preservation didn’t survive a second exposure, but the reported high bid here is less than it should have brought even without the Alexander Collection hype of 2009.
